Lincoln was one of those guys who I thought might measure a bit low in person for 5'10" but I'd take Rob's word on him looking an even 5'10". Too bad getting a photo with him didn't work out.
Seeing someone in person can sometimes be more helpful.

dang what a shame. how much would you say he weighs? he looks around 160 lbs to me
said on 24/May/16
pretty cool to see that you finally got to meet the major walking dead actors, did you get any pictures with Andrew?
Editor Rob: they put his photo for sale and it sold out within 2 seconds such was the clamour. There were people using family members and multiple devices trying to secure one...
Jackman said on 1/May/16
Looks consistently taller than Norman Reedus in The Walking Dead and in photo shoots by at least 1cm taking into account footwear. 5'10 is bang on the money, probably a little over throughout the day and never sinking below the 178 mark.
said on 3/Apr/16
Rob what would you estimate for Scott Wilson (Hershel Green)? He seems to slightly edge out Andrew in most photos, looks a strong 5'10" to me.
He's listed at 5'11" elsewhere which he could have been close to in his prime, I imagine
Editor Rob: 5ft 11 peak and a bit less today maybe is right

strong 5'10 guy
datguy said on 1/Mar/16
in the newest walking dead episode he looked around 2 inches shorter in a close up face to face with xander berkely with the footwear advantage (huge cowboy boots) ... and that's assuming xander is the full 6'0 foot.
said on 28/Feb/16
Rob, how tall do you think he stands in his cowboy boots on TWD? He must be around the 6ft mark in them, as they are quite something.
Editor Rob: could be almost 6ft in them.
datguy said on 14/Feb/16
I think he'd measure at 177 cm too he just never seems taller than Norman Reedus even in pictures where they're both standing up straight. Also there's been pictures of him and David Morrisey posted on here that clearly show more than a 4.5 inch difference.
said on 13/Feb/16
177 cm, for sure. He's just not that much taller than Reedus or Yeun:
Best Yasuo HK said on 12/Feb/16
He looks about the same height as Norman Reedus so he's 177cm too
Dame said on 30/Jan/16
177 half cm. His head just makes him taller.
datguy said on 26/Jan/16
hey rob how high do you think the chances of Andrew Lincoln being under 5 10 are
Maximus said on 29/Aug/15
I'm 5'10" slightly taller maybe an 1/8" and he definitely appears my height.

1.75 .176 barefoot max
the shredder said on 15/Mar/15
Yeun does look 5'7 or 5'8 there , but in person he looked 5'9. He looked close to Reedus in person.
said on 8/Mar/15
Yeun may appear 5'9" in person, but maybe that's because of footwear.
Do you think he looks as high as 5'9" with 6'4" Conan? They're both barefoot here.
the shredder said on 3/Mar/15
Steven Yeun looks 5 '9 in person , even Mamun saw it.
184.3cm said on 1/Mar/15
That footwear looks suspicious (Steven Yeun). He pulls off 5'9 there next to Lincoln.
kmo said on 25/Feb/15
Ron said on 24/Jan/15
Little point arguing between 5'9 and 5'10 - he could be either in those boots and even then what's the point really? With good posture, good boots and hair he could easily stand next to a 6' guy standing with a, let's say "common" posture (bit of a slouch, neck forward a bit, leaning on one leg etc) and look about the same.
I like his example, actually, so many friggin people talk up their height these days, not just in Hollywood but in everyday life. 5'7 (which in itself isn't short) becomes 5'9, 5'10ers claim themselves 6', 6'ers call themselves 6'2-3. It goes to show that our perceptions are skewed, a solid 5'9-10 looks healthily tall, we're surprised it's that low, and real 6'ers appear very tall. If you look at real 10s like Lincoln, Manu Bennett, Anthony Mackie, Andrew Garfield and those in that sort of range, Viggo Mortensen, Matt Smith, George Clooney, Tom Hardy, Ewan McGregor and Tom Felton they really do generally look rather tall, and never short, as "internet idiots" these days like to claim.
There, that's just my little rage at the perfect standards set in popular culture today.
the shredder said on 10/Dec/14
Steve Yeun looks 5'9 there , the height I saw him , he must wear lifts .
said on 9/Dec/14
Rob has a photo with 5'11" John Bernthal. Here is a pic of Bernthal and Lincoln.
Here is Andrew Next to 5'8" listed Steven Yeun.
Rob has a photo with Norman Reedus. He is listed at 5'9.75". And there really isn't much in it between Andrew and Norman. There's tons of pics of them together and in most of them he looks slightly taller, in others he looks slightly shorter, in others they look the same.
Here's a few:
He is in the 5'9.5" - 5'10" range. Six-foot is impossible.
the shredder said on 9/Dec/14
Looks 5 '11 ish in Cowboy boots , 5 '10 every other time.
184.3cm said on 8/Dec/14
Good listing, You guys below with your 6 foot guesses just goes to show most dont know what a legit 6 footer looks like. He doesnt look 5'11 even.
