It took a little subterfuge to busy around all day organising with her in the house but with my girlfriend Peggy helping me and another Ann, preparing a sumptuous supper in the back kitchen, we managed to keep the secret.The evening was a very special one and I will always remember the smile on mum’s beautiful face. My late husband Simon would have been so proud.

Recent interview with Susan

I met my Simon for the very first time at a charity benefit and we became the best of friends for years after. So I married my soul mate and hand through life. He was a stunning-looking man, but the true essence of Simon was his heart, acres wide and full of jewels.

Daily Mail, Weekend – 9th March 2013



Susan speaks again about loosing Simon and how she is coping with the loss

Everywhere around the house there are framed photos of her and Simon entwined in each other’s arms.

‘I feel as if it were only yesterday that he and I were sitting here together,’ she says. She stops and turns her head to gaze out of the window as her large blue eyes start to fill with tears.

Then, recovering her composure, she continues to talk about the loss of the love of her life. ‘I know Simon lives on with me in everything I do. I also know he’d never want it to be too much for me, because he had so much belief in me. Now my whole  purpose in life is to follow the dream  we both had. A lot of people expected  I wouldn’t carry on with the horses  after what happened. But I couldn’t stop.’

Bath Chronicle – 16th October 2010



In 2004 he presented a series on the area of the West he fell in love with – Exmoor.

He and his wife owned over 50 horses at their Arabian stud farm in the heart of the national park.

When the call came, asking if he was available to narrate Exmoor Encounters, he jumped at the chance.

He said at the time: “I’ve done a lot of voiceovers but this one is special to me because it’s about an area in which I live – and love.

Simon MacCorkindale 1952-2010

This is a lovely article about Simon from someone who recorded some of his voice over work

He had a rich, warm voice, full of authority, but had the rare ability to make it flick from friendly to menacing within the same sentence. His range was truly excellent.

Goodbye, Simon MacCorkindale

This is an interesting article on Simon’s small role in the film Wing Commander.  This has info about cut lines and a good discussion between a few fans of the film

The man only had a bit part with three lines in the whole film, and it still manages to be one of the most memorable performances.

Simon MacCorkindale – 1952 – 2010

Yet Simon, with his genial demeanour and infectious boyish enthusiasm, was utterly behind it. A thoroughly likeable man, possessed of great generosity of spirit, he was a source of constant of encouragement at the time

Birmingham Post – 9th April 2008



Review: Sleuth, Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton

It seems appropriate that one of the characters in Sleuth spends a significant amount of time in a clown suit, as this production milks the comic potential of Anthony Shaffer’s twisted script.

On the opening night, underwear and cushions were hurled about with reckless abandon, threatening to bring down bits of the set. And Michael Praed finally fell foul of his size 27 feet in a pratfall behind the sofa, which appeared to leave him and co-star Simon MacCorkindale as convulsed with laughter as the audience. Whether by accident or intent it was as well executed as the rest of this slickly performed show, which also relies on deliciously barbed dialogue for its humour.

Birmingham Post – 2nd April 2008



From CAT scans to cat and mouse

Casualty star Simon MacCorkindale tells Alison Jones why he has packed away his stethoscope and returned to the stage.

It is always a challenge following in the footsteps of an actor who has become irrevocably associated with a part.

Particularly if that actor casts as long a shadow as the late Sir Laurence Olivier.

In the recent film remake of the thriller Sleuth, director Kenneth Branagh rather cleverly got round the problem by having Michael Caine swop roles.

In the 1972 Joseph L Mankiewicz version, Caine played Milo Tindle, the upstart young lover of Olivier’s wife who is unwillingly drawn into an elaborate battle of wits.

In 2007 it was Caine’s turn to play the vengeful, cuckolded husband (Andrew Wyke), with Jude Law repeating another Caine role after already starring in Alfie.

For the stage production currently doing the regional rounds, comparisons to Larry are avoided by the fact that Andrew, played by Simon MacCorkindale, has effectively been aged down and Milo, played by Michael Praed, aged up.

Bucks Free Press – 10th January 2008



Playing a psychological game

ACTOR Simon MacCorkindale loves nothing more than a nail-bitingly good, edge-of-the-seat thriller, so he’s absolutely buzzing with enthusiasm ahead of his latest play, Sleuth, which opens in Windsor later this month.

First written by Anthony Shaffer, the Tony Award-winning play revolves around Simon’s character, Andrew Wyke, an immensely successful mystery writer, who is fascinated by psychological games and game-playing.

He lures his wife’s lover, Milo Tindle (played by Michael Praed), to his countryside manor house, where he subjects him to a tangled web of intrigue and manipulation. But ultimately nothing turns out quite as it seems.

Simon MacCorkindale, back on television as Casualty’s new consultant, has been delivering foals rather than lines of late…

This site looks like it’s no longer online, so here is the full article.

I was never too comfortable as a young actor and always felt that my best time in the business would be around now – I’m 50 – through to the age of 65 I’ve been doing a lot of production work in the past ten years, as well as writing and directing, so the opportunity to do something very visible – in a great part – was much too good to miss My character in Casualty [new consultant Harry Harper] is a disciplinarian, slightly old-fashioned, but pretty cool I’ve been filming since February and it’s a really nice show to be in – egos are at a minimum.
