Press Release:

Voice Actors Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and Steve Blum will be appearing at Anime Boston, the largest anime convention in New England, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA on March 30th through April 1, 2018.

Mary Elizabeth McGlynn is a voice over actress, writer, singer, and director. As an actress, she is currently playing Governor Pryce in Star Wars Rebels, Dr. Maheswaran in Steven Universe, Zahra Hydrus in Geek & Sundry’s Critical Role, Valkyrie in Lego Marvel’s Avengers, Talis in StarCraft II, Johanna in Heroes of the Storm, Queen Metalia in Sailor Moon Crystal, and Brooha in Glitter Force.

Mary Elizabeth portrayed Major Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost In The Shell Innocence, Solid State Society, and Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex for which she won the American Anime Award for Best Actress. Some of her other popular roles are Cornelia in Code Geass, Kurenai from Naruto, Julia from Cowboy Bebop, Zanpakuto from Bleach, Helba and Bordeau from .hack, Jagura from Wolf’s Rain, Nuriko in Fushigi Yuugi, and Caroline from Vampire Hunter D.

“Mary Elizabeth McGlynn has one of the most recognizable voices in anime. Female heroes have long had a prominent place in anime and Mary’s portrayal of Major Kusanagi in the Ghost in the Shell series stands as the most iconic,” said Victor Lee, Convention Chair.

With literally hundreds of V/O credits to his name, Veteran Voice Monkey Steve Blum is best known as the voice of Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop, the villain Amon in Legend of Korra, Wolverine from several incarnations of X-Men, Orochimaru, Zabuza, and others from Naruto, Vincent Valentine from Final Fantasy VII, Leeron from Gurren Lagann, Storm Troopers and many others in most of the Star Wars games, dozens of Digimon, and a gigantic list of other characters from Anime, Video Games, TV and Film. In 2012, Steve was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records as Most Prolific Voice Actor in Video Games – appearing in almost 300 games (now approaching 400!)

Currently you can find him as Zeb Orrelios and other characters in the incredible saga that is Star Wars: Rebels on Disney XD, as Shoe and Sparky in Laika’s The Boxtrolls, and as astronaut Quentin Thomas on Hip Hop superstar LOGIC’s amazing album The Incredible True Story and his latest release Everybody.

Added Victor Lee, “What more can be said about Steve Blum? If you watched anime, you’ve heard his voice. If you don’t think you’ve heard his voice, you’ve probably heard his voice. It’s been too long since Steve was last in Boston!”

Best known as Luke Skywalker in George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy, he recently returned to the role in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens and in Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

A prolific voice-over artist, Hamill has performed in countless animated series for television, feature films and video games.

He also returned as the Trickster on CW’s The Flash, a role he first played in the original CBSseries.

Hamill has re-teamed with Wing Commander franchise creator Chris Roberts for Star Citizen: Squadron 42 with Gary Oldman, Gillian Anderson and Ben Mendelsohn. Hamill will receive his well-deserved star perfectly timed to the In-Home release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Digital and Blu-ray March 27th.
