From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Simon Channing-Williams (10 June 1945 – 11 April 2009)[1][2] was a British film producer. He was born in Maidenhead, Berkshire. He formed Thin Man Productions with Mike Leigh. This company produced the Oscar-nominated Vera Drake and the Palme d'Or winning Secrets & Lies, as well as all Mike Leigh's films since 1988.[3][4]

He also produced Goodbye Charlie Bright, and the double Oscar-winning Topsy-Turvy. In 2000 he formed Potboiler Productions with Gail Egan, which produced the Oscar-winning film The Constant Gardener.

Channing-Williams died aged 63, on 11 April 2009 in Cornwall, after a five year battle with cancer. Leigh paid tribute saying "He battled cancer very bravely for nearly five years. His great phrase was 'let's just get on with things' and right almost to the last he was still working. He was a very extraordinary big man and he will be missed universally."[2]
