How tall is Roger Moore

I always played heroes because I'm six-foot-one-and-a-half, but I never really believed I was a hero, so I always played things tongue in cheek.

Sir Roger told me that when he first went to acting school he had a teacher who asked him, "How tall are you?". "Six foot one," he replied. "So now stand as though you are 6ft 1in," the teacher said. Roger did - and from that day started getting more work. - Paul McKenna

What was Derren like, Rob? Did you get to speak with him?
Editor Rob
Only saw him with other attendees, never got to speak to him.
Gerald S said on 7/Jun/23
Rob, would you concur with 5’11” peak for Derren Nesbitt?

I thought Moore had a good two inches on Nesbitt in The Saint and The Persuaders. Nesbitt also looked pretty much eye level with 5’11” Ferdy Mayne in Where Eagles Dare.
Editor Rob
I did see him briefly a few years ago, he was closer to my height, so about 2.5 inches lost by 83 would be possible for Derren.

Not sure what video you're watching but Lonsdale looks the same as Moore if not .25-.3 shorter

Lonsdale was a 6'0.5 or so guy. Listed at 6'0.75 here
Gerald S said on 17/May/23
Rob, would you agree with 5'11" peak for Ferdy Mayne?

In an episode of The Persuaders!, Mayne looked right between 6'1" Moore and 5'8.75" Curtis, height wise. Mayne also had close to three inches on Herbert Lom in Revenge of the Pink Panther, was relatively equal in height with 5'11" Derren Nesbitt in Where Eagles Dare, and generally fitted a 5'11" build in many other projects.
Editor Rob
Yeah I could see him near 5ft 11 peak.
Rory said on 16/May/23
No, Lonsdale wasn't taller than Moore for me in Moonraker. Even at 15.20 they look inseperable really, you could definitely argue both 6ft1 flat in that film. Whether Moore had lost a tad by then age 51 is debatable, I'm receptive to the idea Moore was always just a flat 6ft1 even in The Saint but having said that he also could look 186 a fair bit in the 60s so this 6ft1.25 listing isn't unreasonable either but I've always thought 6ft1 flat was more likely than his 6ft1.5 claim.
Gerald S said on 15/May/23
Rob, at 15:20 below, Michael Lonsdale has a good half inch on Moore! Please see!

I think maybe still a flat 6ft1 by A View To A Kill. Had 2in on Patrick MacNee (by then down to 5ft11 flat).
Rory said on 17/Apr/23
For me solid/strong 6ft1 in 1960s/early 70s and then weak 6ft1 by mid 1980s. 6ft0.5 was more what he looked in the 90s with people like Brosnan and Van Damme.I don't think he was someone who lost a load of height though,out of the norm,because even in his 80s he still looked a good six foot with Robbie Williams.

"Jenny's been watching episodes of The Saint over last year and I seen a few now"

Yes the Saint was a pretty good show. Most people my age haven't been heard of it!
But I got into some years back because I was interested in his work before Bond.

Not sure if you ever saw the Persuaders (only two seasons)
It's Moore and Tony Curtis.
They make an interesting pair.
Moore left show to do Bond in 1972-1973
Jenny may like that show when done with the Saint.

If you look at Moore next to Curtis (Curtis, who may have almost 1 inch advantage in his boots) it's about 3.5-4 inches if I recall

So Moore seems to be a guy who have a strong 6'1-6'2 impression in his earlier days then by end of Bond a 6'0.5 impression
Probably one of those guys who measured 6'1 flat by end of day when he was in his 20s-30s
By 1970s he probably dipped under 6'1 end of day
By 1985 he was struggling with 6'0.5
Then by 2000s he was barely 6'0

I suppose it's possible he lost 0.25 by 50?
Editor Rob
Yes, about 3 years ago we watched the Persuaders. I thought Tony could look 5ft 9 range with Moore.
avi said on 13/Apr/23
@QM6'1.5"QM said on 28/Jan/23

The back to back with Lee shows Moore is about 3 inches shorter perhaps 3.5 considering angle , footwear, ground level etc

Lee was 6'4.5 max
Maybe 6'4.25

So Moore at 6'1 makes sense

I think Rob should list him at 6'1

I do think by 1980s he was mid 6'0 area
As looked similar to Christopher Walken in a view to a kill

For some reason in the Saint he looks between 6'1-6'2
As I've said here before it could be the hair , camera angles and possibly a slight lift

It could be that Moore was a strong 6'0 and wore 1 inch lifts!

Never know!
Editor Rob
Jenny's been watching episodes of The Saint over last year and I seen a few now. I think solid 6ft 1 is likely. I remember one episode with Oliver Reed and it looked about 2 inches difference.
Gerald S said on 3/Mar/23
Rob, what height do you put Clifton James at?

He did seem about 2 inches under Moore in Live and Let Die and The Man With the Golden Gun.
Editor Rob
From memory, he seemed a guy 5ft 10-11 range if he stood properly.

It's more than just 7.5cm. It's like a solid 8-9cm. Plus, the photo(below) is a little tilted on the Moore side!

Click Here

Lee is 194cms and Moore is about 6'1"/ 185.4cms, it's looking way more accurate!

Roger Moore was no more 185cms range in the evening/ peak!
Textbook of 185 tall guy, lol :)
berta said on 27/Jan/23
about 7,5 cm shorter than christopher lee back to back. lee also had 1 cm less shoe. thats 8,5 cm. 186 vs 194,5 seems about right. lee could have been 195. a flat 6´1 is to low for moore. 186 is goo dlisting.
QM6'1.5"QM said on 17/Jan/23
6'1" peak height and looks barely 6'0"- 183.5 max on this photo/ w Linda Gray.

Incredible gentleman, R.I.P. 007!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/23
Yeah Connery, Caine, Glover and O’Toole looked taller than him
Rory said on 6/Jan/23
Yh he definitely would have measured 187, but that's more within 1 or 2 hrs out of bed I think. In fact I believe he probably measured 187 around breakfast time then rounded that up and claimed 6ft2 in the morning. He was always easily shorter than real 6ft2 men to have been near that mark himself though. I think the average guess here of 185.8 is on the money as an afternoon/evening measurement in his Saint days.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Jan/23
In Shout at the Devil I thought Lee Marvin looked a bit taller than Moore, rather than the other way around....
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Dec/22
@Rory: Yeah 184cm is too low peak but 187cm? Not in the afternoon but earlier in the day I’d say it was very likely and 188cm he hit first thing.

Textbook solid-to-strong 6ft1 guy.
Hong said on 22/Dec/22
Click Here Here's a scene they shared together,and as you said Rory the height difference seems less than the still I posted,Damon at 6ft2.5 would indeed make Moore more a solid 6ft1 guy.
Rory said on 21/Dec/22
Wouldn't say that was a 2 inch height difference Hong,more a solid 1.5. I've seen that episode of The Saint with those two and I'd say Damon did look about 1.5 inches taller but nothing more. With Roger I think the argument is whether he was 6ft1 or 6ft1.25 from all I've seen of him I can't really see him outside that range,I'd completely rule out figures like 184 or 187 for example.
Hong said on 20/Dec/22
Click Here Here's Roger with 6ft2.5 listed Stewart Damon,Moore is looking a couple of inches shorter.
Andy Hodgson said on 17/Dec/22
I'm watching Roger Moore starring alongside Lee Marvin in a film right now. They are the same height. Lee Marvin is believed to have been 6'1" so that would suggest that Roger was also 6'1".
seb armstrong said on 8/Oct/22
Am going with 6 ft 2 ( in shoes) seen quite a few interviews where Rog referenced 6ft2. Mooreover ( see what I did there!?) there is a 96 interview with Clive Anderson. where again in his late 60s he said-''I;m 6 ft2''
ZDA said on 30/Sep/22
6 ft 1 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Sep/22
From post-A View To A Kill up to when that photo with Brosnan was taken, I’d say Moore was still 184-185cm range.

