'The world of magic is grieving but the loss we’re all feeling is dwarfed by that of Anthony’s young family. Let’s work some real magic here. Please give if you can and retweet this more than he posted adverts for Secrets. x'

I find it curious that nowhere says how he passed

As being so young - it's unexpected

Although the Camden Journal [at the bottom of the article] has the Samaritans number suggesting that this was suicide

I have had a couple of friends pass that way - I just think trying to not say [or hide] a suicide because of some out dated notion that it is somehow embarrassing - doesn't help others with depression

I'm only presuming that this is what happened and why they haven't mentioned the cause - and obviously this is no reflection on Anthony, but rather on the state of reporting this type of matter

Many very successful and seemingly happy people have succumb – and if you are feeling 'bad' it's always good to talk to someone [anyone] as you are important to many people... anyway I wish everyone who knew him and his family the best


This weeks update

Andy Nyman writes: This week was the inquest into the death of our dear friend Anthony Owen. It was concluded that tragically Anthony took his own life. Anthony was one of the kindest, sweetest, most creative and best-loved figures in the magic world, so the fact that he kept his mental health and work pressures a dark secret came as a terrible shock to so many of us. The male 'code of silence' is a devastating one that means that for men under 45, suicide is the largest cause of death. If you are struggling at all, you can call CALM - the male suicide helpline on 0800 58 58 58 (nationwide) or 0808 802 58 58 (London). You can also visit the website and chat online at

Presuming that ‘work pressures’ was a reason is very disingenuous imho. Nobody knows what was going through Anthony’s mind. Various stories have surfaced about things that happened in the years leading up to his decision to take his own life. Let’s celebrate his life rather than trying to attribute cause. R.I.P. Anthony, you are missed.

Missed this until now, sad news indeed. Only this weekend I was doing Anthony's Ultimate Oil & Water again after looking through an old box of stuff I haven't done for years.

Look for all the world like you're counting the brain cells in his cranium.
