He looks more 5'5.5-5'5.75 than the full 5'6, 5'5.75 might be ok.

He's got a pretty big head for his height. That does look like a 2-inch difference though.

From eyeballing the thumbnail I thought 5'6". Spot on, this is my exact vote

5'6" is fine

Not 5'5 flat but he doesn't look 5'6.

@Andre wow, cool story, he seems like a good man. Would like to see what Rob thinks of his height though; maybe Simon just accepted the fact that he is below average and didn't ever care about his height, making him think to be shorter than he actually is.
5ft 5 flat? I'd be surprised as he looked taller, but then you can always wear a lift for extra height! Look at him with John Simm

I happened to know the actor personally, having worked with him on stage, and can confirm that he himself says he's almost five-five. When I told him that he is listed as five-six on the net, he smiled and replied that he has never been five-six, and may be shrinking.

Listing seems spot on.

I think he may have shrank based on his age.
