David Suchet - David Suchet Set To Lift Lid On Career In Special Theatre Series

Veteran British actor David Suchet is heading to the London stage to give fans an intimate insight into his career.

The star's final bow as Agatha Christie's super sleuth Hercule Poirot - after 25 years on Tv - recently aired in the U.K. and now the actor will open up about his most famous role, and his other work, in Encounters: Performers On Performance.

Suchet will sit with arts journalist Fiona Lindsay to discuss his time on stage and Tv for a one-off special at the Lyric Theatre next year (14).

Comic Lenny Henry, who won acclaim for his turn in Shakespeare's Othello in 2009, will also sit down for a session.

Producer Kim Poster tells Britain's Daily Mail, "It's an intimate conversation about an actor's life and craft in the entertainment business.

"The artist in question will dictate whether clips are shown, or whether they just sit and talk with Fiona. It's very much done on a bespoke basis."

The series will start in January (14) and run for six months, with new stars set to be announced in due course.
