Ellie’s height, as depicted in the video games, has her standing at 5’3″ throughout the initial game when she first meets Joel at the age of fourteen. She ends up growing a little during the time skip that occurs between The Last of Us 1 and The Last of Us 2, with the latter game having her reach a height of 5’5″ at nineteen years old.

Besides, even if it did look slightly off, there are a bunch of camera angles and tricks that can be used to alter the perception of height. If anything, Bella Ramsey’s height actually helps her fit into her role of Ellie even more so, as she’s so close to matching that of her in-game counterpart
