“Magic is a catalyst that got my mind working in the area of self development because you are able to see such a variety of people on a consistent basis … see the ups and downs, the way people are, the way they behave, the way they act and how their minds work.”
Like many of our first customers, Vince Caso caught a commercial for Ellusionist during a David Blaine special. From there, he became a prominent member of virtually every flourishing community, including Handlordz and Decknique, and became a regular performer at the legendary Magic Castle.
But Vince is first and foremost an actor. He got his start at 13, landing a lead in 2007’s “Humble Pie,” starring alongside Mary Lynn Rajskub, William Baldwin and the Oscar-winning Kathleen Quinlan. Currently, he plays Bladezz alongside Felicia Day in the web series “The Guild,” which in its current season has featured a star-studded cast of cameos.
Funny thing about magic, though: It pops up in everything you do. That’s the case for Caso, who brings his card handling to his character. He talked with us about how magic affects his acting and his self-development business, how he landed the role on “The Guild,” how magic became a part of his character, why he’s more of a LePaul guy than Erdnase guy and what it was like to perform magic with Neil Patrick Harris for Joss Whedon and Nathan Fillion.
