It always struck me as strange that the title card used for Simon MacCorkindale differed from the others (with the exception of Susan Sullivan) in that he was billed as "Simon MacCorkindale as Greg Reardon" rather than just his name as was the case for almost everyone else. Title credits (when not done in alphabetical order) usually show the most significant stars in the first few positions and for Falcon Crest this was Jane Wyman, Robert Foxworth, Lorenzo Lamas and David Selby. The final position is often goes to an actor who is considered more significant than the remaining cast and to emphasise this, they are credited along with the name of their character. This is how Susan Sullivan was billed throughout her time on the show and it was the same for Joan Collins on Dynasty, as another example. Simon MacCorkindale was given the second last position and billed with his character name to highlight his involvement. I never understood why he was credited like this when he wasn't a major star in the US and his role in Falcon Crest, although important, didn't seem any more important than that of Melissa Agretti or Peter Stavros who were never given a special billing in the credits. The only other person to have been given this treatment was "Gregory Harrison as Michael Sharpe" in the final season which was more understandable as he was arguably the main character in season 9. Why did Simon MacCorkindale get credited differently from most of his co-stars when he was on the show?
