How tall is Pilou Asbaek

Pilou Asbaek's Height

Danish actor best known for roles in TV shows such as Borgen (as Kasper Juul), Game of Thrones (Euron Greyjoy) and films like A Hijacking, Lucy, Ghost in the Shell and R: Hit First, Hit Hardest. In this convention photo I had a 1/4 inch more sneaker than him.

He’s a strong 6ft

183 area

I've seen many 6 feet tall people in my life. I'm still not convience enough this guy's over 183 tall.
Slim 6'1" said on 5/Aug/20
Listing is spot on, no need for an upgrade.
Slim 6'1" said on 5/Aug/20
183-183.5 actually six foot dude
Dream said on 8/Dec/19

Eh? Alex is 6’0.125” guy and Rob did say Pilou still looked the same, and Pilot has less sneakers, meaning Pilou would slightly edge out 6’0.25”.

Really, this is probably the most legitimate listing I’ve seen for a strong 6’0”er.
Nik Ashton said on 23/Sep/19
@ Dream - I will offer him 6’0.125” as a compromise! Pukka! ♾!

I think some of the voters may have been fooled by his hair!
Dream said on 23/Sep/19

Honestly, I’m certain he’s easily this listing. He looks a solid 6’0”, but Rob has more footwear than him. He did say Pilou would be a bit taller than Big Alex.
Nik Ashton said on 14/Aug/19
I’m not convinced that he is 6’0.25”!
Dream said on 13/Aug/19
Rob, do you think you would need to meet this guy again, or would you say Pilou having less footwear is a good way of saying 'he's safely a strong six footer.'
Editor Rob
I don't think I need to meet pilou again, I would say I seen enough up close to give him a fraction over 6ft.

Sometimes these guests do one event, then you don't see them again - there's a big list of names over the year that just done one uk event and that was it.
Emil said on 12/Nov/18
Looks more like 6'0 in the photo even when you take his footwear disadvantage into account.
How tall did he look in person, Rob?
Editor Rob
He looked in six foot range, so likely barefoot would be a fraction over. How much of a fraction though...I think 1/4 or so.
Mel said on 11/Nov/18
Weak 6’0
Dream(5'9.5 said on 24/Oct/18
Rob, would you say Pilou Asbaek is taller than Tommy Flanagan?
Editor Rob
They both are arguably anywhere from 6ft and a fraction to 6ft 1/2 at most.
Zampo said on 24/Sep/18
6'0-6'0.25. I can see him near this mark in the afternoon so It's a believable listing, based on the photo.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 22/Jul/18
Rob, do you know what kind of footwear he was wearing when you met him?

Also, this guy would put Jensen Ackles' 6'1" claim to shame.
Editor Rob
Couldn't say brand, just how thick the sole was and it was certainly less than mine.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 30/Apr/18
5'11 is such a S#@! case for this guy. Asbaek is a solid 6'0"

Actually, I would dare make a case for 6'0 3/8ths."
Dream(5'9.5") said on 27/Apr/18
He’s likely the tallest six footer Rob has met.

Here, he looks taller than Jamie Campbell Bower, even when Pilou has ‘less’ sneakers than Rob does.
Jacob 6'5 1/4 said on 10/Apr/18
How is this guy even listed above 6'? It's clear in the photo with Rob he's at best 5'11. He's the shortest 6 footer on this site Rob has taken a photo with
Animus said on 30/Dec/17
He looks 184cm to me. Since he's listed at exactly 6'0, it's fair to split the difference, but he certainly looks 6'0½.
Slim 186 said on 9/Dec/17

He only has to be 183.8 to be eligible for an upgrade, which is extremely likely imo.
6footTom said on 21/Nov/17
I still think he generally looks at least a solid inch shorter than Nikolaj Coster Waldau, so I'd say that this is a good listing.
Slim 184 said on 9/Nov/17
Rock solid 6’0.5”/184 Cm 7 hours into his day. Needs an upgrade imho.
Slim 6' said on 30/Oct/17
Needs a 184 upgrade.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Oct/17
Definitely not 182cm though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Oct/17
He can look a solid 184cm
Slim 6' said on 12/Oct/17
@CelebHeights6'1.5", where do you think this man meausures up at?
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 10/Oct/17
I wouldn’t hesitate to give this guy 6’0.5”
Slim 6' said on 9/Oct/17
He's eligible for the 6'0.5" upgrade imo, I know the hoagie is closed, but still. He has 1 inch under 6'1.5" listed nikolaj.

