David Suchet, CBE (born 2 May 1946 in London) is an English actor with an extensive career on stage and television.

He is most famous for playing Agatha Christie's literary hero, the great Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, in the long-running ITV series and television films.

His portrayal of Poirot is considered by many as the definitive for the character, and he is to this day the only actor who has played in adaptations of every story of the Poirot canon, doing so over nearly twenty-five years.
