He's clearly taller than any of the 6ft2 guys who Rob has met so he can rule that out.

6ft3 overall is fine. Can look a little above or below it...

Same fan with Paul, and Joonas Suotamo Click Here

6’2” is a terrible listing!
Darksol64 said on 8/Jan/23
Shoulder bone is pretty much at Rob's eye level that's consistent with a 6'3 guy, I've never seen a 6'2 guy have that high of a shoulder next to Rob.

Definitely losing height as far as eye-level goes but how much? Hard to say.

I'd say definitely not less than a weak 6'3 or solid 190.

Weak 6’3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/21
Edged by Sorbo and Levi but edges Welling and Routh
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/21
Falls into almost 6ft3 range overall.

6ft2½ might be a tad too low though
Slim 6'1.75 said on 6/Sep/21
He’s taller than Brandon routh

Fantastic actor

Looks too short to be 6’3,maybe 6’2 mark is nearer
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Jun/21
🍎 Paul, the guy with the cidery name, can have 6ft2.75 this time round. 🍎

I was going to go with 6ft2.5 but I changed my mind when I saw the average.

Looks 6'2.5-6'2.75 here

Flat 190cm

190 on the dot, same deal as Chris Hemsworth and Dave Bautista
Slim 6'1" said on 10/Nov/20
Same as Chris Hemsworth, 190 on the nose
Slim 6'1@ said on 5/Nov/20
6 2 and seven eighths 190cm on the nose
J-Dog said on 16/Oct/20
If you watch in him in Season 3 of 24 he's a minimum 6.5" -7" taller than 5'8.5" Kiefer Sutherland. I think Rob is correct he's not below 190.5cm at all. He also holds a much looser posture in general and is not "Henry Cavill" level height conscious. I believe the lowest he could be is 190cm but I wouldn't be surprised with 190.5cm/6'3". In fact I think he's 6'3". Not everyone is going to stand at full posture, particularly in pictures with someone ~7" shorter...going by just one picture isn't sufficient....
Slim 6'1 said on 6/Oct/20
190 on the dot like chris Hemsworth
Editor Rob
Blackthorne when standing at his tallest really is nearer 6ft 3 than 2...
Eric W. Tam said on 20/Sep/20
Lol funny how he's listed as 75.5 inches on the dot on Google and thus rounded to 6'4.... nah he's a solid 6'3 and dips to 6'2.5 at most in the evening, not 6'3.5.
Slim 6'1" said on 6/Aug/20
190 on the nose 6 2 7/8
Mickie said on 29/Jun/20
It's celebheights, where precision counts... Maybe we can get a 6'2.75" listing here. That seems fair.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/19
Possibly 190cm but not as low as 188cm
Peter 179cm said on 17/Dec/18
Looks like an example of 189cm to me.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 7/Nov/18
Those who are saying that Paul doesn't look over 6'2", are probably forgetting the fact that his posture's looser than Rob's. He looks at least a good 6'2.5", maybe 6'2.75"
Editor Rob
Paul was a guy who used to put down 6ft 2 as his height, but he just seemed taller than that in TV shows and in person. 2.75 would be a bit of a possibility, but that might be lowest I'd ever guess.
Bobby said on 5/Nov/18
6'2 by the scale but he's slouching and losing posture, maybe a weak 6'3? If he straightened up, I can definitely see him clearing 6'2 by a good fraction. Maybe 189cm range.
Mickie said on 28/Oct/18
Looks closer to 6'2" in this picture. Maybe 189 range?
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Aug/18
@ Jordan87 - We can't always go 100% on pictures alone! I'm going to have to see him act before I can give an accurate analysis, but until then, I shall settle for Rob's 6ft3 and come back later with my tail between my legs if I think otherwise when I've seen him perform! 🐒

Nik said on 2/Aug/18
@ Rob - Absolutely! He is definitely too tall to to be a flat 6'2"! The average voters may be correct, 25 people must know a thing or two! On the other hand I think your listing is reasonable!
Nik said on 2/Aug/18
Nice photograph!
Nik said on 1/Aug/18
Paul may be slightly under 6'3" and I can buy the average vote of 6'2.69", but no less!
Editor Rob
To be fair, I understand why Blackthorne used to get listed 6ft 2, but he seems too tall to only be that mark.
Nik said on 1/Aug/18
6'2" - ✖️
6'3" - ✔️
Nik said on 31/Jul/18
@ Jordan87

Rob has Paul down as 6'3" so technically he is saying that he is at least 6'3" too.
Jordan87 said on 30/Jul/18

