How tall is Pamela Rabe

Pamela Rabe's Height

5ft 11 ¼ (181 cm)

Canadian-born Australian actress best known for playing Joan Ferguson in TV series Wentworth. In an article she once said: "All my family are tall [Rabe is 1.8 metres]. My mother has offered this to all of us. The others had the good taste not to accept it. I wear it inside out."

I have always collected tall women in my life. I don’t think I’m particularly obsessed with my height — I was brought up with my father’s advice: be proud, walk tall.

When you are tall, people assume that you should be majestic. It is funny because so many tall women feel different, I think, especially when they are defining their sexual attractiveness — when you are in your teens you just want to look like everybody else.

There are so many pressures to be smaller, bend down, try to blend in with the crowd, be feminine (whatever that means) — to actually keep your head up through that is hard.

Did you decide to go with 181, Rob?
Editor Rob
Yeah, more I saw the stronger 5ft 11 seemed likelier.

It would be great if Kate Box was given a page on celebheights!

Pamela Rabe is an even 6' tall. No estimation required. This is widely known amongst her fans and current stats, and straight from her.

Rob, are you familiar with Kate Box? She claims 6' here: Click Here
She certainly looks quite tall on the show, my first impression was maybe somewhere in 5'11 range, but she can actually look a bit taller than Pamela in a scene... Is she really a big 6' though?

with Robert it is tricky ground, but if she edged out Pamela, then near 6ft might not be too hard to imagine.

She does have her height down as 181cm in an episode, actually!
I know that some of those listings I've seen have been a bit unbelievable, but it wouldn't surprise me if that's what she claims and more importantly measures.

It’s great that I have seen her husband Roger Hodgman listed as 5’8” on an online site! 😃👌

I’m glad she wears it inside out!

Without the lean I am sure that Pamela Rabe would be 5'11"!

Last Nov 20th, I did a write-up on Nicole da Silva and described her as coming over as a miniature powerhouse on 'Wentworth Prison', in so many words, looking much more compact than her slim, muscular 5ft6.
Tonight, I nodded off in the familiar film 'Mr and Mrs Smith', waking up to an episode of 'Wentworth Prison', spotting the ultimately tall and overpoweringly scary actress Pamela Rabe, who plays Ferguson, and looks a good 180cm of fearsome, domineering nastiness! I bet she gives me nightmares tonight, and if so, here's a token of my appreciation: 😝😝😝!
She gets 5ft11, minimum. In fact, I will settle for 5ft11.5.

Pamela Rabe is 183.

In heels on Wentworth she is not far off 6'5 Aaron Jeffrey.

She absolutely looks the height sbe is.

Some women can be very tall and still maintain a delicate, feminine look. Pamela is definitely not one of them...
Andrea said on 25/Jul/16
Her costar Socratis Otto called her over 6' on Twitter... Click Here
And he himself has claimed 6'1, even if i don't think he looks that tall...
Andrea said on 25/Jul/16
It is still a "description" then? 180 is really the minimum she looks on the show...
Editor Rob
yes, here is a Picture of it
Andrea said on 24/Jul/16
Rob, is 180 her actual claim? She does look very imposing in Wentworth and in small heels (no more than 2 inches) basically towers all the other girls!!! She's probably the only actress from the show who doesn't need any downgrade xD
Easily 5'11, she can look 8 inches taller than Danielle and a full head taller than Kate Atkinson!
She also holds her own next to Aaaron and makes him look no more than 6'4!
Editor Rob
it was in an early article I believe, from 20+ years ago, the exact line I wrote down.
