I agree with the other posters that he looks shorter than this listing

McCallum was approximately 2-3 inches shorter than his co-star Robert Vaughn on "The Man from U. N. C. L. E.". Vaughn is usually listed at 5'9", which would make McCallum approximately 5'6.5".

My wife met him when she was in high school. She was 5'7" at the time, and she was turned off by the fact that he was shorter than she was.

Luckily she married a taller guy like you, the internet poster dude.

It could be that the actorshe works with in NCSI are quite tall and the character Abby wears huge lifts, but he looks like he is in a hole in relation to them most of the time. He would've been taller when younger but in this show I tend to agree with Mr. R. - 5'5" today.

David is 5'7". However, during UNCLE he wore lifts in his shoes, so you cannot judge his height based on other actors he's standing next to. A better judge would be how he looks as "Ducky" on NCIS. I haven't heard anything about his wearing lifts for that series.

I also met Barbara at a signing event a couple years ago , but I saw her sitting and not standing . Anyway , she's now close to 80 , so she has probably lost a bit of height .

Here's a clip from an Avengers episode where she appeared :

Watch the video from 1:25 to 2:05 .

She actually looks a bit taller than Rigg there , it could be a footwear advantage .

She was definitely no less than 5'8" at peak . Even in "Village of the Damned" she didn't look short compared to George Sanders and the even taller Michael Gwynn .

Rob , any chance of adding Barbara Shelley ?

Here David seems to be around the same height as his wife Jill Ireland :

Here Jill is looking at least one inch shorter than her second husband , 5'8" Charles Bronson :

[Editor Rob: I've seen barbara at a distance before but it's impossible to say, a few years ago. She certainly looks more of a 5ft 8 possibility than mccallum does, there is a chance david has said a shoe height for his peak.]

Check this picture of David with 5'8" Barbara Shelley ( in flats ) and 5'7" Martin Balsam :

Through the entire episode , David is an inch shorter than Barbara and about the same height as Balsam .

Barbara was 5'8" ( although many sites incorrectly list her at 5'6" ) . That's what she looked through most of her career and that's also the height horrorstars.net lists her at :

Rob , could you please add Barbara on this site , so that the incorrect 5'6" listing will hopefully be corrected ?

Also , David is looking shorter than 5'8" Warren Stevens here :

I think he was closer to 5'7" .

I seem to remember, back in the U.N.C.L.E. days, that his height was stated as 5'7" and Vaughn at 5'9". In the Great Escape, despite good angles for Attenborough, MacCallum appears marginally taller.

@Frank2 Yeah I never bought 5ft10 for Robert Vaughn. Weak 5ft9 at best at peak.
