America’s Got Talent has had its fair share of terrifying and mind blowing acts. This year, escape artist Demian Aditya is bringing the horror to the show. Adding to the tension of his act is his very terrified wife.

Every time Demian Aditya comes on stage, it’s always a good thing to glance at the wings where his wife is biting her nails. Demian Aditya’s wife, Sara Wijayanto, is more than just a good looking show-stealer. Aditya likes to play with fear in his illusions and his wife certainly adds to it. She’s never sure if her husband will come out of his acts alive and well. Her screaming certainly gets our attention! Find out more about this illusionist’s wife, who has to put up with his death-defying craziness, in Sara Wijayanto’s wiki.

She’s from Indonesia

So is Aditya, in case anyone was curious. The couple traveled from Indonesia, where they live, so Aditya can compete in AGT. Wijayanto was born in Jakarta in 1979, which makes her age 38. Aditya, born in Central Java, is 37 years old.

Aditya, a self-taught illusionist, has performed in his own shows and events in Indonesia. Wijayanto is not just someone who watches her husband from the sidelines; she’s a celebrity too.

Sara Wijayanto grew up in a musically-inclined family. She began singing at the age of four, but didn’t consider a career in it until 2007 when a friend suggested she take it up full time. She collaborated with that friend, Andrey Chilling, and Mori Vebrani to record a song. She nearly gave up when Chilling and Vebrani passed away in 2009, but made a musical comeback.