And he looks too tall to be a flat 6 footer.
Andrea said on 2/Oct/17
In GoT he looks a lot closer to 6' than 6'1. The current listing is ok but I doubt he's any taller than this. I'm sure that if he had a chance of being as tall as 6'0.5, Rob would have listed him at that mark! More chance of being 6' flat than 6'0.5, IMO!
highlysuspect said on 29/Sep/17
Clearly shorter than nikolaj by about an inch. His shoulders are much narrower than nikolaj’s as well.
Slim said on 29/Sep/17
He's eligible for the 6'0.5"(184) upgrade.
Canson said on 20/Sep/17
@Mark: I doubt joes under 6'4.5 at least if he is it's 194 flat 6'4 3/8. So I agree!

@Slim: I agree with Mark he's at least a solid 6'0". And Robs listing may be possible all things considered
Slim said on 19/Sep/17
Rob, does any part of you think you've underlisted Pilou?

I think he's in 184 territory.
Editor Rob: I think he would measure very close to this estimate.
Slim said on 19/Sep/17
@canson, where do you pin Pilou at now?
Slim said on 18/Sep/17
Animus said on 7/Sep/17
He's a very solid six-footer with longish limbs and a decent frame. Not sure if he's a solid 184cm or a weak one--he tends to stand poorly--but he can certainly pull off a weak 6'1 impression. I'm 182½cm at night and I feel like this guy might edge me out by ½ an inch.
182.5=5'11 7/8ths, you're eligible to claim 6', welcome to the 6' club.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 15/Sep/17
@Canson At times, Joe Manganiello can look shorter than his current listing. I can't say he's a full 6'5", but he's not under 194 cm. However, he isn't exactly bang on 195 cm.
Canson said on 13/Sep/17
@Mark: no sweat! In other pics I see what you're saying. I tend to agree with Rob when he's met someone. Usually he's within maybe 1/2" at worst. He didnt give that appearance at first based on the back to back. Then again Joe M doesn't give that appearance with Rob and I agree with him downgrading Joe I'd say Joe looks 6'4.5 really at times but if that is his lowest he could've been a fraction taller when he met Rob if Rob was up earlier etc. meaning a 6'4.5 guy likely wakes up 6'5.25ish
Mark(5'9.5") said on 12/Sep/17
@Canson it's fine dude. Keep in mind, he has a footwear disadvantage and he still looks formidable. Compare him to Tom Cavanagh and Jamie Campbell Bower. Asbaek would still measure the taller of the three.

@Slim183 if anything, I'd say 6'0.5" would work too; I mean he could easily stretch to that mark!
Slim said on 10/Sep/17
Definitely taller than Channing Tatum.
Canson said on 10/Sep/17
@mark 5'9.5: you may be right. I went off how he appeared with rob but maybe he isn't standing his tallest
Slim said on 10/Sep/17
Also his surname is spelt like this:


Not Asbaek
Editor Rob: funnily, he himself used the English equivalent on his twitter!

If it's good enough for Pilou, it's fine for Celebheights, although I understand his Danish name.
Slim said on 10/Sep/17
@Rob, doesn't pilou look like Finn Jones? You should see less American actors and more Danish/Dutch actors tbh... they're more down to earth, I think so at least.

Lovely contribution, I agree with @Mark176 all the way, pilous definitely taller than Chris Brown, Ryan Gosling, and even peak tommy lee jones.

@canson, I wouldn't argue below 6ft.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 8/Sep/17
@Canson, sorry dude. As much as you think it's a morning height, I would be damned if he fell to just 6'0" flat let alone under it.

