How tall is Rory McCann

Rory McCann's Height

6ft 5.5in (196.9 cm)

Scottish actor best known for roles in tv series like Game of Thrones (as Sandor Clegane) and The Book Group. In film he can be seen in Hot Fuzz and Alexander. In the Scotsman newspaper he claimed "I'm 6'6'". These photos were at a Starfury Game of Thrones convention. In person I would have guessed Rory a big 6ft 5+.

Rob, how tall would he be out of bed?
Editor Rob: 6ft 6.5 is very likely
Alex 6'3 said on 20/Nov/17
How he could be a 197 cm barefoot? With shoes on is around 199 cm, which means a 173 cm guy - with shoes on, 175 - should be under his chin.

@Christian: he prob will never do that lol. The 6’5 and 6’6” didn’t go to college with us but the 6’7” did and the fake 6’7” uses his basketball height for all three of us then and now. Even when i played i never claimed 6’6 even tho listed, I always said 6’4/6’5 or almost 6’5. Or 6’4 1/2. But He still calls me 6’6 sometimes 6’5/6’6, calls himself 6’7 and then calls my taller buddy 6’8 or 6’8/6’9 when he himself has always claimed 6’7 (I went to high school with him as well for a couple years and he played ball with me when he was junior and senior and i was freshman and sophomore and he was a legit 6’7” then). But the fake 6’7, I can def say that he’s not over 197.2 prob (at absolute most a full cm taller than you if he reaches the 5/8mark at night). I asked him once why he claims his shoes and he said because he’s always in them and he has always done it since he played ball.

@Canson

I don't get why your 6'5.5" friend (fake 6'7") still continues to claim 6'7" after being called out by you and your friends. Him claiming 6'7" and inflating your friends is bad enough, but even worse when he called your 6'5.25" and 6'6" friends as both 6'7", when one is 2cm taller than the other. It shows that he has a poor judgement of height differences.

@Berta: a friend of my sisters does that too (he’s a bit slow tho). When I met my sisters friend she asked how tall I was to which I replied 6’4 1/2. She said no you’re as tall as my brother and he’s 6’6”. I met her brother a couple times and when I met him he told me 6’6” but he really isn’t over 6’5” max. I even saw him with another 6’4 guy who is friends with them that is maybe a tiny hair shorter than me. I guess 6’6” could be a morning height. However next time I met him he and one of our friends discussed height and he asked him and he said he was 6’7”. Me and the 6’4” guy were both there and spit our drinks out. I called him out and said you’re not over 6’5. He started stuttering etc then stood next to him and everyone there said it’s half inch to an inch (3/4” max is what someone said). Then when he was all but about to say i am taller than 6’4.5 (I’m actually 6’4.33) the other 6’4 guy stood up and said “don’t even try it I’m 6’4 and you’re only an inch taller than me”. I usually don’t see that with a guy 6’5” + but you get some that do it. My ex teammate in college when I played ball is an example. He’s maybe slightly taller than you and Christian are at best and claims his listed height 6’7” to this day. I can almost gauge him to a T as I have a friend the exact same height as Christian 6’5.25 at night and a 6’6” friend as well as a 6’7” friend who I am close with. The 6’7” friend and the fake 6’7” and I were all roommates in college one year when we all played together. But the 6’5 and change the 6’6 and the fake 6’7” all stood right next to each other once when the true 6’7” and I called him out about him lying about his height and you could see in succession about a cm difference with the 6’5 and change and a cm Lower than the 6’6” yet he claims 6’7” and tells me I’m 6’6 since I was listed at that and tells our 6’7” buddy that he’s 6’8 since he was listed at that when he played. The other two didn’t go to college with us yet he inflates Them and called them both 6’7” once too
Canson said on 5/Nov/17
@Rob: in this height chart he doesn’t even touch 6’5 maybe it’s slightly off but that all but negates 6’5.5. Max maybe 6’5 or a full 196.
berta said on 3/Nov/17
Christian-6'5 3/8 its strange that some very tall guys lie about their height. i can understand if you are 168 cm and feel bad about your height and go around sayin youre 170 cm. At the gym couple months ago there was a guy that was taller than me and i thought to myself " this guy is really tall he must be 199 cm maybe even 2 meters" so i asked him how tall he was and the asnwer was " im about 205 cm" he then asked my how tall i was and i answered " 196 cm" i guess 197 is closer to the truth but as i said before if i lift really heavy at the gym after a day at work i can go under it by 2 mm ore somethin like that. Either way we where standing infront of a mirror and i have good posture and he had bad psoture so we looked pretty mutch the excaxt height. I saw on his eyes that he knew that i new that he was lying about his height. i guess he thought i would say that i was 203 cm. So even a guy that was 200 cm tall claimed 5 cm taller. to me thats extreme. ok if people go with morning height. there is no lie in that, some people do that but he really claimed morning height + boot height :P

@Editor Rob

Not everyone who adds an inch are lying (or at least intentionally lying) though. Some actually believe they're as tall as they claim, or they round up from a very early measurement. I've known quite a few people who've never measured themselves on a stadiometer after reaching adulthood or stopped growing, so they actually believe that they're the height they've been told by family and friends (which are often inflated to begin with). And then they're those that got measured very early in the day, so they round up from that measurement, not knowing that they shrink throughout the course of a day. (e.g. a 6'1" guy who claims 6'2" because he was measured at 6'1 5/8" or 6'1.75" very early in the day so he rounds up that measurement to 6'2")
Editor Rob: yes, there are certainly a few reasons as you mention.

I have heard some people base their claim off what others are claiming, not ever being measured themselves.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 28/Oct/17
@Canson

Most of my friends who I hang around with aren't that honest though. The majority of them claim at least 0.5" taller. I even have few friends who inflate about 2". Oddly enough, the most honest one I have is around 5'8", since in my opinion that's one of the most common heights where guys inflate.
Editor Rob: tall men are not immune to lying.

