Steve Blum: Spike Spiegel
Haunted by visions of the woman he loved and lost, Julia, Spike’s criminal past slowly catches up to him — putting him and the Bebop crew in the crosshairs of the solar system’s most lethal criminal organization, the Syndicate.
The current Guiness Book of World Records holder for most prolific voice actor in Video Games, including titles such as Final Fantasy VII, Call of Duty and God of War, you can also hear Steve in a ton of amazing anime, including Naruto, and Gurren Lagann.
Steve Blum will have autograph sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Wendee Lee – Faye Valentine
A wanted outlaw, Faye Valentine is always on the search for the person with the key to her identity. In the meantime, she’ll fake it till she makes it.
With 300 anime roles under her belt including Bleach, Love Hina, Lucky Star, Sailor Moon, Magic Knight Rayearth and so many more, Wendee Lee is truly a Queen in the VA world!
Wendee Lee will have autograph sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Mary Elizabeth McGlynn – Julia | ADR Director
Mary Elizabeth McGlynn brought to life the dub for Cowboy Bebop as ADR Director, and provided the voice for Spike Spiegel’s lost love, Julia.
Award-winning voice actress, voice director and D&D Player Mary Elizabeth McGlynn is hot off ADR directing Netflix’s new She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, but you might know her better as Major Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell, or the woman behind the haunting vocals of the Silent Hill soundtracks.
Plus she’s part of a little project called Critical Role!
Mary Elizabeth McGlynn will have autograph sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
