Yeah he was at the most 188cm never the avreagera guess . 187-187,5 peak and 186 today
Importer said on 26/Jul/19
I like how the average guess is way off. In Dalton's favor of course.
Alex 6'3.25 said on 4/Jul/19
He always looked 186 or 187 cm max
Joel Masterman said on 4/Jun/19
looks tall in both of the bond films he did I think Dalton, lazenby and connery could have been a strong 6"2.

Rob, why do not you still decide on 6'1.75" for the peak height of Dalton? In 1991, Dalton looked only one inch shortet than Billy Campbell:

Rob, you met Campbell personally and you said that even 6'3.5" is possible for him, but the difference between him and Dalton didn't look big. It's difficult to judge the height of Jennifer Connely, but she probably wore heels. Dalton probably hasn't lost any height to the age of 61, because next to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in 2007 he still looked around 6'2" here are more photos:

Dalton in 1988 met Camille Coduri and Janet McTeer:

Camille is the next person you met personally next to which Dalton could look like around 6'2". Here's a photo of Dalton alongside Marg Helgenberger and Nigel Havers from 1994:

Lazenby is the next person you met in person. Rob, after all I've seen, I really doubt that the peak height Dalton was less than 6'1.75" and I believe that Dalton would easily defeat someone like Will Smith. Rob, is it enough to you give him a peak height of 6'1.75"?
Editor Rob
Well the part from the agent about 6ft 1.75 could be possible and he rounded down to 6ft 1 rather than up to 6ft 2 for acting...
Aad said on 18/Mar/19
Never ever commented in my life before, long time lurker though. At least 188 cm at his peak, at least!

His current peak height of 186.7 cm is ridiculous.

The tallest of all the Bonds out there.
Rory said on 16/Mar/19
6ft1 and 5/8ths peak could be spot on for him, a decent 187cm. 6ft1 today. I don't trust those alleged tailor measurements as I don't believe Connery was 6ft1.5, he looked a proper 6ft2, although all the other listings sound plausible enough give or take.
Neelasish Send Roy said on 15/Mar/19
I am listing all James Bond actors height According to James Bond tailor
1)Timothy Dalton 6'2"(188cm) without shoes
2)Sean Connery 6'1.5"(187cm) without shoes
3)George Lazenby 6'1.5(187cm) without shoes
4)Roger Moore 6'1"(185cm) without shoes
5)Pierce Brosnan 6'1"(185cm) without shoes
6)Daniel Craig 5'10"(178cm) without shoes
Is anyone's height is wrong,Rob?
Editor Rob
If the tailor measured it would be roughly accurate, but I've never actually read a newspaper article about that...only some speculation.
Canson said on 5/Mar/19
Conan is not a legit 6’4”. Too many legit 6’4”s come on his show and edge him

From a Conan O'Brien episode, 1999: Click Here. Conan is a legit 6'4, so Dalton could not have been anything less than 6'2 at peak.
Jtm said on 26/Feb/19
i actually thought he was taller than O'Toole in the lion in winter but then again i think O'Toole was closer to 6'1.
Jug said on 26/Feb/19
I remember reading Bond official tailors measured him at 6'2. He was essentially eye-to-eye with O'Toole in The Lion in Winter, and based on pictures of him with Brosnan, I really think 6'2 for a peak heigh is fair. He may be 6'1 now, but a pretty solid 6'2 at peak. This listing is too low, sorry.
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Jan/19
How old must Tim be to have starred in 'The Lion in Winter'?

I saw it at the pictures and I went to sleep! I think I was 14! 😴

Timmy can have 6ft2.5 for his peak height and 6ft1.25 for his height today. I don't have the vaguest idea why I said that, as I haven't had a good viewing of him for, well.....ages! His face is familiar though! 😉👌
Mateusz said on 9/Dec/18
He looks 6 ft to me , maybe 6 and a half in his peak
Gracian said on 5/Dec/18
Thank you Rob for this upgrade of his current height, but I feel that his peak height also needs an upgrade. In the movie "Hot Fuzz" from 2007, he still looked like 6'2" alongside Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, just like at the premiere of the movie, here are their photos from the premiere of" Hot Fuzz":

After everything I've seen, I just do not think that Dalton would be less than 6'1.75" in his peak height. Please Rob, give him this sign at least.
Editor Rob
6ft 1.75 is still possible, although he is one actor who seemed to only want to be known as 6ft 1.
Gracian said on 4/Dec/18
Rob, do not take offense at me for what I say, but I feel that you are a bit unfair to Dalton. I'm surprised you listed him so low! Only 3-4 years ago he looked at least 3 cm taller than Rory Kinnear and only an inch shorter than Josh Hartnett, they sometimes even had an advantage of shoes over him. It is difficult to judge, however, Eve Green, because the pictures usually do not show her shoes but she probably wore heels. Here are the pictures from 2014 and 2015:

I know that some time ago Dalton was on the peak height 6'1.75" and current height flat 6'1" and even that looked a bit low estimates for him. I also looked at him in the 80's and 90's and he really looked like 6'2" or even 6'2.25". In the movie "License to kill", Dalton looked taller than Robert Davi and Benicio Del Toro. Here are the pictures:

Rob, I do not know what made you give Dalton peak height 6'1.5" and current height 6'0.75" but this list just looks too low for him. I will again point out that I would like to be fair in assessing the height from Dalton and this comment is no provocation. Rob, I hope you'll answer me.
Editor Rob
Well 6ft 1 today is probably more reasonable, I can still see the chance of 1.75 as it came from an enquiry from the agent.
Ian555 said on 15/Nov/18
Rob everyone in the comments seems to agree Dalton was 6’ 2” peak. In photos of him with 6’ 1” Pierce Brosnan he looks about 6’ 2”.
Agent Orange said on 28/Oct/18
My favourite Bond. Just finished watching the Living Daylights and his peak was def 6’2👍. Today believe he is 6’1!
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 3/Sep/18
I wonder where that claim of him being "At a full 6'2, he is the tallest James Bond actor". Rob, do you think that's internet gossip?? What do you think.
Editor Rob
I don't know, but the fact the journalist went to his publicist and got back between 6ft 1 and 2 I think is probably quite telling.
Lisa Masterman said on 10/Jun/18
Tall slim guy somehow listed as being the tallest bond Peak height 189cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/18
I don't agree with this listing either. Based on what I've seen of him recently I'm voting 6ft1 today and 6ft2 peak (with 6ft1¾ at worst). He's in his 70s and has probably lost an inch but still looks 6ft1 range. I also saw a bit of Hot Fuzz and he still looked near 6ft2 w/h Simon Pegg.
kurt franklin said on 13/May/18
Met him when I was about 20 years old. I am 5'8"-5'9" and he towered over me. I was in inch heals. I believe he was in sandals. He seemed over 6'2". Big and broad. This would have been around 2002.
berta said on 26/Apr/18
dont udnerstand how the average guess can be 189 :O peak i cant see him shorter than 187-187,5 and could look the full 6 foot 2 half of the time. today i think he still is the ful 6 foot 1. this guy looked half inch taller than roger moore and pierce brosnan
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/18
I think he's still 6ft1 and arguably 6ft2 peak
Z185 said on 14/Jan/18
I agree with you there Bugsy, Dalton with moore and brosnan shows much more of a difference than either of them and connery - where there is little to no difference. Though I think he was only a true 188, not 189...
King of the hill 91 said on 6/Jan/18
He is billed i think 189cm peak maybe he doesn't like to say his height like chris hensworth brother
5'10 lad said on 1/Jan/18
This guy was an easy 6’2 Rob you shouldn’t pay too much attention to the spotlight casting as solid evidence. It’s not as reliable for 6’ plus actors from what I’ve seen. You don’t upgrade them for inflating so don’t downgrade them for deflating unless they look it I feel. Dalton never looked this low
Richard said on 25/Dec/17
Dalton was 6'3" but he is closer to 6'2" now.
Bugsy said on 12/Nov/17
It was officially said at some point (way before these new movies, possibly before the Brosnan ones even) that Dalton was the TALLEST Bond actor. The suit tailors supposedly measured him at 6'2". Connery was 6'1.5", Moore 6'0.5" and Lazenby I don't remember being mentioned at all in that article.