As Matthew Kelly said, he knew he was 6ft 5 prime but actually told people he was 6ft 6...in fact he listed himself in the Spotlight Directory as 6ft 6 to begin with, before changing it years later to 6ft 5...
Canson said on 25/Oct/17
@Rob: I agree with everything you said. 6’5-6’5.25 for Rory maybe and 6’3 for Gwen absolute max
Canson said on 21/Oct/17
@Rob based on the height chart for the two with you in it, you look your norm of 5’8 1/8 while Gwen looks 6’3 flat not 6’3.25. Rory looks more 6’5 1/4 than 6’5 1/2. Albeit small diff he’s more a strong 6’5 than 6’6” which makes since with his 6’6” claim since he would measure similar to Christian 6’6” out of bed and upper 6’5 or mid 6’5 in the first 2-3 hours of the day which some may round up. Although I have a friend the exact same size who is 6’5.25 exactly 196.2 at 8pm and just says 6’5. He was measured 6’5 1/2 before at one point when he played ball and listed 6’7” on his college roster and still always claimed 6’5. I didn’t know him when he played ball back then personally but since I have known him the last 10 years or so he has always said he’s 6’5” in casual convo and 6’5” and change to us as close friends. However having a close circle that includes a 6’3 (190.3cm at night) me at 193.9 him 196.2 and a 198er and a 200.5-201 friend we always stand out. But all of us claim our exact heights too. I may be the only one who throws change on periodically and only if it’s someone close in height with me or if I’m wearing Jordan like sneaks or boots otherwise I just say 6’4” too
Editor Rob: Rory is a minimum 6ft 5 I feel, I think he is probably 2 inches taller than gwendoline who at night might go to 6ft 3 flat, but during the morning will look 6ft 3.5 range...
Canson said on 28/Sep/17
@KH: yes agreed it's not as easy to see those differences but I doubt highly he's almost 6'6". He doesn't look over 6'5 maybe max 196cm flat 6'5 1/8ish that makes 6'6" in shoes. But 6'7" in shoes is possible out of bed. But for normal purposes he's 6'5" barefoot
Canson said on 28/Sep/17

KH said on 20/Sep/17
6'7 with shoes. Close to 6'6 normally. I mean its not as easy as some of you act like it is to figure out another persons height in person if your not someone that really pays settention to something like that. Its not crazy at all that Gwendolyn Christie could think he was 6'7. Go get a ruler and look at what an inch looks like.
even said on 20/Sep/17
for him a height of 6 foot 5 is well deserved .
Canson said on 14/Sep/17
@Christian and Mimi: I think Gwen may have exaggerated more than anything or Maybe he's a shoe claimed and 6'7" in shoes in the morning. But looks 6'5" really
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 13/Sep/17
@Editor Rob

Perhaps you should give him both a peak and current listing?
Sam said on 7/Sep/17
He does look as listed here with Bjornsson in the season finale of GOT.

Editor Rob said on 6/Sep/17
A chance Rory did lose a fraction of height because when younger he once fell 15 ft and broke 2 ankles.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/17
Not under 6ft5
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 1/Sep/17
@Mimi

But she should know Rory was inflating his height because no person that's 2 inches shorter then them would believe that's a 4 inch difference unless she's bad at judging height.
Viserys-Blackfyre said on 30/Aug/17
He was definitely 6'6'' during his younger days. Look at pictures of him in his younger days and take a look at that picture of him and Jason Momoa. He is clearly at least 2 inches taller than Momoa. If Rory is only 6 foot 5 and a half, then Jason Momoa is under 6'4''.
Mimi said on 22/Aug/17
Christian-6'5 3/8 maybe because Rory told her he was 6ft7 during shooting, production etc.
Canson said on 14/Aug/17
6'6 is a bit high for him honestly but realistic as he could be rounding on a morning measurement. But Much better than 6'7" lol. Really looks 6'5" honestly.
Mimi said on 13/Aug/17
@Canson yeah I thought so too. He is a strong 6ft5 maybe close to 6ft6 but not 6ft7.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 13/Aug/17
@Mimi

I don't get why she would inflate Rory, since she's honest with her own height. If Rory's really 6'7", then Gwendoline's 6'5".
Canson said on 13/Aug/17
@Mimi: I think she exaggerated a bit. He's not much more than a 6'5 maybe 196cm at his lowest
Mimi said on 11/Aug/17
Gwendoline Christie described him as a 6foot7 man.
Guanzo said on 1/Aug/17
6'4.75'' at worst
Balrog said on 21/Jul/17
Rob you think Rory would edge out Nonso Anozie?
Editor Rob: they are certainly quite close, I think a better chance Rory edges Nonso, but both may well fall into a fraction over 6ft 5 range.
Matt6'5" said on 18/Jul/17
I really haven't seen much of him (don't watch GOT) but in hot fuzz he looked huge. Probably camera tricks and such. With rob, the listing does look a lot more accurate.
even said on 4/Jul/17
six foot five
Deathstroke said on 20/Jun/17
He looks 196cm/6'5.25" in Game of Thrones :)
Canson said on 13/Jun/17
@Christian: thanks! Looking at him next to Gwen Christie I see maybe 5-6cm tops. Gwen could fall under 6'3 looks like it the more pics I see whereas before I always thought she was a full 6'3" or a hair over. I think you'd edge Rory or be less than 1/2cm difference can't see him taller than you honestly
Mark(5'9.25 said on 13/Jun/17
The big head alone suggest that he's over 6'5".
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 12/Jun/17
Canson's correct, he's 6'5" flat. At the most 6'5 1/8". Rob, you lowered AJ from 6'6" to 6'5.75", so you might as well do the same thing and downgrade McCann.
Canson said on 3/Jun/17
Rob I must say a flat 6'5" is arguable as is 195cm. You come up higher on him than you do AJ or any other 197cm guy you have a pic with
Editor Rob: it is arguable, I feel Rory does have a fairly big head in person.
World Citizen said on 28/May/17
6 ft 5 (196)
Valhalla said on 23/May/17
Hey rob how many inches is this between you guys?
Editor Rob: maybe near to 9 visually
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/17
Rob, why not give him the same as Howard Stern?
Editor Rob: it is definitely arguable, I wouldn't go to a flat 6ft 5 for Rory though.
Canson said on 6/May/17
6'5" tops
berta said on 5/May/17
i trust robs listing on this guy but i think if anything he is more in the 196 range than 198.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Apr/17
I think a fraction over 6ft5 is more likely than under. Still think Clive Russell would edge him out though
KH said on 18/Apr/17
Come on he isn't standing perfectly erect and the back of his head is hitting 6'5. Right around this mark. Here we go arguing quarter to half inches on really tall men again like its life and death.
S.J.H said on 10/Apr/17
Again i check on the 2nd picture with rob he look solid 6'4 and he have thin lower lips moving upwards that may fool people he look 6'4.5
Canson said on 23/Mar/17
I don't know Jordan87 with rob and on TV she looks 6'3". Worst is a 190 cm lady
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 15/Mar/17
6ft5, but no more than that. He never looks like a 197cm guy.
Canson said on 14/Mar/17
194-195 barefoot weak 6'5". 6'6ish 197/198 in shoes
Jordan87 said on 8/Mar/17
He is 6'5", Christie is closer to 6'2", maybe 6'2.5" Going against popular belief Christie does not break the 6'3" Mark With Rob. Her hair style gets her at the 6'3" Mark but any fool can see that.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 1/Mar/17
Rob, are you considering a downgrade? I think in person, he would be taller than he would appear in the pictures above.
184guy said on 27/Feb/17
Rob if you still feel that he is a strong 65,maybe the 6'5.25 listing would be better
He certain look shorter than a guy like Joshua who could be 6'5.5-6'5.75
Concerned 182 cm said on 18/Feb/17
C'mon Rob, the height lines on your own picture show the top of his hairline just barely touching 6'5.