He'd likely measure taller than Jamie Camp Bower and maybe Big Alex.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 8/Sep/17
I hate to be blunt, but this guy would measure taller than Chris Brown. Sorry dudes.
Animus said on 7/Sep/17

Slim said on 6/Sep/17
I take that back, you wore 0.635 mms more shoe, give the man a 6'0.5" upgrade, he looks tall as hell.

What do you think guys?
Mark(5'9.5 said on 5/Sep/17
I don't think 6'0"1/2 is a stretch either though I would say Tom Wlaschiha would creep over 184 cm.
Slim said on 5/Sep/17
This just goes to show how formidable 6' And a fraction is as a height. I bet he gets guessed at 6'1" and 6'2". Looks tall as heck despite his disadvantageous shoe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Sep/17
He actually doesn't look a lot shorter than Nikolaj in photos. 6ft0½ looks arguable at times...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/17
Rob, is 6ft1 out of bed possible?
Editor Rob: yes, I'd say he might reach that first thing, then drop to still a solid 6ft range.
Slim183 said on 23/Aug/17
Spot on listing tbh.
Nik said on 19/Aug/17
@ 176cm guy

I'm already 41! I have got a few grey hairs!
Aza said on 16/Aug/17
Great listing ! Yes he is over 6ft.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 14/Aug/17
It makes perfect sense! Maybe not the full '184' cm at low, but I definitely see a steel 6'0"er here!
Mark(5'9.5 said on 13/Aug/17
Out of curiosity Rob, how would the average guess compare to what you saw in person?

Pilou Asbaek could edge out Jamie Campbell Bower. He kinda is similar to 'Karl Urban' and Jon Heder. Maybe I'm fooled by the posture and eye levels.
Editor Rob: I don't think he'd hit that tall, well of course not impossible, but I feel the odds are greater between 6ft - 6ft 0.5 than as tall as 6ft 0.5 if that makes sense.
Mark(5'9.5 said on 8/Aug/17
He really does look like a big six footer.

Rob, I just measured myself at this height 'in my tippy toes' barefoot (or 6'0.5" in tippy toes again for slightly busting a gut.)

I'm not one for tippy toes, but I was too curious to know my 'tippy toe' barefoot height.
Editor Rob: about 3 inches is quite typical on tip toes...the longer your foot, the better height gain from tip-toeing you can get.

This is why a women with a size 3-4 can't get as much as a women with a 8-9 heel, there's a fraction difference.
Canson said on 5/Aug/17
@Rob: I'm not seeing 4" there maybe 3-3.5 4 with hair maybe. I think that could be a morning height tho and he may be 5'11.5-.75 considering shoe advantage you had
Editor Rob: he really did seem a six footer, plus footwear difference I feel he would measure over it.
176cm guy said on 3/Aug/17
@Colonel Sanders He's turning 41 this year, i believe
Editor Rob: yes I'm 41 in September.
Euron said on 3/Aug/17
Here is a picture of him and Nikolaj side-by-side at the Sevilla v. Barcelona game. I see only an inch between them, my money is on Pilou being 6ft 0.5in.

