Emma Mackey Height
Emma’s height is quite a controversial topic. Celebheight claims she is 5 feet 7 inches while Popbuzz stated her height as 5 feet 2 inches. The Celeb Portal also commented on Emma’s height saying she is 5 feet 8.5 inches tall! Looks like nobody other than Emma actually knows her height!
Roles in Movies and Series
Apart from her role as Maeve, Emma has only starred in one other TV horror movie called Badger Lane! However, ever since Sex Education aired, the actress has received offers for several movies and TV shows. She has successfully managed to bag big roles including an important role in Death on the Nile. She will be acting alongside DC’s Wonder Woman Gal Galdot in the movie which is set to premiere in early 2022.
In January 2018, Emma Mackey was rumored to be dating Dan Whitlam, a fellow actor. Unfortunately, rumors of them breaking up in 2020 surfaced after Emma deactivated her account.

Emma Mackey Lookalike
Emma Mackey and the suicide squad actress Margot Robbie look almost exactly alike! In fact, Margot told fans in an interview with BBC one that she has been mistaken as Emma Mackey several times in Australia.
The resemblance between the two is uncanny. From their platinum blonde hair to their wide smiles to their expressive eyebrows, the two actresses look like spitting images of each other.
However, Emma Mackey doesn’t like being compared to Margot. She told the Independent in an interview “I genuinely just don’t see it at all. Like, it’s lovely to be compared to Margot Robbie, but mostly I’d rather people focus on the jobs that we’re both doing rather than what we look like.” She also said that she wishes people would stop the comparison!