My guess would be 6'4.5 - 6'5.
EzioAuditore711 said on 13/Feb/17
Why haven't you downgraded him yet, Rob?
Jackson Martinez said on 13/Feb/17
Rob, it seems like you are not going by the lines you have add to the pictures.
You might think your guess when you met the celebs in person is more accurate than one or two pictures.
If we would only take your pics as evidenve Rory would be 6'5 max, Nash and Nairn would reach 6'8 barely and Thor Björsson would be 6'7 if he is lucky.
Editor Rob: I still feel Rory falls into a stronger 6ft 5 zone.
berta said on 31/Jan/17
this guy is shorter than me there is no way he can be 197. i think if you took away 1/4 inch then its good. 196 dude that is close to 198 in the morning
184guy said on 17/Jan/17
Rob,what about bring this guy down a bit ?
You are dropping height and he doesn't look over 6'5
Editor Rob: he could be a flat 6ft 5, but I feel he can look over it too.
Chris said on 9/Jan/17
Looks 195. difference between him and Gwendoline is too close to be over 2 inches
Celebheight User 555 said on 8/Jan/17
The 6'4 mark in the pic comes bang on up to his hairline so I cant see him being 6'5 fully, hes 6'4 and a half in my opinion.
Shredder said on 24/Dec/16
This guy could have been a good Negan.
Guanzo said on 23/Dec/16
6'5''
Canson said on 25/Nov/16
Weak 6'5 barefoot . 6'5.5 maybe 6'6 in shoes which is why he claims 6'6". He isn't 3" full taller than Gwendolyn Christie

6'4-6'4.5.

He's not 20 anymore give him a break..

Agree with Bobby and Ali Baba. Weak 6'5. 194-195 barefoot.

On the 2nd picture on right side he atually look as tall as ryan mcpartlin

Christian-196cm (6ft5.25in) said on 20/Aug/16
Another actor that Rob may have overlisted. To me, he looks a flat 6ft5 (195.5cm)
Canson said on 23/Jul/16
Yea he looks 196 tops maybe even 195.
Alex said on 8/Jul/16
A bit shorter than sir Russell, but still really tall, maybe 196 or 197 cm in this pic, but my opinion, not over a good 193 or 194 cm without footwear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jun/16
Yeah berta, 196cm looks spot on. I don't see him as a guy near 6ft6. Clive Russell looks taller
Editor Rob: I would say both these guys are very close in height in person...I think you'd need to have measured them both to see if there was more than 1/4 between them.
berta said on 3/Jun/16
In the photo i would have thought maybe 195 .I tihnk like this:
195 25%
196 50%
197 25 %

I'm a legit 6'6" as well now. 6'6.5" out of bed.
S.J.H said on 30/Apr/16
I had to be honest to say that rory look more similar to ryan mcpartlin height with rob. More specific that he look like 6'4.5 on the left picture and 6'4 on the right picture. Maybe 6'5 was the max he could apear in person?
Alex said on 23/Mar/16
His eye level suggest more like 194,5 or 195 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/16
Rob, maybe 6ft5¼ could be on the money for him?


He might squeeze out another centimetre. But like fellow GOT castmate Nonzo Anonsie, his 6ft6 claim might be a little embellished.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/16
"Rory McCann's height is 6ft 5in (195.58cm)"

Maybe 6ft5½ earlier in the day, Rob?
Editor Rob: I certainly would say 6ft 5 wasn't impossible, but I just don't know if he's a guy who can stretch up another cm when you get him under a stadiometer.
John said on 3/Mar/16
195-196cm. Don't really see a 197cm.
NBAer said on 29/Feb/16
Rob,you're clearly above his chin area,actually the top of your head is level with this guy's lower lip,so around 18-19cm difference maybe imo... I can't see him as any taller than 192,maybe 193-194cm max since he has a big head.Another very generous listing imo...

S.J.H said on 20/Feb/16
I couldn't lie to say he look over 194cm with rob. Unless rob on a good day at 5'8.5 to make rory look close to 6'5 but i'm going to stick with 6'4.75 and probably a 1.25" dress shoe make him 6'6 , 6'5.5 is bizarre
Canson said on 2/Feb/16
Ezioauditore711: I agree with you and others on your assessments. Rob comes up to him the same as my 5'8 wife comes up to me at 194-195 cm. bet you at 6'5 and change would edge him out and Ali Baba even more so at a legit 6'6"
EzioAuditore711 said on 30/Jan/16
STILL no downgrade? You need to shave an inch off of this listing. He's 6'5.5" only with shoes on.
@Brian said on 21/Jan/16
Posture, build etc. do add to it, Rory has shown incorrect or relaxed posture in photos, there are some pics of him next to Gwendoline and in one his knees are bent way out. There were some pics put up of him before and after filming s4 when he was working out and he had a much straighter back and looked in balance at 6'6.
184.3cm (Night) said on 21/Jan/16
Well after seeing him next to Gwendoline who is 6'3 with at least a 3 inch boost from her footwear i can't see him under 6'5. They were equal so he hits 6'6 give or take a fraction in normal footwear. Hence his claim i guess.

