There will be so many awesome guests at Otakon this year, that we’re not sure if we can get to covering them all here on the site and it’s doubtful the schedules will allow interviews with everyone but we’re certainly going to bring you as much coverage as possible. So with that in mind, we’d like to start a series of intros to the great guests that will be at the event this year. Hopefully we’ll get to score some quick interviews and other press-access goodies for some of these guests but for now, let’s take a look at some notable appearances, starting with Caitlin Glass.
As covered in the official press release, “Voice actress and ADR director Caitlin Glass, best known for the role of Winry Rockbell in “Fullmetal Alchemist,” has been added to the guest roster for Otakon 2016, according to Otakorp Inc. She has been announced as Hitomi from FUNimation’s Kickstarter campaign for “The Vision of Escaflowne.””
Glass has been working in the anime industry since 2004. In 2008, she directed the widely popular fan-favorite, “Ouran High School Host Club,” as well as playing Haruhi Fujioka. Glass also lends her voice to Rose in “Tales of Zestiria”; Elma in “Xenoblade Chronicles X”; and Cammy White & Decapre in the “Street Fighter IV” and “Street Fighter V” series of video games.
Other well-known roles include Petra in “Attack on Titan”; Diancie in Pokémon’s “Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction”; Hannah in “Black Butler II”; Miria in “Baccano”; Satellizer in “Freezing”; Vivi in “One Piece”; Evergreen in “Fairy Tail”; Yakumo in “School Rumble”; and Kim in “Soul Eater.”
Glass was raised in Escondido, not far from where I also lived in San Diego County. Life and marriage took her to Texas (another thing we have in common, in addition to being nearly the same age) and she now lives in Dallas with her husband, Tony Patterson. In addition to voice acting, she has worked as an ESL teacher in Spain. Sounds like a lot of fun!
In addition to a long list of anime filmography, she has extensive voice acting experience in video games as well, as mentioned above. She was also in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Smite, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles to name a few.
