Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Air Force veteran and International athlete Cliff Simon’s unique presence sets him apart every time. A powerful veteran actor living in Los Angeles since 2000, Cliff realised his dream of becoming a US citizen. He is a published author of Paris Nights: My Year at the Moulin Rouge.
Cliff’s introduction to acting happened by fate while he was teaching windsurfing and water-skiing at a resort hotel, which happened to have a stage show in production. Informed by one of the performers that the choreographer was looking for a gymnast, Cliff somehow knew that this was going to be the first step towards a career on stage. To cut a long story short, Cliff performed all over the world in various stage productions as a dancer/acrobat, culminating in his dream role as a principle performer at the world famous and iconic Moulin Rouge Theater, Paris in 1989.
On his return to South Africa, Cliff pursued his stage career. Whilst studying drama, Cliff secured himself a modeling agent and enjoyed much success in ramp, print and television commercials. Cliff received major recognition as a model in South Africa and was asked to enter The Mr. South Africa talent and action man competition. On winning this competition in 1992, Cliff was offered an audition on a hugely successful television series, called Egoli – Place of Gold. After guest starring on the show for 3 months, he was offered a permanent contract as a regular cast member in a lead role and would go on to become a household name for his six year run. He decided it was now or never to immigrate to the USA with his wife, giving him the opportunity to realize a long time dream of further pursuing his acting career in America. Cliff soon landed a guest star role with Don Johnson on the hit TV series, Nash Bridges. A short time after that, he acquired the guest star recurring role of Ba’al on Stargate SG-1. Cliff’s combination of charming bad guy charisma and wicked sense of humor made him a viewer favorite antagonist, keeping his character recurring for five seasons.
In 2007, Cliff was brought back to play Ba’al in the Stargate SG-1 movie, Continuum, which was released in 2008. Cliff has many upcoming projects and has guest starred in many network TV series and major films. His latest film, Project Eden Vol 1, was released theatres in January 2018 and received Best Vision Award at the Boston Film Festival, with Vol 2 set to shoot at some stage in the future. Cliff is penned for a lead role in the major sci-fi film trilogy Almythea: Rise of Wingtar and a documentary and film, Land of the Free, targeting illegal trophy hunting in South Africa. Cliff is currently filming season one of his new travel adventure show due for release in February of 2020.
When Cliff is not working you will find him racing dolphins on his kite board off the beaches of Malibu or surfing a wave and leading a quiet life.
