How tall is Robert Powell

Robert Powell's Height

5ft 8 ½ (174 cm)

English actor, best known for Jesus of Nazareth, The Italian Job, Harlequin and Holby City.
At 51 I'm 5ft 9in and just over 12 stone. Ideally I'd like to be half a stone lighter. But the only time I had a weight problem was when I gave up smoking in 1984 and put on a stone.

I’ve been watching Robert in a 70s series called “Thriller”, and he stars in the very first episode. It is called “Lady Killer” and the first thing you notice about him is how lean he is and the woman he is leading up the garden path in some nasty way is much the same height, as is his other wife! You wonder how he has the strength to pick up and carry a woman of equal size, but he is young and fit back then!

Robert gets 5ft8.5.

I came across Robert's page earlier and saw 5ft8.5! I thought he looked much taller in the brilliant 'Jesus of Nazareth' and also in 'Tommy' and 'Asylum'. He has a tall look about him! It must be his lean figure!
Having said that, I know he did a collaboration with Jasper Carrot, and what little I saw was hilarious, as there was a fart in it almost immediately! I know he's also in Holby City, which I don't watch.
I have read some comments below and it looks as though Robert isn't very tall now, but from what I've seen and thoroughly enjoyed of this fine actor, I will have to go along with 5ft8.25 because there is no peak box and current height box, so I will compromise!

I made a comment about this guy's height and it has been removed. Clearly someone didn't like it. I'm 5ft 7in, I met him at a Lords Taverners lunch and he is a lot shorter than me. I'd say 5ft 5 is being extremely generous, 5ft is laughable.

because 5ft 5 is a joke for him.

He's much shorter than me,(5' 7"). Met him at Lord's cricket ground. I'd say he'd be barely 5'5" in thick socks!!!

I was going to say the same. I've worked with him. He seemed shorter than I am and I'm 5' 7.5". I could be wrong though!

I stood near Mr Powell at the theatre once and he is less than 5ft 8.5 - more like 5-6, 5-7 at most. Perhaps he wasn't wearing 'Munsters'...
