Simon MacCorkindale - 1052-2010

Tip of the hat this afternoon, as we learn of the death of British actor Simon MacCorkindale, who passed away from bowel cancer yesterday. Mr MacCorkindale appeared in a number of films during the 70’s and 80’s, including the Agatha Christie plotted film Death On The Nile, The Sword & The Sorcerer, and Jaws 3D (in 1983). His vast television credits include appearances on shows a diverse as The Dukes Of Hazzard, Fantasy Island, Falcon Crest, Counterstrike, Relic Hunter and, most recently, New Tricks.

Mr MacCorkindale was married to fellow actress Susan George, and they had no children.

Mr MacCorkindale was 58.

We want to hear from you!!! Leave us your thoughts here!!!

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
