Simon MacCorkindale passes away, God Bless

God Bless. Death on the Nile is one of my all time faves, and who could forget Manimal.

…Actor Simon MacCorkindale, who starred in BBC One’s Casualty, has died aged 58 after suffering from cancer. His publicist, Max Clifford, said he died in the arms of his wife, actress Susan George, on Thursday night in a London Clinic.

He spent six years on the BBC medical drama as Dr Harry Harper. He was also known for starring in 1980s series Manimal and Falcon Crest and appearing in the 1978 Agatha Christie film Death on the Nile.

Ms George said: “No-one could have fought this disease any harder than he did since being diagnosed four years ago. “He fought it with such strength, courage and belief. Last night, he lost this battle, and he died peacefully in my arms.

“To me, he was simply the best of everything, and I loved him with all my heart. He will live on in me forever.”…
