Simon News – New Tricks – Update


Filed under: Simon News — Tags: , , , @

The new series of  New Tricks is due to air in September.

Looking at Digiguide the first episode will air 10th September, as Simon said his was the second episode so it should air on the 17th September 2010, unless they’ve changed the running order.

Edit: Simon has said his role is very small.

Update 17/09: Simon’s episode will be 8th October, so a little bit more of a wait:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/proginfo/tv/2010/wk40/fri.shtml#fri_tricks

Simon MacCorkindale and Susan GeorgeIN AN INSPIRING AND FRANK INTERVIEW

SIMON MACCORKINDALE AND SUSAN GEORGE

TELL WHY THEY ARE FOCUSING ON THE POSITIVE AS THEY TACKLE HIS ILLNESS TOGETHER

‘Simon is not dying of cancer – he’s living with it, That’s really important’

Actor Simon MacCorkindale is looking a picture of health, riding his quad bike across the Exmoor farm he shares with his actress wife Susan George. His rosy cheeks and positive energy make the knowledge that he is battling cancer all the harder to comprehend.

It was only last month that former Casualty star Simon, 57, revealed the secret he’d been harbouring for three and a half years. During that time, he’d thrown himself into a grueling work schedule. A schedule he now admits was ridiculous given that, when not filming the BBC medical drama, he was undergoing surgery for bowel cancer.

After that, he took on two national tours and the exacting role of Captain Georg Von Trapp in The Sound of Music in the West End, while quietly coping with the knowledge that the cancer had spread to his lungs.

But Simon is not the sort of character to sit and brood over what life throws at him.
Being told he may have only five years to live has made him all the more determined to confound the doctors’ prognosis.

“There’s not a single cancer that exists that someone hasn’t survived, so therefore nothing is incurable,” he says in his distinctive deep voice

“Never underestimate the power of the mind and spirit.”

This positive approach, coupled with homeopathic treatments and a macrobiotic diet has, he says, yielded significant results.

“I have rarely felt fitter or had more energy,” he says. But, right now, he has reduced his workload as he undergoes a six-month course of chemotherapy, a treatment that he believes will shrink the cancer and stop it spreading.

SIMON MACCORKINDALE
Casualty star has terminal cancer

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.

Simon MacCorkindale and Susan GeorgeDoctors Gave Me 5 Years to Live . . But I’ll Beat It

CASUALTY STAR SIMON TALKS MOVINGLY OF THREE YEAR BATTLE WITH CANCER

CASUALTY star Simon MacCorkindale today reveals his secret THREE YEAR battle against cancer—and tells how he aims to beat the disease.

Tenderly holding hands with actress wife Susan George, the TV heart-throb recalls how a REAL doctor working on the BBC hospital drama first spotted his symptoms early and urged him to get a check-up.

And despite being given only five years to live in May 2006, defiant Simon, 57, vows: “I’m going nowhere. I don’t think about a day when it comes to an end.

“It’s not happening. It’s just a bloody nuisance.

“I don’t want people to think I’m sitting here pale, losing weight and my hair and on the way out. I’m not. I’m as active as I’ve ever been.”

Simon MacCorkindale and Susan GeorgeCasualty’s Simon: I’ve got incurable cancer

When Simon MacCorkindale suddenly left TV’s Casualty no one suspected that he was keeping a tragic secret: he had cancer and had been given just five years to live. Now, in this raw and inspiring interview, he and his wife Susan George reveal their daily battle to be strong – and prove doctors wrong

FOR more than three years, he kept it a secret even from his closest friends. Former Casualty star Simon MacCorkindale, who played handsome consultant Harry Harper in the popular BBC series, told very few he was battling cancer.  Even after the disease had spread to his lungs and doctors gave him just five years to live, he and his wife, the iconic Seventies actress Susan George, decided they did not want everyone to know.

‘I didn’t want to make a fuss,’ says Simon. ‘We are very private people and wanted to deal with it on our own.’

Simon News – Simon is NOT on FaceBook


Filed under: Simon News — Tags: , , @

I’ve had a number of emails about this from members from this site saying ‘Simon MacCorkindale’ has added them as a friend on Facebook. I already knew if it was true or not, however I did ask Simon the question. (I think a lot of members also knew the answer too)

Simon MacCorkindale wrote:
No I am not on facebook or any other site other than your official site and the few other unofficial ones that I have no contact with.

I was impressed by that response – I was expecting ‘What’s Facebook?’

Suffice to say I expect the ‘Susan George’ one to be the same.

Simon is not connected with any Facebook profile or group

My lessons from life…

Simon MacCorkindale

The 56-year-old Casualty star and producer reflects on religion, marriage and difficult times

Age is just a number
I don’t think of myself as getting older, so I still behave like a youngster! I haven’t calmed down or slowed down. My passion for acting and producing is as strong as it’s always been and I’m working harder than ever – currently in The Sound of Music. It’s my fourth job in a year and I don’t see why I should slow down just because I’m getting older.
