Physical Measurements

Cameron Britton stands at a height of 6 feet 5 inches (1.96 m) and has a body mass of around 275 lbs (124.74 kg).

Was Too Short For 'Mindhunter'

Can you believe that Cameron Britton nearly lost the role of the psychopath serial killer in 'Mindhunter'? He almost failed to be selected for the character because of his height. Yes, it was because of his height (6'5) which lagged him behind in order to impersonate the killer. Edmund, the serial killer, originally stands about 6 feet 9 inches. So, as the director of the Netflix series wanted a person as taller and as the right age as the killer. However, the director couldn't find any other better actor to play the role and had to finalize Britton.

Therefore, if Cameron hadn't been selected for the crime series because of his height, we wouldn't have known him for what he is famous today.
