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.
