Susan George

The illustrious career of Susan George began at an early age and at just 17, she won her first starring film role opposite Michael York in The Strange Affair. In 1972, she landed what was to become her most iconic film role, starring opposite Dustin Hoffman in Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs. Susan’s performance as Amy, Hoffman’s young wife, was revered worldwide and catapulted her to International stardom. Living in California for some 12 years she starred in many movies before her return to the United Kingdom in the eighties to set up Amy International Productions. Choosing to work behind the camera in company partnership with her late husband fellow actor, Simon MacCorkindale. 

After much time away from the entertainment spotlight in 2017 Susan accepted an offer to return to our television sreens for the BBC One hit series The Real Marigold Hotel. Although Susan George is known the world over for her international film career, in the Middle East she is known for another passion, that of breeding the pure bred Arabian horse. It has become a successful business enterprise and in residence now are notably some of the world's finest Arabian Horses bred by Susan George. 

In 2010 Susan’s world was shattered when her husband of 26 years lost his battle with cancer and life took on a very different meaning. Her aim has been in recent years to ensure the outcome and success of the many projects and plans that they had created together. In the year 2016 Susan saw the realisation of a very special endeavour, the launch of “Lasting Life the Simon MacCorkindale Legacy” a charity she founded in the name of her late husband to help and support victims of cancer in their time of need. The first fundraising event Lasting Life Love Letters took place in the same year and was a triumphant success.
