Susan George's tribute to Simon MacCorkindale

Monday October 18, 2010

In a moving tribute, actress Susan George remembered Casualty actor Simon MacCorkindale, after he passed away on Friday.

"To me he was simply the best of everything, and I loved him with all my heart.

"He will live on in me forever," she said of her husband, who lost a four-and-a-half year battle with cancer.

The 58-year-old British Death on the Nile actor built a 30-year career on stage, film and TV.

Crossing the Atlantic, he became famous in Hollywood in the Seventies, winning roles in Dynasty and The Dukes of Hazzard.

In 2002 he joined the cast of Casualty, and was a nationally recognised face for his role as consultant Harry Harper.
