When Mary Ann Ford married the Belgian Servais Le Roy, she joined his show as "Mercedes Talma" (generally known as just Talma). They formed a long-running stage partnership with Leon Bosco as "The Comedians de Mephisto Co", better known as "Le Roy, Talma and Bosco".

She became accomplished at performing sleight of hand and manipulation acts, especially coin manipulation, and she was often billed as "The Queen of Coins". She performed for over thirty years.

Talma first performed the Asrah levitation (an illusion devised by Le Roy) in London in 1914.
