Olivia has made another appeal, this time for the people of Ukraine.

How shocking to hear that, apart from lacking food, pregnant women don’t even have proper maternity equipment. This terrible war……

Olivia is one of the best character actresses, ever. She cleans up well & is actually pretty. She is a bit taller than average but not 5'7" as often, listed.
I just adore her.

She's definitely 5ft 6. Not below. Same height as Emma Stone in a photo, 3.5 inches shorter than phoebe waller Bridge and several inches taller than helena bonham Carter and gillian anderson who I'm sure would have both had a heel advantage over olivia

She's a great actress, in both drama and comedy. She looked around 3 inches shorter than 5'9 range David Mitchell in Peep show. 5'6 is fair

From what I’ve seen of her there’s no way she’s 5’6
Jtm said on 24/Nov/20
I thought 5’5 max in the favorite.

Nice sneakers add an inch to an inch & a half. Never knew you were British, Rob.
Love your site.

Rob, could you add The Favourite and TV series Fleabag and The Crown to her credits?

It's good to see Olivia is appealing on behalf of starving children. When celebrities make these appeals, they carry that much more weight.

Olivia used to have herself listed in the Spotlight directory as 5ft 6, but at one point got an inch added...I never thought she looked as tall as 5ft 7, her original claim of 5ft 6 was more believable.

This actress has grown on me! She was fantastic in 'Tyrannosaur', which was a difficult part to play and her TV series parts speak volumes for her acting abilities!
I reckon she's 5ft5.5. I had a look at the photo from Dominik of her standing with Jessie J and David Tennant!

With David Tennant and Jessie J, Olivia looks at most 5'6" and might be slightly under that.
