‘I hear her height is something of interest’
Capcom just tossed another lore-infused ember into the Lady Dimitrescu fandom fire.
In a message regarding a “very curious fact you may have wondered about,” Resident Evil Village art director Tomonori Takano said the tall vampire antagonist and her daughters got “a fair amount of attention, far more than we anticipated,” and the team is “extremely happy” fans latched onto them.
He also divulged her height: “if you include her hat and high heels, she’s 2.9m (approximately 9’6″) tall.”
Your love for Lady Dimitrescu is loud and clear. ?

In the lead-up to Village, I’ve been revisiting past Resident Evil games, as is the time-honored tradition. In the case of Resident Evil 7, which I’ve already burned through countless times before (in and out of VR), I finally started messing around with Jack’s 55th Birthday, a kooky side-mode about running through stages to find food, killing Molded to extend your timer, and feeding the old man as quickly as possible. I am obsessed. In fact, I’m taking a break from S-rank attempts to write this article.
While the pre-release cycle for Village has been fixated on Lady Dimitrescu – to say nothing of Punished Chris and the werewolf gang – I hope beyond hope that Capcom doesn’t skimp on the game’s side activities. Whether that’s pack-ins or paid DLC, I don’t really mind, just so long as they’re entertaining.
I know there have been some less-than-ideal missteps, but damn am I happy to be a fan right now.