Connery, Moore, Brosnan, Dalton and Lazenby all could appear average opposite real big men when playing Bond.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/22
Had to have woken up at 6ft2
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Sep/22
I reckon Roger was near to 6ft2 when he got up. He doesn’t look outstandingly tall, but when you have someone as huge as Kiel amongst the cast, it does set the standard rather high!

Rory said on 8/Sep/22
He looks 183 there with Linda Gray but that's not a fair depiction of his height,he's caught looking short there and obviously at 68 was past his peak. The year before pictured with Brosnan he looked a good 184,but he'd definitely lost 1-2cms by mid 90s.

Click Here
QM6'1.5"QM said on 2/Sep/22
Roger Moore looks barely 6'0.25-6'0.5" with Linda Gray.
Linda Gray is probably no more than 5'10" with heels on and Moore had plus-minus 2.5inches with these black boots ... I don't know, maybe strong 6'0" tall back then at 1995!

Hard to ignore this fact, if there is 3inches diff ...Moore was closer to 6" than 6'1"!

What do you think, Rob ?! :)
Editor Rob
He was struggling with 6ft 1 indeed!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Aug/22
He admitted to 6ft2 in the morning and another time went with 6ft1½. I'm of the opinion he struck both of those. Listing doesn't need to be touched.

But yes Rory is right. By A View To A Kill was probably more in the weak 6ft1 range. Live & Let Die/Man With Golden Gun days, Roger was a strong 6ft1er. Likewise in The Saint and The Persuaders. He was always just slightly beaten out by real 6ft2 men going way back
Voorhees Myers said on 27/Jul/22
6-1 peak. As he stated at first. Adding a bit is mandatory Hollywood.
Rory said on 19/Jul/22
6ft1 flat is possible but I'd leave out the "at most" part. I'm not seeing any possibility of a 30 Yr old Moore at say just 6ft0.5,he was always noticeably taller than six foot range men. I think in the Saint/Persuaders up to id agree Spy who loved me,that 6ft1-1.25 zone is where he was and by the end of his stint as Bond 6ft0.75.

I've said before,average guess here of 185.8 could be bang on for young Moore.
avi said on 14/Jul/22
@Sinclair said on 3/Jun/22
"6’1.25” is fine but there were many times in the later Saint episodes where Roger looked no more than a flat 6’1”. In The Persuaders!"

It could be footwear I believe he and Curtis sometimes wore some shoes with a bigger heel

I'm starting to think Moore was a flat 6'1 at most

And then more 6'0.5 second half of his life slowly dipped to 5'11 zone
QM6'1.5"QM said on 28/Jun/22
The last movie when Moore looked legit 6'1" was «The Spy Who Loved Me» 1977. I think 185cms range in the evening.
Between the «Octopussy» and «A View To A Kill» he looked like "weak" 6'1/ 184cms range compared to many actors: Christopher Walken, Michael Lonsdale, Patrick McNee, Carol Bouquet and other ...
And even early in the «The Man with the Golden Gun» he looked good 8.5-9cms shorter than Christopher Lee.

Peak was honest 6'1".
Moore in his last Bond movies didn't look over 6'1.
My favourite Bond actor too!
Rory said on 23/Jun/22
I think 6ft0.25 or 0.5 looks about right for Roger in the 90s but I don't think he'd lost an inch by then, more like half to three quarter I'd have thought.
Vibram said on 13/Jun/22
Roger in 1994 being edged by peak Brosnan on the set of Goldeneye: Click Here

In that photo Roger was 67, Pierce 41. Pierce was 186cm / 6'1¼ peak in 1994, Roger looks 183.5cm or 184cm next him which is 6'0½. I think by the nineties Roger had lost a bit...around 2.3cm or nearly an inch off his peak. Solid 6'1¼ (186cm) for Roger in his prime/peak in the 1960's though and probably holding that height until the middle 1980's.
Sinclair said on 3/Jun/22
6’1.25” is fine but there were many times in the later Saint episodes where Roger looked no more than a flat 6’1”. In The Persuaders! Moore looked comfortably over 6’1” but by the Bond films, he was barely 6’1”.
jamesbythesea said on 27/May/22
Saw Roger at Grand Hotel in Stockholm around 2010. He came out of the lift past me. I'd estimate he was a solid 6ft 2ins.
avi said on 24/May/22
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/22

Moore looked over 6'1 in the Saint. Could give 6'2 impression. Maybe it's the hair! Lol

I haven't seen Remington Steele but I feel Brosnan was similar to Moore peak.
Both 6'1 guys.
Both seemed to lose similar amount of height in 60s.
Moore seemed to be sub 6'1 by View to a kill he was 57-58
Then by 80 was 5'11.5 I think
Brosnan is flirting with 6'0.3 now so already lost maybe .8 of an inch it appears
QM6'1.5"QM said on 22/May/22
Tech noir said on 15/May/22

Yes of course.
185-185.5cms "Live and let die",
184.5cms "A view to a kill".
Tech noir said on 15/May/22
Don’t think he was over 6-1. Looked under it constantly
Ian C. said on 9/May/22
The story (and I believe it) is that Moore was naturally prone to being chubby, and took diet pills to maintain his leading man figure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/May/22
186-186.5cm peak is fair. Consistently edged by 6ft2 men (Connery, Caine, Gothard, Bowles and Glover)
Rory said on 16/Apr/22
Doubtful he ever fell under the 6ft1 mark in the 1960s.
Rapha said on 11/Apr/22
Hi Rob

What would have been his lowest height in the evening ? 185 ?
Editor Rob
At peak, yes 185 might be lowest in evening.
Sinclair said on 27/Feb/22
Rob, how tall would you say Thorley Walters was at peak? Six feet?

Walters looked a six footer compared to Moore in The Man Who Haunted Himself and an episode of The Persuaders! (To the Death, Baby), there was approximately a one inch height difference. Walters also seemed very even in height with 6 footer Douglas Wilmer in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ Smarter Brother.
Editor Rob
Not sure on full six foot
Sinclair said on 25/Feb/22
Rob, how tall would you say Lionel Murton was at peak? 5’11.5”?

In an episode of The Persuaders! (Angie...Angie), Moore had roughly 1.5 inches on Murton. It’s entirely plausible that Moore peaked at only a flat 6’1” but I’d still lean more towards 6’1.25”. In any case a weak 6 footer is what Murton came across to me as.
Editor Rob
That's one actor I recognise the face, but never really remember anything about the height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/22
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Remington Steele era Brosnan would edge Saint era Moore by a hair. Roger I think at 186cm flat and Pierce 186.5-187cm seems feasible while Dalton I think was a weak 188cm, edged both of them
Mincer said on 26/Dec/21
Rob, who do you think would of been taller Roger or Pierce Brosnan?
Editor Rob
For a while I've thought that if measured they would be close at peak, but maybe Pierce ultimately has the better chance of a tough more.
T.M. said on 22/Nov/21
He looks about 6'0 3/4"in most photos. Looks roughly the same height as Pierce Brosnan (6'0 3/4") in these photos as a man around 70 in the mid - late 90s. Peak 6'1 1/4"
Original said on 20/Nov/21
Peak 6'1".
berta said on 17/Nov/21
manimum 185 and at most 186,5- probably measured 2 mm under 186 at peak.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Nov/21
It's the tongue in cheek humour and chauvinism I miss. Roger Moore's films had some of the best, most glamorous film locations in the whole Bond series, I think For Your Eyes Only was one of my favourites with that. Octopussy and Golden Gun too. I think all of the Bonds have been good, each with their own qualities. I would say Dalton was the most believable, he had a certain coldness about him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/21
The Brosnan era brought a bit of that back, viper....
viper said on 24/Oct/21
What I miss from the Moore era are the over the top villains.