I do agree that he looks a weak 6'5 in the pic though, 6'4.5" even.
Crane said on 20/Jan/16
I've been said before that he wasn't 6'5.5. He always looked around 6'4.5 - 6'5 range in GOT. The maximum for him is 6'5 flat and that's it.
James B said on 16/Jan/16
i would guess 6'3 or 6'4 compared to rob if I didn't know his height
Brian said on 13/Jan/16
A trainer who worked with him said he had poor posture due to an old injury...he also bends sometimes at the knee and stoops/leans in slightly in pictures.
Zalean said on 5/Jan/16
197 is too high. 195 is right.
joe @@ said on 13/Nov/15
Rob, it may be too close to the height of 6'5 legitimate as Wladimir and peyton manning
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 7/Nov/15
Rob,still no downgrade ?
Rob,Is he taller than Joe,Hopper,Nonso,196 challanger or even Yeager ????
Editor Rob: with others from game of thrones I'd say that 6ft 5 or 5.5 is arguable, for the moment I left him at 6ft 5.5 as I don't know for sure if he's a flat 6ft 5.
joe @@ said on 9/Oct/15
I would not go with 194 cm more could be 6'5.25 as peyton manning Click Here

Andrea said on 7/Oct/15
I'm talking about this picture... Do you agree that some height is missing then? If you tell me that he's 100% no shorter than 6'5 in person, i can believe you... The picture just doesn't show a big 6'5 guy next to 5'8, just saying that!
[Editor Rob: I think he's standing decent enough, I mean I'm a bit loose, but I do think a half inch has gone missing...not as bad as Colin Samuel who really looked solid 6ft 4 range.

actually it's the same camera/photographer for ryan mcpartlin, but I do think rory is taller, 6ft 5-5.25 is quite arguable, even Maisie called him 6ft 5...]
Andrea said on 7/Oct/15
With "an extra bit" do you mean a good inch? He's roughly around your hairline level and you said that's about 1.5 inches (to the top of the head), which means he looks about 6'4.25 with you... Click Here
[Editor Rob: beside Gwendoline here I think that's pretty accurate, somewhere in 6ft 5 range, 5.5 could always be a fraction too high.]
Andrea said on 6/Oct/15
Rob, I am considering the fact he's got a big head when i say he looks not much more than 194 with you! You say his posture was ok, then the photo took away about an inch? As i said, do you think what happened is the same thing that happened with Colin?
[Editor Rob: I'm giving him benefit that he has an extra bit of height in him.]
Andrea said on 5/Oct/15
So, do you really think he'd be taller than both Kobe and Ibra, if measured? And why does he look max 194 with you? Just bad posture or some camera effect (similar to what happened with Colin Salmon)?
[Editor Rob: in person his posture is ok, he certainly isn't 6ft 6 walking about, but with a longer than average head (possibly 10.5 inches) that can make him appear a bit smaller I think, but I would say no less than 6ft 5.]
Andrea said on 3/Oct/15
Yeah, he is a big guy but still he doesn't look (much) over 194 with Rob, that's a fact! Also, in GOT i would have never guessed him as a big 6'5, let alone his claim of 6'6! Rob, do you think he'd be comfortably taller than a Kobe Bryant, if measured? Or even Ibra?
[Editor Rob: I do think he is 6ft 5 range, that's what I felt, but 6ft 6 range seemed too much, I give him 6ft 5.5 because he may well still measure that.]
Ali said on 1/Sep/15
Definitely a big big guy!

197cm is too much for him I think. He looks to be max 194cm. 6'4.5 I think that is.
Tunman said on 12/Aug/15
I recall a guy who was 6'5.5 with probably a big 10.5 head.I definitely felt I was 1 cm over the middle of his mouth.That's certainly 8" difference.
I would have thought there is 8.75" difference in the right pic that would make Rory 6'5 but no more,and we aren't sure Rob isn't dropping height.He can even look 6'4.5 on the left pic but Rob wouldn't be that far of course.6'5 is fine and the .5 is useless in my opinion.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/15
I think he'd measure shorter than Clive Russell.
Maximus said on 21/Jun/15
it is so stupid when someone list him at 6'4.75"....really....a 1/4" from 6'5".....its obvious that he is around '6'5"...he towers over Rob....get for real Rob height estimate is very accurate.
Crane said on 2/Jun/15
6'6...... More like 6'4.75 - 6'5 flat! Anything more than 6'5 195.6 for Rory is a load of Imagination...
hal said on 21/Apr/15
You peopled to stop trying to have this guy downgraded. Rob has actually seen this guy in person and he's positive he's a strong 6'5". And I agree with that. The Hound is supposed to be a big dude. I don't think they'd cast a guy who isn't close to 6-and-a-half feet tall.
Matthew said on 19/Apr/15
Jason Maomoa is more 6'3" and change than a full 6'4" imo. McCann is about 6'5", maybe a little over it, but closer to 6ft 5 than 6.
Andrea said on 18/Apr/15
"EzioAuditore711 says on 14/Apr/15

He probably will never downgrade him, even if he looks max 6'4.5 next to him...

he looks so swag in the second picture.
bobby h3342 said on 13/Mar/15
half the guys that our barefoot 6,4.5 claim 6'6 and its mostly accepted. look at mj or kobe or Charles barkley. a lot of people claim there shoe heights for most part if someone says there 6'4 there most likely 6.2.5 to 6'3 barefoot. that's the way it seems to be. and even though this site says barefoot estimates, its still 75% shoe heights, in my opinion
184.3cm said on 2/Mar/15
My first impression was a flat 6'5, he has a relaxed posture. He Probably claims shoe height since he is a big star now.
joe 193cm night said on 1/Mar/15
Jared uses many great shoes and to realize the photos with this Momoa forcing posture
Andrea said on 28/Feb/15
Of course he does, this guy is not 6'5.5, unless he's losing some height in the photos! Is Rory taller than Jared Padalecki in person, Rob?
[Editor Rob: yes he's taller up close.]
Andrea said on 27/Feb/15
Nope, joe. Ali tries to be objective, which is a good thing, btw... If you wanna go objective, this guy doesn't look 6'5 at all in this photo! He looks a good 6'4 range guy, maybe 6'4.5 at best! If he'd manage to gain another inch in posture or whatever, then yeah he might be as listed but that's another deal! This photo certainly doesn't show a 5'8 guy next to a 6'5.5 one!
[Editor Rob: one thing is...Clive Russell does give more of the taller impression (if he stands at his tallest) out of rory and himself.]
joe 193cm night said on 23/Feb/15
Andrea,Ali always tries drops dramatically these guys, this guy is a 6'5 variables
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Feb/15
Rob could 6ft5¼ be a little closer to the mark?
[Editor Rob: he might measure that...]
Andrea said on 10/Feb/15
Well, then some height must have disappeared in this photo, like Colin Salmon, because Ali's photo says it all...

