seems correct, looks 170-171 cm next to 5'2 emilia Clarke,

OK, Rob, here's B. Cumberbatch next to T. Tempah, both in dress shoes:

Comparing that photo to your own photo with Cumberbatch I think we can safely assume Tempah is very close to your height...

Just like @MD pointed out, however, Harington has actually footwear advantage on Tempah and still manages to look more than an inch shorter, camera angles taken into consideration...

Rob, I can't believe I'm saying this but, could it be possible for him to be near Dave Franco's height?!
[Editor Rob: he is somewhere around 5ft 7, I don't think I'd say he was as short as Dave though.]
NightCrawler says on 13/Mar/15
168 I would say is min. and 170 max. Anything below a legit 5'6" is hogwash though, even at night...
On set with 5'8.75" Peter Firth for "Spooks: the greater good" (excuse the quality):

I would say:
Morning: weak 171
Noon: weak 170
Night: strong 168.
Also don't forget Aaron Paul's forehead is kinda big so the difference in their heights is probably bigger than their eyelevels might otherwise indicate.
Humble guy btw, and very capable of succeeding in the action film industry, even if he was 5'4".
Surfer says on 3/Mar/15
168cm is my guess
MD says on 28/Feb/15
Yeah, the photos I posted with him and 5'8" Tinie Tempah show more than an inch difference, with the crazy thing being that Kit actually has a significant footwear advantage. I was being generous by even giving him a flat 5'7".
NightCrawler says on 25/Feb/15
Rob, I'm pretty sure he's below 170, he just wears lifts A LOT, just compare his leg proportions:
Prob. 1-2 " lifts:

No lifts (probably):

With 168cm George R.R. Martin:

I would say 168-169, he can make 176 Richard Madden look 182 sometimes:

Also his hair gives him around 3 cm...
robert says on 24/Feb/15
hes been downgraded i see. is this his end of day height or his evening height ?
[Editor Rob: I think it is still debatable if he is only 5ft 7 flat, but it isn't impossible at night he would hit that.]
word1234 says on 14/Feb/15
Click Here easily in need of a larger downgrade 5'7 max!! Come on rob
MD says on 27/Jan/15

He needs a downgrade.

Here he is with 5'7.75" Aaron Paul:

With 5'8" Tinie Tempah, with Harrinton even having a significant footwear advantage:

Even discounting the photo with Paul, this guy is a flat 5'7" at the most.
sabot says on 25/Jan/15
He looked rather short in Pompeii. Flat 5'7 guy IMHO. He is shorter then Aaron Paul: Click Here
The Master says on 19/Nov/14
Looks like Orlando Bloom, with smaller eyes. Anyone agree?
MD says on 18/Nov/14
This can't be right. Here he is with Tinie Tempah, who is a very weak 5'8", himself:

To ad to this, Tinie is in some very flat shoes and Kit actually has an advantage being in dress shoes.
Chris says on 17/Nov/14
If he was at least 5 inches taller, he'd be a 8/10 minimum.

Hi rob I'm hoping you'd be able to answer this question for me,
Okay so in this picture kit harrington stands next to Josef altin let's just say for the sake of the argument there's no lifts or any height increasing insoles involved how tall would you say kit looks in this photo!??
[Editor Rob: the one with the glasses on flat ground, I think he can look maybe 171 at most]
Word1234 says on 11/Sep/14
I agree Robs listing it seems legit. Could be a tad shorter could be a tad taller. And he does tend to wear a thick boot at most events.
Concerned 181 cm says on 10/Sep/14
Dude gets towered over a lot by the tall actors on Game of Thrones. Stannis (6'0), Mance (6'0), Thorne (6'1-6'2), and Styr (?) all make him look like a shrimp. Though to be fair, the guy who plays Styr is huge.
IAN says on 1/Aug/14
Downgrade needed.
Dave says on 26/Jul/14
Hey Rob, If Rose Leslie is 5ft4.75, Kit can't be more than 5ft7: Click Here
Jon says on 22/Jul/14
What would you say his weight is Rob? I've seen one website say 170 but that sounds too high give his lean frame and short height.
[Editor Rob: he did put on some bulk for the Pompeii film, so 165 range is very possible.]
TJE says on 21/Jul/14
He looked 172 on GoT next to John Bradley, but he's 2.5 inches shorter than Madden. I think he's more 5'7.25 than 5'7.25.
Gheist says on 21/Jun/14
He looks somewhere around 174 and 177 in GoT, is there a single possibility he hits 174 at his maximum?
[Editor Rob: from a couple of friends who saw him they said he looked around 5ft 7, I think it is more believable than over 5ft 8 that he is under 5ft 8.]
Duhon says on 11/Jun/14

Ra-Ra-Rasputin says on 9/Jun/14
Met him again in East London at the members club where i work, definite 5'7.5. No Less, no more. I'm 6'0 and he was, again, just below my eyeline. Very lithe build, though, so looks taller. Was wearing 'desert boot' type footwear so not much of a heel. I was wearing standard shoes with the usual 3/4 inch add.
Vladimir Horowitz says on 6/Jun/14
Met him today. I put him somewhere between 5'6" and 5'7". Didn't see his footwear but I had normal shoes on, and I absolutely towered over him at 5'10.5".
Crypto139 says on 20/May/14
You know I was wondering whether this guy was 5 feet 8 or 5 feet 10, but now it seems that he is even shorter than I thought! Where are all the 5 feet 10 sites claims are coming from though?