Makes perfect sense to me. From everything I have seen, Dalton's taller than Connery.
Junior said on 30/Oct/17
Timothy Dalton did not claim that he is only 6'1 but he just get listed and described at both 6'1-6'2 range.
berta said on 17/Oct/17
to me he was strong 187 guy peak. close to 188 and today weak 186. the average guess seems a little high peak
177cm said on 15/Oct/17
Rob spotlight casting heights prove nothing. You said yourself Christopher Lee was at 6'3 for one point. Dalton was an easy 6'2. Edged out guys like Davi and benicio del Toro. Had an inch on peak brosnan if you look at them together. 6'2 bare minimum maybe even 6'2.25
Editor Rob:
a small proportion of actors/actresses will have rounded down or dropped 1/2 or 3/4 from their height. Compared to the percentage which are honest or the percentage inflating their heights, it's minuscule.

I am certainly going to document for posterity a lot of original claims because that is what the actor was willing to be associated with. Also it gives an insight into the past.

Is Dalton dishonest and claiming a lower height, as much as 1.25 inches? I don't know.

As for Lee, I will get round to taking a snap showing he did claim 6ft 3 but actually revised it and changed it to 6ft 4 in later decades.

Dalton never did though, he seemed to like being listed at 6ft 1 whereas Moore liked to be inflated to 6ft 2.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/May/17
Connery: 190.6cm/188.6cm
Lazenby: 189.9cm/187.9cm
Moore: 188.2cm/186.2cm
Dalton: 189.5cm/187.5cm
Brosnan: 188.8cm/186.8cm
Craig: 180.7cm/178.7cm


Don't try to fight me on this one...

If that's morning/night peak, then I see no reason to fight.

But could you be just a little more accurate(i.e. rounding to the hundredth of a centimeter instead of merely the tenth)? ;P
Rory said on 30/Sep/17
It seems strange though for someone playing the role of Bond, a part which has historically had a criteria of hiring tall actors, to round down their height. Surely if you were 6ft1.5-75 area you'd be much much more likely to round up to 6ft2 than down to 6ft1. I wonder though with those spotlight pages do they do fractions or just whole numbers.
Editor Rob: yes, they do fractions, 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4.

The only big-name actor I can remember who seemed to round down was an early Christopher Lee, who had a meagre 6ft 3 inches at one point...
Rory said on 30/Sep/17
He did look near 6ft2 though with Billy Campbell in the early 90s. I thought Campbell at 6'3.25 and Dalton at 6'1.75 looked spot on. Not quite 2 inches between them but more than 1 inch. 6'1.5 is the lowest I'd argue, it's what he might measure after a long day on the Bond set but I still think 1.75 in the afternoon is fair.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/17
This can't be right.
Editor Rob:
In their peak spotlight listings (approved by the actor themselves), Timothy dalton and Pierce BOTH in the 1980's had 6ft 1 flat, Roger Moore had 6ft 2...

The question is, whether the 6ft 1 flat is the truth or if they said to drop fractions.

But the info is out there for anybody now - both Pierce and Timothy both claimed 6ft 1 flat in the 80's...
Adijos said on 2/Sep/17
I agree with the comment saying 189 cm at the top of Dalton! Definitely Rob, you keep him too low! For example, in the "Licence to kill" Timothy looked higher than Benicio Del Toro, in addition to Benicio in the film had thicker hair and thicker shoes! Click Here
In Timothy's "Penny Dreadful" looks less than Josh Hartnett! When it comes to Dalton's peak, I think it's closer to 189 cm than 187 cm. Today I see it at least a quarter inch above the flat 6'1". In my opinion, the list should look like, the peak 6'2.25", now 6'1.5" or 6'1.25". I think Rob should update Dalton's height!
Heyward said on 28/Aug/17
Strong 188-189cm guy even in his early forties when he was in The living Daylights and License to Kill James Bond he was a strong 6"2 man.
King of the hill 91 said on 25/Aug/17
He is titled the tallest bond for a reason he is 189cm peak if connery is 188cm or 187cm
Bugsy said on 23/Aug/17
Robert Davi is not even over 6 ft (might have been a hair over it when he was younger) as evidenced by the photo on this site, so that comparison alone proves nothing. (Wasn't Davi also in Stargate Atlantis? He looked NOTHING like several inches taller than whatshisface... Flanagan? And that guy is about 5'10", 5'11".)

Fortunately there are other reference points. Dalton, in the 80's, was clearly taller than Roger Moore for one thing. I've been meaning to watch Licence to Kill again for some time now, that should give me some material for a decent guess.
177cm said on 20/Aug/17
Edged out Robert Davi in license to kill. Strong 188cm peak
jamie Warburton said on 7/Aug/17
Strong 189cm peak
Zach said on 31/Jul/17
Rob do you think he was the one of the tallest James Bond's in his peak although he looks 6"2 could he edge out a guy like Connery in his youth?
Editor Rob: lazenby/dalton/connery all could arguably look 188 or 187 at their peak.
Zach said on 30/Jul/17
Looked 6"2.5 in his prime not a short guy but whether he could edge out a guy like Connery is the real Question. However Dalton looks 6"1 sometimes Connery always gives the impression of 6"2+.
King of the hill 91 said on 21/Jul/17
A strong 189cm peak he is titled the tallest bond for a reason he should done more bond maybe one o r two more at least for your eyes only a view to a kill licence revoked like planned and golden eye at least
Jug said on 12/Jul/17
On an old episode of Conan O'Brien, Dalton easily looked 6'2 next to Conan when they shook hands. It's impossible for anyone under 6'2 to look almost the same height as a real 6'4 guy. This was around 2000. In pictures with Brosnan, Dalton always looked a good inch taller. He was a strong 6'2 at peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/May/17
I think he still might be 186-187cm today.
Willes188 said on 19/May/17
That's a very good estimate Rampage
berta said on 19/May/17
Rampage i think you are extramely close with those guesses. my guess is about this:,2
connery 188,4
Lazenby (dont really know but) 187,6
Moore 186,2
Dalton 187,9
Brosnan 186,4
Craig 178,2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/May/17
Connery: 190.6cm/188.6cm
Lazenby: 189.9cm/187.9cm
Moore: 188.2cm/186.2cm
Dalton: 189.5cm/187.5cm
Brosnan: 188.8cm/186.8cm
Craig: 180.7cm/178.7cm


