Celebrities you probably didn’t know were members of The Magic Circle

So as I begin my digging into the world of magic, I came across this list of celebs that are members of the elusive circle which honestly blew my mind…

The most surprising for me is Prince Charles as we live in Wales here in UK,  he is our Prince! He joined in 1975 (same year the other half was born) after being taken by his Uncle and performing the world famous “cups and balls trick’

I mean cups and balls trick, on this basis, surely I can get in, no?

Muhammed Ali wasn’t only quick and shifty in the boxing ring – he was pretty good at sleight of hand too. He was so interested in magic that he hired a personal magician to travel with him and teach him magic – as you do!

Neil Patrick Harris  – you might know him best for playing Doogie Howser or Barnie Stinson in “How I met Your Mother”, but did you know he is also a magician? More than that he was once the President at the Magic Castle in Hollywood!

Nigel Mansell took up magic after the accident that ended his racing career. According to him it helped his recovery by making his “brain work in different ways”

Eddie Redmayne  when he’s on the  big screen playing Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything” or in film adaptations of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, he is also a budding magician.

There is also the likes of Steve Martin, Stephen Fry but I’m sure everyone knows of them.

Do you know of anyone who surprised you, we would love to hear from you!
