Poirot Star To Play Maxwell

Published on April 19, 2007 with No Comments

Poirot actor David Suchet is to play controversial media tycoon Robert Maxwell in an upcoming TV movie.

The publishing baron drowned while yachting off Tenerife in the Canary Islands in 1991. It was later discovered he’d propped up his newspaper empire by embezzling millions of pounds from pension funds.

But British star Suchet insists the controversial figure was a fascinating man.

“I would say Maxwell had a brilliant business head and I don’t think there’s any doubt that he was an extraordinary businessman, liked or disliked,” he says. “I think – and I’m not alone here – that when Maxwell left our world, there was a certain sense of loss of a huge, colourful figure in our society.”
