Roy Horn, who is half of the Siegfried And Roy duo, has tested positive for COVID-19.
A publicist for the magician made an announcement to ABC News, saying, “We can confirm that Roy Horn has tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19 and is currently responding well to treatment. Most importantly, Siegfried & Roy send positive wishes to everyone impacted by the pandemic. We will have no further comment on Roy’s recovery at this time and ask everyone to respect his right to privacy.”
Siegfried And Roy performed on the Las Vegas Strip at The Mirage beginning in 1990. Their show came to an unexpected close in 2003 after an onstage incident that involved Roy Horn and his white Bengal tiger, Mantecore.
ABC News adds that Siegfried and Roy are currently working on a biopic and docuseries for television that is set to be released in 2021.