Bond movies haven't had them in ages.
Enrique Jorge said on 22/Oct/21
For those of us who grew up in the 70s, he was our James Bond. He played the role with a good natured humility. He was an all around decent guy. The world could use more Roger Moores who do not take themselves so seriously that they must always put down others to make themselves feel relevant. For me, he will always be 7 feet tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Oct/21
I think Remington Brosnan would possibly edge Saint Moore
recapa said on 3/Oct/21
185.5-186 peak ,he was probably edged by peak brosnan.

Rory said on 20/Sep/21

Of course many people wear lifts, but the vast majority dont which is why id always assume first that a person/actor doesn't wear lifts because statistically speaking its unlikely they will.

6ft1 1/8th in 1960s,6ft0.75 in 80s,6ft0. 5 in 90s.
avi said on 16/Sep/21
@Rory said on 15/Sep/21

This is an untrue statement and conjecture as well.

Many actors wear lifts
Many people are conscientious of height

Moore looked taller in the Saint in the 1960s I've seen almost every episode and every Bond plus other films he was in

I doubt he lost height from 1965 to 1975

With the lifts piece aside,the 6'1 height is fine

By the 80s he seemed to be sub 6'1
Rory said on 15/Sep/21
Its pointless suggesting he might have worn lifts, there's no evidence at all to point to that and he never wore suspicious looking footwear. The vast majority of people dont wear lifts. Rogers height didnt fluctuate either, to me he nearly always looked in that solid to strong 6ft1 zone in his prime. Its people like Richard Harris where the lifts question becomes more relevant, where in one film he looks 6ft0.5 and then in the next film 6ft2 and then 6ft1 etc etc.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/21
6ft1 flat or possibly a nibble under by A View To A Kill
avi said on 8/Sep/21
@Rory said on 5/Sep/21
Yh with O'Toole id have Peter at 6ft2 and Roger at 6ft0.75 based on that picture, looks a 1.5 inch difference at most to me.

Yes that pic he is maybe 1.3 inches shorter looks close to 1.5

And yeah in the Saint he looks 6'1.5 even 6'2 at times (maybe the hair ?)

I think he was 6'1 and change then by mid 50s he was barely 6'1

I don't think he would have worn lifts in the Saint and Persuaders but never know...
Rory said on 5/Sep/21
Yh with O'Toole id have Peter at 6ft2 and Roger at 6ft0.75 based on that picture, looks a 1.5 inch difference at most to me. That was 1982 though, Roger was about 55 there and I always had a feeling Roger looked a fraction shorter by the 80s than he had done in the 60s. Never looked anything less than 6ft1 in The Saint, but could sometimes appear shy of it in the 80s and even late 70s. I think 185.5/186 in The Saint/Persuaders and 185 flat by View to a Kill. I think in more recent times I remember seeing him with Robbie Williams and he still looked 5ft11+ 10 yrs back.
avi said on 4/Sep/21
Think he was a strong 6'1
Then 6'0.75 at most by the last Bond film a view to a kill
Eventually he was barely 6'0 before his death
And most will lose 1 inch to 1.5 by late 80s
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Sep/21
O’Toole honestly looks like a 6ft3 guy if Moore’s height is correct.

In reality the difference between them probably wasn’t that much but I can see a case for Peter being a more solid 6ft2 (like 188-188.5cm) than a weak one with Roger at 186cm
Rory said on 18/Aug/21
I dont see young Roger being as tall as 6ft1.5, as ive said before, a suave good postured actor like Moore if he really was 6ft1.5 would have pulled off a 6ft2 look with ease. He never really did. At times he could look 6ft1.5 for sure, but then several times he could look 6ft1 max too so.. I think probably 6ft1 flat is the lowest you could argue and in my personal opinion 6ft1 3/8ths is the most you could argue. Very likely he fell somewhere within that range.
talker said on 16/Aug/21
Moore in the early sixties when he played The Saint was 1.87m which is about 6'1.5".He would round up sometimes and say 6'2".Then he may have lost 1cm in later years in his late fifties or so.He looked about that height all through the Saint next to many actors ,many of them listed at 6'2" looked about the same height with Moore,actor Anthony Dawson one of them.
Rory said on 31/Jul/21
Of course he could lose an inch, he could even lose more, or perhaps less.. There's no cast iron rule. Id agree with what Rampage said though, 6ft2 straight out of bed and then 6ft1-1.25 at night in the 60s/early 70s.

I suspect, though cant be sure, when posters on this site say theyve lost half inch say from morning to night theyve not really measured their low. Wake up at 7am say and measure yourself,then do a physically intensive job on your feet for 10 hrs straight and then see if youve only dropped half an inch. I suspect for many it will be 0.75-1 inch range.
Canson said on 31/Jul/21
@Rob: that’s what I was alluding to. I see anywhere from 6’1-6’1.5 afternoon height and 6’1.75-6’2.25 out of bed (3/4” loss from morning to evening). But he isn’t at that size where you lose the inch
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/21
6ft2 first thing, 6ft1-1¼ at his low
Rory said on 30/Jul/21
Yh 6ft2 out of bed is probable for a young Roger. Doubtful hed measure it an hr out of bed though because that would make him a decent 6ft1.5 guy which i always felt was just a tad too much. More a solid/strong 6ft1 than a guy edging towards 6ft2.

Solid 6ft2 actor Nicholas Smith had Moore by an inch in The Saint.
Canson said on 30/Jul/21
Was he the full 6’2 out of bed? Or was it after an hour? Depends on the pic you see where he can look anything 6’1 to 6’1.5
Editor Rob
I'd say he had a good chance in his youth of reaching 6ft 2 out of bed
David Tang said on 23/Jul/21
Rory said on 19/Jul/21
I think 186 is the best fit for Roger, he was always easily taller than six foot range men in the 60s and 70s. I wouldn't say it was impossible he was just a good postured flat 6ft1, but I think 6ft1.25 is still reasonable. Roger measuring around his claim of 6ft1.5 at say 11am is very believable.
Dr Decker said on 18/Jul/21
6-1 peak. Never really looked over that imo.
David Tang said on 3/Jul/21
tall guy. i think the 6'1.75 was a morning height out of bed. rob why don't you count that. he isn't lying when he says his height is 6'1.75 if he reaches it out of bed.
MaskDeMasque said on 25/May/21
I think he's the best bond too. Love the inuendos and comic cheesiness of his films. I think Daniel is good but too serious, prefer old style bond.
Sinclair said on 17/May/21
Rob, would you agree that Ted Wass was 6’0.25” at peak?

In Curse of The Pink Panther, I make Moore approximately an inch taller than Wass.
Editor Rob
I doubt he was less than 6ft range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/May/21
Harris was likely a bit over 6ft....was never convinced that Rob downgrading him to 6ft flat was the right move

Click Here Here's Roger looking similar height to 6ft listed Richard Harris.

