I’m watching Stephen in The Company of Wolves, as introduced by Caroline Munro. He’ll have been 37, teetering on 38 in this 1984 film. He looks rather younger, and his full 5ft10.5. The late David Warner also stars.

No, it's 'even worse' than that; 🤭😂 Stephen was born in 1946, so he'll be three-quarters of a century on Halloween! 🧙♂️
Forest Whitaker described him as 'around 5ft10 with brown eyes' in the excellent film 'The Crying Game'. He was 45/46 when it was made in 1992, so it's very doubtful that he'll have lost height.
Stephen is getting 5ft10.5 because there's only one box, but if there were 2 boxes, he'd have 5ft10.25 for today's height and the aforementioned height for his prime. 😉👍

Even though I wrote his Birthday down, it still takes a few seconds before it sinks in that Stephen was born in 1947 every time I land on his page.

🎁🎂🕯️ Happy Birthday Stephen! 🕯️🎂🎁
Wishing Stephen a Very Happy 73rd Birthday! I must say, he doesn't look 73 AT ALL!
He does look 5ft10.5 though....

The film I was talking about is called 'Out of the Dark', just in case anybody is interested!

@ Rampage Clover - Hello Rampage! I have a growing collection of Stephen Rea films, and the film that really tipped me off about his acting abilities was 'The Crying Game'. This was a beautiful, but sad story which received its rewards for good reason, which you'll no doubt agree if you've seen it. Stephen starred with a lovely, soft-hearted Forrest Whittaker, who is very tall, and that certainly did influence how tall I thought Stephen Rea was
myself! Forrest towered over him!
He starred in a film I saw on the 'Horror' channel over the weekend and although he played a grandfather, I did take in that he was taller than I thought before. I don't think he's lost any height yet. He starred with Julia Styles, and was notably taller than her.
I agree with his 5ft10.5!

I thought he was 5ft8! He's usually cast alongside tall actors though so maybe that's why...

Rob, you forgot "n" at the end of the first word. You asked to correct, if this kind counts ;)
yes Giorgi, any bug or error like that, I appreciate a quick comment.

He is not 5ft8 im 5ft10.5 and he was a least my height.Also he looked much younger than 68 if I did not know his real age I would have taught he was about 50.

just met him im 5ft11.5 in shoes looked a bit taller than me. I would guess 6ft in shoes 5ft11 bear foot. He was in a city center carpark in dublin.he asked me if i knew where the paystations are.

So how tall IS this guy?? I really can't figure it out from his movies. I'm going with 5' 9.5". I think he wears shoe lifts to make him look taller when necessary.

Also surprised he is that tall. In the Crying Game next to Jaye Davidson (who is 5' 3") he looks no taller than 5'8. They see eye to eye when Jaye is wearing not-so-high heels

In Angie with Geena Davis he was almost as tall as her, no more than an inch under. He's at least 5'11", but as was said before he could have lost some height due to age causing him to stoop. Even though in V for Vendetta he towered over Natalie Portman.
MOF said on 21/Mar/06
He seems to have a lost a few inches, next to 5'10.875 Rupert Graves in V for Vendetta he looks three inches shorter, of course he was also hunching quite badly... seems age is catching up with him a little bit.

Be very surprised if he is really 5'10'' watched the film "MICHAEL COLLLINS" and when he is standing next to Liam Neeson who is 6'4'' he looks no taller then 5'8''
