How tall was Peter Mayhew

Peter Mayhew's Height

7ft ½ in (214.6 cm)

English actor, best remembered for playing Chewbacca in the Star Wars series of films. He once claimed "I'm 7'3", but who's counting?" and joked that "Incognito doesn't really apply once you pass the seven foot mark."
If I remember correctly Gwen[doline Christie] is 6'3"; which makes me only a foot taller than she is. :)
No, I am a bit shorter then I was at my tallest, but it's just a tad under 2 inches not 6.
As if seven feet of height was not convincing enough, Freeborn added lifts to raise Chewie to eight feet. - Making a Monster, 1980

These days I'm 7'2". I lost an inch somewhere!

I’m 7’2”. And yes, that’s part of what makes it important to me for people to accept that you are who you are. You know, I’m friends with Kenny Baker, who played R2. When we would hang out, it attracted a lot of funny glances. And my wife is 5’2”. Don’t ask how that works.
