Baltimore, MD (July 13, 2011) – K-ON! invades Otakon 2011!
K-ON! English voice actresses Stephanie Sheh (Yui), Cristina Vee (Mio), Cassandra Lee Morris (Ritsu), Shelby Lindsey (Mugi) join cosplayer/singer Karrie Shirou for a special mini-concert featuring the Japanese songs from K-ON! season one. Join them at their first ever Otakon performance!
Best known for her voice-acting work in Naruto as Hinata, Bleach as Orihime, and Eureka 7 as Eureka, Stephanie is a voice actor, voice director, ADR writer, and producer. Her credits include Mamimi in “FLCL” which she also produced, Mikuru in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Akira in Lucky Star, Guu in Hare and Guu, Kirie in Girls Bravo, to name a few. Stephanie’s most recent role is Yui in the Bandai-distributed K-ON!.
Cristina Vee is an anime and video game voice actress residing near Los Angeles, California. She has starred in anime such as Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha as the titular character, Rozen Maiden as Kanaria, The Familiar of Zero as Louise, Aika in Aika R-16, and Mio Akiyama in K-ON. Other anime roles include parts in Kannazuki no Miko, Hare + Guu, and The Blade of the Immortal.
Cassandra Lee grew up playing in the concrete jungle of New York City. One of her first anime roles was also her scariest: Yubel in Yu-Gi-Oh GX. Luckily, her next two roles as twins Leo and Luna for Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s were much tamer. Her current role as Ritsu on K-ON! is by far her favorite. Other roles include Mayu in Kurokami, Uppi in Slayers Revolution, and Saki in DuRaRaRa! She now lives in Los Angeles, where she gets lots of sun but not enough beach.
Shelby Lindley is relatively new to the world of anime, though not a stranger to voice over work. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she started acting professionally in theater at the age of 9. Her work in anime can be heard on the shows Tweeny Witches, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, and K-ON. Shelby is currently working as the English voice of Tsumugi on the anime series K-ON! as well as the webseries for LIV Doll’s LIV Friends as Sophie. She wishes everyone a wonderful time here at Otakon!
Otakon 2011 will be held July 29 – 31 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland.
