In the post, she has also talked about the late actor's love for the water. "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. I know this is a shock and will hit hard but we hope you can respect our need for privacy at this time," she wrote. 

Fans and friends rushed to social media to confirm the news about his shocking death and offer their condolences.

You will be dearly missed my friend. Deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. RIP."

Another tweeted, "Cliff Simon played possibly the best villain and was one of the best actors in all of "Stargate." The franchise would be unrecognizable without him."

One said, "RIP Cliff Simon. You were my favorite villian actor in SG1 and were a fascinating individual who seemed to live life to the fullest. You brought one of my favorite SG1 characters to life. Couldn’t help but root for Baal at times."
