Top actor is Tim. For me, more 5'6" these days. Surprised to see he is only 63, in Hatton Garden he looked 83 !

I just turned my TV on πŸ“Ί and I can see a blond-haired Timothy Spall on a comedy programme.

Hasn’t this actor progressed well? He was originally a comedy actor and he’s progressed to starring with Johnny Depp in β€œSweeney Todd” and he was the central character in an Enfield Hauntings series, which I have on DVD.

Furthermore, he starred in Jimmy McGovern’s β€œThe Street”, which was top-notch entertainment. I sent my friend Nik a copy of the series, and what about the horror slots he’s filled with great aplomb? Dynamite!

Tim can have 5ft7.5. πŸ˜„πŸ‘

This part

πŸŽπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ Happy Birthday Tim! πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽ

Wishing Timothy Spall a Very Happy 63rd Birthday today! I just found 170cm for him - and that's correct, for once!

Timothy can look downright sinister in some of his roles, 'Wake Wood', for one, in which he plays the leader of a village with weird pagan-like beliefs in raising the dead for three days, so that the family can say goodbye properly. Strict rules apply, and lie to them at your peril....!

Then he led the cast of 'The Enfield Haunting' series, which was so good that I simply had to buy it.

Tim looks no more than 5ft7 to me in recent years, but he could have been nearer the 5ft8 mark in his younger days.

Today,do you think he could be 5'6.5 or could he still be 5'7?
Editor Rob: today he may well be heading to 169 range.
Chio said on 6/Oct/16
5'7 is probably too, my guess is about 5'7. In Harry Potter looks around 5'5 because is his character
Aravind said on 12/Apr/16
I think he'll be 5'6 at 60.

Check him out in the Last Samurai. I don't know if Tom Cruise is wearing lifts but Tim often looks 3 inches or more shorter than him. How ca one calculate his height?
Shawn said on 19/Feb/15
I just finished watching the film "Rock Star." He consistently looked an inch shorter than Mark Wahlberg throughout. 5'6.5"-5'7" is a good estimate for him.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Mar/14
Yeah I think you're spot on actually, in Vanilla Sky he looked about 2 cm shorter than Tom Cruise. 169 is possible but a flat 5'7 is a good shout.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Feb/14
I wasn't looking out for him in Sweeney and didn't notice how he looked next to Depp! I'll have to watch it again sometime. I suspect though he'd measure similar to G on the stadio. 5'8 on the nose :-]
Arch Stanton said on 5/Feb/14
Thanks for that. It doesn't help that he's overweight and doesn't have good posture of course and can look 5'6" range yeah but seeing him next to Corden he's about an inch shorter. I think 169cm is quite possible though.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/14
Yeah Corden has about on inch on him in Pierrepoint.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/14
And Peter Pettigrew from the Harry Potter films is worthy of a mention.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/14
Seems about right, can look 5'6 range too. Rob can you add Pierrepoint:The Last Hangman? He was great it it as the famous hangman.

Seems about right, can look 5'6 range too. Rob can you add Pierrepont? He was great it in as the famous hangman.
[Editor Rob: his 5ft 8 claim always seems a bit much, actually I remember seeing him with Depp in Sweeney Tood and thinking he really wasn't that much smaller...maybe his posture at times can make him seem a 5ft 6-7 guy.]

How tall would you estimate his son to be, Rob? He's listed between 6'1" - 6'3" but looks closer to 6'0" to me.
Alissa Snape said on 4/Nov/11
He looks shorter in the Harry Potter films:) But I believe 5'7! He must look shorter compared to Gary oldman, 5'9 and Daid Thewlis 6'3!
T. Tom said on 18/Mar/09
I'd say no more than 5'-5". In Rockstar Jennifer Anniston is taller than him.

He's 5'5" he was like two inches shorter than Tom Cruise in Last Samurai
