David Suchet


  1. Ian McDiarmid, Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, 1982.
  2. Ian McKellen, Scandal, 1988.   Various UK actors, Suchet among them, shied away from playing  the UK government minister John Profumo at the heart of the Christine Keeler affair (found sharing a London call-girl with a Russian spy and then lying about it in Parliament in 1963). Poor souls, they feared losing possible knighthoods.  Didn’t bother McKellen knighted treee years later. As of this writing (September 2015) Suchet is still waiting…
  3. Mads Mikkelsen, Casino Royale, 2006.
