Anton Zilwicki is not dwarven. He is not especially short nor remarkably tall. He is simply VERY broad and muscular. So much so he creates an impression of someone who is dwarven. Hellen is described as physically solid. The Dutch lady is definitely solid, uncompromisingly solid.

He might not be dwarven in reality, but every description starts with Hall of the Mountain King.

She's really not THAT big. Though I do admit that she tends to look larger in pictures than she does if you watch video of her performing. Besides, Honor is strong and athletic. She is certainly not as well muscled as Thandi, but she is not a emaciated supermodel either. ;)

Ransom is described as blonde and petite. I've always considered her to be objectively attractive, kind of the way a viper can be attractive but you're still very cautious around it. Linda Hunt is in no danger of being considered attractive. Keri Russell has mastered the art of being attractive while projecting an air of serious menace.

Blonde and petite? What about Kristen Bell?

I know it is too late to consider her now that she has been snapped up by the Star Wars franchise but in the pic I saw on the BBC website I thought Daisy Ridley had the facial attributes that rfc described for Honor, lo all those eons ago.

BTW the pic is fixed side by side with Jodie Whittaker
