SacAnime Welcomes the Voice of Tomb Raider

sacanime-flyer

SacAnime welcomes Camilla Luddington (Tomb Raider, Grey’s Anatomy, True Blood) to our Summer 2014 show. This will be her first appearance at a convention. Other recent additions include Neil Napier and Tiio Horn (Assassin’s Creed III), Dave Fennoy and Melissa Hutchison (Telltale Games’ Walking Dead) and Josh Grelle (Attack on Titan).

Previously announced guests include Mark Sheppard, Rodger Bumpass,  J. Michael Tatum, Yuri Lowenthal, Johnny Yong Bosch, Roger Craig Smith, and more!

About CAMILLA LUDDINGTON:

Currently starring on ABC’s hit series Grey’s Anatomy, CAMILLA LUDDINGTON has the gift of portraying characters with both strength and vulnerability, and her Dr. Jo Wilson displays plenty of both as she finds her way through complicated storylines of love – opposite the troublesome Dr. Alex Karev — and career. Audiences relate, and love her.

The sci fi/fantasy world has come to love her too for her embodiment of Lara Croft, a different kind of heroine, in the video game Tomb Raider. When the game was released in 2013, critics praised Luddington for giving the classic icon a much-needed reboot. Gamers agreed, buying over a million copies in the first 48 hours of release.

But even before Grey’s and Raider, Luddington had made her mark. In her first starring role in America, she brought to life the real English girl who was destined to become a queen, starring as Kate Middleton in the much-loved Lifetime movie William and Kate. The project launched her career in this country, and was one of the two highest-rated programs ever aired on the network.

From princess to au pair, Luddington has brought life to all kinds of appealing young women. In a major recurring role opposite David Duchovny and Evan Handler on the critically acclaimed Showtime series Californication, she portrayed Lizzie, the seemingly sweet English nanny who would do whatever it took to make it in L.A.

And somewhere between the princess and the nanny came Claudette the Fairy, her recurring role on the award-winning True Blood, where she again was the heroine, protecting series star Anna Paquin from all those True Blood villains.

Luddington was born and raised near London in Berkshire, England. She started acting at age 5, entertaining the family and directing her little brother in their two-character performances. By the time she was 11, she had her first agent and was appearing in local theatre productions. After finishing her studies in Theatre Arts at London’s prestigious Italia Conti Academy in 2007, she moved to Los Angeles, where she now lives and works.

About NEIL NAPIER:
Neil Napier stars in SyFy’s new apocalyptic thriller, Helix as Dr. Peter Farragut, Alan’s flawed and deeply conflicted brother. Season One was a wild ride, and he is excited to get to work on Season Two later in 2014.

Prior to embodying Peter, Neil had the joyous privilege of playing Lt. Karl Hagerman in IFC’s dark and dangerous comedy series, Bullet In The Face. With other TV turns in The Listener (CTV), Blue Mountain State (Spike), Zero Hour (ABC), The Business (IFC) and Naked Josh (Showcase), it’s clear he likes to keep one foot in the dramatic and one foot in the absurd…

After spending much of his youth and early adulthood immersed in the worlds of rugby, football and hockey, Neil has found that his background in athletics has served him well in the world of performance.

In addition to dozens of forays onto the stage (his first love), and roles in cult horror films such as End of the Line and $la$her$, Neil’s physical approach to his craft has been called upon in several recent productions, such as Erased (Weinstein Company), Infected (SyFy), Immortals (Relativity), Riddick (Universal), as well as the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past (Fox Studios).

Videogames also figure large in Neil’s body of work: As well as playing the villainous role of Charles Lee in Assassin’s Creed 3, and the burned out old skater/guide, Bob, in Shaun White Skateboarding, he has voiced and motion-captured characters in several videogames, including Deus Ex; Human Revolution, Watchdogs, Outlast, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, and Thief IV. Neil is also currently working on several new videogame titles.

Born and raised in Montreal, Neil now resides in Toronto where, when not at work on a set or in a studio, he can be found playing hockey, practicing yoga and trying to get better at guitar.

About TIIO HORN:
Kaniehtiio (Tiio) Horn voiced and provided facial capture for Kaniehtí:io in Assassin’s Creed III.

Tiio was born and raised in Kahnawake, a Mohawk reserve just outside of Montreal.

Tiio burst onto the feature film scene with roles in the The Trotsky opposite Jay Baruchel, New Reel Film’s Leslie, My Name is Evil, as well as the lead role in the critically acclaimed and award winning The Wild Hunt. All three films premiered at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. Other credits include supporting roles in Jacob Tierney’s Good Neighbours, Immortals opposite Mickey Rourke, Freida Pinto and Henry Cavill, On the Road starring Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley and Tom Sturridge

In 2009 Tiio earned a Gemini Award nomination for her portrayal of Angel in the APTN MOW Moccasin Flats: Redemption, as well in 2010 and 2011 as part of the ensemble cast of CBC’s 18 to Life. Other television credits include a rercurring role on Syfy’s Defiance, as well as guest star appearances on Being Human, Alphas and The CW hit show Supernatural. Tiio currently stars in the Netflix original series Hemlock Grove opposite Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgård and Landon Liboiron.

