Candice King Height

"My favorite thing about playing a vampire is the stunts. It's just a new, fun thing to do. Especially as a girl, being able to be all dolled up in heels and little outfits and be able to kick boys' butts, I think it's a really fun, make-believe world to play."

American actress and singer, Candice King is perhaps best known for her role as Caroline Forbes in The Vampire Diaries and on the spin-off series The Originals and Legacies.

Candice King is tall, though quite not as tall as she is listed on IMDb and many other websites of the internet -- at stately 5-feet-8 inches.

From what we have seen of her, like with a 5-feet-5½ inches tall Nina Dobrev, we think Candice looks exactly an inch shorter than her listing.

Perhaps she was measured with her shoes still on? It is a real possibility, people do claim to be the height they were measured with their footwear.

The real height of Candice King is

5'7" or 170 cm

"I love to read. And right now I'm on my last hundred pages of 'The Corrections' by Jonathan Franzen, and I really enjoyed it. His writing is just - he's one of those writers where you just go, 'There are people just meant to be novel writers."
