ha ha ha this is by far my most popular post and it originally contained multiple embarrassing errors
because @bisexualslycooper idly wondered what the breakdown was and I have nothing better to do with my time!
Sly 1: Roxana Ortega
Is she actually Hispanic? imdb says her mother was Peruvian and her dad was Mexican-American, so heck yeah! Other notable roles: apparently she was in g-force
Sly 2: Alesia Glidewell
Is she actually Hispanic?Technically, no! According to Wikipedia her dad was Brazilian-American (and her mother Japanese). This makes her Latina, but not Hispanic - ie, from a Spanish-speaking country. As @slycooperandcarlosfox informs me, she is fluent in Spanish, along with Portuguese and Italian. And, y’know. English. Other notable roles: Lots! She has voiced both Samus Aran and Krystal, provided the creepy motion capture for F.E.A.R.’s Alma, and - most famously, I imagine - was the face and body model for Chell from Portal. Not only that, but her imdb page has stuff in basically every category, from “Producer” and “Director” down to “Camera and Electrical Department”. What an accomplished woman!
Sly 3: Ruth Livier
Is she actually Hispanic? Given how she has “received special recognition by the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts”, I kinda hope so, yeah! (@whoisthemasterthief informs me she is Mexican-American, specifically.) Other notable roles: apparently she was in drag to me hell (and GTA:SA, as one of the pedestrian VAs)
Sly 4: Grey Delisle Griffin
Is she actually Hispanic?Yes! She was raised by her maternal grandmother, who is Mexican, and often credits said grandmother as having a huge influence on her. Other notable roles: Man, where to start? A ton of versions of Daphne (Scooby Doo), Mandy (ie, Billy and), Kimiko (Xiaolin Showdown), Frankie (Foster’s Home), Sam (Danny Phantom), Vicky (Fairly Oddparents), and of course, her personal favorite role [mine too!], Princess Azula from Avatar the Last Airbender.
…it’s really all or nothing when it comes to other roles, isn’t it?
My sincere thanks to @whoisthemasterthief and @miatheladygamer for correcting me about the semantic difference between “Hispanic” and “Latinx” and DeLisle’s grandmother, respectively!
So tomorrow morning I leave Spain (I was on a work trip) and head back home to catch my flight to Japan the following day. ^_^ only 5 more days until the Utapri 6th stage!! This week I will be posting in a very active manner and I can’t wait to share with you everything that I can about the live!
Again, I will be attending Utapri 6th stage on Day 2 May 28th with @aishiteruitsumo6. The written up overview of 6th stage will NOT be published until AFTER both performances for the purpose of simply not spoiling or sharing news that could possibly change between the two days.
Along with that, I will make sure to put up photos of the 6th stage pamphlet and as well as any photos that the company will allow me to show.
(There will not be any photos of the concert itself for it is NOT allowed whatsoever!)
****Also! **** Disclaimer !!
Be aware that my own blog posts will and can be bias towards specific voice actors (I am a Maeno blog for Christ sakes!) for it is about my experience and my experience alone. Thank you!
I also will be reporting about the animate cafe during my stay in Japan! So look forward to that!!
If you have anything for me that you wish to ask or interested for me to find out about relating to the live itself, sales days, or anything else Utapri related then do not hesitate to shoot me a message on here or on my Instagram which is of the same name! (LINE works too!!)
