Simon MacCorkindale and Susan GeorgeBeast Get The Beauty

Manimal star is set to marry Susan George

BRITISH actor Simon MacCorkindale is about to take on the most important role of his life – husband to beautiful actress Susan George. They plan to marry as soon as his busy Hollywood schedules permit.

“We spend every spare moment together,” says Simon, 32, who shares a love-nest in plush Beverly Hills with Susan. It’s his second marriage – the first, to actress Fiona Fullerton, broke up after Simon made it clear he wanted to be a superstar – but it’s Susan’s first trip down the aisle.

Film Review – January 1984



Simon MacCorkindale as Philip FitzRoyce in Jaws 3LIFE’S FAR FROM SIMPLE FOR SIMON

IAIN F. McASH interviews SIMON MacCORKINDALE, a star of ‘JAWS 3-D’, who hasn’t stopped working since he went to Hollywood three years ago

Husky British actor Simon MacCorkindale denies he has any affinity for sharks, yet admits that the voracious creatures have loomed large in his flourishing career these past twelve months.

He stars in Jaws 3-D which opens in Britain in time for Christmas, and he has the name part in a new American tv series called “Manimal” as a crime-busting professor with the advantage of being able to catch the bad guys by transforming himself at will into a panther, snake, bird – or even a shark!

A Visit To Jaws 3D Set

By Tisha Shelden (as told to Lonna Poland)

Ed note: One of our members, Tisha Shelden, who lives near Orlando, Florida where Jaws 3D was filming, was able to spend some time on the movie set.  She has consented to share her adventures with the club.  Thanks, Tisha

Arriving on the set at 6:00 am, I was impressed at how incredibly cheerful and friendly everyone was.  Everyone said hello to Simon and cast and crew alike seemed to like him.

Simon Says – Issue 2 – Part 9 of 9



More Mayhem – Danger on the “JAWS ” Set

It seems that Simon faces mayhem no matter where he goes.  Recently, while filming Jaws-3D in Orlando, FL, he had a slight mishap.  Simon’s character, Philip Fitzroyce, is very much the daredevil photographer.  He seems to thrive on thinking up dangerous ways to get the required shots and camera angles, often using very dangerous and acrobatic methods.  Simon, in character as Philip, had planned an unique way to photograph Shamu the killer whale.  Shamu would be leaping high out of the water, while at the same time allowing his trainer to jump off a platform onto his nose, whale and trainer completing the dive together.  With a rope tied around him for safety, Simon/Philip planned to get the shot by coming up behind the trainer on the platform and then leaning way over the edge, while his partner, Jack, (P.H. Morairty) pulled the rope taut to keep him from falling over.  (The best laid plans of mice and men!)

Tantalizing Tidbits – Jaws 3D

Do we really have to wait six whole months to find out what perils await Simon in JAWS 3D?  Yes, because the movie is not set for release until July 1983.  However, Simon has reveled a few things about the story and the character he plays in JAWS, and we hope these comments will serve to whet you appetite for the film.

Simon revealed, “My character in JAWS 3D is called Philip Fitzroyce, 16th Earl of Haddenfield.  He is an adventure from England’s aristocracy and makes a living out of shooting spectacular underwater films.  He is a young Jacques Cousteau with a devil-may-care attitude.  He wears safari suits, rugby shirts, a sharks tooth necklace and an outrageous hat.  He’s a celebrity and knows it, and doesn’t care what he looks like as long as he’s having fun.”
