Veteran actor David Suchet was honoured with a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (Cbe) medal at Buckingham Palace in London on Wednesday (22Jun11).
The 65 year old, famous for his portrayal of Agatha Christie's detective Hercule Poirot on U.K. TV, was the guest of honour at Queen Elizabeth II's royal residence, where he was honoured for his services to drama by Charles, Prince of Wales.
Suchet says, "(It is) a very great honour. I've had a fantastic career. Although I will be remembered for Poirot I have never been typecast. I'm very rarely me. I'm a character actor and that's the joy and the challenge."
And the star insists he is not ready to retire just yet - as he dreams of more Poirot adventures: "I have done all but five of the stories. My lifelong dream will be releasing the Poirot boxset of all the novels she (Christie) wrote.
"It may happen. There's a green light flickering and I'm waiting for it to be steady. It may be next autumn."