Tiio wrote, directed and acted in the semi autobiographical short film ‘The Smoke Shack’, which took home the ‘Golden Sheaf’ award for Best Comedy at the 2013 the Yorkton Film Festival.

In her spare time Tiio plays roller derby, and spends time with friends, family and her cat Boodz. She divides her time between Kahnawake, Toronto and Los Angeles.

The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira Appears at Awesome Con 2014

ACDC_Danai_Post

Awesome Con welcomes DANAI GURIRA (Michonne on The Walking Dead) to their 2014 show! Danai will be appearing both Saturday and Sunday. She joins a lineup including fan favorites like Billie Piper, George Perez, Cary Elwes, Steve Niles, Sean Astin, Marc Hempel, Ron Glass, Jewel Staite, Timothy Zahn, and many more!

About Danai Gurira:

Actress and playwright Danai Gurira stars as one of the most popular characters in AMC’s critically-acclaimed original series “The Walking Dead.” Based on one of the most successful comic books of all time, “The Walking Dead” follows a group of survivors who are searching for a safe home after a zombie apocalypse. In the season two finale, Gurira’s heroine ‘Michonne’ bursts onto the scene as the mysterious sword-wielding zombie slayer. “The Walking Dead” wrapped its third season in style, logging a monster 11 million total viewers for the season, making it the first original cable series ever to end the broadcast television season as the number one show in delivery for adults 18-49.

Prior to joining “The Walking Dead,” Gurira finished production on the independent drama “Mother of George,” the story of an African woman’s struggle after arriving in the U.S. to honor her heritage while attempting to define her new marriage in modern terms. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was acquired by Oscilloscope Laboratories. “Mother of George” will premiere in New York on September 13, 2013 and will expand to Los Angeles and an additional 10-20 markets the following week. Zeba Blay, from Indiewire, said “…Gurira, eerily luminescent in every frame, perfectly captures a part of the African experience – the struggle to reconcile tradition and heritage with modern, Western point-of-view.”

Gurira also starred in the multiple-award winning film “The Visitor,” opposite Richard Jenkins, in which she played a Senegalese immigrant in New York trying to survive while her illegal immigrant boyfriend is detained by the U.S. government.  Other film credits include “Three Backyards” and “Restless City.” Her television credits include roles on “Law and Order: Criminal Intent,” “Lie to Me” as well as a recurring role on the HBO David Simon series “Treme.”

An award-winning playwright, her most recent play “The Convert” (Stavis Award) is an historical drama set in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Part of a trilogy Gurira is writing about her native country’s coming of age, the play ran at Woolly Mammoth Theatre in Washington, D.C. from February 13 to March 10, 2013.

Gurira was born in the U.S. and raised in Zimbabwe. She earned an MFA in theatre from NYU after moving back to the U.S.  Her initial success was as the co-lead of “In the Continuum” (a play she co-created and co-wrote while in the acting program at NYU.)  The upbeat powerful story focused on two women: one, an upper class, educated newscaster in Africa; the other, an impoverished teenager in south central L.A., who discover that they are HIV positive, and learn to cope in the face of hatred, discrimination and ignorance. Gurira performed the play off-Broadway, in numerous theaters around the U.S., and in Africa. She received numerous accolades including an Obie, the Outer Circle Critics John Gassner Award, the Global Tolerance Award (Friends of the United Nations) and the Theater Hall of Fame Honors.  Gurira also received the Helen Hayes Award (Woolly Mammoth).

She subsequently received a grant for research in Liberia and Sierra Leone which resulted in her second play “Eclipsed”—the story of women abductees trying to survive during that region’s devastating civil war.  Gurira won Best Playwright at the NAACP Theater Awards and Best New Play at Helen Hayes Awards. And, on Broadway, Gurira starred Bartlett Sher’s award winning revival of “Joe Turner’s Come and Gone.” She also earned the Actor’s Equity Callaway Award for her performance as Isabella in the 2011 Shakespeare in the Park production of “Measure for Measure.”

Gurira is also a Hodder Fellow at Princeton and a commissioned playwright with Yale Rep.  She is co-founder of Almasi (Al-ma-see), a Zimbabwean American Dramatic Arts Collaborative Organization. Their mission is to instill professional values, skills and practices in the Zimbabwean Dramatic Arts through education and collaboration with professional American dramatic artists and artistic institutions.

Gurira divides her time between New York and Los Angeles.

Awesome Con DC will be on April 18-20, 2014 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Show hours are 3pm-8pm Friday, 10am-7pm Saturday, and 10am-5pm Sunday. Details at the website:  www.awesomecondc.com
