Rebecca Schaeffer's Height
5ft 5 ½ (166.4 cm)
US Actress from 80's sitcom My Sister Sam and The End of Innocence. She said in Chicago Sun 1986 article: "I never considered myself a full-fledged model. I was always too short, always too fat. I'm 5-foot-7"
Actually, I don't think she was as tall as that, looked more 5ft 5.

Rebecca's hair just attracted me on to her page, and now that I've arrived, I notice that she hasn't had any comments since 2006! Wow! I was only a baby then, and if you believe that....!
Well, Rebecca reckons she is 5ft7, but she is written up as 5ft5.5, so I just HAD to check out some of the comments!
People who possess what is known as 'Big Hair' are always tempting to tackle when guessing heights! Have they given themselves a couple of bonus inches perhaps, hoping nobody notices? Well, that's what I thought might be the case here, but interestingly enough, I find some comments to back up that Rebecca really is that tall, and one comes from a fellow who actually met her! Now that simply has to reflect on my own guess, so I will opt for 5ft6.5, bouncy hair or not!

Ridiculous height for her. She was maybe a bit under 5'7, but nowhere near 5'5.5. Dawber was ever so slightly shorter than Williams, but he seemed like a legit 5'8. Rebecca Schaeffer was simply not this short. I would hope you would change it, as that its not like she can defend herself in this.

I don't know if my comment earlier today got through. But definitely 5'7" seems more believable. As seen in the photos I sent, she looks but a half " shorter than 5'7 1/2" Pam Dawber.
[Editor Rob: yes, she claimed 5ft 7, but you know, I wondered about that...a little shorter than dawber, but then dawber isn't 5ft 7.5 - in umpteen pics of her and mark harmon husband I'm not so sure...
back on mork and mindy with robin williams, I'd doubt that height aswell]

Actually I'm not so sure about that. In looking at a full length photo of her standing next to 5' 7 1/2" Pam Dawber she doesn't look but a hair shorter than Pam.
[Editor Rob: I know the pics you speak off, but I don't think Dawber is 5ft 7.5...she wasn't taller than Mork, was she? Been long time since I've seen that, hence I've not added dawber yet ;-) Although, beside husband mark harmon she doesn't look 171cm either...]