Watched the man with the golden gun last night. Roger looks a solid 6'1. 6'1.25.
Rory said on 6/Apr/21
Wasnt really any clear cut opportunities to compare Moore and Walken in View to a Kill, although you could tell they looked fairly close. By then id say Moore 185cm(185.5/186cm peak)Walken 183.5cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Mar/21
Haven't seen A View To A Kill in years...trying to remember how much was between Roger and Chris Walken. More a flat 6ft1 by then perhaps. Live and Let Die/Man with the Golden Gun days could hold his own next to the really big guys like Christopher Lee and Yaphett Kotto (who we just lost RIP), even pass for 6ft2
Hong said on 16/Mar/21
He looked like a solid 6ft1 guy in his youth,a bit shorter than Connery and Caine,who both looked like solid 6ft2 guys.
Rory said on 15/Mar/21
In that episode of The Saint I think Sutherland had somewhere in 2-2.5 inches on Moore so 6ft1.25 and 6ft3.5 looked correct.

I think the average guess here of 185.8 is perfect for Roger. Its the sort of height id fully expect him to measure in the 1960s at about 3pm.

He definitley didn't look 6'2, let alone 6'1 1/2 next to christopher lee in the man with the golden gun. More like a weak 6'1, but maybe the ground was uneven??
jon mortimer said on 17/Nov/20
He was exactly what he said at his peak - 6'ft 2 out of bed and 6ft 1 & 1/2 after lunch. I mean that's it - really. I saw him up very close on his way to signing his autobiography after one of his 'Evening With...' when he was already in his early - mid 80's and the guy was still a good 6ft in normal shoes. If you see him in that terrible film Bullseye with Michael Caine who claims and again definately was if not bang on 6' 2" very very close to it where they stand back to back for the cover & are right next to one another in many scenes they are pretty much the same height - maybe Caine has a fraction of an inch. Its interesting seeing so many people second guessing - its a real obsession. He was what he said. I think as a general rule men 6ft or over simply don't exaggerate their height as much as shorter men and I think in that generation they hardly did at all.

Roger Moore was born 93 years ago today. He took over from my favourite Bond, Sean Connery.

Roger lived to 89.

Too difficult to say who would have been taller out of peak Brosnan and peak Moore. Brosnan obviously edged out a 1990s Roger in his late sixties, but to separate Saint era Roger and Remington Steele era Brosnan you would have needed to measure them. I'm sure they'd appear extremely close in person.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/20
Sinclair, I think Pierce might have had the edge
Sinclair said on 8/Aug/20
I’d give Roger more than just a flat 6’1” at peak, the 6’1.25” listing seems perfect to me. He did look very tall during the run of The Saint and The Persuaders!. He looked about the same height as Michael Lonsdale in Moonraker and was probably a flat 6’1” or even less by the time of A View to a Kill. Rob, who do you think was taller at peak, Roger Moore or Pierce Brosnan? I would say Roger Moore was a hair taller than Brosnan when comparing their peak heights, but Brosnan eventually became the taller man, perhaps around the late 1970s or early 1980s.

Rory said on 8/Jul/20

Absolutely "good looking comment" bro 100%!
Rory said on 8/Jul/20
There were occasions though where he did look no more than 6ft1. I'm thinking with guys like Steven Berkoff,James Cosmo and Joss Ackland. Did look more 185 than 186 or 187 with those guys and that was during his peak years. Admittedly though there are several incidents of him looking a good 186 too. I think 6ft1.25 is perfect for Moore but if I had to say what was more likely 6ft1 or 6ft1.5 for him I'd opt for 6ft1 flat, he was too often comfortably edged out by genuine 6ft2ers to have been 6ft1.5 Imo. The 6ft2 out of bed and 6ft1 at night e,g strong 6ft1 has always sounded right for him.

I could see him measuring 6ft1.5 at say 10am and then rounding to 6ft2 quite often.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jul/20
Yeah I think a 6ft1 flat is a disservice for Moore and Brosnan peak. Anywhere 186-187cm range in the Saint/Persuader/early Bond years is possible. An easy round up to 6ft2 from there
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jun/20
Rob, is 6ft1½ still a possibility?
Editor Rob
That was always the most I'd give him, I'm not sure I would go with a flat 6ft 1 for him in his 20's and 30's, hence between 6ft 1 and 1.5 was a figure to settle on.
Jam Cherry said on 18/Jun/20
Roger Moore was 186 cm atleast he was little over 6’1”
movieguy12 said on 15/May/20
Rory, I agree that most people aren't as Obsessed With Height as regular visitors to this site. Although at the end of the day I consider this site to be harmless fun no more, no less.

However I do think that in films or TV shows the image of the leading man is protected. They don't use actors in supporting parts who are better looking than the star or make the leading man look like a midget. The same way a band or their manager doesn't choose a support act that are better than they are.
Rory said on 11/May/20
I'd say Sutherland looked 2.5 inches taller than him at most in that episode, I feel the difference between Mike Tyson and Rob is similar to how Sutherland looked with Moore, I think 2.25 range. So 6ft3.5 and 6ft1.25 looks very close. I just don't buy arguments about people especially casting actors because of their height with them needing to be shorter or w,e. Most people aren't Obsessed With Height and it doesn't enter their head as much as it would a visitor to this site. Plus as I say a 186cm guy in the 1960s would look tall regardless.
movieguy12 said on 11/May/20
To add to my earlier comments about Roger Moore in the Saint. I've just watched the episode Escape Route in which Donald Sutherland appears. Sutherland is about 2 or 3 inches taller I'd say which would put Moore between 6'1'' and 6'2'' if Sutherland is 6'4'' or thereabouts. My guess is that Moore was at the lower end of this range roughly in line with the official celebheights estimate. I think that given that Moore was the leading man they did perhaps avoid casting him alongside tall actors on too many occasions. The episode with Sutherland was the exception I guess there was one other actor also taller than Moore in this show.
Rory said on 10/May/20

I disagree with that, there were actually quite a lot of actors over six foot in The Saint. A solid/strong 6ft1 man in the 1960s would be the equivalent of like a 6ft3 guy today too so he would look pretty tall on and off screen.
movieguy12 said on 8/May/20
Watching the colour episodes of the Saint at the moment. Roger Moore is closing in on 40 at this point but looks surprisingly youthful. He also looks a genuinely big man but given that he was the star of the show maybe they avoided casting him alongside too many tall actors.
QM6'1QM said on 8/Apr/20
TheoJ said on 5/Apr/20

I think he looks easily 5cms taller than Moore, i mean take a look on their shoulders or size difference of heads. Generally Moore did his posture better on this photo.
But yeah i don't see 6-7 cm if 007 Bond still be solid 186 cm there.
So 191 cm is a high possible for Christopher.
movieguy12 said on 4/Apr/20
In the last of his published books Moore mentions finding the metric system confusing in some respects having grown up with imperial measures. He mentions when people ask him his height he says he thinks he is 1.83 m and gives his weight as 12.5 stone. I'm not sure how accurate these figures are. 1.83 m equates to 6ft I think this may be accurate for an older Roger Moore he was probably taller in his youth.
movieyguy12 said on 29/Mar/20
I don't think Roger wore lifts as he was a tall guy anyway. At least 6ft probably a bit more if you forgive the pun. Roger does mention on the DVD commentary of the Wild Geese of how Richard Harris appeared on set one day taller than he was having previously appeared shorter. He quickly worked out that Harris was wearing boots with lifts. So yeah it does happen.
I watched Live and Let Die yesterday for the first time in a while and was surprised how youthful Moore looked. I know there are some who say that Roger at 46 yrs of age was too old to be cast as Bond but in the early films at least he did still look young enough for the role of the superspy. The later films although entertaining probably in these Moore did look a little past it for part.

