‘Dynamo is Dead’ will feature conversations between the magician and the likes of Tyson Fury, Coldplay and Cara Delevingne
Magician Dynamo is set to be ‘killed’ on live television as part of an upcoming special called ‘Dynamo is Dead.’
Over the years, we’ve watched Magician Impossible pull off some jaw-dropping tricks and illusions. Some of his highlights include walking on the River Thames, levitating next to Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro and passing through the border wall between the USA and Mexico.
But it’s safe to say he’s never tried anything like this before.
The two-hour programme will be broadcast live on Sky in a month’s time and will see the Bradford-born magician, real name Steven Frayne, “go on a journey of both loss and hope.”
According to Sky, Dynamo will “defy the odds and go beyond magic – burying himself alive” and “dig his own grave.”
The grand finale will see Dynamo “killed by his creator” before he is ‘laid to rest.’
“In the darkness, Dynamo hit rock bottom after challenging battles with his mental health and the loss of his identity,” the broadcaster continues. “But then in the light, he found strength in sharing his climb to recovery, and rebirth as he moves to into the next phase of his life and career.
“Viewers will follow Dynamo’s journey told through recent powerful conversations with standout icons including Tyson Fury, Demi Lovato, Coldplay, Cara Delevingne and Steven Bartlett.
“Each moment with the star-studded line-up takes both Dynamo and viewers one step closer to discovering his freedom, breaking the illusions we hide behind as the icons uncover magic within themselves, before the grand finale.”
The magician has struggled with serious health issues in the past, having been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at the age of 14 and later arthritis. The conditions forced him to take a prolonged break from magic, during which he feared he may never be able to use his hands again.
But he said in 2020 that his struggle with Crohn’s and arthritis had made him “150 per cent better at magic.”
Dynamo is Dead will be shown live at 9pm on Sky Max on 14 December in the UK, and will also be available to watch on streaming service NOW on the same day.
