I totally agree with you!

I noticed Michael Harney isn't listed. My guess for him since he has a deceptive height (i.e. is he tall or average?) which in the case of men means that he's in the 1.80m-83 range). What you think?
Editor Rob: he doesn't look under 5ft 11, could have been 6ft and shrunk a bit..

She can't be 5'8 if zac efron is 5'8 and in the picture of them together she is taller and is wearing large heels.

She can definitely pull off 5'8 at times, but i wouldn't call her "a solid 5'8"... Just look at her with Laura Prepon (who isn't 5'10 but more a solid 5'9, like 5'9.25-5'9.5) or that 5'11 girl! She looks more a weak 5'8 with them!
5'7.75 range would be a better listing, not that much under 5'8 though ;)

she looks a solid 5'8 to me. there is one episode last season she was at least 4 inches taller than kate mulgrew.

Taylor himself is a weak 5'8... 5'7.75 would be a fairer listing! And, as far as i remember, that Ruby girl looked at least 1-1.5 inches shorter than her in OITNB, so she probably isn't over 5'6.5!

Rob how tall do you think ruby rose from OITNB is? She looks a good few inches shorter than Taylor and 4 inches taller than Ellen page yet gets listed 5'7 I'm thinking more 5'5
[Editor Rob: I don't know, look Here
I'm sure she claimed similar height to taylor does, although she may well be at most 5ft 7 and at times look 5ft 6?]

While whe made 5-8 Zac Efron look like a child so my guess would be 5-10

Just started watching it too, Sam... Yeah, she looks quite tall on the show, she can look 1.5-2 inche shorter than Laura Prepon... 5'8 seems a fine listing but she can look under with a girl like Laverne Cox! Rob, do you think she looks only 3 inches shorter than her? Just google them...
[Editor Rob: at times she can look 172 range]

Rob, probably you should list in her credits: Piper Chapman in Orange is the New Black...just starting watching it, I truly appreciate how they got the obligatory women in prison nude scene out of the way the very first scene ;=)
Yeah, she looks pretty towering in some scenes but she is not quite as tall as Laura Prepon in their scenes together.

I think she's closer to 5'9 even, she looks huge compared to most of the girl inmates on OITNB.

My favorite actress--she is outstanding as Piper Chapman on ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. Looking forward to seeing her shine in the beginning of a great career.
5'8" is a minimum for her. In OITNB, she only looks 1" shorter than Laura Prepon--who is supposedly 5'10", but I'm thinking Laura is more 5'9" than 5'10".
In THE LUCKY ONE, she is taller than Efron in flats--and despite his footwear advantage. And NO--Efron is nowhere near 5'10" as he claims.
5'8" minimum for her.
P.S.- "I love you, Alex. I love you, and I f-cking hate you."--Piper Chapman.

@ayaan 5'8" for her is probably correct. She and Efron looked about the same height in The Lucky One, and at times she edged him out a little. He was trying to stand up straight in big boots that entire movie too. He may even be 5'6.5" or 5'7"

either 5'8 is too short for her or 5'10 is too long for efron
