Hubert Devine was a non-canonical character who was created for the film adaptation of The Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metropolitan in Series 5 of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot. Hubert was an actor who played the lead character of "Inspector Drake" in the play "Pearls Before Swine" which the impresario Ed Opalsen was putting up. During the party after opening night, he told Poirot that Opalsen was in financial difficulties because he had had a string of failed plays the previous season. He really needed "Pearls Before Swine" to succeed.

Hubert Devine was played by Andrew Carr. This character does not occur in the the original story.
