@David Zelisney:

Well yeah, lol. A person would have to be barely over 3 feet tall to be half the height of a very tall individual. 2 feet is still a gigantic difference.
David Zelisney said on 9/Aug/22
At that height Peter is still 'over half the height" of the Hound, the Mountain and Brienne of Stark.

He looks rather tall for a person with dwarfism. This listing is likely spot on.
Toby Barrett said on 21/Feb/22
@tall sam i would love to see that too
Tall Sam said on 20/Feb/22
That’s a cool shot. Be interesting to see Peter near modern day older Danny De Vito, only a few inches between them likely.

I always thought he was 4-5 on GoT, but with rob this listing looks legit.

Hey rob. Any chance he really is 4’6 like he claims?
Editor Rob
In this video Click Here Big Dawn was literally 4ft 4.

In person Peter Dinklage does not look taller than that.
6'3 Julian said on 20/Aug/20
6’2 Peter Dinklage making Rob look like a flat 7’6 guy.

I’m just joking obviously, I think over 4’4 but not 4’5

Honestly idk how to estimate his height I’ll just go with Rob at 132 cm
Tunman said on 13/May/20
Rob,why did he claim 4'6?It sounds funny that this guy adds 2".I mean guys like G claiming 5'8 try to enforce the idea they're average,guys like Pesci claiming 5'5 try to convince us they're not too small,but this guy?Do we have a different perception of 4'4 and 4'6?sounds funny.
Editor Rob
If you are around 4ft 4-5 it could always be a shoe height rounded up.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Nov/19
@ Nik - I can't think of a 3-letter insult! Can you enlighten me? 🧐

4ft4 for the deep-voiced Peter!

Peter celebrated his Birthday yesterday - and I believe it was the big 5-0! Many Happy Returns to Peter.

My Birthday guess for this man is 4ft4.

Littlelee5ft6 said on 3/May/19
Surprised big dawn is only 4ft 5 there as she doesn't look much below your shoulder there and from the top of the shoulders to the top of the head is usually around a foot
Editor Rob
Jenny is holding the camera around her face, so it would look a bit different than if a camera was low down.

If she holds a camera a bit below my chin Click Here - that's where 4ft 4 and 4ft 5 appear beside me.

With Peter, the camera is so low that I think it actually helped his height. My upper body is reduced in size because the photographer had the camera below peter's eyes.

In person I still would still say he looked shorter than his claim.
Littlelee5ft6 said on 29/Apr/19
He just doesn't look as short as other 4ft 4 guys next to you if say his 4ft 5 looks more accurate
Editor Rob
This is Big Dawn from a video in which she measured 4ft 5 Click Here.

I'd be surprised at 4ft 5 barefoot, just from seeing him up close.
Nik Ashton said on 20/Apr/19
He is an amazing man who we should all admire very much, Peter Dinklage really should inspire us to think that all heights are cool, because they are! We are all cool and every height is cool
Damon Blank said on 18/Apr/19
Absolute legend at only 4 ft 4.
rawdshaq said on 15/Feb/19
Haha dude you look like you're 7 feet tall next to him
Film Fan said on 7/Feb/19
It’s truly amazing how prolific Peter Dinklage’s career has been. He is a great actor who hasn’t been restricted to type casting. 4’ 4”-4’ 5” looks about right for him.

"A Lannister always pays his debts." Are you hyped for next season Rob?
Editor Rob
It will be interesting how they end it...
Michael, 5'10 said on 3/Dec/18
Wait, how can him and Deep Roy both be 4’4” if he looks taller in the picture than Roy does next to you? He looks much closer to your shoulder than Deep Roy in those pictures. I honestly thought he was 4’5” like he’s commonly listed as, but then again, it’s really hard to know the exact height of someone that short just like someone on the opposite side of the spectrum at 7 feet or taller like Ian Whyte or Shaq. So this time, I’ll take your word for it Rob.
Editor Rob
Photographer is sitting on a small chair right in front of Dinklage, but with Roy, the camera is a bit higher.

Fine gentleman, this cool guy should be a role model and a hero for many.
lee168cm said on 13/Jun/18
Would Peter and deep roy really be the same height Rob? Doesn't the top of peters head look closer to the top of your shoulders than deep roys does
Editor Rob
They are not much different...Roy actually has a more proportional look because of a smaller head than Peter's. Peter seems shorter than he might measure, I'm sure many would estimate him as not much over 4ft in person. When Big Rose hit 4ft 6 she looked noticeably taller than peter did...

The cameraman is sitting on a chair with Peter and the actual camera is more in front of Peter from what I remember.

Perfect listing 4'4"
Tall Sam said on 5/Feb/18
Didn't know he got a downgrade but it's hard to argue it, he can look pretty close to a foot under some fairly petite actresses.
Ian C. said on 17/Jan/18
I myself was once four foot four, but that was just a phase I was going through when I was eight years old, and I grew out of it. I was six foot two for a while when I was seventeen, but I grew out of that too. Ha ha ha. I'm not short. On the other hand, I am not a famous actor, so that kind of droops a little.

