Lisa Ortiz and Greg Ayres to appear at Anime Boston 2017!


Lisa Ortiz

Lisa Ortiz is a New York based veteran voice actor, director and producer. Her career as a voice over artist began under the shroud of an attempted auto larceny gone awry. No really, ask her yourself. She’ll tell you.

She is most well known for her role as Lina Inverse in Slayers, and Amy Rose in Sonic the Hedgehog, but she began her career as the high elf Deedlit in Record of Lodoss War. Since then she has gone on to record dozens of anime, series, audio books, video games, and films both as a voice and as a Producer, Director, and Adapter.

She is currently the director of Pokemon XY and has worked on the show in various capacities over the years since the Indigo League. Lisa has voiced many characters over the years: Misty’s older sister Daisy, Sabrina, Flannery, Oshawatt, Fletchling, Litten, and present day gym leader Korrina.

She can currently be heard as Noembelu in Street Fighter V, as well as on the Nickelodeon Show Royal Academy, amongst others. Her favorite roles include: Serenity Wheeler in Yu-gi-oh; Tony Tony Chopper in One Piece; Shiori in Revolutionary Girl Utena; Rina in Time of Eve; The Devil in Gangstar 4; Musa/Icy in Winx Club; Azalyn in The Irresponsible Captain Tylor; and Tsubasa Shibahime in His and Her Circumstances.

 

Greg Ayres

 

Greg Ayres has spent the last fourteen years working in an industry he had admired for years as a fan. With over 200 credits to his name, this fan-boy has managed to get to play a variety of characters that are almost as colorful as his hair. He’s thrilled to splash into the role of Nagisa Haruki in Free Eternal Summer, and equally as excited to “kill” as MonoKuma in Danganronpa, and Doug in Gangsta.

He was thrilled to be a part of the Toonami re-launch in the roles of Ganta Igarashi in Deadman Wonderland, and Heihachi Hayashida in Samurai 7, and even more thrilled to follow that up with the following summer’s thriller Another as Kouichi Sakakibara. His most recent roles include: Frost in Dragon Ball Z Xenoverse 2; Clear in Dramatical Murder; Satoru Asahina in From the New World; Kenji Nakanishi in Say I Love You; Sion in No. 6; Heisuke Toudou in Hakuoki; Tommyrod in Toriko; Arikawa in This Boy Can Fight Aliens; Tomoki Sakurai in Heaven’s Lost Property; and Volken in the Book of Bantorra.
