London, November 16 (ANI): Emma Thompson has revealed that she was abused as a child by an elderly magician at her eighth birthday party.

The 54-year-old actress said that her parents had brought the magician to the house for her party, and that he was an old man with grey hair, the Mirror reported.

Thompson said that he took her behind a door and asked her if she would like a sweetie, and gave it to her when she said yes.