That certainly is not only 0.25 inches difference between "Big Rob" and him :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Feb/15
Rob, who who was taller in person this guy or Nonso Anonzie?
[Editor Rob: harder to tell as Rory I think could look anywhere in 6ft 5 range, but not a big 6ft 6 guy.]
EzioAuditore711 said on 30/Jan/15
I didn't say he was 6'3.5''. I said he LOOKS closer to 6'3.5''. Learn to read. He could very well be 6'4.5''. Why would he lie about his height though? He sure doesn't look almost 6'6'' with Rob. I'm 6'6'' and 5'8'' people reach my chin. Based on this picture Rory is about 6'4''.
Andrea said on 13/Jan/15
6'3.5 is 100% impossible!!! You agree, Rob? I mean, he has no less than 8 inches on you and you are a bit over 5'8! 6'4.25 is the minimum he might be, just basing on this picture...
Ivana said on 10/Jan/15
EzioAuditore711: Based on what?
EzioAuditore711 said on 20/Dec/14
He looks closer to 6'3.5'' than 6'5.5''. I'd give him 6'4'' at a stretch 6'4.5'' but no more. Needs a downgrade. No way is he nearly 6'6''.
Andrea said on 1/Dec/14
He looks taller than 6'4 with Rob, but i would say more 6'4.5-6'5 zone than 6'5.5-6'6! He really looks noway near his claim, let alone his proportions, Arch, because that means nothing! You cant say "this guy can't be only 6'4" just basing on proportions...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/14
Rob, maybe he's 6ft5¼ like Nonso Anozie?
[Editor Rob: it is a good chance, somewhere in 6ft 5-5.5 range.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/14
Rob, are you sure he's this tall?

I have a hard time believing he's only marginally shorter Clive Russell.
[Editor Rob: 6ft 5 flat isn't impossible.

Arch Stanton said on 9/Nov/14
Andrea says on 9/Aug/14
For sure he gives a taller impression ;) I mean, i'd be surprised if this guy was really this listing, this is pretty optimistic like listing G at 5'8 xD

If you look at photos of Rory I'd say actually he has nearer a typical 6'6" look than 6'4". It's a noticeable difference from how a 6'4" range guy looks. Sometimes I think the photos with Rob bring out the downgraders who start to place 100% everything on them, "oh he LOOKS 6'4 range in this photo with Rob, therefore it's impossible he's actually taller". Click Here Proportionally to me he looks in 6'5-6'6 range.
Jon said on 18/Oct/14
What would you say his head size is Rob?
[Editor Rob: possibly in 10.25-10.5 range, the 99th percentile range.]
Tommo said on 14/Oct/14
If he's as tall as Gwendoline when wearing heels (her, not him, lol) then I'd say 6'5 is probably right on the money.
Lonestar said on 12/Sep/14
I don't think Clive Russell edge Rory. They were probably same height but Russell win by shorter neck high shoulder
Kostas said on 30/Aug/14
He looks close to Gwendoline who is in heels here. What do u think Rob? How tall is the blonde guy?
Click Here
[Editor Rob: you mean Nikolaj? I think his top range is 6ft 1.5, at times he can look anywhere in 6ft 1 to 1.5 range.]
Concerned 181 cm said on 10/Aug/14
Lars Mikkelsen, who is listed here at 6'3.5, also looks nearly the same height as Rory when comparing them to Robb. No more than an inch difference, most likely less.
Andrea said on 9/Aug/14
For sure he gives a taller impression ;) I mean, i'd be surprised if this guy was really this listing, this is pretty optimistic like listing G at 5'8 xD
Andrea said on 9/Aug/14
Well, Clive Russell looks 6'4 just in this pic... This guy can look between 6'4 and 5 here, for sure not 6'5.5 unless he's losing an inch in posture!
[Editor Rob: clive does give off a taller impression in person, but then is a bit skinnier aswell.]
Sam said on 7/Aug/14
To me, he looks the same height in photo as Clive Russell but Russell is slouching and McCann is standing with better posture. Like I said, I think McCann can still pull off 6'5" but I don't see 6'5.5" or 6'6" and never really have since I've been watching GOT.
Concerned 181 cm said on 7/Aug/14
Yeah, I'm not seeing him even being 6'5 in this picture, and definitely not over it. He looks more 6'4.5, and I think even that's being pretty generous.
Bishop said on 6/Aug/14
Rob, I don't know how you see 6'5.5" with this guy. It actually looks like YOU'RE the one slouching, not him. He looks 195 cm max and that's being generous considering Ali Baba's pic.
zackmack said on 3/Aug/14
Poor guy. He's way above average a.k.a being 'too tall', he's really hairy and not exactly good looking.
There's no doubt he can act though and I wish him all the best
James B said on 31/Jul/14
NO WAY is he looking 6'5.5 with rob more like 6'4.
LAnative said on 24/Jul/14
Looks about 2" taller than Gwendoline Christie and about 3" taller than Jason Momoa.
Concerned 181 cm said on 7/Jul/14
So why do you come up to his mouth? There's a 9.5 inch difference, shouldn't you barely reach his chin?
Concerned 181cm said on 2/Jul/14
How much is he slouching here? He should be a full head taller than Rob or slightly less. He really doesn't look it in these pictures.
[Editor Rob: he was standing fine I thought...someone like say Clive Russell was dropping a few inches in posture, that guy looked to be nearer 6ft 6 than Rory.]
Andrea said on 29/Jun/14
If he's slouching at least an inch as you say, i could buy 6'5.5 for sure... But something tells me he isn't! He really doesn't look over 194-195 in these pics...
iyolo said on 27/Jun/14
On both pics (especially the first) he is slouchng-he loses at least an inch that way-i think he is in the 195 rang,maybe a hair more. As for KROC,he looks intimidating,trust me-especially with Maisie Williams :)
The Horse of FUNK said on 26/Jun/14
Compared to 6'3" Gwendoline Christie (Brienne on GoT), I just have a hard time seeing this man at 6'6". There was not much difference between the two. I'm starting to think McCann is more 6'4" - 6'5".
KROC said on 25/Jun/14
I call BS. Sorry Rob, I respect your judgment, but this guy doesn't even look the full 6'5 to me. And there's nothing intimidating about this guy whatsoever.
Rikashiku said on 24/Jun/14
6'5.5" to 6'6" looks about right.
C to the D said on 9/Jun/14
Easy 6'5. Saw him when my company did some work on a set in Belfast. He's a huge guy.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Jun/14
Perhaps it's the beard making it look even longer.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Jun/14
Rob would you think he might have an 11 inch long head? He certainly seems to look to have the head of a 6'6" man.
[Editor Rob: I would say about 10.5]
Arch Stanton said on 30/May/14
I really cannot believe some people think he's no more than 6'4! He looks a weak 6'6" in the left photo and 6'5" in the right to me here. Looks very intimidating anyway.
Andrea said on 24/May/14
Rob, sorry if i insist, but do you completely rule out 194 range? Ali has a point when he says he doesn't look much over 6'4, just look at the comparison with your 6'5.75 version... He looks at least 3 cms shorter to me! One thing is sure, he's not 6'5.5, you can argue around 6'5 but not more... If you tell me he has worse posture or shoe dis., then yeah, there's a chance he's taller than 6'5, but i doubt it
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't rule out 6ft 5 flat, but I am not as confident he'd be that low]
dude said on 17/May/14
An inch isn't as big as some think. He easily looks 6'5 minimum