He is 6'2 on the dot with Rob. Look at the picture above for Christ Sake. " At Least 6'3" ? Um how about no.
Editor Rob
He generally looks over 6ft 2 in most of what he's done, though there is a greater chance he could measure under 6ft 3 than over it barefoot.
Nik said on 22/Jul/18
He is 6'3" at the very least! 🎩's off to his agency!
World Citizen said on 12/Jul/18
Looks nowhere near 6 ft 3.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Jun/18
I think Paul Blackthorne and Tom Welling share the same red line by a laser pointer on the top of their head.
Zampo said on 6/May/18
A comfortably solid 6'3 man. At worst 190 cm.
abcde said on 11/Apr/18
looks like a legit 190
Jordan87 said on 27/Dec/17
If you look at the way Paul hips are placed, he is giving a lean. Rob has the posture advantage. If you Straighten him up I bet he is going to hit at least 6'2.5.
World Citizen said on 23/Dec/17
Looks 6 ft 2
EM said on 26/Nov/17
He looks 6'2" in this picture. But could measure taller, perhaps?
Editor Rob
actually Paul had his height listed as 6ft 2 firstly in the spotlight directory...but actually he looks over it in person for sure.
Slim 184 said on 3/Nov/17
A 6’3.25” upgrade is necessary.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/17
W/h Rob he actually looks similar to how Colin Salmon looks...
Slim 6' said on 1/Nov/17
190-191.5 legit 6’3” guy right here.
Slim 6' said on 22/Oct/17
Agree with rampage clover, with great posture he can look 7 CM taller than 184 Stephen amell.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Oct/17
Strong 6ft3 is possible. Does look taller than Ramsey and of course Amell...
Andrea said on 14/Jul/17
Can you add the mugshot, Rob?
He may well be similar to Lars in person but he looks an inch shorter, here! Not over 6'2 in the picture...
Editor Rob
I#ll add it, but I think he can stretch up to 6ft 3 as he really looked it. Certainly I thought Amell was standing better than Paul, there's a good 2 inches between them in person.
Balrog said on 6/Jul/17
Looks like a legit 6'3" to me. More chances of being over than under.
S.J.H said on 5/Jul/17
Very similar to michael shannon i could imagine. 6'3 anytime in the morning and drop close to 6'2'75" lowest. But he look more 6'2 with rob
Andrea said on 21/Jun/17
Is this a new picture or it's been on here for a while?
He does look more 6'2 than 6'3 range with you...
I haven't seen more than a few eps of Arrow (a few years ago) but he never looked over 6'3 to me, even if you had him at 6'3.5 or 6'3.75 at that time, I think. Do you think he could be 6'2.5-6'2.75 range or he must be right around the 6'3 mark? Did he look taller than Brandon Routh in person?
Editor Rob
Blackthorne in person is comfortably taller than Routh, think he'd measure right on 6ft 3, similar to lars mikkelsen really.
Paleman said on 3/Apr/17
Could you add season 3 of 24 to his TV series credits, Rob? Played the season's main villain... Interestingly, his character was described in one episode to stand at only 5'10" even though this guy is obviously huge! 6'3" range seems about fine.
jack said on 17/Feb/17
rob are you going to this Click Here
Editor Rob
no, myself and Jenny are doing a stall at another event that weekend.
God said on 19/Dec/16
Looks close to 6'4" to me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/16
Looks very tall on Arrow.
184.3cm (Night) said on 30/Mar/16
He does look very similar to Brandon routh on the show. Not as tall as Salmon thats for sure.
189 cm man said on 17/Mar/16
hey rob he could be 193-194 cm
Editor Rob
compared to some he can look a strong 6ft 3 range.
Hypado said on 18/Mar/15
Paul Blackthorne's height is 6ft 3.75in (192 cm)

Very, very tall in the tv series ARROW.
Andrea said on 11/Dec/14
Rob, did you meet him or just decided to downgrade him to his agency height? In any case, this is a better listing ;)
Editor Rob
I've never met him, but from seeing him with a couple of friends I think his 6ft 3 flat is on the money.
Mike said on 6/Dec/14
Colin Salmon is the tallest actually.
mike said on 22/Oct/14
He looks huge on Arrow! He's easily the tallest one in the show i'd give him 192.
cole said on 2/Apr/14
Well he's definitely not under 6'3. He looked much taller than supposed 6'2 Tim DeKay on 'White Collar'. But then DeKay can look close in height with 6'1 Sharif Atkins on the show, so he might not be much over 6'1.5. Near 2 inches taller than DeKay was the impression I got of Blackthorne compared to him, so I'd say 6'3.5 is a good shout. And another thing: Paul was described as 5'10 in '24'! Just goes to show how little you can actually put into an actor's listing on a show/movie.
Lo sgozzatore said on 12/Feb/13
Rob, in Arrow, he works with Roger Cross that you met and he looks a bit taller. I'd say nearly 6'3, not 6'3.5! Well, he could be it in the morning...
Balrog said on 5/Dec/12
I think the listing is perfect,Rob. Saw this guy in The Gates and now in Arrow and in both series he looks very tall.
Hyphenate said on 22/Jan/12
Blackthorne played Harry Dresden in the Dresden Files--the character is 6'4" and he fit the height requirement. In the novels, Dresden drove a Volkswagen Bug, but Blackthorne's legs were so long they ended up scrapping that, and put him into a Jeep instead. So yeah, he's pretty darn tall.
Phantom said on 30/Apr/08
I know him too. Very definitely 6'3"
Anonymous said on 28/Jan/07
I just saw the premiere episode of his new series, "The Dresden Files". My first impression was he's not more than 6'0", but then again on the show he has a disheveled appearance, not the majestic aura that goes with someone 6'3" or taller.
baard said on 9/Jan/06
I know him he's 6'3
