Touching words

Roy Horn (1944-2020) became world famous as part of the magician duo Siegfried & Roy. On May 8, the magician and tamer died at the age of 75 as a result of Covid 19 disease, as his long-time partner Siegfried Fischbacher (80) announced. With their shows, the two of them were the figureheads of Las Vegas for many years. No wonder that numerous stars such as Arnold Schwarzenegger (72) were fans of the duo.

“I always loved seeing Siegfried and Roy,” Schwarzenegger begins an emotional tweet . “Nobody could keep up with their talent and energy. They literally had the best show in Vegas history. ”The Hollywood star is deeply concerned. “I loved seeing Roy’s magic and stunts. I can’t believe he’s gone. ”

In addition to Arnold Schwarzenegger, fellow actor David Hasselhoff (67) said goodbye to Roy Horn. “I will miss Roy, the real ‘Tiger King'”, writes the 67-year-old on his Instagram account and posts an old snapshot on which Horn, Fischbacher and Hasselhoff hug with a broad grin.

Pop singer Heino (81) is also dismayed by the sudden death of the magician. He and his wife Hannelore (77) expressed their grief in a statement that is available from “RTL” . “Roy’s death makes both of us very sad. With Roy, we really have a good friend of ours, ”explains the 81-year-old. The last time they saw each other was at Heino’s 80th birthday in Las Vegas. Three days ago he was still on the phone with Siegfried, who was “full of hope. Our thoughts are with Roy’s family and of course very special with Siegfried! ”.

This year’s “Let’s Dance” candidate Lili Paul-Roncalli (22) is also stunned. Via Instagram , she posted two photos, in which she can be seen together with the deceased horn. “Rest in peace, Mr. Roy. Not only were you one of the greatest legends in show business, you also had the kindest heart! ”Writes Paul-Roncalli.
