You don't realize just how tall he really is because in Merlin nearly most the male cast members seems to be over the 5'10 - 5'11 mark, making him seem appear more 6'1 than 3.

6'3 flat (190.5cm) is perfect. Thats what he looked to be in Merlin, wasn't that much shorter than Tom Hopper, but still quite taller than Bradley James.
Canson said on 30/Apr/23
@Rampage: maybe. Worst case maybe 6’3 7/8”
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/23
@Darksol64: 6ft4 in the morning is likely.
Darksol64 said on 20/Apr/23
@ Rampage

6'4 I highly doubt but a seriously strong 6'3 guy. Possible 6'3 1/2 but that's the limit if you ask me. I think I'd bet more on the 6'3 1/4 mark as listed versus 1/2.
Nik Ashton said on 6/Jan/23
Rob looks hunched up!
Darksol64 said on 2/May/22
Given footwear differences I'd wager to say he's probably a flat 6' his extreme low. So 6'3 and a quarter looks spot on to me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Oct/21
6ft3½ is arguable but I struggle to see him as quite 6ft4.
Hyper said on 15/Oct/21
Rob, how tall did he look to you, without considering footwear disadvantage.
Editor Rob
A decent 6ft 3 range, but not in 6ft 3.5-4 zone
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/21
He does look about 2in shorter than Hopper if you compare photos
Covvvid1984. said on 3/Mar/21
Tbh looks 6-3.
Hyper said on 17/Jan/21
Do you think he could actually be the same as Lars Mikkelsen?

I get a similar impression and this guy has less footwear.
Editor Rob
could be pretty close
Hyper said on 1/Jan/21
@Rampage and Rob

I think this guy would be the tallest out of the three. I would put Kevin Sorbo as a close second and Zachary Levi as a close third. All three of them taller than someone like Brandon Routh for sure.
Leif said on 20/Dec/20
Could he be 6'4"?
Editor Rob
In person there's more than an inch between Young and Tom Hopper.
Vincent Caleb said on 7/Dec/20
There is no reason he isn’t the full 191 he is listed, taking footwear into account.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Dec/20
Rob, between this guy, Levi and Sorbo who do you rank as tallest/shortest?
Editor Rob
I think it's a toss up, even Levi there's an argument the 3 and change figure is possible.
Hyper said on 15/Oct/20

In that case,this listing is legit, especially when he had less footwear.

Definitely the easiest 6'3" guy, I've seen!
Hyper said on 13/Oct/20
Rob, did he have a good camera shot, or is the height difference here, better defined?
Editor Rob
I'd say this was quite representative of how Rupert looks in person. Was a couple of inches taller than bruce boxleitner easily that day.
Jkiller said on 22/Apr/20
Doesn't seem much over 6'3 tbh, I'd say 6'3 flat.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Apr/20

He's definitely a bit shorter than Momoa.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/20
Rob, he looks similar to Jason Momoa?

Is he really shorter
Editor Rob
In person I wouldn't have guesse him as tall as 6ft 4, but over 6ft 3 flat.
Canson said on 2/Feb/20
6’4 out of bed possible as is 6’3.75. 6’3-6’3.25 afternoon
184guy2 said on 6/Nov/19
6'4 only outta bed
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Nov/19
He might be strong 6'3 or 6'3 a low.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jun/19
Maybe the same height as John Carroll Lynch. Both of them look 6'3-6'3.25".
Dream said on 24/Mar/19
Rob, would you say, Rupert Young could be taller than J August Richards?
Editor Rob
I give him the edge, but really it is close to call.
Spencer said on 28/Sep/18
Looks 6'3"
Mickie said on 7/Sep/18
Next to Tom Hopper I could see him being more 6'3" than 6'3.25".
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Aug/18
Well, I never knew Rupert was THAT tall!


Dream(5'9.5") said on 6/Jun/18
This guy is easily taller than Brandon Routh without question.
joe### said on 19/Apr/18
6´3 flat is not impossible but he looks taller than routh
Tunman said on 10/Apr/18
190,Rob?he looks very similar to Brandon Routh but has 0.3 less sneakers.Maybe 6'3 flat is better
Editor Rob
In person I'd estimate Young looked taller than 6ft 2.5-2.75 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Mar/18
Rob, how likely is 6ft4 out of bed for this guy?
Editor Rob
I'm sure he'd measure somewhere in that range.
Canson said on 3/Mar/18
I agree with Christian solid 6’3”
Tarinator 6'2 said on 12/Jan/18
Looks about 6’3.5” in this photo. He might be able to pull it off. Looked only 4 cm shorter than Tom Hopper. I am going with 6’3.5” as he looks some 7.5 inches taller than Rob. Besides, he looks of a similar height to that 6’3 3/8” guy and would probably match him height wise.
Jason 193cm said on 4/Jan/18
Looks like a flat 6'3 to me. Great height.
Alex 6'3 said on 1/Jan/18
190.5-191 cm..he looks exactly like me.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 23/Nov/17
Rob, could he stretch up to 6’3.5” on a good day?
Editor Rob
before lunch he might manage close to it.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 29/Aug/17
He could also stretch up to 6'3.5" at times.
Ziggie said on 25/Aug/17
6'3" with the hat! LOL
Mark(5'9.5 said on 7/Aug/17
Actually, he kinda does look 192 cm at times.
Big E said on 19/Jul/17
Looks like a solid 6'3.5
Mark(5'9.25 said on 15/Jun/17
Rupert Young is probably the only legit 6'3.25" here other than Gwendoline Christie.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 31/May/17
Flat 6'3". He has less footwear than Rob and Jenny, but his hat gives him an advantage over them.
184guy said on 22/Apr/17
@Rob,do you believe a guy like Levy is really a Solid 6'3 like Sorbo,Gwen and Rupert ? The more i see, more i Believe he will fall to the weak range.He looked much shorter than you might expect beside a guy like Jared or Conan
Editor Rob
I don't think Levi really would fall under 6ft 3 much.
184guy said on 21/Apr/17
Rob, did Rupert looked 4 cms shorter than Joe Manganiello ?
Editor Rob
Joe is well over an inch taller, though Rupert isn't that much different than say big Gwendoline or Kevin Sorbo (10 years ago).
Mark(5'9.25 said on 17/Feb/17
Rob, who do you think would measure taller, Rupert Young or Liam Hemsworth?
Editor Rob
Mark, I'm not sure...I actually would say out of Gwendoline Christie and Rupert Young, both fall into similar strong 6ft 3 range.
Peter 179cm said on 6/Feb/17
190cm-barely 6'3.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 5/Dec/16
Rob, remember that comic book writer that I mentioned to you about? Roland Mann? He gives a similar impression to Rupert Young. The picture I sent you was actually unreliable since I was closer to the camera and the picture itself came from my IPhone, not to mention he had loose posture much more so than I.

