Excluding henchmen, of course... Is Scaramanga the only main villain in the franchise who is taller than James Bond?

    Javier Bardem is 5'11" so Craig is an inch shorter.

    Mads Mikkesen (aka Le Chiffre) is 6ft.

    And Joe Don Baker was one centimeter taller than Timothy Dalton (1.89 vs 1.88 m).

    For some reason this kind of intrigued me. So I looked on IMDB and checked out the heights of all the Bond actors. And all the main villains they faced.

    Sean Connery - 6'2"

    Joseph Wiseman - 6'
    Robert Shaw - 5'10"
    Gert Frobe - 6'1"
    Adolfo Celi -5'11"
    Donald Pleasance - 5'6"
    Charles Gray - 6'1

    George Lazenby - 6'2"


    Telly Savalas - 5'11"

    Roger Moore - 6'1"

    Yaphett Kotto 6'4"
    Christopher Lee 6'5"
    Curt Jurgens - 6'4"
    Michael Lonsdale - 6'1"
    Julian Glover - 6'2"
    Louis Jourdan - 5'11"
    Christopher Walken 6'

    Timothy Dalton 6'2"

    Jeroen Krabbe - 6'
    Joe Don Baker - 6'2"
    (I still don't know who the main villain is so, I go with both)
    Robert Davi - 6'2"

    Pierce Brosnan 6'2"

    Sean Bean - 5'10"
    Johnathan Pryce - 6'
    Robert Carlyle - 5'7"
    Toby Stephens 5'11"

    Daniel Craig 5'10"

    Mads Mikkelsen - 6"
    Mathieu Amalric - 5'6"
    Javier Bardem - 5'11"
    Christoph Waltz - 5'7"

    Looks like Sir Rog faced the tallest villains, and Pierce and Daniel have tussled with those on the shorter side.

    As for henchmen, interesting that they went from the shortest in TMWTGG to the tallest in TSWLM. I wonder if there was a deliberate decision for that.

    As we just had a midget, now let s have a giant?
