I am a full time Magician & Illusionist. My wife Natalie & I get to travel all over performing our Magic & Illusion shows. We are so blessed we get to do what we love for a living. Although we are based out of Virginia we travel all over especially the East Coast.
On Monday January 21, 2013 I was checking my email and received a message from an acquaintance whom I met when she interviewed me for Virginia Living TV a while back. Over time we have become friends. The email she sent was actually a casting call for a magician to be used in an upcoming TV project. She also attached a note saying I was the first person she thought of. The casting call stated that they were looking for someone who could actually perform magic and they were not looking for an actor. I responded to the email thinking, what the heck. In a matter of a couple of hours my phone rang and it was the casting agent. They saw my promo and YouTube videos, liked my bio, and wanted to talk to me. Well I missed the call because I was in the shower getting ready to go to a gig, after my shower I called them right back but they had left for the day. I called back the next morning and left a message again and got a call back that the main casting agent was out of the office but that they had a few questions for me. They interviewed me over the phone for about five minutes and they thanked me for my time and said "I think we got everything." Then I asked if I should call back in a few weeks and they told me, "don't call us, we'll call you". That was very funny to me and I couldn't believe that I actually heard that line from a TV casting agent. In about one hour I got a call back that they reviewed my info and they wanted to set up a Skype meeting on Thursday at 1:30 pm. So on Thursday I did the Skype interview and it went well, but they really just asked me the same questions as before. I did learn a little more about the show, but because of the risk of someone else stealing their idea I was asked not to talk about that. I may never hear anything from them again but I must say the whole experience so far has been fun. The picture above is of me during my Skype meeting...
