Interesting proportions at play here.

His shoulders are clearly much higher than Rob's - 1.5 up to 2 inches like a 5'10.5 guy. But he has no neck, but a bigger head thus eyelevels are the same but the top of his head easily exceeds Rob's height by a good half inch maybe a tenth or two more.

Good listing.

Why is the average guess so high when he barely even looks much taller than Rob?
Editor Rob
Maybe if he lost a fraction of height by time I seen him, I would say 5ft 9 range peak is a possibility.

That's not a 3/4" difference. 1/2" at the most. TBH, he just looks 174 with you.

But there’s always a change he gets to 5’9 if he busted a gut

Peter came up just now as a Random Celeb. He doesn't look much taller than Rob. I think 5ft9 is a likelihood.

In my opinion he is 174cm.

Surprised if the difference is more than half inch as I think a lot of people at first glance would say you're the same height. Goes to show 1-2cm isn't a big difference.

Would you say the photo depicts how a 2cm height differential looks? as this resembles how I look with 180 cm people I think.
Editor Rob
Somewhere in 1/2 to 3/4 visually

So you had more footwear than him in the picture
6james94 said on 4/May/18
How tall would he be if you had like a little bit more footwear. I basically look like that next to someone that is 5'8 though he was wearing a little bit more footwear then me
Editor Rob
he might look closer to 5ft 8.5 if I had more footwear.

Rob, is he any relation to Colin?
Editor Rob
as far as I'm aware, no.

Burton always wore built up shoes though.

Richard Burton always wore built up shoes, both in movies and in real life.

Rob is prone to downgrading himself really. He is 5'8.9 in the morning, so could quite reasonably claim 5'8.5, but doesn't. Firth looks about half an inch taller than Rob, so 5'9 seems reasonable.

Editor Rob
both Glenn/alex in NY saw me on the stadiometer at 5ft 8.25.

Alex saw this at lunchtime, then 4 hours later at near 6pm the same height. But the stadiometer adds 2mm so I think a good 5ft 8 and 1/8th at lunchtime or night (there's no real difference with me) is my low measurement.

this guy has body proportions that make him appear taller. Look how much higher his shoulders are compared to Rob. If he had Rob's head and neck he'd probably be 5'10"
James said on 26/Feb/11
5'8.5 174cm today and possibly 5'9 (175cm) peak.

He's a fine actor in Spooks.