Excellent actor height is irrelevant like that little hungarian guy who always played a frenchman.
Not basing this off of got but he is likely the best actor on that show.

Big Rose looks tall for a 4'1 girl. How tall is now?
Editor Rob
actually I've not measured her for a while...though she looks closer to 5ft now than 4ft!
Sam said on 21/Jan/17
Just goes to show no matter how short/tall or far away from average a person is for example like say Dinklage, celebheights always keeps you on monitor. Honestly I'm quite amused he got a downgrade considering my comment a little while ago, but I think its the right call. Glad he got height busted. Most legit 4'5 guys would feel insulted. Big Rose could probably tell quite easily at one point being as she used to be near enough to Dinklage.
Editor Rob
he could be claiming height in shoes like many people do.
Andrea said on 8/Jan/17
Rob can spot "height liars", even when they're over a foot shorter than him! 😎😎😎
Editor Rob
Andrea, since I've measured kids from under 4ft up to 5ft, I would say Peter falls noticeably under the mid point.

I'd say when Big Rose was 4ft 6 she looked comfortably taller than how tall peter looked...

I'd be surprised if he was more than 1-2 inches taller than Rusty Goffe, who is near 4ft 2.
sfd said on 7/Jan/17
the last time i saw this page he was 4'5"
Editor Rob
I think he's calling height in shoes.

He's amazonian compared to Verne and Warwick!
Johnny said on 5/Jun/16
@Rob how is he like in person?
Editor Rob
he was cool and interacted and done poses with people who asked.

Also I am glad he asked crew to inform people to just stand and not crouch/kneel down (people still did this even though they were told!)

That kind of thing you might do with kids, but he's an adult and he wants treated like one.
Frank mcCooper said on 3/Jun/16
Rob what's your height
Editor Rob
it's 5ft 8 barefoot
matt said on 28/May/16
he's a weak 4' 2.5" tops, I'd bet my life on it. I had a friend who saw him at the airport.

Just kidding, though I was hoping to see some of those kind of comments for Dinklage.
Lord Beerus said on 22/May/16
I thought he was 5ft tall. Lol, I saw him in person one time and I'm usually 6ft tall. I figured I had 12 inches on him. If he really is 4ft5, then that means I'm 5ft5...;(
I'm three inches shorter than Rob..,
TallerthanU said on 18/May/16
Why did you put him at 4'5 even though the app thing says 4'4 even with the hat

he pretty much is about 4ft 4...

mrtguy said on 23/Dec/15
Rob, does he suffer from dwarfism?
Editor Rob

I was glad Peter told a crew member to say there's no need to bend down on one knee or anything silly like that for photos...maybe he thinks it's a bit like being treated like a child or that there's something wrong?

Peter in interviews admitted to have a chip on shoulder for many years due to his height condition but feels better about himself now, obviously can come across a pretty confident guy now.

To be fair if anyone deserves to have a chip on their shoulder about height, it should be people with dwarfism. It is a medical disorder after all. This is not a Tom Cruise/Justin Bieber overcompensation issue.

funny how Rob's smile seems in contrast with Dinklage defeated face.It's not everyday that an average man would feel 7'tall.
Great actor for sure.He managed to turn his handicap to his advantage which isn't easy as it's the first thing people notice generally.

I don't think height affects depth of voice. I am 5'7" and my buddy is 5'3.5" with James earl jones voices. In college they made us sing crash test dummy's song. Watching xmen now, 4'5"
Seem about right
Moke said on 22/Apr/15
He has an awesome voice. But that isn't depending on built anyway. He's pretty attractive too. He surely doesn't have problems with the ladies.
Sam said on 1/Feb/15
He's got a bigger voice for someone his height. Only really noticed though when I saw him in a scene with some 6'1-6'2 bloke and I swear Dinklage had a deeper voice.
Jewel said on 28/Dec/14
to a woman if he hot, loaded with tons of money thats all that matters. he is emitting enough testesterone. Afterall his voice is hot, trust me this guy is hot. He can buy q female the lifestyle :)
Really said on 6/Nov/14
I really get a kick out when I see some funny people call him handsome, hot, sexy even "quite" handsome lol I mean come on, be realistic, people.. Good actor yes, but handsome? No!
littlesue said on 24/Oct/14
Remember a petite woman with no genetic problems would have legs, arms and body in proportion to their height, with Dwarfism they have average body and head but shorter limbs so they have an overall shorter appearance
Moriarty said on 22/Oct/14
I'll accept the listed height but he doesn't give the impression that he is nearly as tall as very very petite women who aren't dwarf. 4-5 is in that vacinity. I wish there were pics of him next to very short women like Lil kim. His eyes should be near her mouth.
Clay said on 8/Sep/14
Would Warwick Davis look like a giant next to Verne Troyer?!? Lmao how long can this go on for.
Mick said on 13/Aug/14
@Sam: I don't think Alfie Allen or Kit Harrington even dip below 5'7", according to this site anyways.
Realists said on 29/Jul/14
Rob mean question but would Peter DInklage look like a giant in front of Warwick Davis.
Editor Rob
he would have about a head length on Warwick, so it might make him feel tall.
Jewel said on 21/Jul/14
he gives the impression of being in control. comfortable in his own skin, manly voice, a presence that is not defined by his height. abilities not linked to his height either. that's just enough.