Don't try to fight me on this one...

this guy is still about 186 cm tall and over 70 he is like 1 inch shorter than 190 cm josh hartnett. i think he was 188 at peak ore 2 mm under and now 186,2 .
Willes189 said on 13/Feb/17
Both Lazenby & Connery is taller, although Lazenby not by more then 0.5cm
berta said on 29/Jan/17
i dont really know if the publicist really knew his exact height. i think that claim is like asking someone of us who have just seen him. To me he looked like the next talles bond after sean connery. connery just above 6 foot 2 and timothy 6 foot 2. i really think he could look it. even today he looks atleast 186 in my eyes. just a little shorter than 190 hartnet
Wiles189 said on 28/Jan/17
James Bond actors (Prime)


Sean Connery 188.5-189cm (measured at 188.9-189cm)

George Lazenby 187.8-188.1cm (+ - 2mm)

Timothy Dalton 187.6cm (+ - 2mm)

Pierce Brosnan 186.6-187.1cm (+ - 2mm)

Roger Moore 186.75cm (+ - 2mm)


Like Rampage said, it's almost impossible to notice any difference between Moore & Brosnan (Prime), but i think that Brosnan would have him by 0.1-0.5mm
Josh Jeffords said on 6/Nov/16
Very apparently tall man looked 6 2 most times fairly lanky.
Could have been tallest bond never saw Connery near him.
They gave a similar presence on screen Connery stronger dalton lighter faster.
He was later much more versatile doing dramas and comedy well.
King of the hill 91 said on 3/Nov/16
He is meant to be the tallest bond one page from the dresser said in a page i found he claimed dalton was 6 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/16
Yeah, I'd definitely put Connery at the top, looking at his other work. Dalton and Lazenby would probably have edged out Brosnan and Moore (who you may have had a flip a coin over)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Sep/16
Rob, at peak who do you think would have been tallest out of Brosnan, Dalton and Moore?
Editor Rob: really at times Lazenby, Dalton both could be a bit shy of 6ft 2, Connery I thought is the more legit 6ft 2...
Dave said on 26/Jul/16
He isn't shorter than Brosnon. If Timothy is 6'1" then Brosnon is 6'0" Timothy was always taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Apr/16
Does he really look only 6ft1 today?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/16
I think Connery was the tallest...
Z188 said on 10/Feb/16
On Timothy's imdb its states he is the tallest bond to date according to the bond tailors , it then lists the others barefoot heights at either 6'1 or 6'1.5. (obviously not including craig).. In light of photos with brosnan and moore and lazenby, and moore/brosnan with connery, I'm inclined to believe these values too.
Alex said on 31/Jan/16
Are you sure he's tall 185 cm? In Penny Dreadful is tall almost like Josh Hartnett, that should be a strong 190 cm, and they wear almost the same footwear, I guess about 2 cm / 2.5 cm.
Z187 said on 29/Jan/16
Looked near 6'3 in shoes, the tallest bond to date.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jan/16
He didn't look any less than 6ft2 in either Bond movie. In Flash Gordon he looked 1in shorter than Sam Jones.

"Peak height was 6ft 2in (187.96cm)"
OddMan said on 3/Jan/16
He didn't really look much shorter than they guy who played Flash Gordon and who is listed as having been 191cm IIRC.

On the other hand, he never seemed appeared 187/188cm tall in his movies, perhaps because his body build is neither broad-shouldered/big nor skinny... He's that medium-framed guy. I'd guess him as 184cm if i didn't know better!
Rojina said on 3/Nov/15
He doesn't seem this tall in The Living Daylights. Still as handsome as ever!
Tom said on 27/Sep/15
Rob, how about adding a page for Andreas Wisniewski, who played the killer in The Living Daylights?
Chase Witherspoon said on 2/Aug/15
I always assumed Mr Dalton appeared the tallest Bond owing to his epic bouffant (that would make Brosnan blush and be Connery's envy). If his hair is wind-blown or quaffed, then I'm seeing a legitimate 6'2"/188cm 007.. under-rated too, imo
J Blaze said on 20/Jul/15
I walked past him on the street and I'm 6'2. He was about a inch shorter than me. I'd put him at a solid 6'1. This was about a year ago, so maybe he's shrunk a bit with age.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jun/15
A prime Connery would have edged Dalton, IMO.
Arch Stanton said on 26/May/15
Pretty short LOL? WTF? Perhaps the reason he didn't look tall in the film was because most of the male cast were 6 ft 2 themselves too.
James said on 25/May/15
He looked pretty short in Licence To Kill. For an allegedly, 6'2" guy, many other actors reached his height or were taller.
Mario said on 14/Jan/15
Watched the first two episodes of Penny Dreadful (it´s on netflix), and yeah, he seems to have lost some height. His posture isn´t the best in the best though. How much height difference do you think there is between him and Josh Hartnett, Rob?
[Editor Rob: I think he can look 6ft 1.5 with him]
Smookie said on 28/Dec/14
I was standing talking to him. I'm 5ft 9 and I was wearing heels (about 2 1/2 inches) and what flashed instantly up in my mind was disappointment that yet another hunky actor who turns out to be much shorter than they seem on screen. I would've put him at 6ft MAX (as I felt taller than him) so maybe he's shrunk with age?
Arch Stanton said on 17/Dec/14
Rob can you update with a photo and British actor, best known for playing James Bond in The Living Daylights and License to Kill and for roles in films like The Tourist, Flash Gordon, Mary, Queen of Scots, Cleopatra, Wuthering Heights (1970), The Lion in Winter, Agatha, The Beautician and the Beast and the voice of Mr. Pricklepants in Toy Story 3. I think though you mention that he is also well-known for his various Shakespearan roles on stage which dominated most of his career, I think most people associate him with James Bond and Shakespeare.
Lebensdorf said on 14/Dec/14
Dalton was a little taller than Davi. Nothing less than 6'2. Tallest actor to play Bond.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/14
He was edged out about Robert Davi
dan said on 3/Oct/14
Didn't look more than 6'1" in Licence To Kill
mike said on 26/Sep/14
I would just give him full 188 peak.
Anon said on 27/Aug/14
Dalton may have been 6'1.5 or 6'2. But I do not buy the same for Davi, he looks about 5'11 with Rob.
Lebensdorf said on 27/Aug/14
Solid 6'2. Maybe he shrunk a little in older age, but he was never less than that at his peak. If you watch the episode of Conan from around 2000, Dalton is almost the same height as O'Brien. Bond tailors confirm his height. He was the tallest actor to play the role to date. Please upgrade.

he can look sometimes only 6'1 or so then can look 6'2. i think Rob is fair here. he was no more than 6'2 flat. nowadays he is hardly taller than weak 6'1 Alan Rickman so 6'1.8ish peak is possible but he may have been 6'2 on the dot. he would be around Connery's height who was 6'2.25 peak i think.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/14
None of the Bonds were ever 6ft3 (except Connery out of bed maybe). But Dalton was a solid 6ft2 when he played 007. I don't know what the deal is with this 6ft1.75 listing.
Mike said on 16/Feb/14
Crikey when I bumped into him he was a good 6' 3". I stood right next to him. He's hardly shrunk.