dude said on 3/Aug/17
he doesnt look that much taller than rob IMO. rob did you grow to 5'10? lol
sumdude said on 3/Aug/17
184cm seems spot on. Doesn't really TOWER people but doesn't get towered either, you know? Very solid 6ft. By the way, his arms are very long. Probably has a 190-194 wingspan by the looks of it.
We'll probably get Game of Thrones cast photos with him in them very soon. It'll be fun to see how he measures with the rest of the giant cast.
Sam said on 3/Aug/17
As stated before, a believable 1.25 inch difference with Nickolaj Coster-Waldau in the most episode, although sometimes the camera favored Asbaek which could make him seem almost the same height.
Some Guy said on 3/Aug/17
This photo clearly shows that he is legit 6 feet tall. In Game of Thrones, he was an inch shorter than Coster-Waldau.
Colonel Sanders said on 2/Aug/17
you're bart is getting gray, how old are you btw? My guess would be that you are 46 now
Balrog said on 2/Aug/17
Accurate listing. This proofs that Waldau can't be under a strong 6'1''.
Ben said on 2/Aug/17
Whoa! Keep going with that beard Rob! You look dangerous!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Aug/17
Looks a strong 6ft
Csimpson 6ft said on 2/Aug/17
Are you going to dye your beard Rob? im really surprised that youre already getting some grey and white hairs, youre not even old enough to start greying!
Editor Rob: nah, I'll never dye hair, just keep everything natural until I'm grey...probably see it a lot more over next 10 years going more grey!
mrtguy said on 2/Aug/17
Rob, you are badass with that beard and should keep it growing
Editor Rob: I was surprised how much grey/white I have now coming through, I might take it to end of August as I have one small convention later that month
Andrea said on 2/Aug/17
Nice, Rob! Somewhere around 6' is believable for him. Do you think he'd edge Big Alex out, if measured?
And I agree with Tom that he looked comfortably shorter than Nikolaj in the last episode, at least a couple of cms! Nikolaj is a funny guy because on his own he doesn't look as tall as listed, at least to me, but next to those guys you have met like Pilou in fact he certainly doesn't look under 6'1 and easily around his 6'1.5 claim, which sounds pretty honest!
Editor Rob: he looked a 6ft guy I thought, quite similar to big alex, but then had a fraction less sneaker so I'd have said he could measure a fraction over six feet.
Csimpson 6ft said on 2/Aug/17
Looks a solid 184cm guy here i can even see 6ft 0.5 being possible, btw i like your beard Rob its looks good on you
Tom said on 2/Aug/17
Rob so you think 6 foot .25 is the lowest for him. Would you think 6 feet is possible?
Editor Rob: he has a better chance of measuring over six foot than bang on six foot I would say.
Tom said on 1/Aug/17
Looked at least a solid inch shorter than Nikolaj Coster Waldau in the latest episode of Game of Thrones. I'd say this listing is mostly fine, he could be around this height or 6ft flat.

PS: I should probably alter my username a bit given that there is another Tom in this comment section.
Tom said on 31/Jul/17
Hey rob how tall do you think he looked next to the actor that plays Jamie Lannister in season 7 episode 3. He looked about 6feet there or a little less. What do you think?
Editor Rob: I did manage to meet him...a guy who looks more handsome in person than on screen if that makes sense...and seemed very friendly. I think his current listing is what he might measure.
Animus said on 18/Jul/17
He's at least this, in my view. He could be a solid 184cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jul/17
Might be a bit over this, Rob?

I thought 6ft1ish on GOT
Editor Rob: yeah there's a chance, he can pull off over six foot.
Some Guy said on 9/Jul/17
@Ronnie He is still shorter than 6'3 or 6'4 Rupert Sanders as seen in some pictures. Also, his character Batou was a large and imposing character in the original anime adaptation so making Pilou appear taller and bulkier is understandable. He might have towered Scarlett but it is noteworthy that Scarlett is really short.
Ronnie said on 7/Jul/17
Just watched Ghost in the Shell. He looks huge in the movie. Id say solid 6'3 or almost 6'4
Animus said on 5/Jun/17
He might be more of a 184cm guy. He looks taller to me than a flat six feet.
Cam said on 15/Nov/16
Can confirm he is slightly taller than six feet. Worked with him and stood side by side. I'm 184cm and he is slightly taller than me. About 186 or 187 I would say.
Old Man Willow said on 1/Aug/16
Good listing! Entirely expected him to be at least 6ft 2 based on how tall he looked next to Alfie, Gemma, and the rest of the Ironborn!
Aza said on 21/Jul/16
Strong 6 ft
Some Guy said on 15/Jul/16
He looks like 190 cm in Game of Thrones since he towers over the rest of the Ironborns. But then again, they could just be small men.
TJE said on 13/Jul/16
Yea I would've guessed 6'0 from Game of Thrones
