Neil Patrick Harris seems to be everywhere these days, and for good reason. A talented actor in both comedy and drama, the man also sings, dances, is a frequent host of awards shows and a favorite talk show guest — and, oh yes, he performs magic. He has handled his career wisely, a child star who escaped the troubled adult life so often experienced by celebrities who made it big at an early age. With a career path blazing as brightly as his, and with all of the responsibilities that entails, it seems unlikely that he could find the time to devote to the Magic Castle and its members. And yet, he does. He takes his position as president very seriously and has worked diligently on improving the club, not only for its members but also for the guests who visit. Earlier this year, he was elected for another term as president. Shawn McMaster sat down with Harris to discuss his continuing reign, what his outlook is for the future of the club, and his past history in the conjuring arts.
