Today I learned some tragic news from a tweet by Joseph Mallozzi, executive producer from Stargate SG-1 (among other shows).
“Incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of the wonderful Cliff Simon.”
Terrible news. And what a loss.
Cliff Simon, an actor and athlete hailing from South Africa, played the recurring role of Ba’al, a villain in the Stargate SG-1 series. He was a marvelous performer, virtually stealing the scenes in which he appeared.
I’d like to commemorate his talent by posting my favorite scene from Stargate SG-1 Season 8, episode 16:
