Magic

Alongside acting, I'm a magician in London. I've combined the two a couple of times. James Corden wrote me a part in GAVIN & STACEY, as a socially ambivalent wedding magician, and Dynamo & I created 02'S MAGIC COMMERCIAL

Magic began at Uni when I finished my dissertation on Presidential Policy & The Die Hard Trilogy (yes – that is what I chose). Everyone else was still writing so I started in on sleight of hand.

After training at LAMDA, I met my first magicians & realised I wasn’t as good as those who started at eleven years old (surprise, surprise). Soon after that I was on a long film shoot in India. When I wasn’t on set, I'd practice sleight of hand ten hours a day and on returning to London, I'd caught up with the magicians I’d met three months earlier.  

My friend & mentor Noel Qualter, the iPad magician, got me started professionally. I perform magic, mind reading, sleight of hand, misdirection & crooked gambling moves at all sorts of events and love every second.

Oh, and here's a little piece of magic with a single card....