I don't get the 6'5.5 here rob. Seems more like 6'4.5 to me
dude said on 7/May/14
look at Rory next to the 6 ft 2 in Timothy Dalton in Hot Fuzz, he is easily 3.5 to 4 inches taller than him. I think people think an inch is bigger than it really is.
Clint 5'9" said on 6/May/14
Although Jason Momoa isn't standing straight, you can still see there's a height difference favouring Rory McCann: Click Here

He only looks 6'3-6'4 in this picture to me. Your head nearly reaches his nose.
Grgo said on 29/Apr/14
In reality there's no way he ever reached 198cm. I don't think hes over 195cm saw him next to jason momoa im not even sure if he looked taller than him really max 195cm.
Bard said on 11/Apr/14
I'd give him 6'5. Looks a little shorter in the pics, but w/e
EzioAuditore711 said on 11/Apr/14
He looks 6'4'' maybe 6'4.5''. Maybe got measured in sneakers first thing in the morning and got 6'5.5'' and thought it was close enough to 6'6'' and that's probably where his claim came from.
Sam said on 8/Apr/14
Rob, what do estimate Rory weighs?
[Editor Rob: maybe close to 240 pounds]
Andrea said on 5/Apr/14
6'2 at best? That's crazy. In these pictures he doesnt look under 194-195 to me, i still doubt he's 6'5.5 but there's much more chance he's 6'5.5 than 6'2!!
CitizenKane said on 5/Apr/14
No way!!! 6.5??? Crap...needs a downgrade immediately. I don't see 197, this dude only 6.2 (188cm) at best, but more 6.1 and half (187cm).
Alex 6ft 0 said on 21/Mar/14
Lillo, at 6'5 your head length is 9 inches since your 5'8 sister hits your chin? Yea Rory can look 6'4-6'4.5 but his head may be longer than average that may be why its a 9 inch difference rather than an 8 inch difference. Up to just below someones mouth is usually 8 inches on a normal sized head of 9.5 inches
Lillo thomas said on 20/Mar/14
Alex I'm 6'5 at my lowest . My 5'8 sister reach about my chin level. If you ask me I would say Rory look about 6'4 range with rob . In the pics above he doesn't look 6'5. I trust Rob judgement . Maybe this guy look 6'5 in person.

@Lillo thomas says on 6/Mar/14
I think this guys needs a downgrade to 6'5 . He is 6'5 tops.

that i agree with. 6'5 is safest bet. can look a bit under but it cant be much because Rob is a lot shorter. if Rob stood straighter and not so close in leaning then yeah could be 6'4.5 area.
Mastro said on 19/Mar/14

Rob, you think Ali's pic is a good one? I mean, that's how a 6'5.75 guy would look next to you? In that case, Rory looks more 6'4... Even if i guess a 6'5 listing would be ok for him... Does he look taller than the big challenger?
[Editor Rob: 6ft 5-5.5 is probably a range I would argue for him. Below it, I'm not so sure.]

Sam said on 24/Feb/14
It should be noted that he wasn't towered by the 7 foot tall Conan Stevens in their scene together in GOT, you'd think a solid 6 inch difference would be more prominent. There's some shots of them rehearsing their fight scene online. Stevens makes McCann look downright svelte by comparison BTW.

Mid190s said on 23/Feb/14
This guy is only 6'5 flat, maybe less.

He looks smaller than myself(196) and challenger 15.
Balrog said on 22/Feb/14
A man of this size is probable he shrinks at least 2cm or even an inch. So possibly he wakes at near 6'6'' and shrinks to 6'5'' flat. This could explain his 6'6'' claim
avi said on 21/Feb/14
@Arch Stanton says on 20/Feb/14
Well he certainly has the long face and structure typical of a 6 ft 6 man. Ali Baba's comparison just makes 197 look dubious doesn't it.

yeah if Ali Baba did some more of these he could get Nairn at 6'8 area tops and Cudmore around 6'6.5 tops. I still think this guy is 6'5 or close but maybe we are just trained to think this way because he set the bar so high with his 6'6 claim! though i think 6'6 is his height in boots rounded up a 1/4 inch so possible 6'4.75 maybe
Ali Baba said on 21/Feb/14
Arch Stanton says on 20/Feb/14
Hmm he has a very long face but considering he's 6'5.5" as Ali Baba points out you'd expect Rob to be nearer his chin than lip. He looks more 6'4.5" to me here.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Arch, I actually said he looked to be in the 6'4.25" range. My measurement was just to show where 6'5.75" would be. I really don't see anything over the 6'4.25"..
Ali Baba said on 21/Feb/14
Well, I have about a 10" head. A person who is about 5'8" comes up to under my chin. This doesn't look like anything over around 6'4" or so.