To give my vote, I would put Rupert Young between 6'3.25"-6'3.5"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Nov/16
Looks 6ft3 flat but has less shoe
Blake said on 14/Oct/16
I met this guy a few years ago, didn't really know much about height then.
Alex said on 4/Jul/16
The posture are not perfect, but for what I can see I would say a solid 6'3 or 190,5 cm for Young.
Lord Beerus said on 21/May/16
Is Jenny 5 ft 9 with her footwear?
Editor Rob
that day she probably was right on 5ft 9 in sneakers.
joe### said on 21/Mar/16
AlexMahone,yes He could argue that it does not seem 6'3.25 with the disadvantage of footwear think he could reach 191.1
AlexMahone said on 21/Mar/16
No, typical Johno's arguments. You talk a lot but it has no sense at all. If you downgrade Young you must downgrade Kevin Sorbo as well for example because they are similar in height. O wait I remember you downgrade Chris Hemsworth too to weak 188cm. Madness. :(
Johno said on 18/Mar/16
I noticed this quite alot but alot of people do not consider Rob's posture into consideration when judging the height of the celebrity.

When there are doubleshots with Jenny, you can see this. Here Rob is standing less then Jenny, comparing Rob and Jenny's respective heights in the same event but with other celebs, i can see Rob can standing taller by 0.5 inches in the above picture. At times the taller celebs positioning can force Rob into these postures.

joe### said on 12/Mar/16
with less shoes he is solid 6'3
S.J.H said on 5/Mar/16
I don't think rupert young was over 6'3 but at least this listing in the morning and 6'2.75 by lowest very close to zachary levi
Alex said on 17/Jan/16
Yes, probably this photo is one of the best. The difference between Young and Hopper is pretty clear.

Alex said on 16/Jan/16
Hi Rob, there's something weird about Rupert Young's height. In many photos Rupert is next to Tom Hopper, and they have almost the same height. Young is clearly a 191 cm with or without shoes, I'm 191 with a 1 cm of shoes (I'm 190 barefoot) and a guy like you, 172 cm looks exactly as you in this photo next to me. So, Young is clearly a 191 cm, but why close to Hooper is tall like him? I can confirm that, 191/192 and 196 is pretty evident the difference. I'm almost sure that Young sometimes use elevator shoes or something. What do you think?
Editor Rob
it will just be slight differences in camera angles or posture. In person I've seen them together and would put 4-5cm range between them.
joe @@ said on 27/Sep/15
rob, 190 cm this guy does not look, I think it's a decent 191 cm or'm going blind
SJH said on 26/Sep/15
He only look to struggle 190cm
OneNamePlease said on 26/Jun/15

4'1"guy said on 1/Apr/15
When u are 6'2"+, u dont tend to lie because well, otherwise you are giant in the perception of.people and that isnt a good thing imo

joe 192cm said on 16/Jan/15
It seems high next to Tom Hopper
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/14
6ft4½(194cm) with the cap on
Mike said on 3/Dec/14
Strong 6ft 3 not under. He can look 192 at times 6ft 3.25 is perfect!
Katatonia said on 1/Dec/14
i don't think he'd measure any taller than myself to be honest. He'd be lucky to be 6'3 flat at his low.
Modeus said on 18/Oct/14
what hapenned to the pic Rob?
Editor Rob
missing comma in code, fixed now thanks.
Balrog said on 1/Feb/14
weak 6'3''? The guy looks actually more 192cm next to Rob if he had less footwear!
avi said on 19/Jan/14
6'3 is enough maybe even a weak 6'3
Lo sgozzatore said on 1/Oct/13
Rob, you decided to give him 0.25?
Editor Rob
I think seeing him again I think he could measure that mark.
Lo sgozzatore said on 27/Jun/13
Its hard to say how tall he is from this pic, because he's leaning so much! But with Cabrera he does look a big 6'3 guy
