I think his better posture is helping him more than any footwear advantage. If Rob were to stand as well as him, a weak 5'11 would definitely look at least closer.
Btw, Rob, you already gave up on the 1 photo a week plan? 🙂
Editor Rob
Yeah, I think every 2 weeks was more plausible.

@Rob with you I’d say he looked bang on 5’11. Take off a fraction for the shoe difference and 5’10.75. I notice he looks more under the mark than over. Posture maybe?
Editor Rob
10.75 to 11, that's pretty much a range he likely measures.
Jawilder said on 16/Apr/23
Just seen the YouTube video on him. I’ll change my guess to 5’10.75. Doubt he’s over there at a low.
Editor Rob
At worse a weak 5ft 11.

Not over 5'9". Frequently next to short people on Daisy Jones and the six
Tommybrad4d said on 9/Oct/22
Click Here how is this 10 cm difference? This is minimum 14 cm difference

Sam's top of the head is below Liam's eyes

Agreeing with @zion
Tommybrad4d said on 9/Oct/22
Just saw picture with Michael B Jordan, looks 2 inches shorter than him. I doubt he is 177 cm even
Zion said on 2/Sep/21
5’9” max. No debate.
Jake said on 28/Jul/21
Hey Rob, what do you think Sam’s eye level height is? Sort of 5’6 range? 5’6.5 maybe?
Editor Rob
more 5ft 6.5, very average eyelevel

Just saw Enola Holmes, and Henry Cavill really does have 2 inches on Sam Claflin. Not sure what's going on there. Definitely not an issue of footwear either.

That + looking back at some photos of Claflin with Liam Hemsworth, I think maybe its possible he could be 5'10.75...
Jason Reed said on 23/Sep/20
After watching Enola, He looks like he is 2 inches shorter than 6' 1/2 Henry Cavill. I would say 5'10 1/2 or 5'10 3/4. Either a weak 5'11 or a tall 5'10 guy.
Banaanas said on 2/Jan/19
5’10 or 178sm no more
PAN BERRY said on 23/Dec/18
I won’t disagree with Sam I would say he’s strong 5’11” at 180.5 cm
khaled taban said on 6/Aug/18
He is 5'10.75"
Jafars said on 26/Mar/18
He's gotta be 5'11. Only 2 inches between him and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in exactly the same footwear, and a solid 4 inches between him and Liam Hemsworth.
SAK said on 17/Sep/17
He is the listed 5'11". But he appears average or shortish on occasions. Something to do with his proportions. Can't quite put my finger on it.
Peter175 said on 7/Aug/17
If the girl next to him is near 5'8 and in heels he is definitely at least 5 ft 11
Matt said on 23/Jun/17
He appears to be at least 5'11, maybe 5'11.5 in my opinion, so I'm giving you a slightly higher estimate to push the average up.
Tyler said on 19/May/17
Ive met the guy. Im 5'10".. and he is bang on level with me.
Sammy Derrick said on 4/May/17
We'll too Short to play Thor,but the average height of a CELEBRITY SAM!!!
And Chris Hemsworth said "“There are certainly things I’ve wanted to go up for which I’ve been totally wrong for, physically,” he agrees. “And I normally lie about my height [6ft 3in] and say I’m shorter,” he confesses. “But it can go two ways. The brief for the audition for Thor said: must be over 6ft 1in, which I’d never seen before!”

I think 5'11.25" is his real actual height.
172.4cm guy said on 10/Mar/17
Based on the pics posted so far by @MD (Michael B. Jordan looks like he might have a shoe advantage that moves him into the 5-11 range) and @SAK (looks like a slightly above average in relation to Chris Hemsworth), I think Sam is in the 178-179cm range. If I could give a guess of 5-10.33 I would, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say 5-10.5.
TJE said on 6/Nov/16
Yeah this guy never looked 5'11. I'd argue 10.5 at the most.
MsKitty said on 20/Sep/16
5'10" or 5'11", one thing is certain...this man is quite simply GORGEOUS. That smile. Those dimples! A beautiful specimen, if I do say so myself. And yes, I agree with 5'11". 😊
MD said on 13/Jun/16
With 5'10.5" Michael B. Jordan:

Even when you factor in maybe thicker footwear on Michael, he can't be 5'11".
Ron said on 3/Jun/15
5'11 I reckon. He looks a bit like me in that he has a longish torso and thick thighs compared to his leg length. I claim 5'11 height, but I think if I'm being honest 5'10.5 may be more accurate. If I had legs that looked to match my torso Id be perhaps 6'1. It's not a big issue but it does make you appear a good inch shorter than you are - hence I usually build up about an inch into my shoe just so I don't look stocky.
I think this is what we're looking at with Sam, he looks to be a good 5'11, maybe 5'10.5, but when you see a full body pic it's easier to think he's shorter.
TJE said on 23/Jan/15
Looks more like 5'10.5-5'10.75 than a decent 5'11.
Jones said on 14/Sep/14
I think he looks more 5'10, looks like he'd be about the same height as Charlize Theron when she's not wearing heels. Still a good height tho.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Apr/14
5'10-5'11 looks OK. Surprising well built actually, a classic mesomorph. Doesn't look it here though.
chrisssss said on 17/Mar/14
Dude is not short, but i don't think he's 5'11, 5'10 maybe?
Emily said on 12/Dec/13
I do think too he has legs on the shorter side, but they're very thick, so that might make them look shorter than they actually are. Plus, he has a large head, so those are not good proportions in terms of appearing tall.
MD said on 11/Dec/13
I guess I'm the only one that doesn't see this "short legs" thing everyone is talking about. In the pictures I posted, the only thing I see is that Liam is wearing a tucked in shirt and he's tall, anyway, versus a guy who is visibly shorter wearing an untucked shirt that makes your waist look even lower next to a tall guy. I'd need to see some pictures with people of comparable height in similar clothing before I'd call his legs "short."
joak said on 10/Dec/13
looking at the pictures MD put up. he has short legs compared to his body (his body length is the same as Liam..) so that makes him look particularly short. but i say 5-10 or 5-11 works for him.
SGR said on 5/Dec/13
For me solid 5'10". Short Legs...
Balrog said on 1/Dec/13
Legit and solid 5'11'' guy, one of the few honest in Hollywood.
MD said on 15/Nov/13

The second on is definitely a better pic from which to judge height given that Liam is leaning in the first. Speaking of Sam, how tall is director Rupert Sanders? I've seen pictures of the two, and Rupert looks quite tall.
Jones said on 14/Sep/13
A 5'11 guy with a shortish build, kind of annoying lol, 5'11 usually doesn't give off a short impression to me.
Emily said on 7/Jul/13
Does he have a big head for his height? I've seen him next to Liam Hemsworth, who is at least 4 inches taller, but he seems to have a bigger head than Liam. Also could he be a fraction under 5'11? I can't see him as a full 5'11 after seeing some pictures. I'm a little over 5'11 myself and i think he doesn't look that close to me in height.
Roic said on 20/Jun/13
Struggles with 5ft 11in ! I M D B has him indeed at 6ft 2in, which is ridiculous. Doesn't even have the build of a 6 footer.

Right height for Sam. Looks exactly like it.
Tony said on 12/Nov/12
eh I dont know I think if he was really 5'11 he would have said he was six feet to get the part, because technically he would be six in footwear but ill post some pictures with chris hemsworth

looks more 5'10 range, but maybe hemsworth tends to wear large footwear plus his build makes him look larger. I still think 5'10 is closer to the truth

I'm 5'11 and I get the same thing from some kids at school.
