 AS SHE EMBRACES A BRIGHT NEW FUTURE
SUSAN GEORGE
OPENS HER HEART ABOUT MOVING ON AND THE EXCITING CHANGES IN HER LIFE

Looking every inch the lady of the manor as she poses against the historic backdrop of Maunsel House, a stunning medieval mansion in Somerset, time seems to have stood still for the ever youthful Susan George.

Yet the actress is experiencing monumental changes in her personal and professional life right now -changes she talks about for the first time in this exclusive interview with HELLO!.

“I’ve turned a massive corner,” she says. “I feel incredibly excited, which I never thought I’d feel again. There’s so much more to do in my lifetime and still so much to fulfil.”

HOME SWEET HOME
Not only is Susan embracing a renaissance in her film and TV career, preparing for a one-woman stage show and completing her candid autobiography, but she is also considering a move from the wilds of Exmoor and parting with many of her Georgian Arabian horses, part of the equestrian breeding enterprise she has devoted more than two decades to.

It is all, she says, exactly what her husband, actor Simon MacCorkindale, who died of cancer at 58 in 2010, would have wanted.

Richard Fleeshman, Jack Edwards, Maxwell Caulfield

At the invitation of dear friend Max Caulfield went to see Guys and Dolls at the Bristol Hippodrome.  Show was fabulous and I felt we’d been treated to West End magic here in the South West of England. After an exciting curtain call with the audience all on their feet, Maxwell introduced me to the audience and delivered an emotional speech about Simon and our friendship throughout the years. Huge thank you to the cast and theatre staff for the warm welcome and support for www.lastinglife.org.uk

Susan lost her beloved husband 5 years ago to cancer and Lasting Life the Simon MacCorkindale Legacy will aim to fundraise for cancer, specific needs and RAFT a 25 year established organisation pioneering medical research and changing the lives of many. Susan’s said today “The words on the homepage of the website alongside a photograph of pebbles on a beach each one holding up another, are a symbol of and what is needed in crisis times and what Simon would wish me to do in his name.”

International actress, photographer and champion Arabian horse breeder, Susan George is launching a new charity fund in honour of her late husband, Simon MacCorkindale, who died from cancer in 2010.

12509191_949500831765407_1437882217329789619_nFirst week of the month had a meeting at the farm with friend Liz Brewer, founder of “Life after Breast Cancer” and Leonor Stjepic CEO of pioneering RAFT. It would take pages to explain just what this charity has achieved in its 25 years but it is inspirational.

RAFT is going to be the umbrella for the project closest to my heart, the realisation of “Lasting Life” the Simon MacCorkindale Legacy.

Today Liz and I had lunch with Sir Ben Slade at his magnificent Maunsel House in Somerset and he has kindly offered to host a dinner for the launch. There will be so much to share as this journey unfolds and it’s just the beginning…….


Earlier today Susan gave a short interview with Jeremy Vine on BBC Radio 2.  She spoke about Simon’s illness and when is the right time to let others know about it

Daily Mail article on Simon’s memorial

He made thousands of fans over an acting career which spanned three decades, and it seemed his closest friends were keen to show the actor was still not far from their minds on Wednesday.

Friends and family of the late actor Simon MacCorkindale gathered at a remembrance service at the Actors Church, otherwise known as St Paul’s in Covent Garden to pay their respects to the talented actor.

Susan George Chats with the Café about “Straw Dogs,” Her Arabians, and the Love of Her Life

Recent interview with Susan

I met my Simon for the very first time at a charity benefit and we became the best of friends for years after. So I married my soul mate and hand through life. He was a stunning-looking man, but the true essence of Simon was his heart, acres wide and full of jewels.

Susan speaks again about loosing Simon and how she is coping with the loss

Everywhere around the house there are framed photos of her and Simon entwined in each other’s arms.

‘I feel as if it were only yesterday that he and I were sitting here together,’ she says. She stops and turns her head to gaze out of the window as her large blue eyes start to fill with tears.

Then, recovering her composure, she continues to talk about the loss of the love of her life. ‘I know Simon lives on with me in everything I do. I also know he’d never want it to be too much for me, because he had so much belief in me. Now my whole  purpose in life is to follow the dream  we both had. A lot of people expected  I wouldn’t carry on with the horses  after what happened. But I couldn’t stop.’