Rory said on 17/Dec/19
Certainly not under 6ft1 in the 1960s. Looked what I'd call a solid 6ft1 guy back then. Never looked under it and could often seem a fraction taller, occasionally pulling off 6ft1.5. Generally though roughly 6ft1.25 seems bang on really, I'd struggle to see him under 6ft1 but also struggle to envisage him being a legit 6ft1.5 so somewhere in between looks nailed on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/19

@Rory “innocent until proven guilty policy”. The only word I agree on in that sentence is “policy”.
Importer said on 26/Jul/19
HAHAHAHA I like that story told by Paul McKenna. Roger Moore simply improved his posture and got the credibility he deserved! rather inspirational if you ask me.
Rory said on 17/Jul/19
I think when it comes to lifts and anything really you have to have an innocent until proven guilty policy and I've never seen a shred of evidence to say he was a lift wearer as his height always looked consistent to me. It's not like in one episode he looked 6ft2 and in the next 6ft flat which would arouse suspicions, no he always looked 6ft0.75 lowest up to 6ft1.5 maximum when stood impeccably. Somewhere Inbetween that range the truth lies I think. My guess is Roger woke up out of bed at 6ft2 and maybe shrunk an inch to 6ft1 flat after a long day on set. I think Connery would have had close to but no more than an inch on Moore.
Editor Rob
It would seem unlikely a man like Roger would wear them.
Importer said on 16/Jul/19
@avi I disagree, Connery was a solid 6'2
avi said on 12/Jul/19
@Rory said on 15/Jun/19

Yes I always thought he looked a good 6'1.

I also noticed he looked taller in the Saint.
His hair is different (it's pushed back ) and his posture is very solid. Plus cameras can easily make 5'10 actors look 6'0 if done right.

Looking next to a 6'4 -6'4.5 guy like Christopher Lee he looked 3-3.5 inches shorter.

I guess my thought was he may have worn a small lift. Not saying he did but you never you know. In his memoir he mentioned he was told to "walk like he's 6'1 not 5'10" in his early acting days maybe this made him more cognizant of his height.

I'm perfectly fine with 6'1 though. Over that like 6'1.5 is pushing it.

Next to Connery later on he looked closer to 6'0 flat considering Connery was never a solid 6'2.
Rory said on 15/Jun/19
I couldn't really agree he looked 6ft0.5, for example in the last saint episodes I watched he looked not much more than 2 inches shorter than Donald Sutherland (6ft3.5) and in another one looked a good 2 inches taller than Oliver Reed (5ft11). As I say he was a guy who when compared to everyone always looked in the sturdy 6ft1 zone in the 60s and 70s so for me a little over 6ft1 is more likely than say 6ft0.5. But generally 6ft1 or 1.25 he had to have been there or there abouts.
avi said on 12/Jun/19
@Rory said on 11/Jun/19

Yes he appeared 6'1 throughout most of his career.

In the Saint he can look over it.

I think it's possible Moore was 6'0.5 because with his slim , proportioned body he can be one of those who can look an inch taller on screen.

But 6'1 is a fair listing.
Rory said on 11/Jun/19
I've watched most of Moores stuff from the 60s and 70s and he always looked a good 6ft1. 6ft1 flat would be the least I'd argue and 6ft1.5 would be the most I'd argue. I think personally he was either 6ft1 1/8th or the current 6ft1.25 but he wasn't under 6ft1 that's for sure I think the average guess here of 185.8 is probably very close for an evening measurement for Roger he was always clearly taller than 6fters and when standing with good posture could look not far off 6ft2 guys. I actually think he would have measured 6ft2 out of bed.
Visitor said on 2/Jun/19
@avi Yes, "looked on screen". Was not necessarily in reality. 6'0.75 wouldn't be absurd, but neither would 6'0". What the "looks 6 ft on screen" basically means "is actually 5'10" ". Across the board, on this site absolutely everyone who is in a picture with Rob turns out to be way shorter than people tend to think.

I don't really like arguing about this as I really like Moore as Bond, he just simply was not as tall as someone else. He was nowhere near 6 ft 2 except maybe in shoes.
avi said on 20/May/19
I think next to Lee Moore looked around 3 to 3.5 inches shorter.
Lee wasn't 6'5 but was a strong 6'4. This would make Roger Moore 6'1. I'm not against 6'0.5 to 6'0.75 but these 6'0 flat calls are a bit absurd.
Timothy Dalton did look a good inch taller. To me Moore looked 6'1 almost all the time on screen. Did he wear lifts? I don't think so but you never know!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/19
Moore still looked around 6ft1 in A View To A Kill if Walken was a fraction over 6ft. In Live And Let Die/Man With The Golden Gun could look 6ft1½ to 6ft2.
Rory said on 16/Mar/19
Walken wasn't in Live and let die but in View to a kill I'd say Moore had half inch on Walken who I think was a 6ft0 1/8th guy. So you're looking at a 57 year old Moore at around 6ft0.75 imo, about 1cm down from his peak which I believe was 6ft1.25.

Looked at Sherlock Holmes in New York last night. An entertaining romp. Moore was a pretty big guy. He's taller than co-star Patrick Macnee by a couple of inches and Mcnee was close to 6ft I understand. Maybe he wasn't a full 6'2'' which he sometimes claimed but was probably about 6'1'' or so.
Polar Bear said on 21/Oct/18
There are pictures of Roger Moore and Arnold Schwarzenegger at a party in 1988 (frailes Club Stag Asado). In each picture Arnold’s shoulders and waistline are approx. the same level as Roger Moore’s, however he has a solid height advantage and Roger Moore is looking up at him. Does this mean that Roger was only 5ft 10? Or was Arnold 6ft 2 and has since shrunk in later life?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Sep/18
I agree Rory. Anything under 6ft1 is a joke
Rory said on 11/Sep/18
Moore in The saint and Persuaders always had a good inch or so on 6 foot actors (Terrence Alexander,Terry Thomas,Donald Pickering,Garfield Morgan). In that era he always looked 6ft1-1.5. 188 out of bed, 185.5-186 lowest. He probably did measure 6ft1.5 at around 11am. He clearly wasn't 4.5 inches shorter than Lee, it looked 3-3.5 inches which makes perfect sense with 194 and 186 listings.

There's an actor in Diamonds are forever called Joe Robinson who looked identical in height to Connery in their scene in the elevator, that actor in The Saint looked 2cm taller than Moore. Connery was a decent 6ft2 and Moore a strong 6ft1 imo.

If you guys have all the while been talking about a early/mid day height and/or height in shoes, then 186.0 cm for Roger Moore in the 70's makes sense.

I have always estimated celebs at their VERY LOWEST and no shoes height. My bad, I guess. This also explains many others on this site.

After a long day, I myself am 183+ even in just converse sneakers and 185+ in regular dress shoes. I'm not especially thin either, pretty normal but I look tall in photos.

