The Butterfly Room:

Ray Wise, as Mr Nick, is coming onto a very scary, black-haired Barbara Steele. She looks quite tall next to him, and I checked her out to find 168cm for her. Now I can believe that but since then, I’ve found she could be 5ft8, so 2” taller. Barbara was born in 1937, so she’ll be,or already is, 85 this year. At her age, a 2” loss is distinctly possible.

I’m giving Ray 5ft9.5 and as for Barbara Steele, dubbed ‘The Queen of All Screams Queens’, it might be an idea to give her a page, and a slot in the Horror Actors section! 🧛

@ Ace

You are of a solid average height!

I am only 5'9.25 so height is unimportant

Re: my last comment I think I've overestimated a couple of those heights, Everett McGill is more likely closer to 6'2½ and Chris Mulkey wore pretty big cowboy boots so I'd put him at 6'1. I'm sticking with a weak 5'11 for Ray in Twin Peaks though, no discernible footwear advantage and he looks barely an inch shorter than MacLachlan. He maybe closer to 5'10 nowadays but definitely 5'10½ at his peak.

Looked closer to 5'11 in Twin Peaks.

I'd say for the Twin Peaks cast:

Kyle MacLachlan - 6'
Michael Ontkean - 6'2
Dana Ashbrook - 6'
Richard Beymer - 6'2
James Marshall - 5'11
Everett McGill - 6'3½
Jack Nance - 5'7
Michael Horse - 5'11
Harry Goaz - 6'4
Eric DaRe - 6'1
Ray Wise - 5'10½
Russ Tamblyn - 5'9½
Don S. Davies - 5'9
Chris Mulkey - 6'2
Gary Hershberger - 5'11
David Patrick Kelley - 5'5
Miguel Ferrer - 6'

Yeah, he can give a taller impression especially in Twin Peaks, maybe due to good posture, but I could have sworn he was 5'10"+. I do admit that in Good Night & Good Luck that 5'11.5" David Strathairn looked right around 2 inches higher.

Rob,he seemed 5ft11 behind Kyle MacLachlan in Twin Peaks

He looks more 5ft9 flat in films, could 175cm be closer Rob? Especially at 64.
Editor Rob
yeah he could be that

He sure can look a full range of heights. Maybe it's his posture.

i think he 6'1 cuz in his new video yaya decosta had on like 2 or 2 1/2 inch heels and he was still way taller than her and she is 5'8
Famalama said on 27/Dec/05
I met him once, he was about 3 inches shorter than me and I'm 6'2.

Watching the Tyran Banks show today I noticed that Chingy was the same height as Tyra Banks in 3 - 4 inch heels. Maybe Chingy is 6-1. He had on trainers.

Compared to the 5'8ish" Ludacris in the 'Holidae Inn' video, Chingy is clearly 2-3 inches taller than him. So 5'10ish" is about right. I think about 5'11".

gets listed as 5'10.5" and does look so.But sometimes looks higher.May be cause he's thin.
