Actor and athlete Cliff Simon died at noon on Tuesday, March 9th. According to his wife, the cause of death was a tragic accident on a windsurf board in Tobanaga Beach, California. The artist was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and had Polish roots – his parents were both Polish and Lithuanian Jews.
Despite the fame that gave him the role of villain in the TV series “Stargate”, he liked to stress that while he is an actor, he is part of his true self. In addition to “Stargate” and “Stargate: Continuum,” viewers can also link Cliff Simon to “Egola: Place of Gold”, “Operation Delta Force 5” and “Project Eden: Vol. 1”.
