Simon MacCorkindale Has Died At Age 58

British actor Simon MacCorkindale, who starred in the BBC series Casualty and the U.S. primetime soap Falcon Crest, has died of cancer at age 58.

Publicist Max Clifford said MacCorkindale died on Thursday of bowel cancer in a London clinic.

MacCorkindale appeared in 59 episodes of Falcon Crest from 1984 to 1986 as womanizing lawyer Greg Reardon, and took the lead in the short-lived series Manimal. In Britain, he appeared in the long-running hospital drama Casualty as consultant Harry Harper from 2002 to 2007.

He played Captain Georg von Trapp in "The Sound of Music" on stage in London in 2008-2009.

MacCorkindale's first marriage to Fiona Fullerton ended in divorce. He is survived by his second wife and fellow actor, Susan George. He had no children.
