Scott Penrose, the president of The Magic Circle, will be answering your questions! So please pm me with all your questions for Scott by Monday Sept 11...

Here's what Wikipedia has to say!

"Scott Penrose (born 1969 in Essex) is anEnglish magician and magic consultant and is the son of magician John Penrose.

Penrose is the current President of The Magic Circle and was proposed for the post by the late Paul Daniels.[1] He is a Gold Star member of the Inner Magic Circle and was awarded the title The Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year in 2000.

He mainly works as a magic consultant and illusion designer. He taught Woody Allenmagic for his movie Scoop and advised on the Houdini movie Death Defying Acts (starringCatherine Zeta-Jones and Guy Pearce). He also built illusions for and appeared in the movie Magicians and tutored Sir Michael Caine and the young Bill Milner for the movieIs Anybody There?. Other credits include designing, creating and building magic and illusions for UK TV shows such as QI,Jonathan Creek and Hustle (TV series). In the 2015 Christmas Special of QI, Penrose surprised Stephen Fry with membership of The Magic Circle.[2]

For live theatre he has created illusion based special effects for the West End and UK Tour of Spamalot, The Ladykillers, I Can't Sing! The X Factor Musical, Bend It Like Beckham the Musical,[3] Mrs Henderson Presents[4] and the stage adaptation of The Tiger Who Came to Tea. In 2007 he created and advised on magic effects, illusions and quick change costume techniques for the Cirque du Soleil touring production "Koozå".

He has been described as "The epitome of the professional magician. Think top hat and tails. Think silks, doves and disappearing candles and you will know exactly who I am talking about."[5]

UK singer Paloma Faith used to be Penrose's assistant in his illusion act before she rose to fame as a performer in her own right.[6]Penrose later appeared in the video of Faith's song Smoke and Mirrors[citation needed]."
