Liza Weil (aka Bonnie Winterbottom) is listed at 5'4" and looks a couple inches shorter than Viola Davis. Good listing.

She wears tall heels which make her like 5'9 she is probably 5'6 her friend in the help was only 5'1 so that made her look atleast 5'7.

Why does everywhere say 1.65? She seemed quite abit taller than Meryl Streep in "Doubt"

Could we get a page for Katie Findlay (Rebecca on HTGAWM)? She looks fairly tall, I'd say about 5'9.
[Editor Rob: yes, I think that's kind of what she agreed with when someone mentioned that height to her...]

On How To Get Away With Murder, she looks about 5'6 when she's next to the detective on the show; he claimed he was 6'2 in an interview. Her posture makes her look shorter.

She's starring in a tv series called "how to get away with murder" alongside Karla Souza. Rob, can you estimate Karla Souza's height?
[Editor Rob: somewhere in 5ft 3 range]

why did she get upgraded to 5'6? i thought even 5'5 might have been a little generous.

Saw Viola last night at The Help screening. Still just below 5-5.

Just saw Viola the other night in Hwood. She said hello to me as she passed me. She had on huge heels, but I would say she is maybe a little below 5-5.
