Actor Simon MacCorkindale has revealed he is dying of lung cancer. The 57-year-old former Casualty star, who has been married to actress Susan George for 25 years, was treated for bowel cancer in 2006, but was told he’d make a full recovery. However, a year later it was found the cancer had spread to his lungs. Doctors have told him he may have just three years to live. “It came as a complete bombshell I thought I had beaten it,” he said. “But I don’t want people to think that I’m on the way out. I’m not – I’m as active as I’ve ever been.
