Matthew Macfadyen is a renowned English actor famous for playing the role of Mr. Darcy in Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice (2005). Meanwhile, he got more into media prominence after landing the role of Tom Wambsgans in the HBO drama series Succession.
Since 2018, he has been the main cast of Succession. His role in the series has helped him win a Primetime Emmy Award. Also, he earned two BAFTA Awards and Screen Actors Guild Award. The 48-year-old actor has a huge fan base, and due to the recent episode of Succession, fans are concerned about his physical appearance.
What Is Matthew Macfadyen Height? Physical Appearance
Regarding his physical appearance, Matthew Macfadyen is a tall guy having an impressive height of 6 feet 3 inches which is 1.91 m. Previously, some online sources claimed that Macfadyen’s height was 6 feet 2 inches.
His amazing height is a plus point in his commanding onscreen presence and impressive performances. Likewise, Macfadyen weighs around 85 kg (187 lbs). Superstar’s bio has reported that Matthew’s body measurement is 42-39-15. Moreover, he has black hair and brown eyes.
Is Matthew Macfadyen the Tallest ‘Succession’ Cast?
No, Matthew Macfadyen is not the tallest cast member of Succession. Initially, fans thought that the 6 feet 2 inches tall actor was the tallest crew member of the HBO series. However, there is no fact about it. For your information, Macfadyen is the second-tallest cast of the series.
So, the tallest cast of Succession is Nicholas Braun having a massive height of 6 feet 7 inches which is 2.01 m. However, Braun used to lie about his height. While talking with Insider in 2020, Braun said that he used to lie about his height and used to mention his height below 6 feet 5 inches.
Likewise, he has openly talked about his massive height saying that being tall has been the biggest barrier to getting roles throughout his acting career. Even at the age of 11 or 12, he was tall, and he kept growing. While appearing in Popcorn With Peter Travers in 2019, Nicholas explained the lack of roles proposed to him because of his height. He said,
“If there’s a father and he’s shorter than 6’2, I have no chance of playing his son.”
The above line was pretty logical to some extent. Likewise, Braun also recalled one time on set when his height really got in the way. However, his height now has not been a problem since gaining success in his acting career. Nicholas has been working in the film line since 2001. Some of his notable works can be seen in Sky High, Princess Protection Program, Red State, Prom, The Watch, and Date and Switch.
Apart from the tallest cast member, the shortest cast member of Succession is said to be J. Smith-Cameron, who appears as Gerri Kellman. She reportedly has a height of 5 feet 4 inches (1.63 m). Other casts of the series have an average height which is above 5 feet.