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Dec/13

Yeah at worst he's 6'1.6 now peak 6'1.8. But he could be 6'2 flat. He definitely looks it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 2in (188cm)"

Still looks close to it now. Lost pretty much nothing since he played Bond.

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 4/Aug/13

Nah Davi and del toro were same . You must remember when 2 ppl are same height or so close that if one person bounces up on their feet or stands a touch straighter you may see them as a touch taller. Even a guy 2 inches bigger can drop posture for a bit and look only .75 or so taller than a 6'0 guy. Look how many pictures Rob has of 5'8 guys who appear like .1 of an inch or so shorter
avi said on 13/Dec/13
@Mario says on 8/Sep/13

Agreed but he was obviously made, like so many others, to look taller on screen. There's too many factors when judging height especially from just seeing pics and movies. He could have had a 1 inch lift plus the angles can make him look over 6'2. Not saying he did but look at so many Hollywood actors . If you are 5'10 or 5'11 they can make you look close to 6'1. Most British stars aren't too concerned so its unlikely they will try to trick people regarding their height. I'd go with 6'2 flat for Dalton now maybe 6'1.7. That 6'1.75 is probably what he got measured at when he was 19-24 and grew .2 -.3 of an inch or maybe he is 6'1.75! Never know!
avi said on 11/Dec/13
Rob
why the 6'1.75 listing? wasnt he 6'2 flat maybe weak 6'2 at worst but surely seems 6'2. is it because he was hardly taller than John Rhys Davies in james Bond TLD? im not disagreeing with you im just curious to why the odd height instead of just 6'2. i think he can look 6'1.5 then all of a sudden a strong 6'2.
[Editor Rob: from several years there was either an article on the web or news archive in which someone had asked about his height and was given back 6ft 1.75...I can't remember which though!]
Michael said on 4/Nov/13
I once saw Timothy Dalton the day after a Six Nations match at Edinburgh Airport executive lounge, he stood a few feet away from me. I don't judge a person by their height, but I would definitely say he was 6' 3'' that was back in 96'.
Mario said on 8/Sep/13
Different footwear, camera angles, posture etc can all influence I guess. Look at Michael Madsen, he's probably close or was back in his day at least close to 6 ft 2, but sometimes he can look 6 ft in his movie's. Dalton has always been described as 6 ft 2, and to me has looked it for most of his carreer and next to most actors, and even now he doesn't look any shorter than 6 ft 1.5 to me.
avi said on 7/Sep/13
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 24/Jul/13
@Mario

No because he didn't have more than 1.5 on Rhys Davies in LD. I think Rob has him right could be 6'2 flat though. Davies was 6'0 or a touch over so Dalton at 6'1.7 makes sense I suppose.
Mario said on 6/Sep/13
Why not a strong 6 ft 2 for back in his day? Might have shrunk by now since he's getting close to the 70s, but in is older movie's he doesn't any shorter than 6 ft 2 to me.
Rusty said on 27/Aug/13
This man has looked a strong 6'2" in everything i have seen him in

Rob, if Dalton's a weak 6ft2, could Davi be a strong 6ft2?
[Editor Rob: they looked very close in height]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jul/13
I've seen The Living Daylights and License To Kill enough times to know he was a solid 6ft2.
Where did the 6ft1.75 come from anyway? I'm certain I read 6ft2.5 for him somewhere aswell.

188cm peak, 186-187cm today
Willy said on 16/Jul/13
The pictures with Pierce and Roger are posted quite often. However, Dalton is closest to the camera, Roger was almost 70 when they were taken, and Brosnan has loose posture on both of them. Be that as it may, Timothy does look like a totally legit 6'2'' on them, doesn't he?
Gio said on 15/Jul/13
Dalton still looked 6'2 next to Moore and Brosnan IMO.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jun/13
Personally I think 188cm peak is spot on for Dalton while Davi and Del Toro were a hair taller at 189cm.

Ok I take that back. He was an underrated Bond. He had the appearance and the intensity. I rate him higher than Craig and Lazenby. But Brosnan for me was the ideal 007. Appearence was spot on and so was his quick wit and sincerity. Really did an impeccable job and should've been kept on for 1 more movie
David said on 18/Jun/13
I read in some magazine years ago that Timothy Dalton as the then James Bond is just 6ft 1.I have a feeling that is so right.
Dan said on 17/May/13
Connery was NOT 6'2.5". NO WAY. Dalton, I'd say, was a bit under 6'2".
Willy said on 18/Apr/13
Strong 6'1'', but not quite 6'2''. In The Lion In Winter, which was shot when both actors were at their peaks and also appeared to be in similar footwear, Dalton was a bit shorter than Peter O'Toole. It looked like 6'2'' for Pete and 6'1.5'' for Timmy.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Feb/13
Agree with Jamz, Dalton was the most like Fleming's character overall, he looked like James Bond and was cold, edgy and realistic.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/12
Looks closer to 6ft 1in today at 68 and a lot thinner.
ryn said on 27/Oct/12
easily the closest to the Bond character described in Sir Ian Fleming's novels...definitely not as jovial as Roger Moore or as corny as Pearce Brosnan, but yeah...anyways definity 6 1.75-2" if you see him in Chuck
Patrick said on 20/Oct/12
Anyone who thinks Dalton is 6 foot is stupid. 6 foot 2 1/2 for this guy.
little sue said on 5/Oct/12
I agree with Jamz, I thought after Craig, Dalton was the best Bond. If you read the books you can relate Bond more to Craig and Dalton as they played him as the character was, a trained killer.
Jamz said on 4/Oct/12
Rampage: Are you serious? Dalton had as much intensity as Craig and Connery. He was a great Bond, realistic and gritty. Certainly leaps and bounds ahead of Moore and Lazenby.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/12
When they played Bond...
Connery was 6ft2.5(189cm)
Lazenby was 6ft2(188cm)
Moore was 6ft1.5(187cm)
Dalton was 6ft2(188cm)
Brosnan was 6ft1.75(187cm)
Craig is 5ft10.5(179cm)

Shaun, Dalton had the looks but he lacked in pretty much everything else. Connery obviously created the whole Bond cult.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Aug/12
Brosnan took took it to new heights. You can't deny that.
Shaun said on 6/Feb/12
Connery in my opinion was the most masculine Bond, then Dalton. Dalton had something cold in the eyes though and a serious nature which made him look an assassin though and more believable as a government agent. He's always looked 6'2" I think and looked noticeably taller than Brosnan and Moore.
Henrik said on 12/Jan/12
Hank says on 9/Oct/11
Timothy Dalton is definitely the most masculine James Bond,

I agree. The fact that he was wanted for the role at already 21 years of age should be evident enough, lol.

