Simon MacCorkindale lost his battle with cqancer on Oct 14. i never missed an episode of Manimal during its short life. And I will never forget his performance in Death On The Nile.

He was excellent as a villain in one of my favorite episodes of LA FEMME NIKITA with Peta Wilson. RIP

Enjoyed his presence in JAWS 3-D,SWORD AND THE SORCERER,and DEATH ON THE NILE(one of the better Agatha Christie films),for he'll be heavily missed. :( :(

He starred in one of my favorite films, Tony Maylam's RIDDLE OF THE SANDS.

IIRC, he was married to Susan George.

Rest In Peace, sir.

His big scene vs the shark in JAWS 3D was quite creepy and one of the few good things in this film...i remember MacCorkindale mostly for "Manimal" of course,one of my favorite tv series when i was a kid!
So long,Simon.

Yes married to George and seemed like a very happy couple, poor Susan. R.I.P. :(

^ Thanks.

Does anyone know if Simon's RIDDLE OF THE SANDS is currently available on DVD?

Great early film from Tony Maylam, director of THE BURNING and SPLIT SECOND.
