Marc Spelmann discovered his fascination for magic, the paranormal, the improbable and impossible aged just seven years old. Unlike most, Marc would watch magic on television and have a unique ability to reverse engineer everything he witnessed. But rather than ruining the experience of magic it fuelled Marc’s passion to create his own techniques and demonstrations.

“I became obsessed with these principles that seemed so clear and understandable to me despite not having any literature on the subject. I remember finally being able to afford some books on magic and rather than learning the secrets I was confirming what I already knew just by watching magicians on TV.

Marc’s natural ability and passion however took a back seat during his teenage years, as he decided to study more conventional subjects like art, design and illustration, something else that came naturally to him. Throughout his studies Marc knew ‘Magic’ was where his heart was and credits his late godfather David with giving him the courage to pursue his dream of becoming a performer.

“David was the most creative person I’ve ever known. He had big dreams, but he never got the chance to fulfill them as he died aged just 40. Before he passed, he told me to live my life to the fullest and that it’s better to have tried and failed than to never have tried at all. He was, is and will always be my hero.”

Marc took a gamble and decided to try and break into the London magic scene, initially performing for nothing in order to gain valuable experience and then networking and working with some truly incredible magicians who taught Marc about the business side of things. Since then, Marc has performed for royalty, heads of state and blue chip corporations around the world.

In December 2015, against all odds and under life-changing circumstances for his wife, Marc became a father. It was a moment in his life that made him re-evaluate everything in his life, including what ‘Magic’ actually is and the fact that it is undeniably real.

“The first moment I saw my daughter I realised that magic was real. We all have real magic around us, sometimes we just need to open our eyes and hearts to see it and feel it.”

In 2018, having spent 2 years away from performing to look after his wife and daughter Marc decided to step back on the stage by auditioning for Britain’s Got Talent. His performance was based upon his perception of ‘real’ Magic, which received a standing ovation and was the most watched performance of the whole series reaching over 200 million views across the world.

“It was only ever meant to be a dedication to my wife and daughter but it turned into a life changing moment. I did not expect it to be so wonderfully received in the Palladium theatre, let alone around the world. I was truly humbled by the response, I still can’t believe it happened to me.”