188cm or an exact 6'2", I think.
LAN Jiao said on 2/Nov/11
he is taller than brosnan who claim the same.
Hank said on 9/Oct/11
Timothy Dalton is definitely the most masculine James Bond, even more so than Daniel Craig, he is a clear 6'2" actor. I think his stint as 007 was short because the Cold War ended around the time of his second film. The first Bond movie with his successor Pierce Brosnan was trying to rework a post Cold War 007. James Bond became relevant again in the post 9-11 world.
Victor said on 25/Sep/11
Timothy Dalton is a solid 6-2, and stood an inch taller than 6-1 Pierce Brosnan and 6-1 Roger Moore. He and Connery are both the tallest men to portray Bond. Regardless Daniel Craig proves that shorter men could portray 007 as Craig is the shortest actor to portray the character and stands 5'10" tall.
Tman said on 16/Sep/11
Shaun aparrently the bond director of Lazemby would some times just abandon him to get a rise out of him on set but mr Lazemby took this the wrong way and I guess this showed in his perfomance!

Simon Templar said on 9/Sep/11
Rampage: do not try to contradict you, Rampage, but respectfully disagree with you. I see no way in which Roger, in his youth, has reached 188 cm.(guess you mean "in his barefoot") (6ft2 approx.)
In every pic. that Timothy Dalton (187 cm.) appears next to Moore, he always looks at least 4 cm. (1 1/2 inch.)taller, and Dalton is registered on this website at 1.87 cm (6ft 1.5 approx.). So, for me, Roger could have never been taller than 6ft 1 max, though possibly 6ft 0,5 or so.
Mr. R said on 1/Sep/11

Mr Dalton looks tall in all his movies and I thought he was about 188cm 6'2, but when you watch license to kill and he is wearing just normal flat shoes looks around 6'0.

Not when you consider he looked a smidge shorter than Robert Davi and was still taller than 5'10" listed (5'9" more likely) Talisa Soto in heels.
Shaun said on 23/Jul/11
Lazenby was by far the worst Bond. The others were all credible. like Terryman I liked the range, with the rough charm of Connery, the comedy/irony of Moore and the seriousness of Dalton and the suaveness and sophistication of Brosnan.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jun/11

I saw Mr Dalton on Hampstead Heath a couple of months ago as I was out walking with my husband. He kindly returned our greeting and we chatted for a few minutes before we all went about our walk. My husband is a solid 6.2 (a bit over that,when he wears ordinary shoes),well, my husband and Mr Dalton were standing shoulder to shoulder with me facing them and I could tell that the latter was at least an inch taller than my darling Paul. I'd, therefore, say that he is definitely closer to 6.3 today. Neither Mr Dalton nor my husband were wearing any lifts or special shoes.
It has always been known in Britain that TD has been the tallest of the Bonds, a bit taller than Connery (who's not in want of height himself).
linebacker40 said on 4/Jul/09
At least 6'1.5" and likely a solid 6'2" at peak. The man is just too tall to be a flat 6' and still have a presence amongst other actors.

6-2 Anthony Edwards had 2 inches on him. He could have been 6-0 for sure.
Ali said on 30/Jun/09
6ft-6'0.5 max height IMO. 6'2 No way IMO.

Only Connery might have been 6'2 and he himself stated
that he was 6'1.5. Lazenby said that Connery was the tallest
Bond. Lazenby is nowadays slightly under 6'1.

Timothy Dalton was never over 6'1. I think he was
6ft max with a good pair of lifts 6'1.

rusty BMI is rubbish, it measure your body weight against your height. It does not measure your fat, body size and is terrible for health. I am a medium build guy, in other words my middle finger and thumb touch wrap around my wrist. A big build guy's won't, a small build guy will overlap. I am 180 and 5'11, so overweight according to the bmi, the us body fat measure puts me at 13-14%. Overweight for guy is 22% plus body fat. If I was a large build I would be 195, I would be down to 4% body fat before i would hit bmi 24 figure. 4% body fat is boxer weighing appearance and body builder competion day. it is really bad for you. You put weight on as you get older, the old medical journals used to same a pound a year 25 to 45. Please do not encourage people to use the bmi, its good if you are 25 and a medium build, if you are not for get it.

Hugh 190cm said on 11/Jun/09
Hi Thomas. Fair play to you in putting on those extra pounds. At 165lbs you are at an ideal weight. Well done. In my opinion brosnan currently stands a shade less than 6ft2 and has lost no height due to an active lifestyle and good posture.
Yvonne said on 10/Jun/09
I have met Dalton in a restaurant in L. A. and I think that 6'1" or 6'2" is about right. I was with my then husband who is 6'2" and Timothy Dalton was the same height.

Hello Hugh.Yet since february i`m bringing more weight.Actually i weight 165lb (6ft2inch)and i feel much better and stronger.I eat more times every day.
By the way i think Mr.Brosnan is today a strong 6ft1inch, but not under that.
yoyo said on 4/May/09
he looks to be the 2nd tallest james bond guy. Connery def the 1st tallest bond. Brosnan looks to be shortest at 6ft1(185cm).
Akirum said on 28/Apr/09
I think Connery might have been 6-2 tops when he was real young, but in any case Dalton and Lezenby were consistently 6-2.
ikbtops said on 24/Apr/09
It has been said that Dalton and Lezenby are the tallest Bonds. Like it or not 6'2"-ish!
Akirum said on 20/Apr/09
6'1 and 133 is below recommended weight. If he could get up towards 145 lbs that would be within a healthy weight range.

I would argue that Brad Pitt has an ideal body weight for his height, and I think many guys wish they were built like that. He's really only "rake thin" from the standpoint of a population of mostly overweight citizens. Back in 1960 his weight would have been quite normal, and the average guy was 166 lbs back then... fastforward to nowdays, average men are weighing 190 lbs. I don't think this increase in weight was simply devoted to working out, I rather suspect McDonald's and the ever increasing belly was more likely the case. Is this extra 25 lbs a healthier look?
Akirum said on 18/Apr/09
I'd say Dalton was a strong 6'1 1/2. Interesting that the tailors in London give Dalton as the tallest Bond.

159 lbs for 6 ft 2 is slender, but no means unhealthy. I am 6 ft 0 tall and weigh 165 lbs. This is actually the optimal recommended ideal weight for a medium framed man of my height. An extra 10 to 15 lbs of muscle would certainly benefit me, but this would be more of a Western cosmetic approval than what my body requires.
Doug said on 18/Apr/09
There is a guy on Glenn or Rob's page who is 6'1" and claims to be 133 pounds. Now thats is unhealthy! 160 pounds at 6'2" is underweight period, Pitt is as askinny as a rake and is this weight at a weak 5'11". You should be at least 175 or 180 pounds minimum.

Thomas you really need to consider putting on some weight. 6ft2, 159lbs is not healthy. A man of your height should weight at least 185lbs. I myself am 191cm and I weigh 220lbs (used to be 233lbs). I don't mean to sound big headed. Just some friendly advice. If you want to remain rake thin thats your choice.

