Romola Garai's Height
5ft 8 (172.7 cm)
English Actress from films such as Amazing Grace, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights and Atonement. Her modelling agency gave her 174cm.
I am 5ft 8in with a D-cup bra so hardly a shrinking little actress. But you
can’t come to terms with that at 18 or 19.
I am also a size 10 dress, which is regarded in Hollywood as “big”. I wish I
had not listened to a single piece of advice about weight. It is as if some
men in Hollywood find the thought of a real woman’s figure off-putting or
offensive. I wonder why? My magazine photos have been airbrushed in the past
to make me look smaller and thinner.
It is an insult to normal-sized women.

174cm is accurate. In almost every scene in the Hour she wore two-three inch heels, thus appearing taller than Whishaw. In episode 3 season 1 when they go to the country however, she is wearing flats and is marginally shorter than Whishaw.

No way she is under 5'10. Whishaw is about 5'8-5'9" and she towered over him in The Hour. She has to be about 5'10".

Consistently at least as tall as Ben Whishaw i reckon . I would venture that she was taller even accounting for high heels but tis difficult to tell. I think you got to give her 5'9. i think....

I posted earlier. She is not 5-10. I stood right next to her. 5-9 max.

Ian McKellan states her as being 5'10 and I say she is close to that range"Click Here
''"That is a challenge, particularly when your Cordelia is 5-foot-10," he says. "That's not easy, but it has to be done." (Romola Garai of "Atonement" plays the role.)''

Just to clear something up Posamund Pike is not 5'9". She did Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley and the two of them were about the same height.

Thats cause Reese is wearing lifts more than half of the time.Check out the premiere pictures, she is a good deal two feet taller than Reese.

SHe doesn't look so tall in Vanity Fair when she stands beside Reese Witherspoon.

Knightley is not a sild 5'7, she barely meets McAvoy with heels who is 5'7 himself.
Garai is taller than both, I would give her a 5.9 mximum, she was taller than the entire cast in Atonement and on stage in the Seagull except McKellen. Stunning woman she is.

She is several inches taller than Keira Knightly in Atonement.. she may have nurses shoes on in the scene and Keira may be barefoot.. But still I would say either Keira is shorter than 5'7" or Romola is taller than 5'8".. I would say probably both..

I'm 5-11. I stood next to her at an event in London--I'd say she's between 5-8 and 5-9.

Got another one. :Click Here
Seems like two feet taller then 5'1 Nathalie Press.

What the hell!!!
Since when was she a model? She is an actress and has been from the beginning for a while now. I don't buy the 5'8 height, she is taller than that. I would say a good solid 5'9.

Definitely taller than 5.8 ft, see this pic next to Rosamund pike who is around 5.9 :Click Here
Both wearing same heels and Romola is definitely taller. My guess is atleast 5.9.

Saw her on stage last night performing in The Seagul and she is freakishly tall. Very gorgeous in real life and a marvellous actress. I just found an article online where it states she is 5-10, which is about right:Click Here

She is taller than 5 8.5 Rosamund Pike, my guess is atleast 5 9.
Elizabeth said on 21/Sep/07
She is atleast 6 ft tall with heels. Saw her at the Angel premiere with Franccois Ozon at the Toronto Film Festival and she was the tallest person out there. Very alluring and very, beautiful in real life.
She is a minimum 5'10 I would say

Saw her performing in The Seagull and I agree with what people say below she is very, very tall. Very stunning in real life, quite a petite frame which makes her appear even taller but she she towered over all her male costars with normal heels.
I would say she is atleast 5'9 minimum.

Very tall girl, saw her on tv she was attending a photocall in Paris for Angel and is very tall. I would give her a 5'9.5.

Saw her in London some time last year, now I realise there was filming going on for Scoop and she is very tall. She was wearing complete flat shoes and still was very tall. 5'9 seems more accurate, she is very pretty and seemed lovely. Quite a smiling face.

No way she is that tall, she is shorter (May be 2 inches) than Diego Luna in Dirty Dancing who is 5´9. I think she is 5´7"
Rose said on 25/Dec/06
Saw her pictures up at Getty Images at the Independent British film awards and she was clearly taller than 5'9 inch Rosamund Pike wearing normal heels while Pike wore a good deal two/three inch heels. She has always given the impression of being tall. 5'8 seems too short for her.
Sarah said on 15/Nov/06
She is towering over everyone in the Angel trailer and stands right neck in neck with 6 ft Michael Fassbender. I would say she is well above the 5'9 frame, more like 5'10 or atleast 5'9 1/2!!!
[Padraig: In the comment Rob posted 174cm from her modelling agency, I think that sounds pretty accurate for this woman.]
Elizabeth said on 18/Aug/06
NO way she is 5'8, 5'9 seems more close as she stood head to head with Charlie Hunnam in Nicholas Nickleby who is 6'1 1/2.

Her modelling agency actually gives her the 174cm, but a few heights I notice weren't correct on the agency site, so...hmm ;)