186 cm is a good guess for low fat, in shape Roger Moore in 70's style 3+ cm heel dress shoes or cowboy boots, I agree

@ Rory,

Agreed On Moore being taller than 6 foot. I still do not see how Mr. Eastwood is as high as you guess but I will admit Sir Roger was right around the 6'1 mark ( When he did Bond).
Rory said on 4/Apr/18
Anyone who says he was 6ft peak clearly hasn't ever watched an episode of The Saint or The Persuaders where he consistently looked a solid 6ft1 guy next to anyone he shared the screen with. From Donald Sutherland,to James Cosmo or Oliver Reed or Ed Bishop, you name it. Always minimum 6ft1. The lowest you could argue is 185cm the most being 187cm, anything above or below those parameters is garbage.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/18
Berta, I think anywhere from 6ft1-1½ is arguable for Moore and he did claim that and also 6ft2 as a morning height. Costner could look that as well but has always stuck to 6ft1.

Personally I'd leave Roger at this and possibly maybe give Costner 6ft1⅛ peak. Probably were very close in height.
joeblowXXIV said on 24/Mar/18

I think 187,5 out of bed and before bed 185,8 maybe. A very strong 6 foot 1 guy that was barely 186. Like peak costner
Ian C. said on 5/Feb/18
Moore said, "I always played heroes because I am six foot one and a half?" Well no, Roger. You always played heroes because you had a beautiful, masculine face. Lee Marvin was the same height as you, and he often played heavies. Tony Curtis was a lot shorter than you, and he mostly played heroes.

What is it with this ridiculous taboo that handsome men can't just admit it? The story Moore tells is, when he was inducted into the British Army he was immediately assigned to Officers Candidate school because he "looked the part." And how did you look the part, Rog? Did you have an enormous nose, like the Duke of Wellington? Well, no. It was something else.

An ideal Simon Templar but a lousy James Bond.
bugs said on 6/Jan/18

Lee WAS a LOT taller than Moore, indeed you could say "towering". They stood back to back in the movie, and there was definitely a 4" difference. Also he was definitely not TALLER than Michael Lonsdale, who is still listed at 6'1 flat. Possibly the same height.

Simply by looking at pictures, films, it simply makes zero sense to list Moore as being only a quarter inch shorter than Timothy Dalton, and half an inch taller than Pierce Brosnan. Dalton was a LOT taller than either of them. If you have to INSIST that Moore was 6'1"+ , then Dalton MUST have been more than 6'2". I find it much more believable that Moore was perhaps Brosnan's height. Somewhere between 6' and 6'1".

Here: Click Here . Note: Dalton as well was already over 50 years old at the time of that picture. You can find more pics from the same event(s) using Google image search or whatever you prefer.

185cm by his last Bond outing but looked 186-187cm in Live And Let Die. Didn't get dwarfed by Yaphett Kotto or Geoffrey Holder...

This height is fine for him and you could still argue 6ft1½. His 6ft2 in the morning claim seems too precise. He was obviously aware of the body shrinking during the day
Rory said on 31/Dec/17
6 foot is a puzzling guess. I've watched many old episodes of The Saint and The Persuaders and with literally every known actor who appeared in those series he looked 6ft1 minimum. I even have scrutinised his footwear because I know James will throw "he wore lifts" back at me and no never once did i see him wearing any footwear which looked remotely suspicious. 6ft1.25 is absolutely perfect for Moore back then.
Richard said on 30/Dec/17
Moore was six foot at his peak, and 5'10" in old age.
avi said on 30/Dec/17
James B states that Lee was a lot taller than Moore. But what is a lot? Like towering? Because then he says there is 3.5 inches between them. Which is a solid difference but it's not a huge amount. Not like Moore was 6'0 and Lee was 6'5.
I think Moore at 6'1 and Lee at 6'4 to 6'4.5ish is fair.
Lee was never a full 6'5.

I do think Moore could look a touch under 6'1 at times though. However strangely in the saint he can look 6'2.
Rory said on 20/Dec/17
He would have been 186cm in Live and let die and 185cm by View to a Kill.
fisherman said on 17/Dec/17
Mister lennon: could be possible, since he never was over 6'1 he could have been at least close to that in 74. He wasn't even 50 at that point so he wouldn't have had lost any height
James B said on 17/Dec/17
Lee defnintly was a lot taller than Moore.
Mister lennon said on 17/Dec/17
Lee was a strong 6'4-weak 6'5 guy. Moore was still 6'1 when he made the man with the golden gun with lee.
Rory said on 15/Dec/17
Not really I thought Moore aesthetically looked great as Bond up until Moonraker which should have been his last Bond outing. He certainly looked the part in live and let die. 6ft1.25 is perfect for Moore it explains all three of his claims, 6ft2 in the morning which he would be at strong 6'1 range..6ft1 a slight round down and 6ft1.5 a tiny round up from 6ft1.25. It also happens to be the kind of range be always looked so I think Roger Moore at 186 is one of the Most reliable listings. I found though often he was acting with other taller actors so the perception was he wasn't that tall when actually a 186 guy in other films with a different cast etc could have been made to look solid tall range especially in the 60s and 70s.
James said on 14/Dec/17
Christopher Lee was 6'4" in 1974 so Moore wasn't even 6'1". It's a real mystery why they cast someone that old as James Bond.
James B said on 13/Dec/17
Rob do you think he could have been just 6'1 flat peak?

There wasn't any less than 3.5 between him and Christopher Lee
Editor Rob
I think the chance of shrinking a full inch at his height is very possible, I wouldn't say Moore was lying about being near 6ft 2 first thing in the morning...maybe he did shrink to a flat 6ft 1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/17

at the moment I still give an edge to Moore, though it may well be the case both are within a tiny fraction of each other if you measured them at age 25.

Scoobydoo: yeah, 185 cm when he was young is reasonable. That's a refreshing comment on this page. A SANE assessment :)

I believe some commenters are taking things the wrong way. Not even that troll here has said Moore was SHORT, he said he was shortER than the other Bond's. Also some seem to forget. We're talking barefoot, afternoon heights here. What someone "could look" on an old TV show wearing cowboy boots is not a good reference point. It actually seems like many people give the elsewhere typical "with shoes" estimate, in which case the listings make better sense.

I've seen a lot of 6ft2 reports for Moore and Brosnan, just as many as there are 6ft1. Really anywhere between those two marks is arguable if you go back an look at their bodies of work. An 80's Remington Steele Brosnan and a 60's Saint Moore I thought looked closer to 6ft2...

Arch, my father died the exact same morning. September 11 2017 at 1:00 am. I performed cpr on him. Sadly it was too late. He wasn't my biological dad, but for me he was my real father and he have been taking care of me since I was not even 2 years old (I'm now 17). I don't have any contact with my biological dad, I only know he's 52 years old and he's 6'0".

He died at 65 years old and he was 6'2.5".
Ben said on 11/Oct/17
Rob, what do you think of Roger Moore's satetment that James Bond can never be feminine, gay or a female? Personally I agree because it's a part of the character so be a very masculine handsome man who drinks his dry martini's shaken and fakes laugh when someone hits him in the nuts. But I do believe he can be black but I would want someone like Idris Elba to play him in that case.
Editor Rob
I honestly haven't given it much thought, but I appreciate it's an interesting debate for many!

I like the idea of James McAvoy as Bond, an even shorter spy!
James said on 10/Oct/17
Moore was the shortest bond until Craig.
Bugsy said on 3/Oct/17
I don't give a crap about anyone's hairpiece or being "too old" (and I personally would prefer to NOT see that stupid trolling here). Moore was my favorite Bond, it is just crystal clear that he WAS shorter than the other (60's-80's) actors.

