Meet the good looking actor who’s found a style to suit him Simon MacCorkindale seems set to prove that you can’t judge a book by its cover. One glance at the debonair six footer might suggest that he earns his living wheeling and dealing at the Stock Exchange, commanding a battalion, or doing something important in banking. But Mr MacCorkindale who has a clutch of challenging roles under his (smart leather) belt that many an actor would be proud of is proof that, these days, you simply can’t go by appearances alone. In fact, Simon did almost follow in family footsteps and go into the Army. For generations, MacCorkindale’s have automatically gone into the Army and indeed, much of Simon’s childhood was spent travelling the world with his parents, moving from posting to posting.
