Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I think it's very dangerous, the idea of celebrity - you have to be constantly controversial to maintain the status of celebrity. Reality TV is the death of entertainment - it's just mindless TV but popular because of its voyeuristic nature, and people are very voyeuristic. See more »

Trivia:

He is renowned for extensively researching the personality and character of each role he plays. To prepare for the role of Hercule Poirot on Poirot (1989), Suchet has carefully read every description Agatha Christie ever wrote about the character, and adopted a soft Belgian accent. See more »
