High eye level doesn't help him look taller next to Tom Hardy. I guess 5'7 1/2 will be Riz height.

Looked a good 1.5 inches shorter than Tom Hardy in Venom. He's probably 5'7.5" at most.

He can sometimes look only 2-3 inches shorter than Mads Mikkelsen.

There's a chance he's nothing over 5'7.25"-5'7.5" but at times he can seem taller on-screen. I wonder how much he'd look taller than someone like Jon Stewart.

With a 5'10" (though, I kind of doubt he's a full 5'10") Cuba Gooding, Jr.

Riz Ahmed looks very close to how I did in HS--same height and very lean/thin build. So when I saw him in Rogue One I was relating to him quite well. In fact, I also look facially similar to him; I just have a rounder face and slightly different eyes. LOL. Regardless, I agree that his height is around 172cm--not average but not quite short either.

Looks much shorter than Diego Luna (5' 9) at the Rogue One premiere.

His character Naz in The Night Of is reported as 5'7" on his rap sheet but he does appear a bit taller than with the other actors. Probably just over 2 inches under Michael K. Williams and maybe 4.5 under John Turturro.

Think 5'7.5 is spot on. Brilliant upcoming actor. Amazing in The Night Of.

Rob, could you add "The night of" to his credits? I think he's probably well known for that tv series (a pretty good show, btw)...
In one episode they show his driving license and his height is down at "5-07"! I don't know if he's as low as 5'7 but he looks quite short on the show (shorter in fact than - *SPOILER ALERT* - almost every inmate in the prison scenes)!

@Rob, wasn't he listed as 5'7.5?
Editor Rob: I guessed him at 172cm, I think he has the benefit of a small head which can help him look taller.

Editor Rob: I think with bill paxton, he looks a weak 5ft 8.