Marc Anthony is not a big guy. but he has a big presence that makes him sooo hot.

Sam said on 21/Jul/14
I'd like to see him in genuine high quality leading man stuff after GOT runs its course, he's definitely proved he's got the chops and hopefully in roles that are not written just for little people.
Jewel said on 20/Jul/14
i dare even say hot. hotness is about presence and confidence. saw marc anthony on wendy williams talk show. i was reminded again why i love him. strong, suave, sophisticated and debonair. soooo manly! Its getting hot i better get out of here.

Sam said on 19/Jun/14
There's pretty much no way he's 4'9"-4'10" to GOT actors of 5'6"-5'11" range, he always looks well more than a foot shorter.
littlesue said on 18/Jun/14
Lol, are you joking, no way he is 4ft 10!! look at him next to Rob for a start!
TheLegitSixFooter said on 16/Jun/14
I honestly think that Peter downplays his height. I think he's AT LEAST 4'9", if not 4'10". He's a real confident guy so he just slouches a lot, making him look shorter.
Sam said on 17/Mar/14
Not meant to be offensive but he's the first little person I can think of who's really a brilliant leading actor who can carry movies and TV shows and he's got a rich, deep voice (used hilariously in Elf). That's not to say Billy Barty & Billy Curtis weren't fine character actors in their own right but they weren't on Dinklage's level in The Station Agent & Game of Thrones.
176,2Tunman said on 22/Feb/14
Rob,for a nanosecond I didn't believe my eyes,I thought you suddenly became a giant or stood on a chair.A small man visited my shop recently,the top of his head was roughly 17-18cm over the counter which is exactly 109cm tall he was like 124cm range barefeet.A very rare sight,would you say that nobody worldwide ends that short without height problems?
Sam said on 9/Jan/14
Wow, that's some height comparison there. It's very hard to believe that Whyte is not literally twice as tall as Dinklage.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
Hehe Rob any chance you could compile this photo with the Ian Whyte one just for kicks?
Editor Rob
that would be roughly the difference
Sam said on 30/Aug/13
I've never seen Peter Dinklage use a stool or anything like that. He's actually not that little a person as little people go...considered his fellow NJ native Danny De Vito is only 5 inches taller.

If you met Rob, I bet you'd be surprised to see how tall 5'8 actually is.
Blaze said on 14/Aug/13
at a difference like that, it would be impossible for me to pin point just be looking and I'm usually close or dead-on. just gotta take peter's word for it. he would reach my stomach lol. it's about as hard to guess his height as it is with someone like ian whyte. ian whyte with 5'8 ppl is me with 5'3 ppl, that shoulder.. and im 6'5... must me crazy being 7'1

Good job Rob! this guy is an extremely talented Lorne said, its amazing how he's managed to make his lack of height just incidental. Also Rob how noticeable is it that he's almost a foot taller than Warwick Davis?!
Editor Rob
it is noticeable to me, I'm sure many would think warwick was just 3ft in person and peter about 4ft...even Jenny thought about 4ft for him....
Yaspaa said on 6/Aug/13
8" might be slightly noticeable.
Lorne said on 6/Aug/13
For the record, he is a great actor. I just mention it because "little people" typically get typecast, which is understandable, but it has always prevented them from moving up. This man has broke the trend, and in my mind is not a "great little acto" but a great actor, who just happens to be 4ft5. Good for you, Peter. (and he now has TOP BILLING on Game of Thrones)
Larc 74in said on 6/Aug/13
Rob you're tall. :)
Lo sgozzatore said on 6/Aug/13

Is this a 38 cms difference? I guess it would be hard to say if he's 4'5 to you, right? I mean, this pic is quite useless

Could'nt agree more Renee, I find him sexy as hell!! even less diference for me being barely 4ft 11!! I could wear flats too!
Renee said on 10/May/13
Regardless of Dinklage's height, the man is gorgeous. If the man wasn't happily married, I'd date him. Of course, I'm 5'1" so the height difference would be barely noticeable...
Matthew said on 17/May/11
Great thing about Peter is he gets parts on merit... not just because he's a little guy. Sure, lots of parts required a 'dwarf', like Game of Thrones, but in Threshold no mention of his height is made... he's just an extremely talented actor going about his job. And THAT is exactly how it should be.
runt said on 6/Mar/11
Only 3" shorter than Gary Coleman and 2" taller than Emmanuel Lewis!
sam said on 25/Sep/06
this guy seems to have such a normal/nice personality I almost didn't notice his physical situation. But 4'5 isn't that bad. Dwarfs, I think, are frequently shorter than this.