I suggested this already (well, hinted at it): do a Google image search for "dalton brosnan moore". Dalton is supposed to be 6'1.5 or 6'2" (and taller than Connery, as Dalton is said to have been the tallest actor to play Bond). Look at those pictures and be serious. Which one do you think is ACTUALLY 6'2"? It is reasonable to think Moore could have been close to 6ft1 when he was younger, but not more than that.

Like that Rory
movieguy said on 1/Oct/17
Richard/James comes on here and only ever says so and so wore lifts/ hairpiece was too old etc. Such and such a film was awful. Why bother? Guess I'm feeding the trolls by posting this though.
Rory said on 27/Sep/17
Richard wore lifts when he posted that comment.
Richard said on 26/Sep/17
He wore lifts in "The Persuaders".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/17
He does look near 6ft2 in The Persuaders...
Rory said on 24/Sep/17
The lowest you could argue for Moore is 6ft1, the most you could argue is 6ft1.5. That's why 6ft1.25 is a great fit. Talk of him being 6ft flat and wearing lifts is just an out and out lie.
James said on 23/Sep/17
No he wasn't. Moore always wore LIFTS in films and on TV. He was the shortest Bond until Craig, and far too old to play a secret agent.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/17
Moore was taller than 6ft guys
Arch Stanton said on 11/Sep/17
My aunt died this morning, my dad's eldest sister. She was a similar age to Roger Moore, 90. This really isn't a good year is it!
Editor Rob
sorry to hear.
Bugsy said on 8/Sep/17
Arch Stanton: I was mainly comparing Dalton and Moore (hence the "kind of"). All around a bigger and 'bulkier' guy for the lack of a better word. It is much more notable in The Living Daylights, he seemed to have lost some weight for Licence To Kill.

On the subject of height, you can find many pictures of Dalton, Moore and Brosnan together (probably in 95). Dalton is consistently and very clearly taller than the other two in every single photo. If the estimates are based on Dalton having been 187-188 cm, that places both Brosnan and Moore somewhere in the 180-184 range. We know Moore was the oldest of them and probably had lost height, but if you want to go there, don't forget Dalton is also notably older than Brosnan and was still 5 cm taller than him.

There is no way Moore or Brosnan were EVER near Dalton's height, at any age, peak height or not. I still say my initial guess of 6'0.25" for Moore (as a young man) stands its ground.
James said on 5/Sep/17
Connery was 52 in "Never Say Never Again" and had put on quite a bit of weight since the 1960s.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Sep/17
Connery struggled with 6ft2 next to Pat Roach
James B said on 30/Aug/17
Pat Roach made Connery look small
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/17
Connery was the burliest of the Bonds especially in Diamonds Are Forever...
Arch Stanton said on 24/Aug/17
Dalton big?? Don't agree, he was always slender build. Connery was more muscular and bigger of frame but still relatively slender in the 60s.
Bugsy said on 23/Aug/17
One more odd thing is that BOTH Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan looked clearly (meaning more than an inch) taller than Desmond Llewellyn, but Moore looked to be around the same height or just barely taller. The significance of this is that Dalton is supposed to have been close or equal to 6'2" and Brosnan some measure shorter than Dalton. The comparison with Dalton being slightly more relevant I suppose, since not that much time had passed between his and Moore's Bonds.

Also compare the build of Dalton vs. Moore. Dalton looked like a BIG guy, not just a tall guy. Kind of like Connery. That is actually what I meant earlier when I referred to Moore as being 'slim' or 'slender'. I did NOT mean he looked starved or underweight. I'll also repeat that being slim is very 'ordinary'. If your natural build is slim, there's no way out of it except to build a LOT of muscle (which Moore did not have) or appear to be overweight (which Moore did not do). I think the producers requirement for him to lose weight for Live and let die was precisely designed so that he would appear tall, not stubby, on screen. They succeeded.
James said on 19/Aug/17
Moore was six foot without the lifts he wore on TV and in films. He was the shortest Bond until Craig.
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Aug/17
This is probably most likely and explains why Burt Reynolds(obviously in elevator boots) looked a bit taller than Roger at the end of Cannonball Run. Roger must have not lost much height by his late 60s, though, because he still looked almost as tall as Pierce Brosnan and was still looking like a tall guy near 6'1" next to Jean-Claude Van Damme and James Remar in The Quest.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Aug/17
Finally, spot on now I think.
movieguy said on 14/Aug/17
The 6'1.5'' quote is made when he stands next to Michael Parkinson who is given as 5'10'' on this site. The funny thing is if you take a look at it they look more or less the same height. Pierce Brosnan looks clearly taller than Parkinson at the same event. To contradict this there is the clip where Moore presents at the Oscars with 6'2'' Michael Caine and 6'2'' Sean Connery. Moore is perhaps slightly shorter but only just, does look 6'1'' in this clip. Maybe Moore had lost height by the time of the later clip. I do think Moore was a genuine 6ft plus in his prime but did lose an inch or two with age.
@6'1.5 said on 13/Aug/17
Rob, what do you think is the best option for Roger Moore at his peak?
A) 185.5-187.5 cm
B) 186-188 cm
C) 186.5-188.5 cm
Editor Rob
I think he was quite honest in saying first thing in the morning he was near 6ft's just, maybe he shrank to 6ft 1 flat evening range.
berta said on 12/Aug/17
good update this may well have been closer to his real height probably was somewhere in the 186 range
movieguy said on 11/Aug/17
Gyles Brandreth who knew him well describes Moore as 6'1'' in an obituary column in the Telegraph.
Bugsy said on 9/Aug/17
Rory: I did not concede anything, since I did not at any point claim anything like that. A direct quote from my earlier comment is "perhaps an inch, maybe a little less". Please learn some reading comprehension.

By your logic, the footwear and camera angles could just as well have been favoring Moore, not Lonsdale. And then there's the question of Lonsdale's height, him being 6'1" is in itself only an assumption here. Anyway, I guess I'm going to leave this pointless discussion here, because you seem to have some sort of fixation with Moore being a certain height and you're not even open to looking at it objectively.
Prayer said on 9/Aug/17
Actually Moore could have been "only" 5'11 or 180 cm. Look at him with Geoffrey Keen who was listed as 5'5 or 165 cm. Moore looks barely 6 inches taller than Keen and Keen was a old man by that far. 6'1 and 6'2 is ridiculous.
Jug said on 8/Aug/17
Moore was 6'1 at peak. A guy who is 6'1 will say that he is 6'2. He was 4 inches shorter than Christopher Lee in The Man With the Golden Gun. He had broad shoulders and a big chest and sometimes looked quite big. Note that he and Connery look the same amount taller than Lois Maxwell. Also compare with Bernard Lee and Desmond Llewelyn. At 58 he was still taller than Christopher Walken.
Rory said on 7/Aug/17
@Bugsy : Well that's funny because you've gone from saying he was an inch shorter than Lonsdale to now conceding they were practically the same and also retracting that he was "slender" to now saying he was ordinary. There was no visible difference between them, but it's silly to say he looked 6ft1 there and not 6ft1.25 because a quarter inch can be accounted for by anything from a difference in footwear,camera angle etc even an inch difference could be distorted by such variables. Age too, Moore was 51 during filming, Lonsdale was 47 during filming..Rob has said men on average lose their first mm at age 47-48 so it's possible in the film Lonsdale had lost nothing and Moore had been losing a tiny bit for the last 4 years. I still think Moores build made him look shorter than he was, quite short legs and a long torso.
Bugsy said on 6/Aug/17
Indeed, an ORDINARY build. Not a big guy, nor especially thin. Not especially tall either.

