David Bennent (born 9 September 1966) is a Swiss actor.
When he was 11 he starred in The Tin Drum, which caused much controversy because David was shown in sex scenes with an adult. At age 19, he starred as Honeythorn Gump in the film Legend, co-starring alongside Tom Cruise and Mia Sara.
Bennent has appeared in such plays as Peer Gynt (2004), Die Juden (2003), Michael Kramer (2003), and A Midsummer Night's Dream (2002).
Though he is of comparatively short stature and has played small people in some roles, he is neither a dwarf or a midget.