6ft5 more closer.
avi said on 7/Feb/14
@Ali Baba

you're making the same point i do on this site with the head lengths. throwing Rob's head on top of McCann's comes a decent amount past his. If you measure like this Rory is lucky to be 6'4.75. Rob's head is about 9.5 inches i think so 9.5 + 68 is 77.5 which means Rory should be about equal with if Rob's head was placed on top as per the picture you posted. i say this guy is 6'5 max
Ali Baba said on 6/Feb/14
Even JT's estimate shows him only (only? LOL) being about 8.5" above Rob's height, which is 6'4.75" and doesn't account for Rob's worse posture. Could be in the 6'4.25" or so, but not much more.
JT said on 6/Feb/14
Click Here Rob has worse posture too.
Balrog said on 5/Feb/14
I think 6'5'' flat for him would be perfect.

He could be a fraction under 6'5. Maybe 6'4.75?

he's tall def. a 6"6 but look how tiny his arms are.
avi said on 2/Feb/14
@Rob he isnt a full .75 inch taller than 6'4.4-6'4.5 McPartlin. I think 6'5-6'5'.25 is what you should list him no 6'5.5 is really stretching it (in terms of this site). i mean it just doesnt make sense how Mcpartlin who is not over 6'4.5 is only 1/2 inch to .6 inch shorter. even IF we gave .75 inch difference then 6'5.25 is still generous enough for McCan.
Anon183 said on 1/Feb/14
To me he looks more 6'4 range in these photos, but it could just be because he has a large head, must be 11 inches long?
jimmy said on 1/Feb/14
Clive Russell looked an inch taller in person Rob?
[Editor Rob: clive can look nearer 6ft 6 than some guys can, Rory never struck me as a big 6ft 6. Actually there was one guy I met a couple years back who said 6ft 6 and actually was that range, but he dropped 3 inches in a photo so it's useless!]
Lorne said on 30/Jan/14
I agre Mangiello is a weaker 6'5, he could be a flat 195cm at night(Rather than 195.58, which is 6ft5.) I think this guy is a more solid 6'5. But with Rob saying he'd be similar to Joe and Ken Kirzinfer, he should really be listed 196cm, since he could(by Rob's own admission) be 195.5...

@Lorne says on 20/Jan/14

i think he is 6'5-6'5.25 so yeah we are on a similar page!
but the reason why you see people listed sometimes a litte over is because Rob factors in IF they were to stand military posture which isnt entirely because Rob can also stand complete erect too! and also not everyone stands full when measured. for example i used to stand straight but not absolute straight. i remember i got 70 inches at doctors and i measured 70.25 at home (back in early 2009 i think).
Joe Mangiello would probably measure 6'4.8 at worst. both guys are very similar. Even Mcpartlin (as Rob drew lines below) has Rory at maybe a 1/2 taller than him.
Lorne said on 20/Jan/14
I agree Avi, I said 196cm from the start. But if you scroll down, people we're saying to knock off half an inch. I mentioned the 196 challenger, and Rob went down to 197. If Rob went, that would be the next step! Of course that is how listings evolve, and with this guy, he could use a downgrade(based on what Rob said below as well) Really I was just referring to a pattern with many listings, not Rory's specifically. But I'm sticking with 196cm/6ft5.25, with a chance 195.5cm night time. But I promise you he'd edge out a Joe Mangiello...
avi said on 19/Jan/14
@Lorne says on 16/Jan/14

the reason why is because he looks a weak 6'5. also if add it up Rob comes way past his chin which (2 inches or so) so if Rory has a 10.5 inch head which is stretching it, and IF Rob came up to the bottom of the chin then it would be 10.5 inch diffference. Since Rob comes up 2 inches above it AND is slouching a tad, which I wont even factor in, 10.5 - 2 = 8.5 inch difference. 68 + 8.5 = 76.5 which is 6'4.5. so as you see 6'5 is a very fair listing. Ali Baba has a point he can look 6'4 range but obviously it may be too low to call him in the 6'4.5 range.
issa said on 19/Jan/14

Lorne said on 16/Jan/14
Thank you, Rob! Between 6'5 and 6'6 is fine. What's funny, is now everyone is insisting 6'5 flat. I swear, you could drop him to 194, and people would insist he is 6ft3:)

@Rob

Thanks for uploading...Yeah its very small. Must be half inch difference. If Ryan is really a legit 6'4.5 then Rory could be 6'5.2 but I really think a strong 6'5 is a better fit. I think he'd be like Kurt Kurtznger height.
[Editor Rob: he could be similar to Ken, around 6ft 5 mark, I doubt early 40's he lost height.]
avi said on 10/Jan/14
@Rob

So I think 6'5 would be generous enough for him. Can you get a pic of 6'4.5 guy like Ryan mcpartlin and see if this guy has a solid half inch on Ryan by comparing the 2 photos?
[Editor Rob: I think it this is close, I know Ryan has about a cm more hair in comparison to Rory so I'd say he appears a bit taller.

brotha said on 10/Jan/14
Difference in eye level is an easy 10 inches. Guys saying only 6'4" are whack.
avi said on 10/Jan/14
@[Editor Rob: he looks pretty similar in person to the challenger but he has more of a solid 10 inch head than the challenger.]

OK so he is 8.5 inches taller than you? You come 2 inches above his chin and let's assume his head is 10.25 so if say he really is 6'4.5 weak 6'5
[Editor Rob: in person I think he can look around 6ft 5...but then a guy like clive russell actually looked taller than rory did, but he has a slimmer figure which can always help.]

If they look similar in person I can believe 6'5.5". The challenger does appear taller than any 196 cm guy on this site that I've seen in his photo, but I think usually a 6'5" range guy won't stand as tall as challenger 15 did in a photo with someone much shorter.

Agreed not looking 6'5.5-6'6 but 6'5 is possible. Probably a weak one in reality but damn close. If you stoodnext to hI'm I think you'd have a solid inch maybe 1.25 but if you do head size and compare where rob comes on him its easy to see there's 8.5 max. Rob is 2 inches above a 10.5 max head . Weird as a lot of times with big guys (6'4+) here Rob comes up higher than he should on their head. Obviously there may be room for someone to adjust but even so if this guy went full on military posture no way would Rob not go above his chin
Lorne said on 9/Jan/14
But Remember Baba, this guy has a very large head, and Rob is a tad over 5'8. With that said, I don't see 6'6 either, but I doubt he'd be less than 196. Rob, you said he can look 6'5 range, and he certainly doesn't look taller than the 196cm challenger, 6ft5.5's closer, IMHO.