Rory, even after I clarified it you seemed to miss one point I was making. EVEN IF he was the same height as Lonsdale, that would only have made him 6'1" (Lonsdale's listing), not 6'1.25" as he's currently listed.

I don't know how recently you saw Moonraker but I saw it less than a week ago. They were indeed "eye to eye" (standing face to face close to each other), and Moore was the shorter one out of the two. Not by much, but Moore having been taller is out of the question.
Rory said on 5/Aug/17
@Bugsy : Having narrow shoulders though is nothing to do with muscle, its to do with the width of your shoulders which is made from bone. I repeat, he wasn't narrow shouldered. Someone like Damian Lewis I'd say was narrow shouldered, not Roger Moore. I wouldn't even say he was particularly thin really, I'd say he had quite an ordinary build. No but the point is he wasn't shorter than Lonsdale at all ! I watched Moonraker recently and thought both men were eye to eye, not once did I detect Lonsdale was taller, I've no idea how you you concluded that he every scene they were in together they were inseparable in height. Big heeled shoes for men were all the rage in the 1970s, a good chunk of men would have been wearing them.
Bugsy said on 5/Aug/17
Rory: I said "comparatively" narrow shoulders. He did not have a broad chest, he was not very muscular in general (not a bodybuilder). Even that b&w photo above on this site shows that. Does that look like a big, bulky guy to you? He just simply had a smaller (thinner) frame. That's what some people have. I know a guy who is 2 inches taller than me but weighs 40 lbs less. I also know a guy who is exactly my height and weighs 65 lbs less. People are built different.

Maybe he wasn't exactly "an inch" shorter than Michael Lonsdale, who cares. What I said was that Moore was VISIBLY shorter, definitely not the taller one out of the two. Lonsdale btw is listed as 6'1.0".

One more thing I noticed the other day was that (again, in the 70's Bonds) Moore's dress shoes tended to have quite a large looking heel. Large enough for me to clearly notice it and think "hmm, those shoes look bigger than regular". Maybe it was to make sure he would look tall next to the leading women in heels.
Richard said on 3/Aug/17
Moore was far too old to play Bond. He never even looked six foot, let alone 6'1".
Rory said on 2/Aug/17
@Bugsy In my view you're wrong on all accounts. He wasn't narrow shouldered,he didn't have long legs,he wasn't an inch shorter than Lonsdale they were about the same and he wasn't as low as 6'0.25.
Ali said on 1/Aug/17
Rob, Roger Moore was clearly shorter than Connery and Lazenby by about 2 inches or so. Roger Moore
is overall a smaller guy compared to Connery and Lazenby.

5'11 max.
Bugsy said on 1/Aug/17
Just to be clear about this on my part: I don't have any kind of an agenda against Moore. In fact, he was always my favorite Bond actor regardless of his age or whatever.

About his build, I read the Bond producers told him to lose weight (presumably in the early 70's). He was definitely not a BIG guy, he just wasn't. He was slender with comparatively narrow shoulders (and long legs). So again, the perfect example of someone who appears on screen to be taller than in reality.

I just saw Moonraker, Moore was visibly shorter than Michael Lonsdale by perhaps an inch, maybe a little less.

I can definitely believe Moore WAS genuinely (didn't drop under the mark even after a full day on his feet) 6 ft and again, a genuinely 6 ft guy is TALL so I don't even see a problem here. The heights listed here are low/afternoon heights so my guess is still at 6'0.25".
Mister lennon said on 1/Aug/17
He was 6'1 when he played bond in the 70s.
Prayer said on 31/Jul/17
6'2 is ridiculous. He wasn't no more than 6 ft when played Bond. Yes he was very slim and looked taller than he was.
James said on 31/Jul/17
Moore never even looked 6'1", let alone 6'2".

They would never cast an old man as Bond today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/17
In The Saint could pass for 6ft2
Rory said on 29/Jul/17
The thing is 6ft 2 in the morning can be quite an ambiguous claim. It could mean he meant 6ft 2 straight out of bed meaning he'd be a 6ft1.25 guy, or it could mean he measured 6ft2 in the morning 3 hrs out of bed meaning he'd be a 6ft1.75 guy, it could mean he measured around 6ft2(like 6'1.75 or 6'2.25) at some point in the morning. It's very unclear.
Mister lennon said on 28/Jul/17
Moore always looked 6'1 exept in his 60s, when he looked a strong 6.
Mario said on 28/Jul/17
If Roger Moore says he's 6 ft 2 in the morning or 6 ft 1.5, I believe he's. I mean, he seemed like an humble guy, he even did make fun of his acting. It doesn't make sense to me why he would add an extra 0.25 inch to him.
James said on 27/Jul/17
Moore only weighed 160 lbs so he was quite thin.
Rory said on 27/Jul/17
I actually think his build made him look shorter than he was. He had a big,long torso and quite short skinny legs. Quite unusual actually. At times because of his build I thought he could seem much shorter than 186cm but then when stood next to others you'd see he clearly was that range.
James said on 27/Jul/17
Moore never looked 6'1" in anything. His thin build made him appear taller. Since he wore a hairpiece in "The Saint" and as Bond he probably wore lifts as well.

My grandfather once met Moore and Dorothy Squires at a racetrack and he said Moore was no taller than six foot.
Bugsy said on 26/Jul/17
Moore had the build that made him appear taller on screen. He was quite slim. I don't think he was over 6'1". Never looked THAT tall.

If you're genuinely 6 ft, you are TALL. Doubly so in the old days because the average height was lower.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/17
188.4cm out of bed
Mister lennon said on 26/Jul/17
He was 6'1 peak. He always looked it.
He was only 6 in his late 50s and 60s.
James said on 25/Jul/17
Moore never looked any taller than six foot. I don't know why they cast a 50-year-old as Bond.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 24/Jul/17
Okay, I think the downgrade to 6'1" is extreme.

This listing is fine, but I would have kept the original listing.
even said on 24/Jul/17
a strong legitimate 6 foot 1 .
James said on 20/Jul/17
He should be downgraded to 6'1". Moore was the shortest Bond until Craig.
Mark(5'9.5 said on 19/Jul/17
Still shock of the downgrade.
Richard said on 15/Jul/17
Moore never looked his stated height. I'm surprised they cast him as Bond when he was already well into middle age.
James said on 12/Jul/17
Actually there were many women who did not find Moore attractive. Don't forget he was a very heavy cigarette smoker until he was 45, and overused the sun which led to his long battle with skin cancer.
MJKoP said on 11/Jul/17
James said on 3/Jul/17
He famously wore lifts and a hairpiece as James Bond.

So did Connery...and Brosnan(at least in his last two Bond films, as he himself admitted). Not sure about Lazenby or Dalton.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 11/Jul/17
Interesting, i still wouldn't go lower than 186 cm.

Rob, if Roger Moore is downgraded to 6'1.25", where would that leave a Peak Christopher Lee?
James said on 3/Jul/17
He famously wore lifts and a hairpiece as James Bond.

Yh I think a strong 6ft 1 in his Saint days looks very fair. A weak 6ft 1 by his last Bond outing.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/17
Interesting one Rob. At his low maybe
Richard said on 30/Jun/17
At six foot Moore was the shortest Bond until Craig. He was also far too old to play 007.
