Few magicians can boast a more impressive resume than Terry Evanswood. Evanswood, a child prodigy who started acting at age 10, received a scholarship to attend Chavez College of Magic. When he was 21, Terry became the youngest magician in history to perform at the legendary Magic Castle in Hollywood. The International Society of Magicians has awarded Evanswood its highest honor, the Merlin Prize (the magical equivalent of an Oscar).
