Benjamin Walker Height

I only play projects with weird interpretations of presidents.

~ Benjamin Walker

American actor and stand-up comedian, Benjamin Walker has appeared in many movies, but he is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in the movie "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter", He is also known for playing the role of the elven king Gil-galad in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

Benjamin Walker was a good choice for playing the role of Abraham Lincoln. Not only because he looks a bit like Abraham Lincoln, but he was also tall like him.

Benjamin Walker once mentioned his height as 6 feet 3 inches. Abraham Lincoln was 6 feet 4 inches tall as all the records suggest. Which makes Mr. Walker what? An inch shorter than Mr. Lincoln... but is Mr. Walker really 6'3"?

After taking a careful look at Benjamin and comparing his height to a few other celebrities, including a real 6 feet 3 inches tall man like Chris Hemsworth, we doubt it.

And indeed, his co-actor from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (who played Abraham Lincoln's wife Mary Todd) once mentioned Benjamin's height as 6'2" or 6'3", and went on to say that Because Mary Todd was much shorter than her, Benjamin Walker wore lifts to make the height difference between them seem a bit more realistic.

The real height of Benjamin Walker is

6'2" or 188 cm

Here are some interesting quotes from Benjamin Walker:

Benjamin Walker on the doubt you feel as an artist.

Even the greatest actors have had dry spells where they've wondered if they were going to work again.

You think of George Washington, this man who was larger than life, and in some ways he was. But at the same time, he's just a person.

The place I feel most at home is when I have health insurance. I really don't care how I get it, whether it's on film, or television or waiting tables, you know?

Benjamin Walker on mother-in-laws.

The only thing more intimidating than a huge international film star is your mother-in-law.

Benjamin Walker on going with the wind.

Maybe I'm naive, but I subscribe to the idea that nobody is actually making strategic decisions about their career. Trying to do that would be like playing three-card monte on Canal Street.

Benjamin Walker on vampire craze.

The vampire craze is kind of fascinating. We're interested in the idea of immorality and I think we're drawn to people or creatures who can give in to those base impulses and just be bad and not feel bad about it.

Benjamin Walker on bullies.

I always felt that if somebody picks on you it's because they're not happy doing what they're doing.

Benjamin Walker on getting in the zone and enjoying every moment of it.

If it doesn't feel like a job and I'm learning something and getting that rush that I get, I don't care if it's behind a camera, on a TV set, or on the moon.

Benjamin Walker on perfect people.

Don't trust somebody that don't have a troubled period.

Benjamin Walker on his dad.

My dad is kind of a rascal, like in a Dickensian sense. He just goes from career to career.

Benjamin Walker on being the complexity of people.

People are still people, and they make their decisions based on their life experiences and their beliefs. You really can't divorce the two. It's important to fight against stereotypes and oversimplifications in very complex people.

Benjamin Walker on learning from the greats.

I'm just looking for things to steal [on working with great actors]. It's like going back to acting school. When you're around people that do it well and you get your head out of your ass, you can really learn something.
