Parisian magician Stefan Vanel has moved to the Harmon Theater at Planet Hollywood. His recent move might have something to do with the two different ways his name is currently being spelled on promotional materials. He performed under his given name, Stephane Vanel, whilst headlining in The Magic of Paris at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.

Stefan began his magical career by accident. In his early days he worked as an underwear model for Armani. One day, whilst awaiting his turn on the catwalk, Vanel had been practicing flourishes with a pack of cards. When it came time for him to walk down the runway, there was no place to put his cards. Vanel quickly adlibbed a manipulative card routine which he performed as he walked down the runway. The audience response was so great that his accidental performance unexpectedly landed him a weekly television magic show–entitled Fun TV Magic–in Paris, France.
