Cliff Simon, the South African character actor who starred as the villainous Ba’al in the sci-fi series Stargate SG-1, died Tuesday after a kiteboarding accident at the age of 58.

A report posted to Simon’s Facebook page by his wife said the actor died after the fatal accident on Topanga Beach, near Malibu. 

These are the message his wife shared with friends and family, “It is with unimaginable heartbreak that I am sharing with you that my beloved husband, Cliff Simon, passed away at 12:30 pm on Tuesday, March 9, 2021. He was at Topanga Beach, California and sadly passed away after a tragic kiteboarding accident”.

“He was known to most of you on this page as the villain you loved to hate, Ba’al, from Stargate SG-1. But as he said, “acting is what I do; it’s only a part of who I am.” And he was SO much more – a true original, an adventurer, a sailor, swimmer, dancer, actor, author. There is a gaping hole where he once stood on this earth. He was loved by too many to mention and had a great impact on so many lives.”

His wife added, “A small saving grace to this tragedy is that he was doing one of the things he loved most and passed away on the beach near the water, which was his temple.
