This interview was carried out with Simon on the 13th February 2008 at the Beck Theater in Hayes. Audio can be found on the forum as well as a video message from Simon filmed at the same time. This is Simon in his own words (i.e. typed word for word what he said)

 

We also got Simon to answer the forum’s ‘Meet a Member’ questions which can be found here

 

001 – From Clare: How have you family (Susan included) influenced your career?
Well I think mostly through their absolute continued unquestioning support for whatever I embark upon. Susan particularly is a very good springboard for various choices that I have made so I do share all the choices that I make. I think that my mum and dad particularly, it was about the honesty of what one was trying to do, and the respect for the audience. Very early on my father taught me about respect for the audience. I’m not sure I was ever really gonna go down in a daft way with it but certainly that I think has been a very important part in how I deal with the public. I’m always giving the time for other people even within a busy schedule.

Action-adventure series is a must-see

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

Counterstrike, a hit series about billionaire industrialist Alexander Addington (Christopher Plummer) whose passion for justice is implemented by a three-member strike team.

Plummer is a film and theatre legend. He has starred and costarred in over 40 feature films, including The Sound of Music, The Man Who Would Be King, The Return of The Pink Panther and Star Trek VI.

As Addington on Counterstrike, he formed his strike team after his wife was kidnapped by an international terrorist organization.

The search for her proved unsuccessful. Nevertheless, he vowed that behind the cover of his financial empire, he would help eliminate criminals who currently find sanctuary in the cracks between existing law enforcement organizations.

Leading the strike team is Peter Sinclair (Simon MacCorkindale) – featured on this week’s cover.

Sinclair, a former Scotland Yard inspector – the youngest in the history of the Yard – is also a legendary hostage negotiator.

MacCorkindale made his stage debut at age eight. From this humble beginning, his love for theatre was born. During the next nine years he wrote, produced, directed and/or acted in some 25 productions at school and with local groups.

Upon leaving high school he was accepted as a drama student at Studio 68 of Theatre Arts in London, England. And, as luck would have it, by the end of his first year he was signed to play a leading role in George Bernard Shaw’s The Dark Lady of the Sonnets.

After a number of appearances in the regional theatres in England, he made his West End debut in the highly-acclaimed 1974 production of Pygmalion.

TV Guide (Can) – 11-17 December 1993



Simon MacCorkindale as Peter Sinclair in CounterstrikeTeacher’s Pet

In this week’s Counterstrike (Saturday on CTV), Simon MacCorkindale played coach to rocker and neophyte actress Latoya Jackson—a bit of “stunt casting” that works, says MacCorkindale, because her role was tailored to her “extraordinary look” and “natural abilities.” In the show, Jackson (left, with MacCorkindale) plays a fashion maven with deadly designs on her models for the most bloodcurdling of reasons. “It’s a weird,  off-the-wall” episode, MacCorkindale admits, but Jackson “pitched right into it. She listened and watched, and she learned very quickly. I’ve seen a lot of people who’ve been in the business for years who didn’t have the relaxation and the wit to learn the technique as quickly as she did.”

Elite anti-crime team works to uphold justice
Got an international conflict that needs to be handled with a delicate – but effective – touch? The Counterstrike team is ready for action

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

They’re a team with a mission. They work behind the scenes, to apprehend criminals who might otherwise be above the law. They also work with an efficiency that can only come from being the best in their respective fields.

They are the Counterstrike team, an elite anti-crime ‘strike-team’ consisting of a multi-billionaire industrialist, a world-renowned journalist, an ex-SEAL, and a former Scotland Yard inspector and hostage negotiator. Counterstrike, now well into its second season, airs 9:30 pm Saturdays on NTV.

The action-adventure series blasted onto the scene in November of 1991, with an episode featuring a brutal terriorist kidnapping. Ultra-wealthy Alexander Addington (played by Christopher Plummer) was shot and his wife kidnapped by a group of international criminals.
