Personal Quote:

When I was eighteen and not sure whether I wanted to be an actor, I realized that a playwright has no voice without an actor. That's my reason for acting: to get that character as right as possible for my writer. And I have never changed my philosophy. See more »

Trivia:

Renowned for extensively researching the personality and character of each role he plays. To prepare for the role of "Hercule Poirot" on Agatha Christie: Poirot (1989), Suchet has carefully read every description Agatha Christie ever wrote about the character, and adopted a soft French accent.