Sponk said on 6/Dec/14
1-st: he has a slim build but that wouldnt help him to look as tall as he is with only 178cm.
2-nd: I dont remember him looking shorter then bernthal, or at least noticably shorter.
3-d: Bernthal seems to wear thick shoes, Linkoln wears flats a lot.
Linkoln could be even 181 and 178 is obvious bull***, and doesnt matter what he was listed at.
hal said on 5/Dec/14
He doesn't look a millimeter below 5'10". The downgraders on this site are so annoying sometimes. Most of my friends thought he was around 6 feet tall before I told them he's 5'10". He's a strong 5'10er.
The Exorcist said on 19/Nov/14
Looking at pics with Norman Reedus, he is clearly very similar. In some he looks a little shorter and in others a little taller.
5'9.5"- 5'10" range
said on 9/Nov/14
Here's a picture with Andrew Lincoln with 5'11 listed Jon Bernthal:
a) Click Here
b) Click Here
(that also applies to Norman Reedus)
In my opinion either Jon is taller or Andrew isn't 5'10...my bet is 5'9.25 max.
mike said on 9/Oct/14
Looks a solid 178 to me. 5ft 10.25 might be possible too.
AlexMahone said on 20/Sep/14
David Morrissey is 6'3 (191cm).
Justin said on 18/Sep/14
I can believe him being 5'10.
David Morrissey (The governor) pretty much towers over him at 6 foot 2.
med said on 11/Sep/14
Holly God! I though the was 6ft1-6ft2 in Walkind Dead.
Amaze said on 1/Sep/14
@voiceless yeah 15 year old avg 120lbs

Lee: The average weight a 15 yr old is more like 123 lbs.
Here's a photo of a 5'10 guy being weighed at 140lbs
Daniel said on 6/Aug/14
Rob, no way he's 5'10". Norman Reedus, who is 5'9.75" always looks about a half or quarter inch taller.
Lee said on 28/Jun/14
weak 5'10 ~177cm and close to 170 pounds seems about right
145pounds is crazy talk thats like 66kg, thats like the weight of an avergae 15yr old - 75kg @ 177cm is my bet
the shredder said on 2/Apr/14
Rob I figured something out and why he looks taller , 178 cm = 5'10.25 , plus cowboy boots which would make him look a good 5'11.
said on 25/Mar/14
He must wear lifts in TWD, he looks taller than Berthnal who is at worst 179cm. He also makes Demunn look like a 5'6" guy, and certainly has more than an inch on all the 5'9" people on the show. Either that or he is 179-180cm himself.
Realistically, I see him at about 177cm.
[Editor Rob: not sure he really did look any taller, but didn't he wear cowboy boots a lot, that's going to give him that extra boost at times]
Zach said on 24/Jan/14
Ridiculous that he wears cowboy heels throughout Walking Dead, he always looks like he's off balance. He must be in 5'9 range he's barely taller than the other 5'9 guys even with his high heels.
erherage said on 12/Jan/14
i think he was wearing lifts in TWD, he looked maybe an inch taller than 5'9.5 reedus,
i think andy might be 5'9 or a little taller like 5'9.25
and his weight in the first couple of seasons was no more than say 140lb. now he looks 160. a lot of his weight is in his legs.
thedude said on 11/Dec/13
theres no way he is close to 170 lbs rob. im 5'9 and around 150. which is the typical weight for my height . hes reeally thin so id give him 155 at the most.
John95 said on 11/Dec/13
Rob, I think a 5'9.25 or 5'9.5 listing would be better.
Andrew Lincoln is not 6 cm taller than Steven Yeun.
MD said on 6/Dec/13
What does "He is vulnerable now" even mean? In what respect is he vulnerable?
Balrog said on 18/Nov/13
He was very thin in the firs episodes but now I'd say he's 160's range. My guess would be 165 to be accurate
blahblah said on 17/Nov/13
170lb is crazy. i was thinking 145lb on the dot. he's so thin (at least in the first couple of series of twd)
the shredder said on 3/Nov/13
170 for him seems right , he is fit and a decent height.
MD said on 1/Nov/13
I'd be shocked if he weighed 170lbs.
said on 30/Oct/13
Rob, how much do estimate Lincoln weighs? There's a debate out there on how Rick on the show could knock down the bigger built Tyreese and people estimate from 120 to 170 lb.
[Editor Rob: maybe 170]
said on 19/Oct/13
Rob is it just me or did Andrews accent sound more american in the walking dead? He never sounded british to me unless he just puts that accent on to make himself sound american like?
[Editor Rob: I guess he does a good American accent...I think that show recovered hugely after season 2 - it nearly lost me, but improved...]
MD said on 14/Oct/13
I didn't say that these aren't what you had them listed at. I was arguing that Andrew is listed too tall.
