We're delighted to today reveal for the first time in Liverpool our GUEST OF HONOUR for Liverpool Anime & Gaming con this 13-14th June 2020 (tickets available now @ www.liverpoolanimecon.com
) - voice actor Jessica Cavanagh!
Jessica Cavanagh is a voice actor, theatre artist, and writer comprised of many geekdoms smooshed into one lady-body. As a voice actor with Funimation Entertainment, Jessica can be heard in over 100 anime titles but is best known for her roles in the fan favorites My Hero Academia (as Deku’s sweet mama, Inko Midoriya!), Fairy Tail (Aquarius), Attack on Titan (Carla Jaeger), One Piece (Dadan), Steins;Gate (Moeka), and Black Butler (Paula). Other notable roles include Rui Hachiogi in Code:Breaker, Kaguya Nayotaki in Rolling Girls, Michiko Tozaki in Concrete Revolutio, Iva in Karneval, Akane Origami in Katana Maidens, and Ikiko in Barakamon. Jessica has also adapted hundreds of episodes of anime for an English-speaking audience, including Golden Kamuy, Sakura Quest, Recovery of an MMO Junkie, Smile Down the Runway, Special 7, Katana Maidens, Alderamin on the Sky, Conception, Fuuka, Gosick, Date-A-Live, and A3!, among others. Her semi-autobiographical play, Self-Injurious Behavior (based loosely on her experience as the parent of her autistic son and favorite human, Elijah) has now been performed in Dallas, NYC, and Los Angeles, much to her amazement and delight!
