Frequently Asked Questions

Did Simon leave Casualty because of his illness, as mentioned in several newspapers

I can only answer this from what I know about Simon and it’s mostly and educated guess – tho I’m fairly sure I correct

I really don’t believe it to be true. When we did our first interview with Simon in very early 2007 which was before he found out he had terminal cancer he said he felt his time on Casualty was coming to an end.

I really don’t believe he left because of his illness, I feel he would have left when he did even if he didn’t find out how ill he was a few months later. I don’t like the way some of the articles have phrased it, as it makes him look like a quitter – which Simon isn’t

Newspapers are trying to sell and story and will write whatever will sell the most

This was Simon’s first musical performance

On The Wright Stuff (26/09/2008) Simon MacCorkindale mentioned his ‘Fan Club’ had bought him an elephant, any details on this?

Yes, the members of this site adopted Simon an orphaned baby elephant for his birthday February 2008, with The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

This is something we are planning to continue for both Simon and the members of this site for as long as possible – as Simon said ‘it’s our elephant’

Susan George has now taken over ‘ownership’ of this elephant and we will still continue to support him as he grows up

Where can I find DVDs on Counterstrike (Force de Frappe)?

Unfortunately this series has never been officially released on DVD, nor video. I hope that it does get released in the future as it is a very good series.  However Youtube seems to have a few episodes available

    Good Morning, Shelli (is it Shelli? or Shelliwood? or something completely different?)

    my name is Ingrid Gabriel, I’m living in Vienna – and therefore only have limited access to british
    broadcasting – right now BBC prime (my only source; sigh) graciously enough repeats episodes of Casualty with gorgeous AND
    talented Simon!! YAY! so I started to google and found your site. BRILLIANT site!!! Really Fanfabulous!!!
    Absolutely addictiv!

    Which means, now I want to join a Fanclub. Do you know how I could manage that? Is there a way of being on
    a list or receiving a fanletter in order to learn about Mr. MacCorkindale’s theatre work in advance?
    I’d absolutely love to see him on stage and realised while browsing your site I missed him by a hair’s
    breath (is that the correct phrase?) in his first musical. grrrr to me!!

    so to never make that mistake again… fanclub! Can you help me?
    thank you so much
    love from Vienna
