Dynamo admits he was "really nervous" before performing a magic trick for Hollywood actor Samuel L. Jackson because he was desperate to impress him

Dynamo was "really nervous" performing a magic trick for Samuel L. Jackson.

The 30-year-old magician insists he doesn't get anxious before showing off his incredible illusions, but he made an exception for the Hollywood actor because he was so desperate to impress him with his sensational skills.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I don't really get nervous performing any more because I do it so much, but with Samuel L. Jackson I was really nervous because I wanted to impress him so much.

"I think he was actually more impressed after seeing the magic but I was definitely buzzing about seeing him."

The illusionist first knew Samuel was a fan of his when the 'Avengers' actor sent him a tweet while Dynamo was playing football video game FIFA with his friends.

He added: "When I got a tweet off him the first time, when we initially made the connection through Twitter. When I got that tweet I remember I was playing FIFA with my friends and I dropped the controller because I was so focused on the tweet.

"My friend kept scoring goals past me because I didn't have the controller in my hand and he was like, 'Come on, play the game.' I was like, 'Samuel L. Jackson just tweeted me! Leave me alone!'

"I still used magic to win that FIFA match though, don't worry."

The next episode of 'Dynamo: Magician Impossible' airs on Thursday (01.08.13) at 9pm on Watch.
