MCM COMIC CON – LONDON 2018 SUMMER EDITION
The ExCel Exhibition Centre, London
Friday 25th – Sunday 27th May 2018
SPECIAL GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT:
JENNIFER HALE (Sons Of Anarchy / The Shield / Orange Is The New Black)
JENNIFER HALE, born in Canada and raised in the American South, is a world famous voice actress, best known for her work in video game franchises including BALDUR’S GATE, MASS EFFECT, METROID PRIME, METAL GEAR SOLID, SPIDER-MAN, BIOSHOCK INIFINITE, and STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC. In 2013, she was recognised by Guinness World Records as “the most prolific video game voice actor (female)”.
In addition to video games, Hale provides the voice for a number of cartoons including WHERE ON EARTH IS CARMEN SANTIAGO?, THE REAL ADVENTURES OF JONNY QUEST, THE POWERPUFF GIRLS, CODENAME: KIDS NEXT DOOR, THE GRIM ADVENTURES OF BILLY & MANDY, BRNADY & MR. WHISKERS, AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER/THE LEGEND OF KORRA, and TOTALLY SPIES! She has provided the voice of Cinderella and Princess Aurora in various Disney Princess projects, including its direct-to-video sequels and merchandise.
To be fair, this is literally only scratching the barest limit of the surface – Hale’s Wikipedia page lists pages of iconic roles over a range of styles and media – that being said, she loves being generally anonymous. “I love the anonymity. I could walk through Comic Con, and no matter how many people who might be a fan of what I do, we’re in proximity and no one knew. I’m invisible. If I’d have done as many on-camera roles as I’ve done voiceover I couldn’t go to the grocery store in peace.” Hale also stated in the same interview that “as cheesy as it sounds, the player is the star of the game. That’s the beauty of games – that it’s you that inhabits it. It’s not about someone else, it’s about that you get to be that person, and if I do my job right, I as a person disappear. Your experience is primary.”
This will be your chance to put a face to the voice as Hale will be on hand to meet and greet with fans throughout the entire weekend of MCM Comic Con London Summer Edition – keep an eye on our our own dedicated Event Page for the show foir the latest updated details and info!
