As listed

Robert knepper and Jodie Lynn o Keefe would edge her out
Same height as you rob, 173cm range 👍
slim 6'1 said on 21/Jan/21
174 probably a bit too much as Robert knepper would edge her out
slim 6'1 said on 15/Jan/21
This would make about 4 inches between her and Wentworth Miller
slim 6'1 said on 15/Jan/21
I take that back, the Gretchen actress edged her out.
173cm absolutely max
slim 6'1 said on 4/Jan/21
She’ll edge rob
Nik Ashton said on 3/Jan/21
@ rafael proulx - That’s very possible!
rafael proulx said on 1/Jan/21
She’s exactly you’re height if we count posture hair and footwear. Both of you would measure the same height I reckon
6'3 Julian said on 13/Sep/20
She looks like she’s about to yell at someone “He’s mine, back off!”
Nik said on 3/May/20
@ Rob - How thick is her hair compared to yours?
Editor Rob
Likely a small fraction more at crown.
Tall Sam said on 30/Apr/20
Listed fairly accurately I think, can pass for 5'9" range not infrequently on screen with a little strong footwear.
JohnMoore-162cm said on 15/Mar/20
5ft8 1/4 in person I'd say
Nik said on 6/Oct/19
She could be Rob's height twin!
Lazar99 said on 9/Aug/19
5ft8 1/4 is a better listing.
Csimpson6ft said on 4/Aug/19
Since Rob has 0.3 inch more footwear then id say she's bang on 174cm, this listing is perfectly fine imo.
Nik said on 9/Jun/19
The above photograph is so cool!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/May/19
@Nik Didn't Rob mention she had 0.3 inch less footwear above? Shes everything over 173cm but maybe fraction under 174cm.
Nik said on 21/Mar/19
I am not convinced that she is taller than Rob!
Peter 180cm said on 14/Jan/19
About 174cm.
Nik said on 8/Nov/18
@ Philip McMullin - 😂😂😂

The middle word in your sentence made me LLL!
Philip McMullin said on 14/Oct/18
Shes a frigging perfect woman!!
Theboyyy2 said on 13/Jul/18
@Rob do you think she's actually taller than you? Yeah, you have a 0.3 inch thicker footwear here, but you're leaning a bit too, while she seems like she's having a pretty straight posture
Editor Rob
5ft 8.25 to 8.5 is a likely range I'd say from in person.
khaled taban said on 2/Jul/18
Around 174cm mark
Intevel said on 27/Jun/18
Rob if you drew a line for this photo, who would win?
Editor Rob
She is a few mm's shorter in this photo although I didn't feel she looked much different from myself just looking from my perspective of how 5ft 8.25 looks.
Natalie_M said on 2/Jun/18
Sarah is consistently listed as a rounded up 5ft9 and this picture of her with Rob proves her height claim is honest. Sarah was fab at Prisonbreak, BTW.. Beautiful lady and unpretentious.
Nik said on 24/May/18
Sarah is about Rob's height!
Danny camello said on 11/Jan/18
She can dwarf me for sure at 5'7"
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 30/Oct/17

