Simon MacCorkindale: “I’m not jealous of my wife’s past”

Translated from the original French, so readability is a little strange.  Translated by SMCFP Member Nadeia

Simon MacCorkindale seems to be predestined for TV shows. Before he asserted his discrete but effective charm in Falcon Crest, where he seduced Ana-Alicia, for example, the athletic actor had already been noticed thanks to Manimal, in which he could transform into any animal to solve mysteries. Since he left Falcon Crest, Simon MacCorkindale hasn’t appeared in any TV shows. In Counterstrike, a new detective TV show, he plays a member of action team charged to solve mysteries.

SIMON MACCORKINDALE
IN ‘COUNTERSTRIKE’, ELITE CRIME-BUSTERS TAKE ON INTERNATIONAL THUG

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

It won’t win any awards for plausibility but Counterstrike (CTV, Saturdays) is just what the action fan ordered a combination of James Bond, Mission: Impossible and Charlie’s Angels with the accent on pyrotechnics. The plot spins on the exploits of an elite strike team of international crime-fighters.

Christopher Plummer gets star billing, but 39-year-old British actor Simon MacCorkindale is the series’ power- source. Although he has plenty of stage experience, MacCorkindale is best known to Canadian audiences for the movies Death on the Nile and The Sword and the Sorcerer, and for TV roles in I, Claudius, Falcon Crest, and Dynasty. He brings a natural credibility and depth of personality to Peter Sinclair, the dashing team leader recruited because of his savvy as Scotland Yard’s youngest-ever inspector.