Well atleast the man was somewhat honest.
Chris says on 19/May/14
His lips are almost 2 inches thick
CeeDee says on 18/May/14
Had the pleasure of meeting him in London last night - lovely fella. And, yep, I'd say 5 7.5 is spot on.
Jeremy says on 18/Apr/14
Rob is he more like 171 or 171.5 ?
[Editor Rob: I think anywhere in that range he could be]
Balrog says on 27/Mar/14
Rob maybe 5'7.75" would be better? He does look closer to 5'8" than 5'7"
[Editor Rob: sometimes he can wear thicker footwear at events, but I am sticking with him being 5ft 7.5 at most for the moment]
SaveUsY2J says on 26/Mar/14
Rob, he doesn't look any shorter than John Bradley who you met. Are you sure he's not the full 5'8?
[Editor Rob: I think he would measure a little shorter than the 5ft 8 mark]
dude says on 26/Mar/14
He calls himself as 5'8" in the new GQ interview. Assuming he would rather round up than down, the listed height seems intuitive.

[Editor Rob: I'll add the claim at the top.]
master jedi says on 19/Feb/14
Was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and he looked VERY SHORT. At least 4+ inches. Side by side. 30 second mark

chrissss says on 17/Feb/14
no way in hell this guy is 5'9 or 5'10. looks tiny around the females in the game of thrones cast, and never looks tall, spot on listing rob
Emily says on 13/Jan/14
@Hola Are you male or female?
Hola says on 12/Jan/14
I saw your comment about head size here rob, I'm 5'5 range with a 9,25 inch head, ive aleays considered myself to have a somewhat large head, would i be correct in relation to my height?
[Editor Rob: yes, it would be more than average at that range.]
183CM says on 15/Nov/13
@JossBoss she is 5'5, not 5'6
183CM says on 28/Oct/13
@JossBoss She is 5'5, not 5'6.
JossBoss says on 12/Sep/13
when he was next to Rose Leslie (who was in heels) he was still taller than her. and according to this website it says she's around 5'6.. and there was no way she was wearing 1inch heels. he's AT LEAST 5'9...
Chris says on 28/Aug/13
@Rob do you substract his hair on top from that estimation? In this pic:Click Here it's clear his hair is quite thick. Lena's head would be about how many inches long?
[Editor Rob: his hair can vary from about 1/2 to an inch in thickness]
Emily says on 20/Aug/13
Rob do you agree his head looks disproportionate to his body? His head looks quite big. How many inches long from bottom of chin to top of head?
[Editor Rob: I think with hair being long and wavy it can add to the size, looking at him with a few other people I think nearly 9.5 is possible. Certainly, he doesn't have a small head for his height.]
dude says on 20/Jul/13
He's definitely no taller than 5'8.

Click Here

Co-star John Bradely, standing directly to his left is listed as 5'8 and appears quite visibly taller, although Harrington's posture is probably making him look a little shorter than he is. If Bradley's listing as 5'8 is exaggerated, which it likely is, Harrington couldn't be much more than 5'7.
Bradi says on 3/Jun/13
On second thought, John seems to have a lil' bit advantage

Click Here

Probably 0.5'' to 1''
Bradi says on 3/Jun/13
He looks to be the same height as John Bradley which you got at 5'8''.

I'd say 5'8'' for Kit, he doesn't looks short enough for 5'7''
hurricane brat says on 13/Apr/13
definitely looks taller on the show. Rob, how come you list 171 as 5ft 7.25in sometimes and 5ft 7.5in other times? Ive noticed this quarter inch discrepancy in other heights (174, 176 etc.) too
[Editor Rob: I store the height is feet/inches and show the cm beside it (the nearest whole cm) so 5ft 7.25 = 170.8cm, the nearest is 171 and 5ft 7.5 = 171.45, so it's closer to 171 than 2.]
Duhon says on 5/Apr/13
Doesn't look very tall next to these 2 ladies and judging from his expression he knows it. Click Here
Len says on 2/Apr/13
Yep, 5'8" or so is about right, though you only notice it when you see him standing right next to other characters.

He's well-proportioned and slim, so in many scenes he can look taller than he really is.

The 5'10" they try to claim for him some places is ludicrous. They should've tried for 5'9" and maybe some would have believed it.
Monkey says on 30/Mar/13
Standing next to Richard Madden he looks as tall as Peter Dinklage, and Madden is listed as 5' 11" some places, which is probably exaggerated. 5' 7" may be generous.
R4v3nh34rt says on 2/Feb/13
Yeah he's listed 5'10 almost everywhere but he doesn't look that tall. I thinks this is accurate
balrog says on 25/Dec/12
Wow I though he was 5'9'' at least. Tv is so amazing, makes you look taller ahaha.
173 says on 18/Nov/12
171 as listed.

I wouldn't say he's 'wee' as he is only a bit below average range and looks normal height on screen as most 5'7" guys do. But below 5'7"... now that's 'wee'.
little sue says on 11/Nov/12
I know a few women who love him and it would'nt make any diference if he was 5ft 7.5 or 6ft 2!!
Ria says on 10/Nov/12
He is 5'8" in his bare feet.
Chiara says on 10/Nov/12
Oh my god i canīt believe heīs so short. The camera can be so deceiving, this site is opening my eyes, and i donīt like it with some celebs lol!
Sharpshooter says on 10/Nov/12
5'7.5 is short, but its not critically short. He's only 2 or so inches below average height?
Sam says on 8/Nov/12
Wow, didn't think he was this short from GOT, but he really does look 5'7" next to his co-star Adelaide Clemens, 5'9"+ heels, in Silent Hill.

[Editor Rob: one thing is pretty sure, he's no 5ft 10 guy.]
leeniebean says on 8/Nov/12
yeh - 171cm is definitely more accurate. he's wee. ;)
Jack says on 7/Nov/12
He's listed at 178 cm on many sites. hmm....
