I legit thinks she could be 5'4 or a bit under but over 5'3 flat. She has made 5'7.5 Don Cheadle look average and she had 2.5 or 3 inch heels putting her at 5'6 or a weak 5'7 so she's not quite 5'4. And Bryshere Gray is like 5'9 with some Timberlands on and she looks atleast 2 or 3 inches when in some 3 or 4 heels so yes 5'7 in some tall heels she is almost 5'4

I was going through the cast of Person of Interest yesterday and I forgot to comment on Taraji's page! Anyway, I think that she is about 5'4" or 5'4.5" based on cast pics: Click Here . They also gave her height as 5'5" on POI yesterday.

Looked slightly taller than 5'-7" Julie Andrews in "The Sound of Music", but the Baroness probably wore more sophisticated shoes than the Governess.
