How tall are Harry Potter and its characters?

You all know the first love of Lord Voldemort, who gave Harry’s forehead a scar. Potter is the main character of the series, who is courageous, good-natured, and the one who defeats the Dark Lord.

It’s Leviosa, Not Leviosaaa! She is the prettiest, clever, books smart, and is none other than my first love Hermoine Granger. She is the friend of Harry and Ron, who uses her skills as a librarian to gather all the information necessary to kill the devil sorcerer Lord Voldemort. Men out there, let me tell you her height, which I feel is not a parameter for falling in love, but to flex as a Potter fan it is.

#3 Ron Weasley | Immature & Funny

#3 Ron Weasley ( Immature And Funny)

I still can’t believe that Hermoine Married this guy (I wish that I haven’t underrated myself). Jokes apart, Ron is known as the funniest character in the whole series, who proved the meaning of true friendship. He helped his friends Hermoine & Harry to defeat Lord Voldemort. Now, that you know the height of Hermoine, let me tell you the height of her sweet husband Ron. (Oh! God, why is it not me?)

He is the best man of Harry and his team and even brought Harry to Hogwarts. Rubeus Hagrid is a half-human and half-giant who settles all the small businesses of the school. Despite his giant character, he is very cool, calm, and friendly with everyone. I know you are confused with a query that if he’s a giant, what should be his expected height? Forget about the expected height, I will tell you his real height.

  • Rubeus Hagrid is 8 ft 6 in (2.59 m) tall.

The one with no nose. (so sorry for the joke, Dark Lord) Lord Voledermot is the greatest sorcerer and the main villain of the Harry Potter series who killed Harry’s parents when he was an infant and gave Harry his birthmark, The big Z on his forehead. His height is really not that important to know, but now that we have informed you about Potter’s height, you need to know the height of his lover too.

#6 Draco Malfoy (Cowardly Bully)

Resembling the looks of Eminem; (I am slim shady, and I am the real shady) Draco Malfoy is an overly confident and mouthy guy who is also the foe of Harry Potter. Draco is characterized as a bully who tricks and hurts people to get whatever he wants. He has already crossed all the heights of being an a*s, so knowing the height of this guy is much needed.

  • Draco Malfoy is 5ft 8 ½ (1.74 m) tall.

#7 Profesor Severus Snape | The Half-Blood Prince

#7 Profesor Severus Snape (The Half-Blood Prince)

In his life, he has gone through so much and has a very heart-touching story buried deep inside him. Yes, you got it right he is Professor Severus Snape, who shows himself as a very hard shell, but deep inside is soft as jelly. He always seemed tall in all the parts of the franchise than the other character, so what is his height is the real question.

  • Professor Severus Snape is 6’1″ (1.85 m) tall.

He doesn’t have a big role in the series but got recognition when he confronted Lord Voldemort. He was killed by Peter Pettigrew on the order of the Dark Lord. Though he has a short role in the series, he was shown as a great athlete who became a good friend of Harry. If he is an athlete his height would be something of a concern for the girls, let’s know the actual meters.

#9 Albus Dumbledore | The Headmaster 

#9 Albus Dumbledore (The Headmaster) 

Expert in non-verbal spells and the primary crush of Professor Minerva McGonagall (don’t laugh please!) Albus Dumbledore is one of the main characters in the Harry Potter movie series. He is considered the best sorcerer and most powerful white magician who was also the person who brought Tom Riddles, aka Lord Vodermot, to Hogwarts. Dumbledore’s height should not be a point of discussion, but now that we are discussing everyone else’s height, how can we leave this white haired professor.

  • Albus Dumbledore is 6’0 or (1.83 m) tall.

I love telling people about my stories, stories that play in my mind only. When I am writing, there is no limit to how far I can go swimming in this deep ocean of words. Reading and writing are the two things that help in organizing my messed up thoughts in a formative way. Come along on this journey with me as I write and you read the stories that I have to tell!
