Midsomer Murders has just started and I looked up when I heard Simon Callow’s very distinctive voice. He has the voice of somebody much taller. He’s trying to chat up Tracy Brabin’s barmaid character!
5ft7.25 peak and 5ft6.5 now.

He looks a lot like Michael Gambon.

I have just watched a narration by Simon Callow of the Dickens classic 'A Christmas Carol', and although I had no plans to watch this, his rendition, with his variations of the characters' different voices, was completely entrancing.
He walked about, acting out each inimitable character so beautifully that I just couldn't drag myself away from the TV set. Of course, we could see his stature, and I put him at a slightly below average 5ft7.5. It turns out I was an inch out, but to turn a one-man show into something so compelling must have raised my estimate perhaps, unless it was the wearing of a long coat. I'd never really thought about it before!
5ft7.25 peak; 5ft6.5 now.

certainly looks at least 5'6.5" for his current height!

That's just so far out to be in the presence of Simon Callow, a true Golden Great! You lucky thing, Rob!
He can have 5ft7.25 for his peak height and 5ft6.5 for today's!

Looks like he wants to kill somebody on that photo.

He called out Orson Welles on his height but lies about his own, lol.

so are these celebs being reported on noon time height not night time height?
not morning, this is more like afternoon.

but rob i thought you listed g as 5'7? which i thought is plausible
well he's really 5ft 6.5 range at his low.

I don't know who he is but he looks well over 5'7 here, if Jim really is 6'1.5 range... Click Here
yeah he could look taller with Carrey, his posture in that film is up and down like a yoyo!
In the 90's Simon Looked like this
with 4 Weddings and a funeral cast. Today he looked similar to Big G about 5ft 6.5.