Rob said that he had 0.3" more footwear than her, can you not read?
KaumoloKo said on 7/Oct/17
I think she's 5'6.7" - 5'7.5". In this photo she looks 5'8" exactly, but you claimed she had footwear with a few inches to it.
Junior said on 10/Aug/17
172cm even she had 0.3 less footwear
Intevel said on 3/Aug/17
Rob, she doesn't seem taller than you. Do you think maybe we should boost up your height? You said 5 ft 8 1/8 is your low. So maybe you should round up a little more to 5 ft 8.25. Because whenever you are with a 5 ft 8 celeb, you seem to edge them out. Whenever you're with a 5 ft 8.5 celeb, you don't see shorter than them.
Editor Rob
she could be 5ft 8.25 range, I wouldn't rule that out.
Andrea said on 25/Jun/17
"Editor Rob: this girl reminded me of the challenger who was identical height to myself..."
Do you mean before or after looking at her footwear, Rob?
Editor Rob
World Citizen said on 31/May/17
Listing seems spot on, looks exactly the same height as you with that footwear disadvantage.
Shredder said on 21/Apr/17
I can see 5'8.25 but no less
berta said on 10/Apr/17
is she loosing a little height in this photo? Looks barely 172 in it. Overall in tv and movies i think she looks like a 174 lady. that could be 3 -4 cmm under it. her posture is good that should make her looks 175 if she was a stron g174, but she doesnt. about 173,5 is fine for her
Editor Rob
well she seemed shorter than Amanda tapping that day, so anywhere in 173-4 range is likely.
Shredder said on 5/Apr/17
She looks Rob's had with less footwear , 5'8.25 at least
S.J.H said on 3/Apr/17
If shes 5'8.5 then rob will easily be 5'9.25 and for the fans will say she is 5'9 lol
Editor Rob
this girl reminded me of the challenger who was identical height to myself...
Sean73 said on 26/Feb/17
I think your spot on Rob with 5ft 8.5in. And as far as that "other" sean73 comment down below, just ignore it. Their was an evil Sean and I killed him. Threw him into a twister. R.I.P Bill Paxton. 61 is way too young.
J.Lee said on 30/Dec/16
Rob, I'm not sure she looks .5 inches taller than you. In this photo, you look .3 inches taller, so with a .3 inch advantage I'd say she is even with you at most.
Hector said on 1/Sep/15
She looked like she was the same height as Robert Knepper in Prison Break, so I would say she's 5'8.5 with normal shoes on, like him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/15
Rob, wgo looked taller Sarah or Jodie Lynn?
Editor Rob
to be fair, I think Sarah in person has a better posture than O'Keefe, but they might be very close in reality if measuring.
JC said on 18/Sep/14
She looks your height man. You might even be a little taller. Maybe she's a flat 5'8. Plus there's only a quarter inch difference. Aren't you a little over 5'8 like 5'8 1/4?
Editor Rob
my low is 5ft 8 1/8th, which at night time I am more likely to be, I think this was a 7-8pm photo.
Moke said on 19/Aug/14
Beautiful woman. Exact the same height as Rob.
Andrea said on 19/Aug/14
How much taller you think he looks with Sarah, without considering the shoes? I'd say there is at least 2.5-3 inches from that small pic... Take off 0.6-0.7 inches for the shoes and, if he is a 5'10 flat guy, she looks 5'7.5-5'8... Although i do think she would measure between 5'8 and 5'8.5!!
Editor Rob
about 2.5in I think.

To show how different positions with a photographer can change things, look at the same guy with Maryse. That's a 5ft 10 and other is 5ft 11!

Of course 5ft 11 guy is actually photographer himself and the person who took photographers pic is standing more central rather than standing to the left of the spotlight lamp (which the main photographer was doing with maryse and others in that photozone over the weekend...)
Andrea said on 19/Aug/14
Yeah, Rob... That was her first listing and i said she was no more than that ;)
And there were guys who even try to say 5'9.5... How tall is that guy? 5'10.5 range?
Editor Rob
a 5ft 10 guy
176,2Tunman said on 19/Aug/14
Thanks,Rob.174 sounds more true,still O'keefe should be downgraded by a fraction and all PB characters will be bang on I think.
Ian said on 18/Aug/14
More like 5'8 flat pal
176,2Tunman said on 18/Aug/14
Rob,she looks even 1cm shorter than you here but maybe she's not in her best posture.174 or 5'8.5"is very possible but 175 is unlikely,you said yourself Amanda Tapping would be taller and that you don't see her at 5'9.I think the general consensus is definitely right at 174.
Editor Rob
175 was an optimistic entry ;)

Here is a guy in normal shoes with both sarah and about 0.6-0.7in more than sarah and about 0.7ish less than casper. Click Here
mike said on 18/Aug/14
spot on! at worst 174 and 176 out of bed.
shaunfiveten said on 17/Aug/14
I honestly think she has no more than .50 inches on you, I mean the difference between you and her is barely visible.
J.Lee said on 16/Aug/14
Rob you have a longer head than hers and your eyes are a little higher than hers. I have no idea how she could be .75 inches taller than you, even with the .3 inches advantage you have. Looks 5 ft 8 flat to me.
Balrog said on 16/Aug/14
Judging by this pic she looks a legit 174cm. 5'8.5"
the shredder said on 16/Aug/14
Rob , 5'8.5 for her Makes Jodi Lyn O'Keefe 5'8 .
Editor Rob
I know she could appear taller in prison break, but in person Sarah looked barely much different, I think 174 or 5 is possible, but Jodi's posture is generally not as good.
Reese said on 15/Aug/14
174 cm on the nose seems spot on for her.
Gorgeous tall woman.
J.Lee said on 15/Aug/14
Rob this photo confuses me a lot. You clearly are at least a little taller than her in this picture. So if you only had .3 inches in advantage, how could she still be .75 inches taller than you? That would mean that she is a half inch taller than you even in this pic?
Editor Rob
as I say there is a chance she is 174
Alex 6'0 said on 14/Aug/14
5'8 1/8 Rob make her barely 5'8.5 I think. I could even say 5'8 3/8 she may measure.
Dmeyer said on 14/Aug/14
Rob you are near 5'8.25 do you think she could be 0.5in more than you 5'8.75
Editor Rob
at this time (like 8pm) I'd be 5ft 8 1/8th, it is 50/50 on 174 or 5
Dmeyer said on 13/Aug/14
She looks 0.2in shorter but has 0.3in léss shoes so 5'8.1 her 5'8.25 , rob do you realy think she is more than 0.25in taller than you to me she looks similar to you
lelman said on 13/Aug/14
With the footwear advantage you're identical in height, so 175cm fits.
Alex 6'0 said on 13/Aug/14
174cm on the nose seems spot on I think
Editor Rob
174 is a good chance.
the shredder said on 13/Aug/14
she was taller than Jodi that Rob has. This listing looks right , jodi is 5'8 .
Hypado said on 12/Aug/14
Sarah Wayne Callies's height is 5ft 8.75in (175 cm)