6'2" and 159 pounds is rake thin yes, but not unhealthy. Healthy weight for 6'2" is 145 to 195 pounds with 180 as the ideal weight. Im 6'3" and 170 pounds and perfectly healthy.
Anonymous said on 6/Apr/09
According to the James Bond film tailors in London, at 6' 1.75" he is the tallest of all the Bond actors. The tailors who have fitted and measured each of the 5 Bonds over the years claim the following heights for each of the other Bond actors: Sean Connery 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, George Lazenby 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, Roger Moore 6' 1.25" without shoes and Pierce Brosnan 6' 1.25" without shoes.

There are many reasons you weigh that much:

1. Your body fat level is much higher, most likely as most people do have a higher body fat level than me

2. Your bone structure is likely thicker than mine

3. You have more muscle mass than me, as you work out alot more and naturally have more than me

I dont know anyone who considers me underweight. When I buy jackets, im sometimes swimming in them, but in T-shirts, i look pretty ripped.

When my kid's parents see me, they always comment on my body, as they are all heavier than me most likely.
Anonymous said on 3/Feb/09
170 at 6'3"? Thats underweight surely? Is it me or are the tall guys on this site really lightweights? I'm around 6'2.25" barefoot out of bed and weigh 224 pounds and I'm only 25. I'm not fat, but I'm very well built with a large chest and shoulders and work out quite a bit. Guys who say 190lbs is heavy really makes me feel pretty much a cake!

I am 6'3", and when I reached that height at age 17, i weighed 160, and now im 40 and weigh 170, which i have weighed for over 20 years now and i would consider myself at a perfect weight. Ive never really changed my body shape, i guess.

Hugh says on 19/Jan/09
Rusty 6ft and 180lbs is quite quite slim actually.

It depends how you are build and proportioned. If you have a lanky proportion, long legs and shorter torso and not that naturally broad frame, then you can quickly look too heavy.
Then again if you have longer torso, shorter legs and broad shoulders, then you can weigh surprisingly lot without looking "heavy". Im 6-2 and a little over 200lbs and some say that Im slim.


So 6ft and 180 can look both slim and somewhat heavy. If you are exactly six feet tall then around 180 is a pretty good weight. Definitely not 150!
Rusty said on 21/Jan/09
Hugh how is 6ft 180 slim? I would say slim at that height is about 150-170.

In my opinion Dalton and Lazenby were 6ft2. Connery was 6ft2.5. Moore could've been 6ft2 when he was a young man. Brosnan is at least 6ft1.5 but could possibly be 6ft2.

Yep, Connery and Dalton were both solidly 6-2 in my opinion. In their prime I`d say they were within 1cm. 188-189 both. Robert Davi was probably the same height. Certainly in Predator 2 Davi was shorter than Glover and he and Dalton were the same height, weren

Rusty, BMI isn't the best way to measure, if a person is in good shape. Almost all sportsmen would be overweight or even obese, if u just look at the BMI. Guy who is around 6ft2 and 180 lbs looks really slender, if the person has done some sports.
Rusty said on 14/Jan/09
He was measured at 6'2" by the bond tailors and weighed a little under 180 in 1989.

That is a BMI of 23.1, and he has always looked on the thinner side and if he is only 6'0" as some of you guys are saying, that would be a BMI of 24.4, which is almost overweight.

I think he might have been almost 6'3", but rounded himself down as he hadnt quite reached 6'3" and didnt wanna claim a height that he hadnt reached.

I agree. In his Bond movies, Dalton looks TALL. Every bit as tall as 6'2" Robert Davi in Licence to Kill and noticeably taller than 6' Jeroen Krabbe. Dalton is a solid 6'2".

For heaven's sake. EVERYONE comments on how tall he is. Not only is it evident in LION IN WINTER, but also in JANE EYRE where he towers over EVERYONE, not just Zelah Clarke, who's tiny. In fact recent interviewers made mention of his size. Implying he looks even taller in person. Cast mates also noted that in the HOT FUZZ extras (great movie btw). And if you look at the HF premier footage where he's signing autographs, he's probably the tallest person there. How much evidence do you want?

As for vanity, that's ridiculous. The guy is legendary for shunning Hollywood "style," almost to the point of rebellion. He's frequently described as on the scruffy side. Not the type of thing he'd be concerned about. Sometimes cameras shoot scenes in ways that create some distortion, so you can't scrutinize every little thing, it's deceptive. But honestly I've no doubt he is 6'2". No vanity-lying or shrinkage.

I think 6 ft 1.75 in (187 cm) is his exactly height and George Lazenby is the tallest actor to play Bond.
Sean Connery: 6-1.5 (1m87)
George Lazenby: 6-2 (1m88)
Roger Moore: 6-1.25 (1m86)
Timothy Dalton: 6-1.75 (1m87)
Pierce Brosnan: 6-1.75 (1m87)
Daniel Craig: 5-10 (1m78)

According to the tailors that have worked for the company that produces the Bond films (Eon Productions):

Sean Connery: 6-1.5

George Lazenby: 6-1.5

Roger Moore: 6-1

Timothy Dalton: 6-2

Pierce Brosnan: 6-1

Daniel Craig: 5-10

So, as yet, Dalton is the tallest actor to play Bond, and, I would say, a definite 6-2.

Guys, I saw this guy in 1992 in Rome, I was 6.4 at the time. Now I am 6 5 and have stopped growing of course. He was at least 6-3 or around my height. Because he was very slim, he seemed very tall. What does he look like now? Bet you is fat and bald.
Tee said on 10/Sep/07
If you listen to the commentaries on the Hot Fuzz DVD almost all the actors providing the commentary remark how tall Dalton is and how physically imposing he can be - Olivia Coleman stated that Dalton was like 8 foot tall! and scary!
Rider said on 12/Aug/07
no chance!! 6 ft 2in is being generous, !!simon peg is tiny 5ft 7in MAX check this photo, (jim broadbent in the background in a door way which should be 6ft 6 ,and he's a good 5 inches under) i'd say dalton is 6 ft MAX ..

In 1989, I sat on a transatlantic flight for 6 hours with Timothy Dalton. He was in the seat behind me in first class; the permitted smoking row at the time. He did smoke nonstop for almost the entire flight). My fiance and I were surprised at how "short" he was. We had many opportunities to evaluate this while using the WC and stretching our legs, crossing paths in the aisle. He was certanily less than 6ft even and maybe closer to 5ft 11inches.
Viper said on 29/Mar/07
There has been rumors he wears lifts. He did look 2 inches shorter in that photo with 6-2 Anthony Edwards.
bokhari said on 27/Mar/07
i met dalton in a bookshop in the late 1980s and he was exactly eye to eye with me and i am 184 cm tall so hes not 6ft 2 or anything near as much as that
SR said on 23/Feb/07
Sorry mate, I just saw it the other day and thought I'd let you know. That's what was listed in the copy I saw, but I can't prove it. No dodgy business going on, honest!! And I'm not Yaois 7-7......
SR said on 23/Feb/07
You have to have a special pin to view actors credentials on the website, which casting agents/industry people etc pay for. They also have an actual book which you can thumb through, which major libraries sometimes have. That's where I saw his info. Sorry I can't prove this for you, the website is Click Here if that helps in any way...

