How tall is Naya Rivera? Naya Rivera is 5 feet, 5 inches tall, according to her official IMDB biography, and while that hardly makes her a giant, she’s a towering figure of in the eyes of “Glee” fans. The singer and actress owes much of her fame to the character of Santana Lopez, who she’s portrayed on the hit Fox series since 2009. Rivera has become especially famous since it was revealed Santana is a lesbian, and that’s made this 5-foot, 5-inch beauty seem even taller to LGBT advocates.

Born in Valencia, California, on January 12, 1987, Naya has been acting and modeling since she was just a shorty, and her first major TV role — Hillary Winston on the sitcom “The Royal Family” — came when she was four years old. After “The Royal Family” was cancelled, Naya spend the 10-year stretch from 1992 to 2002 playing bit parts on various series, among them “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” “Bay Watch,” and “Family Matters.” Her big break came in 2009, when she signed on to play Santana on “Glee.” The musical comedy has proved a massive hit, and after she sang her first solo song during the second season, she became a major player — as well as a fan favorite.

How tall is Naya Rivera compared to her “Glee” cast mates? At 5 feet, 5 inches tall, she’s got a couple of inches on Lea Michele, who stands 5 feet, 3 inches. Unfortunately, she comes up just shy of Dianna Agron, who stands 5 feet, 6 inches. Of course, they’ll both need to hit a major growth spurt — or buy some really tall shoes — if they want to see eye to eye with Jane Lynch. She stand 6 feet tall, according to most websites. Interestingly, Lynch is two inches taller than Naya’s ex-fiance, Big Sean, who checks in at 5 feet, 8 inches. The pair called off their engagement in April 2014, and while many accused Sean of cheating, he denies the allegations.
