Orlando, FL (July 20, 2010) - Anime Festival Orlando 11 is very excited to announce an additional guest for this year’s event.

Most recently Jessica can be heard in the Transformers: War for Cybertron videogame as Slipstream, the first female Seeker. Additionally, this summer she’s been recording some villainous voices for the Mix Master 2 series. However, Jessica is most beloved for her role as Deunan Knute in the anime film Appleseed as well as other anime fan favorites such as Blue from the Wolf’s Rain series, Gidget from Eureka Seven and Lori Machete in Unbound Saga.
Already confirmed guests for AFO11 are David Yost (Billy Cranston, the “Blue Ranger,” Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers), Dan Southworth (Virgil, Devil May Cry 3), Reuben Langdon (Dante, Devil May Cry 3 & 4), Sonny Strait (Maes Hughes, Fullmetal Alchemist), Tony Oliver (Rick Hunter, Robotech), Tommy Yune (Creative Director, Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles) and Jason David Frank (Tommy Oliver the “Green Ranger,” Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers).