[Editor Rob: I am fully aware, I just want someone who says they saw 6ft 1 to prove it because I've got Dalton's page here in front of me...1472.

this reminds me of Yaois7-7...]
SR said on 23/Feb/07
He's listed as 6'1 now in The Spotlight (directory for actors in the UK). Only he or his agent can submit personal details for this (including height, weight etc) so maybe he's shrunk slightly with age. Having said that, he and Jim Broadbent do look huge in "Hot Fuzz"!!

[Editor Rob: please do a printscreen and email to me then.]
Zyc said on 22/Feb/07
to an earlier comment, dalton does look very tall in hot fuzz but if anyones noticed the whole film is shot at simon peggs heights and hes quite short, therfore everyone taller than heim looks like a giant, alos when hes stood by the height board hes stood forward and in shoes which will give him a few inches. also anyone know how tall the goofy shop assitant who says 'yarp' is? he looks about 6'6 or 7?
The Horse of FUNK said on 20/Feb/07
Give me a break, he looks a minimum of 6'2.25 in 'The Lion in the Winter'. I think he's a consistent 6'2 in his younth and had leveled out in his elder age to a bang on 6'2".
The Vicar said on 19/Feb/07
Yes tubbs, i agree with you. I saw Hot Fuzz on Saturday and through the whole of that film Timothy Dalton did look a good 6,2 inches tall or more. I would put money on Timothy still being 6,2.By the way i would recomend everyone to go and see that film it is fantastic and Timothy was great in it.
tubbs said on 19/Feb/07
Saw him in Hot Fuzz last night,if you don't want to know Daltons outcome, do not read this! by the way he's fantastic in it, anyway, he still looks a strong 6'2", and when he has his mugshot at the end, the top of his head is at the 6'3" mark, he must have been in shoes for this. Either way, I think he needs upgrading to 6'2".
AA said on 15/Jan/07
Mr Mayfair, I don't think you're being "fair" :D!
Connery - 6'3"
Lazenby 6'2"
Moore - 6'1"
Dalton - 6'1.5"
Brosnan - 6'1"
Craig - 5'10"
That's what I think...
Mr Mayfair said on 10/Jan/07
T. Dalton 6.2
S. Connery 6.3
R. Moore 6.1
P. Brosnan 6.05
G. Lazenby 6.1 & 3/4
D. Craig 5.9 (maybe 5.9 & 1/2)
Phoebe said on 2/Jan/07
The tailors who have always made to measure the suits for Bond movies have Timothy Dalton as the tallest Bond at exactly 6'2", a hair's breadth taller than Sean Connery, with Roger Moore and George Lazenby being 6'1.5", Pierce Brosnan 5'11" and Daniel Craig 5'10".
Picture said on 11/Sep/06
How can Dalton be 6 ft 1.5 if Brosnan is 6 ft 1.5?

Why did you by the way remove a half inch of his official height Editor?
Editor Rob said on 9/Sep/06
Saw a 1987 Philly Daily news article. In it the movie reviewer was talking about how he had described dalton as a 5ft 8 man and people questioned that (duh), so:
"I called the movie's publicist. The true story: Dalton is "between 6 feet 1 inch and 6 feet 2 inches" "
piwo81 said on 19/May/06
Paul, how can it be that two men are the same height, as for example in the below picture Moore and Brosnan, and one is 183 cm and the other 186 ? :) In my opinion this picture is a proof that Brosnan's 188, 187, 186 and even 185 cm is a bulls***. I like Brosnan but the true is that he is 6' max.
Editor Rob said on 2/May/06
In recent Marple he squared up to 6ft 3 Laurence Fox and I thought he still looked nearish this mark...
anon said on 29/Apr/06
I just finished watching the Rocketeer. He's slightly shorter than Paul Sorvino so 6'1 1/2" or 6'2" is correct.
Paul said on 17/Apr/06
The picture suggests Moore could be 183cm, Brosnan 186cm and Dalton 187cm.
Moore probably was taller was he was younger. Maybe 185cm. Also, Dalton may have been 188cm a while back.

Exactly ludovic, thats what my colleg (photograph) said about Pierce Brosnan.
ludovic said on 12/Mar/06
Pierce is 185 cms, Moore 183 cms, Dalton 185.
I've met them in 2001 in a meeting.
I'm 183 myself.
Vincent said on 22/Feb/06
Dalton is the tallest of the Bonds. He is obviously a legitimite 6'2'' And in Hawks Janet McTeer is not taller than him, she is 1 inch shorter
Tubbs said on 5/Feb/06
On IMDB it has the boot losing scene as a goof, as when he is walking back through the plane, you can hear the sole of the boot on the floor of the plane. Either way, Dalton has always looked 6'2", I don't think he is the kind of guy to wear lifts. As for the Lion In Winter, I saw it in the shops the other day, i'm gonna get it and see the difference between Tim and O Toole.
Mario said on 2/Feb/06
The funny thing is that if you watch the movie The Lion Winter, Dalton looks taller than Peter O'toole. I have picture with my brother who is 5 ft 9 and he looks taller than me. In The Living Daylight, Bond lose one of his boots and he can still walk good. If Dalton was 6 ft as some still want think, he should have 3 inches in that Boot, but why can he walk normal?

If I get the DVD again, I will post some better pics for you Rob.

Has somebody also watch it Wuthering Heights? Dalton looks like he is 6 ft 4 in that movie!
I'm also surprised that you have seen the movie Hawks. I rented it some time ago on video! Dalton posture is horrible in that movie, but there are a lot moment in wich Dalton is about the same height as Anthony. I also don't see so much difference between Visnij and Anderson, more a 3/4 cm.
Mr.K said on 25/Jan/06
I wonder if anybody has seen the whole movie "Hawks". If you watch that movie you will be able to see several scenes where 6'1 actress Janet Mcteer is towering over Mr. Dalton. There are also scenes where you clearly see a height difference of about 4-5 cm between Anthony Edwards and Mr. Dalton. Anthony Edwards agency states his height at 187 cm. You can also take a look at many photos of the ER-cast and you will find 6'4 Goran Visnjic 6-8 cms taller then Anthony. I have also supported our editor with a photo from the sixties where Mr. Dalton is standing next to 6'2 Peter O'Toole. The difference in height is about 4-6 cms. As I have said before I have also met Mr. Dalton and I can assure you that he today is no more then 182-183 cms. Maybe at his peak he was 184 cm, but I doubt that.

[Editor Rob: this is the picture.

Although I'm not sure if ground is sloping slightly? Or something else]
Tubbs said on 21/Jan/06
Looks much taller than Cary Elwes, who is listed as 5'11, but describes himself as 6ft, 6'2 here in my view here.

Tubbs said on 11/Jan/06
If you watch the fight scene on the plane near the end of The Living Daylights, when Tim cuts his boot off with a knife, if you look closely you can see a lift fly out of it, suggesting that Dalton is only 6'0, did you spot that one Rob? No really, Dalton has always looked a 6'2 fella, and back to Brett's point about Anthony Edwards being 6'3, I believe that could be true, I have a brother, who is 6'4", but for some reason describes himself as 6'2, 6'2.5, 6'3", 6'3.5, anything other than the 6'4 that he is, so in my view Edwards is atleast 6'3, meaning on the Hawks picture Dalton is a genuine 6'2".

