He was about 5'6 as Poirot in the 90s. Poor posture might have made him look shorter. In any case, a great thespian. Like Columbo, a diminutive detective with a larger-than-life presence.

This man brought so much excitement into my little Mum's life, as Poirot, that I wouldn't have had the heart to say anything derogatory about him! No, I just couldn't!
I'm sure we all know the thrill of enjoying watching someone we love relishing a programme or film that we ourselves love!
It has to come in the top ten of thrills!
I have read Mr Suchet, actor, is 5ft6, and that will doubtless have been during the 1990's, the latter half.
I'll go with that for my Mum's sake! We watched quite a few TV crime greats during that period!
I also saw him in something that will spring to mind at some stage. He played the Dad of a kidnapped girl. It was a 5 star production, and so good that it is well worth checking out and reporting back on!
I will do so presently, complete with title and cast!

I love Suchet and he was awesome as Poirot but there's no way he anyway near 5ft 7/5ft 8 particularly now. Unless Patrick Stewart is wearing enormous lifts, he looks at least 4 inches taller than Suchet here: Click Here
I suspect Suchet was 5ft 6 maybe 5ft 6.5 when he was younger but has now shrunk to probably 5ft 5 in his old age.

5'6" is a bit low. He was around 5'7" when I met him in 2004. Charming man - surprisingly thick wrists and fingers!

It might be a personality thing. I've met some people in the past where the sheer power of their personality gives them a big image. This is one of reasons why I can't understand why people are so obsessed about height.

Where do you get your information from? I know him personally and quite frankly,he is taller than you are indicating.He is between 5'7" and 5'8".
[Editor Rob: If he's that tall then Ben Kingsley must be 5ft 10 or wears lifts...you certain he's in the 171 range? I look at pictures and struggle to see him stand that tall, but maybe I'm wrong and suchet is this height!]
