FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Anime Festival Orlando 11 Announces Additional Guest

Orlando, FL (July 20, 2010) - Anime Festival Orlando 11 is very excited to announce an additional guest for this year’s event. AFO already had a dramatic guest list confirmed for the show whose talent has an extraordinary impact on the anime community. Recently, though, they were able to add another amazing guest to their line-up. AFO is proud to welcome Jessica Straus.

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).

Not only will all guests be available for photos and autographs throughout the weekend, attendees should be on the lookout for them in featured panels and events.

Huh...interesting. I didn't know she was Deunan Knute as well from Appleseed. Too bad I'm not in Orlando but thanks for the info.
