GTA 5 Characters Guide: Heights, Ages and Real Life Actors

GTA 5 Characters Guide: Heights, Ages and Real Life Actors

Grand Theft Auto 5 bucked the trend of previous game entries by introducing three playable characters in the game, instead of one.

This was received well by the players as the game became popular quickly. This is because the characters and their stories were carefully architected.

Their stories perfectly overlap with each other with their paths crossing on numerous occasions. Consequently, they get closer to each other and build trust.

Rockstar Games, the developers of GTA 5 have done a great job at building other in-game characters, too.

Each of the three main characters’ lives consists of a great number of other characters; friends, family, accomplices, or even strangers.

These antagonists are also built really well and it can be seen they interlink with the main characters very naturally.

Here is the height, age, and birthday information of the important characters in GTA 5.

In the main storyline of GTA 5, his age is 49 years old, 4 years older than Michael De Santa. If he were to live till Present Day (2022), his age would be 55 years.

Trevor is a terrifying psychopath who used to rob banks and go on heists with Michael. But when Michael faked his death, he lost all contact with him and moved to a trailer near Sandy Shore.

Trevor becomes aware of Michael’s fraudulent death after Michael participates in The Jewel Store Job. This is because Michael leaves his signature dialogue.

The voice actor of Trevor Philips is Steven Ogg who provided the voice and motion capture for the character. Trevor’s physical appearance is based a lot on Steven Ogg.

Franklin Clinton

Franklin is the third and final playable character who is the shortest of the three at 6’0″ (183cm).

Franklin is a young mind who wants to do big in the criminal business. He lives with his aunt but neither of them like the other.

We see him boosting cars at the beginning for Simeon Yetarian during which he unintentionally steals a car that belonged to Michael’s son. That’s how they get to know each other.

The character of Franklin Clinton is portrayed by Shawn Fonteno. He has also had a minor role in GTA San Andreas.

Coincidently, his cousin Christopher Bellard was the voice actor of CJ, the main character of GTA San Andreas.

The resemblance is uncanny!
