“The more I did so [spent time reading Poirot stories], the more the little man entranced me. There were so many foibles, so many little habits that some people found hard to understand, so many mannerisms - his need for order, his dislike for the country, his determination to carry a silver ‘Turnip’ pocket watch wherever he went. Each was as idiosyncratic as the next, and each was fascinating. [..] I started to write my private list of Poirot’s habits and character. I called it my 'dossier of characteristics’. It ended up five pages long and detailed ninety-three different aspects of his life. I have the list to this day - in fact, I carried it around on the set with me throughout all my years as Poirot, just as I gave a copy to every director I worked with on a Poirot film.” - David Suchet, Poirot and Me
[About the plot of Captain America: The Winter Soldier]:It’s more about- instead of Captain America adjusting to…you know, technology, he’s not amazed at the internet. It’s more about understanding the company that he works for, it’s more about understanding- in order to provide the safety that we ensure, you may have to bend the rules, given modern technology. It’s a grey area in terms of what’s right and what’s wrong and I think that given the fact that Steve Rogers is from the forties, it’s a question of morality that bumps him for a bit.