Tall Girl.
Phantom said on 12/Aug/14
Is she crouching down here?
Alex 6'0 said on 12/Aug/14
Rob, it seems if you take away the 1/4 inch footwear she would only edge you out by 1/4 inch if even.
Alex 6'0 said on 12/Aug/14
In this pic I would say 5'8.5 taking the slight footwear into account.
the shredder said on 12/Aug/14
Weak 5'9 , taller than Jodi . Both beautiful.
Kostas said on 12/Aug/14
You look the same height here. 1.74 will be closer to the truth.
Andrea said on 12/Aug/14
Yep, you finally posted this picture :)
5'8.75 tops, the previous listing was closer (5'8.5), though...
Sam said on 12/Aug/14
Considering posture and a slight footwear advantage, I could see up to a half-inch over Rob but they look very similar height in the photo. Not quite 5'9".
teej said on 1/Jan/14
In prison break 6'0.75 micheal scofield looked pretty much 3 inches taller than her. So I would say she's 5'9 174cm at least
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Dec/13
I knew 5ft9 was closer. Looked a bit taller than Jodi Lynn and more attractive...
Lo sgozzatore said on 19/Nov/13
Rob, has she shoe disadvantage? She doesnt look taller than you!
Editor Rob
I haven't found a picture of hers to confirm yet, but they looked less than mine, I'd go with about 0.3in less.
Lorne said on 13/Oct/13
I actually think she looks 5ft9, that was my guess just seeing her oB Walking Dead, she looks very tall, since the cast isn't that big!
Lo sgozzatore said on 22/Jun/13
174 was good enough, noway she's 5'9.5, SAK
SAK said on 28/Feb/13
5f9 could be 5f9.5.
Silent d said on 5/Dec/12
She is really skinny in the show but she is 174cm. Still beautiful!
Johnnyfive said on 17/Oct/12
Gives a 5'10-5'11 impression on The Walking Dead
Silent d said on 12/Oct/12
5 foot 8.5.
Ras said on 6/Feb/12
[Editor Rob: he could appear be in the 6ft 5 range if she has an inch advantage, or more if bigger, just from the short clip.]

So what's the least and most you would give to him?
Editor Rob
6ft 5-5.5 could be possible, but you'd need to see more with other people I guess.
Ras said on 26/Jan/12
how tall do you guys think is the guy right beside her here?

Click Here

Rob do you agree he is 6'4.5" if she's 5'8.5"? it looks like a legit 8 inch difference right there (OF COURSE bearing in mind she's in heels, so she's got footwear advantage).
Editor Rob
he could appear be in the 6ft 5 range if she has an inch advantage, or more if bigger, just from the short clip.
cc said on 8/Jan/12
easily 5 ft 8
sean73 said on 20/Oct/11
No offence guys but u don`t know a thing about correct height guesstimates!she is 5-8.5 u guys are blind!I also think she could pull off being WonderWoman.
lordrandall91 said on 7/Jun/11
In prison break she looks pretty tall! And she's not wearing heels most of the time... 173-174 is right! ;)
Walking dead fan said on 10/Apr/11
She is 1.66, she use heels in all the walking dead chapters ( or big boots) in a part of the serie she appears next to rick grimes (character name/ he is 1.76) without boots or anything, he is about 10cm taller than her
niro said on 27/Oct/10
i think she always use heels....
so she looks 5'9" with her heels..
but in fact she is not more than 5'4"
eres E said on 24/May/09
no 5'8.5 is more than this. she looks a bit taller than 174, and i'm sure she is too.
B said on 16/Feb/09
was next to hear boarding the same airplane flight... height seems right
adam said on 25/Dec/08
She is tall, sure not more than the listed height here? And yes, very good-looking.
jim12 said on 16/Dec/08
does anyone know how tall stacy haiduk is (lisa tabek), she looked about the same height as sarah in heels (pretty sure sarah was in flats) in the toilets, but she looked a bit taller than gretchen (jodi lyn o'keefe) when they were both in heels
DMEYER said on 7/Oct/08
174 fits her
Beyo_86 said on 8/May/08
she looks 173-175 cm tall.
