A British character player of international film and TV productions whose egg-shaped bald head and stocky frame have often lent themselves to villains, David Suchet has won the hearts of many Agatha Christie enthusiasts delivering what has come to the definitive screen portrayal of Christie's Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, a role he played from 1989-93 and again in 1995.
