Roy Horn Complete Bio & Career

Roy Horn was associated with Siegfried Fischbacher and started the magical act Siegfried & Roy. They made the headlines in Las Vegas more often than not and kept on doing shows for almost three decades. However, in the year 2003, Horn was mauled during an act by a white tiger which was being used in the act and was half-paralyzed for almost 2 years. He has since recuperated and retired, and the duo reunited for a final appearance in the year 2009.
 
Roy’s story began in 1957 while working as a waiter on an ocean liner. He met Siegfried Fischbacher, who was working as a steward while performing magic tricks on the side. He volunteered to be Siegfried's assistant and soon the pair collaborated. The pair upped the ante in no time and their acts of making a rabbit disappear to a Cheetah vanishing. For the next 5 years, they performed throughout the globe especially Europe, and hardly charged any money. Roy and Siegfried had combined their magic tricks with tiger stunts in Las Vegas for over 3 decades. At first, they started off with shared billing and eventually as their own show. In addition to their hugely popular performances, they were active preservationists of white lions and rare white tigers. He was arguably one of the best magicians of his time.
 
Tiger Attack
 
During one such act, a tiger attacked him during a live performance and the show was brought to a standstill. After the incident, the show was called off for an indefinite period. After many claimed that the show must stop, he advocated that it wasn’t an animal’s fault and perhaps he got fainted which led to this incident. He got half-paralyzed after incident in 2003 but fully recovered by the end of 2005.
