Alexander Dreymon is a German actor who is known for taking the leading role in The Last Kingdom, Uhtred of Bebbanburg. He plays the warrior who was born a Saxon but was raised by Danes in the Netflix series. Fans are keen to know Dreymon’s height and Express.co.uk has the answer.

How tall is Alexander Dreymon?

The Uhtred star stands at about 1.78m tall, with some sources saying he is between 5ft 8inches and 5ft 10inches.

In the series he comes across as a very strong and courageous warrior, and his height helps with this.

Fans have commented on the casting of Uhtred and they are pleased Dreymon was given the role.

One fan said on celebheights.com: “I don’t understand the criticism of Dreymon’s casting, he was a great choice for Uhtred.

“Admittedly, the similarly 5ft 9inches David Dawson (King Alfred) is the true centrepiece of the series (he’s astonishing), but Dreymon is quite good.

“Few others would have shared his magnetism in the role. Dawson may be the exact same height, in fact, but there’s very little in photos to distinguish their respective heights relative to one another.”

However, in The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell, Uhtred has dirty blond hair and supposedly stands over six feet tall.

So with this in mind, some fans felt brunette star Dreymon may not have been the best choice.

Another fan said: “On face value is totally miscast as Uhtred of Bebbanburg who is described in the books as over six foot and blonde, but does a decent performance in the show.”

The German-born actor has also starred in American Horror Story: Coven and Christopher and His Kind.

He is well-travelled and is fluent in German, English and French, having grown up in the US, France and Switzerland.

Besides his acting career, he is experienced in martial arts and learned to ride horses, a skill which has served him well in The Last Kingdom.

He studied acting in both Paris and London, at the Drama Centre London, before his first big roles in 2011.

In terms of his relationships, he was known to have dated Greek actress Tonia Sotiropoulou between 2010 and 2012.

However, they are no longer together and the 37-year-old actor has been very private about his relationships since.

Following his work in The Last Kingdom, he has starred in a number of films including Horizon Line, Heartlock and Guys Reading Poems.

The star is on Instagram and he shared a video of himself as Uhtred as part of a podcast for The Last Kingdom.

He stars alongside Rowley and Fedaravicius in the podcast and fans have commented on their relationship.

One fan said: “True friendship chemistry between the three of them, it’s no wonder they are so bloody brilliant on camera.”

Dreymon has mentioned his workout routine in a number of interviews, and he said during lockdown he set up an assault course in his garden.

He is believed to weigh around 187lbs, which is equal to more than 13 stone or 85kgs.

Dreymon is a fan-favourite in The Last Kingdom due to his physique and looks.

One fan said on Twitter: “#AlexanderDreymon could get the business all day every day. But I’m sure he already knows that.”

Another fan said: “I feel lost. We’ve finally finished @TheLastKingdom season four and I’m not quite sure what I’ll do now I won’t see Alexander Dreymon’s face every night. And what a delightful face it is.”
