Simon was “a real original and adventurer”


Her husband was so much more than just an actor, explained the grieving widow. He was “a real original, adventurer, sailor, swimmer, dancer, author,” she wrote in the statement.

He had left a void in her life and yet it was a mercy for him that Cliff died on the beach and thus near the water he loved so much.

Cliff Simon was best known for his role in the series “Stargate-Kommando SG-1”, as the cynical god Ba‘al. He also had many smaller guest roles in series such as “Navy CIS: L.A.” or “Castle”. Simon also qualified as a swimmer for the Olympic Games in Los Angeles in 1984.
