Siguiendo el tema del ilusionismo del artículo anterior, donde nombramos al legendario David Copperfield, vamos en busca de ilusionistas/prestidigitador actuales. Si bien David Copperfield ya es considerado como prehistórico, actualmente destacan magos mundialmente conocidos como David Blaine, Juan Tamariz, Criss Angel, etc., de los cuales mi favorito sin duda es Cyril Takayama. Cyril Takayama is an American illusionist. He is perhaps best known for his street magic performances in Japan. Takayama was born and raised in Hollywood, California. His father is Japanese from Okinawa, while his mother is Moroccan-French, both of whom were beauticians. He was a member of the short-lived television series T.H.E.M. In 2007, he won the first place in The Magic Woods Awards, Best Magician Category.
Takayama became interested in magic when he was 7 years old, when he went to a magic show in Las Vegas where he saw a guest magician levitate a woman and cut himself in half. The first time Cyril ever performed magic in front of people was during his school’s talent show. At the age of 12, he entered the junior program at the Magic Castle in Hollywood.
