Douglas Henshall height: How tall is Shetland's Jimmy Perez actor?


Share post:

Shetland fans had been waiting a year for the next series to begin on BBC One and earlier this month, they were thrilled to see its return. The detective drama, once again set in the most remote part of the UK, once again sees the team investigating another head-scratching case, this time, it involved the disappearance of Connor Cairns (played by Nicholas Nunn). Of course, as the series has gone on, it has quickly grown far more complicated than first meets the eye.

How tall is Shetland star Douglas Henshall?

Shetland’s dynamic team is led by DI Jimmy Perez who is portrayed by Scottish actor Douglas Henshall.

Apart from Shetland, he has been in Primeval, Dorian Grey, Outlander, In Plain Sight, The Secret of Crickley Hall and Collision, just to name a few.

According to Celeb Heights, Douglas Henshall stands at 5ft 10, the equivalent to 1.79m.

It is thought Henshall is taller than a lot of his co-stars in the BBC drama.

While Tosh won’t be leaving in series seven, actor Henshall will be calling it a day on Shetland.

He announced his exit earlier this year, declaring this would be his final outing, despite the drama returning for season eight.

Already, Henshall has got another series in the works, which he is currently filming.

The drama is called Palomino and will see a British teacher’s life unravel after being recognised in a Spanish supermarket robbery.

For now at least, there is still the end of Shetland’s latest series to focus on.
