Death on the Nile Characters

Meet the Cast


Hercule Poirot

Celebrated Belgian sleuth HERCULE POIROT (Kenneth Branagh) is brilliant, quick-witted and charmingly self-deprecating. Chivalrous and innately kind and obsessed with his personal grooming, he enjoys the dispensations that come from a life spent socializing amongst the elite. A keen observer, he savors any opportunity to probe the mindset of a murderer.


Linnet Ridgeway

The joyful, stylish and obscenely wealthy LINNET RIDGEWAY (Gal Gadot) comes from a prominent and well-respected family. Gracious and self-assured, she has never known the intoxicating and all-consuming sensation that comes from true love, and she has made a number of enemies because of her wealth over the years.


Jacqueline de Bellefort

JACQUELINE DE BELLEFORT (Emma Mackey) is attractive, witty and smarter than she lets on, thanks to her boarding school education. Born into French aristocracy, but presently poor, she is head over heels in love with Simon Doyle.


Andrew Katchadourian

Born in India and educated at Oxford, ANDREW KATCHADOURIAN (Ali Fazal) is Linnet Ridgeway’s suave and handsome “cousin” and childhood friend, whose law office handles all of the Ridgeway family affairs.


Rosalie Otterbourne

Salome Otterbourne’s niece, ROSALIE OTTERBOURNE (Letitia Wright), manages her aunt’s singing career. Well educated and world travelled, she is sophisticated, witty and ambitious.



Handsome, charming and good-humored, BOUC (Tom Bateman) is an aimless but lovable friend to Hercule Poirot.


Euphemia Bouc

A renowned painter, Bouc’s mother, EUPHEMIA BOUC (Annette Bening), is entitled, disdainful and extremely protective of her son.