Assuming it is about 8 inches from Rory's lower lip to the top of his head he "only" looks to have 8-8.5 inches on Rob here, which would put him in the 6-4 to 6-4.5 range, was it possible he was slouching? Granted his head might be 10-10.5 inches but I don't seem him taller than 6-4.5
Ali Baba said on 7/Jan/14
Yes. He seems to look 6'4" with Rob. Could be a tad over that, but does not look the 6'6"listening, or even 6'5" to me.
avi said on 6/Jan/14
@Rob

If his head is 10.5 let's say could be 10.2 of course, you come about 2 inches above chin right to his lip. Wouldn't this be like a 8.5 difference at worst?? So 6'4.5? I think he's 6'5 but the numbers don't add. You come well above his chin. Plus you can stand a tad straighter too!

@Ali baba

That's too low . Are you saying you agree he's 6'4ish? Its not that crazy I guess as Rob seemed to be 8.5 shorter. I think 6'5 is right.
Balrog said on 6/Jan/14
I gotta say he looks way different here than in Game of Thrones!
Lillo thomas said on 6/Jan/14
He looks 6'4 max in both pics. I don't see 9-10 inches between rob and rory. Is tough to see the guy taller than 6'4.5 based in both pics.
Tim said on 6/Jan/14
6 ft 4.25 is my guess

To be honest the only worthy thing of Braveheart is the moving music and therefore I would consider a success. Thankfully I can enjoy the soundtrack without watching Mel Gibson flash his hairy thighs.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 4/Jan/14
Dude looks barely 6ft4.

Yeah the more I look at it the more he looks 6'4". Maybe 6'4.5" at most. But I'm guessing he'd measure a bit taller.
Ali Baba said on 5/Jan/14
I agree with Rampage on this one.
Balrog said on 5/Jan/14
Rampage, look Rob next to McPartlin, listed at 6'4.5'' looks very similar to McCann next to Rob, I see 6'5'' on McCann not sure on the extra half inch but don't know if Rob has footwear advantage?
James said on 5/Jan/14
Yeah he does not look 6'5.5 with rob. Did you have bigger shoes than him rob?
[Editor Rob: there wasn't much shoe difference, I do think his head is a little over 10 inches.]
Pleb said on 5/Jan/14
@maximus You may have investment in Paramount Pictures or 20th Century Fox, I certainly don't. In fact I found Braveheart to be quiet a bore contrary to what the media tried to drum in me. To each his own.
dmeyer said on 5/Jan/14
The top head Is at mouth about 8" taller 6'4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/14
Dude looks barely 6ft4.
Balrog said on 4/Jan/14
Comparing him with Ryan McPartlin he does seems an inch taller next to Rob, 6'5" is possible too.
Tommo said on 4/Jan/14
No way he looks 6'3, doesn't look 6'6 either though. Would he edge out challenger 15 do you think Rob?
maximus said on 4/Jan/14
We got Mel Gibson for William Wallace and it became a huge success despite Mel being shorter than the claimed height of the original Wallace something like 6'5" to 7'....some actors are just made to play the role...like Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 4/Jan/14
His head does look 10.5 inch range and because of that he looks at least 6'5.
avi said on 3/Jan/14
A 6ft man would probably reach his eye line area maybe close to eyebrows so 6'5.2 is probable
Luke Skywalker said on 3/Jan/14
He Looks 6'3" beside Rob.
[Editor Rob: well he's not quite that short!]
Pleb said on 2/Jan/14
I would imagine this is the impression William Wallace would had given, instead we got Mel Gibson.
Kyuss said on 2/Jan/14
6.5 imo
Connor 184cm said on 2/Jan/14
Id say he's 197cm barefeet, the full 6ft 6 with shoes on is probable would you agree rob?
Sam said on 2/Jan/14
Definitely looks close to 6'5" even here. He looks close to my height (although he's got a stockier build and a lot more hair LOL) not 6'6". Next to Joffrey, et al. on GOT he often gives the impression of 6'5" range as well, not taller. Thought he was 6'6" or bigger back in Hot Fuzz.
berta said on 2/Jan/14
hi rob have you seen the swedish original of the movie " the girl with the dragon tatoo" , the millenium movies?. How tall do you think the actor that plays the big evil guy is? I have reagf 198 and 199 and in an interview they said he was 2 meter. Thanks
Frank said on 2/Jan/14
Easyly 6´5" and perhaps 6´6" in a very good day ;)
yalo said on 1/Jan/14
rob 6'5.5 is spot on!
avi said on 1/Jan/14
@Rob
One thing that always seems to puzzle me...if his head is around 10.5 long, and you are 9.5 shorter than him why do come well above his chin? You come like 2.5 inches above it. And let's say there's a slight margin of error so 2 inches. Wouldn't he be more 6'4.5? I think he's 6'5 but I'm just wondering.
Mathew said on 1/Jan/14
He looks 6'4.5", maybe 6'5" in the photos. However I can believe 6'5.5". The full 6'6" seems unlikely though.
Tim said on 1/Jan/14
Gave a 6'4.5" impression when i saw the pic
James said on 1/Jan/14
Rob looks like u have met Bigfoot :)
sigge said on 1/Jan/14
Doesnt look 6'6 to me. A solid 6'5.
Tommo said on 16/Dec/13
Rob did you get a photo when you saw him? And if not do you think you'll get a chance to at a future con? Always looks massive, saw photos of him and Jason Momoa at a comic con in Florida and he looked easy 2 inches taller, if not more.
[Editor Rob: yes, but they have gone awol somewhere in the house before scanning them!]
arbroath said on 2/Sep/13
I know rory, he's 6'6" for def's as my brother is smaller than him and my bro is 6'5". I knew rory when he was 4'2" so he's just a bit taller now
cd said on 16/Jul/13
Rob how come he's still listed as 6ft 6 if you think he's more 6ft 5?
[Editor Rob: he can look 6ft 5-6 range but could measure 6ft 6.]
Ngrganto said on 4/Jun/12
In some scenes he looks like he's not even a full head taller than jack gleeson ( 170cm , 5'7 ) which would make him like in 6'2-6'3 range , i know he's not that short it must be just the angles of camera or something. Think he's 198cm ( 6'6 ) on the spot probably drops to 197 ( 6'5.5 ) at night.
[Editor Rob: I did see Rory earlier this year. I believe he's a 6ft 5 range guy.]
