How Tall Are The 'Game of Thrones' Actors? See How Your Favorites Stack Up
Not everything is as it appears in Westeros! While some of the actors may appear strapping on camera, you may find yourself surprised when you learn how they stack up to one another — in height order. If you were wondering how tall the Game of Thrones actors are, your answers are set in stone.
Well, not quite. With some of the actors in their prime growth spurt years, like Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark) who may very well end up growing taller than Hodor. It's a good thing he sits down all the time. The list remains sort of fluid, but now you can see how you stack up to the actors. Could you take Jaime Lannister in a fight? Are you strapping enough to even attempt to knock down Brienne of Tarth?
Since most of the actors never appear in scenes together, you may be surprised to learn who's the tallest in the Seven Kingdoms. But no matter who's technically tallest in Westeros, we know that the dragons are actually the biggest behemoths in the realm.