Cranberries said on 14/Oct/13
Lincoln has the shoulder width of a 12-year-old girl. I think he's more like 5'9".
said on 12/Oct/13
How is Norman Reedus listed taller than Andrew?
They are both under 5'10", to be honest.
[Editor Rob: norman is down as 177 and andrew has always been down as 178 on here.]
Lorne said on 9/Oct/13
I just can't get over him wearing boots in a Zombie Apocalypse! They should meet up with Stallone, who surely would have elevators to tower the walkers!
Adamz said on 2/Oct/13
listing seems reasonable.
Twdlover said on 21/Sep/13
I met Andrew Lincoln at comic-con 2011 he's about 160 Lb
The Doctor said on 14/Jul/13
Actually, I'm 5'9" & I walked past him in London years ago and was suprised how much shorter than me he is. He's about 5'7" max! Trust me!!
Jax said on 28/Jun/13
I agree with daniel....176cm tops...in cowboy boots a hair under 180cm
Marvin Rainwater said on 5/Jun/13
Andrew Lincoln is 5'9-1/2 to 5'10, and 155 pounds. 11 stone. Trim dude.
said on 4/Apr/13
He has a slim build, looks no more than 5'9 to me. He wears cowboy boots in TWD. Look at this picture of him with 6'2 David Morrissey. Easily a 5" difference between them.
Silent d said on 1/Feb/13
Yes I was talking about his personality and screen presence. 5 foot 10.
Balrog said on 26/Jan/13
Lo sgozzatore I think Silent D is talking about his personality not his physical appearance.
Silent D said on 13/Dec/12
He was so different in love actually. He has to be strong because he is the leader and he has to lead the group. 5 foot 10.
Lo sgozzatore said on 12/Dec/12
Imposing and strong? O_O He really looks an average man on twd and considering he always wears cowboy boots, that wouldnt surprise me if he were shorter than 5'10!
Silent d said on 5/Dec/12
I really thought he was 6 foot. He is so imposing and strong. 5 foot 10 is right. Sometimes he looks 5 foot 9 but might just be his posture.
Lo sgozzatore said on 5/Nov/12
Ok, in that case i'm gonna trust you. I thought something around 5'8 too. About Yeun, i dont know... Maybe he sometimes has bad posture and can appear shorter...
said on 5/Nov/12
Did you meet de munn? Why do you see 5'8? He is not even listed here!
Anyway, just to show you what i'm talking about, here you go:
And rooker looks 5'9 tops (i want to be generous) with ali!
[Editor Rob: yes he looked that height]
Johnnyfive said on 4/Nov/12
he looks 5 11 with his cowboy boots on the walking dead so 5 10 is right for Andrew.
said on 4/Nov/12
I looked some pics of Yeun and he can look 3 good inches shorter than guys like Andrew Lincoln. I also found some pics with Michael Rooker and he looks more than 2 inches shorter. He's a tricky guy. With Lauren Cohan, he looks at least 5'8. With other guys, he struggles to look 5'7... What you think?
[Editor Rob: well jeffrey de munn is five eight and steven doesn't look shorter]
said on 4/Nov/12
Yeah, i remember you saying he was similar height to lauren cohan, max 5'7.5... (your words)
[Editor Rob: five eight could be a better guess ]
said on 4/Nov/12
Rob, what about Stephen Yeun? I saw some pics of him with Lauren Cohan (in big heels, they dont give any less than 3 inches). He looks max 1 inch shorter than her. 5'8 range?
[Editor Rob: he does look somewhere in 5ft 8 range, I doubt any smaller.]
said on 23/Oct/12
All the men in the main cast seem close in height to. Bernthal might have a slight advantage but the guys are generally 5'9"-5'10" me thinks:
Frankie said on 19/Oct/12
Saw him yesterday at a cafe, not a small guy - didn't get to stand next to him but 5'10 seems about right
lol93 said on 16/Oct/12
balrog said on 16/Oct/12
Jon Bernthal I think is a solid 5'10'' maybe slightly over but I don't think he's a full 5'11'' (he also wears big boots in TWD). Lincoln and Reedus are same height IMO 177-178 cms. The male cast in TWD is solid average, all around 5'10'' except for Glenn.
Lo sgozzatore said on 15/Oct/12
Consindering he always wears cowboy heels, it's hard to believe he's over 5'10!
MaskDeMasque said on 5/Sep/12
looks 5'9 rather than 5'10 to me. maybe he's 176/177cm range.
said on 24/Jul/12
Has a tendency to wear cowboy boots on The Walking Dead yet still appears shorter than John Bernthal who is 5'10/5'11. What would your guess be for John, Rob?
[Editor Rob: probably five eleven i'd guess john can look ]
mike saporta said on 18/May/11
in 24 driver licence listed 6'02
tom said on 24/Jul/06
I saw him when he was filming the day after tomorrow, and he looks like he might be 6' but then i realized he was under 6 feet making 5'11 right.