[Editor Rob: Dalton yeah, briefly he was walking with Billy Zane in that film and he did still look taller than Zane...the hawks thing, his posture matches the character type.]
tomking said on 8/Jan/06
The height is correct,when he was younger, congratulation rob.
TheMan said on 1/Jan/06
IMO Dalton has never looked 6,2 i geniunly thought he was only about 5,10 5,11 can't belive he's as tall as 6,2 just doesnt look tall for some reason.
Brett said on 10/Dec/05
I put this on the Brosnan sight aswell, I found a Pic of Anthony Edwards with Matt Mcconaughey, which suggest Edwards is well over 6'2". We know matthew is around 5'11" to 6'0", and here in this picture, he looks pretty small ( probably 4-5 inches shorter then Edwards, Matthews head is below Edwards eye level or there abouts) compared to Edwards, and according to this pic, edwards is nearer 6'3"-6'4" then 6'2", as Matthew may not be the 6'0.5" he claims but he wouldnt be less then 5'11" or alittle over it. So realistically it puts Edwards at atleast 6'3ish. Thus I think this would explain why he is slightly bigger than Dalton, as maybe Edwards is really a weak 6'3"?

Heres the pic

Tubbs said on 5/Dec/05
Timothy with 6'2" Anthony Edwards in 80's movie Hawks, not much in it here, Edwards is doing what Rob may call the 'Sir Ian McKellen' trick , by putting his arm on Timothys' shoulder. A geniune 6'2 in my view.

Brett said on 21/Nov/05
Mcfly, I have met every celebrity I claim to have met, before making such statements about my ability to string a sentence together, consider you level of education, mine is a bachelor of commerce and arts Law double degree, whats yours pal..... unless your the deane at my university, you really have no foot to stand on making such comments. Insulting people on here is somewhat petty, I am only persistent over the heights of celebrities that I have met, although Dalton does look taller then Brosnan ( who I have met) and thus in my opinion would have to be over 6'2". By the way Mcfly, I was talking about the "Paste " person who clearly cannot spell, and his so-called encounter with Dalton is obviously ficticious, as claiming Moore lazenby brosnan etc to be 5'10" is ludacris.
Brett said on 20/Nov/05
I reckon that Dalton is no less then 6'2", most legitimate claims put him at above this, but lots of people on here like to come and claim they have met celebrities, most of which are not able to string a simple sentence together.
Mario Nariano said on 17/Nov/05
In this picture he looks 3 inches taller than Jeroen Krabbe

I need to rewatch The Living Daylights.
Viper652 said on 13/Nov/05
Then how come Dalton looks a good deal shorter then 6-1-6-2 Anthony Edwards in Hawks, and in the promo pics?? He looks no more then 6-0 there.

[Editor Rob: I think his character is supposed to have dodgy posture?]
Mario Nariano said on 13/Nov/05
That was sometine ago added in the trivia section of Dalton. Maybe by a fan...
A lot of fans want that there favourite Bond is the tallest. Of course Dalton is 6 ft 2 (or maybe taller, he looks taller than Peter Otoole) but Lazenby and Connery where definetly 6 ft 2.5 at the time they played Bond.
Brett said on 12/Nov/05
Rob, campbell really looks 6'4" in the O.C, he dwarfs adam brody by 3/4s of a head and hes 5'11", Id say dalton is 6'2" plus, he does look to be a large man
Mario Nariano said on 11/Nov/05
Nope he was slighty shorter than Lazenby and Connery.
Seb said on 10/Nov/05
Stop lying Paste, you never met him. Dalton was definitely the tallest actor to play Bond, at 6'2".
Paste said on 9/Nov/05
I meeted him, Dalton is probably 5 ft 11 nowedays. He told me that he wored lifts too look taller. He also said that he is teh tallest Bond at this moment, does this mean That Brosnan, Moore, Lazenby are in the 5 ft 11 to 5 ft 10 range? Or did Dalton lie to me, I will aks him again!
Gotxo said on 7/Oct/05
Lol, Mario, I agree with you. He's a Shakespearean actor. He did great plays, he's not interested in that hollywood s***. And he looked similar to Benicio de Toro in
height. An Honest guy too, that was raised in the past to match the idea the public had on their co-stars :)
Mario Nariano said on 7/Oct/05
No I still think that Dalton is a strong 6 ft 2.
He looks to tall to be under it. He is maybe a 1 or 2 cm shorter than Bill Campbell in The Rocketeer and it's funny that he doesn't look shorter Peter Otoole . I have never noticed something strange about his shoes. Dalton looks to me an honnest guy, he isn't a hollywood idiot who has an height complex.

[Editor Rob: I did see that flick and dalton looks a solid 188cm. Campbell I don't think is quite 6ft 4, I downgrade that guy a tad]
Viper652 said on 6/Oct/05
I think we can all agree that Tim is 6-0 barefoot now.
CelebHeights Editor said on 6/Oct/05
Ok, I did manage to check Dalton's CV on the Spotlight Database that Yao has mentioned in a few threads...
Guess what...NO HEIGHT is listed.

But, remember Screen Actors website do list him as 6ft 2 and this info was submitted by his agency!
Yao is 7-7 said on 2/Oct/05
http://www.freewebs.com/jamesbondheights/

check it out, they are saying they talked to Dalton again and when he said 6-2 he meant with shoes on, and is 6-1 barefoot.
Viper652 said on 19/Sep/05
If dalton is really 6-2 then why does he look considerably shorter in that 80s pic with 6-1 to 6-2 Anthony Edwards?? He looks 6-0 there.
Yao is 7-7 said on 18/Sep/05
I have no idea as no one else would if he wore lifts. I agree he looks tall 6-2 range, but he looks a bit shorter now maybe. I don't see him at 6-3 or 6-4 though at all like people claim.
Mario Nariano said on 18/Sep/05
I don't think that Dalton wores lifts. Some poeple claim that Dalton wore 2 inch elavator shoes, this would mean that he should look 6 ft 1 barefoot but he looks 6 ft 2 to 6 ft 3 in his movie's.

His shoes also don't look suspectious. Stallone can look 5 ft 9/ 10/ 11 and 6 ft because he wores different elavator shoes. Dalton always looks in the 6 ft 2 range.
Yao is 7-7 said on 15/Sep/05
Regardless, it doesn't matter, because if Lazenby says he is 6-1 1/2 now and he is as tall or TALLER than dalton, by the pic when broken down evenly.

Dalton's actor's Cv states he is 6-1.

Rob needs to look it up and post it.
Mr. Klaus said on 13/Sep/05
I watched the Lion Winter recently and this movie makes me think.
Sometimes Dalton looks about the same height as OToole and sometimes dalton looks an inch taller. I also watched also Licence To kill again, and Dalton looks an full inch taller than Benicio Del Toro!

Peter Otoole was for sure not shorter than 6 ft 2 at his peak. in his recent pics he still looks close to the 6 ft 2 mark.
