We’re delighted to announce that RWBY and Red vs. Blue voice actors Jen Brown and Shannon McCormick will be joining fellow Rooster Teeth star Samantha Ireland as special guests at next month’s MCM Manchester Comic Con.
Jen Brown is best known for voicing Pyrrha Nikos in fantasy animation RWBY and Agent Carolina in iconic web series Red vs. Blue. A record-setting Huntress prior to enrolling at Beacon Academy, the selfless Pyrrha Nikos was a much-loved member of Team JNPR before meeting a tragic end at the hands of the villainous Cinder. Meanwhile, Brown’s Red vs. Blue character Carolina is a short-tempered freelancer with an all-consuming rivalry with Blue Team baddass Tex – although recent seasons have seen the close combat specialist mellow out and forge closer relationships with her Blood Gulch comrades.
Currently playing news reporter Lisa Lavender in RWBY, Brown’s other Rooster Teeth roles include Ered in summer camp comedy Camp Camp and Beth in post-apocalypse drama Day 5. She also voices Harley Quinn, Lashina, Artemis, Hecate and more for superhero MMO DC Universe Online, and you can catch up with Jen on her horror podcast Women In Caskets.
Rooster Teeth fans will know Shannon McCormick as the voice of Professor Ozpin in RWBY and Agent Washington in Red vs. Blue. As well as overseeing the training of the next generation of Huntsmen and Huntresses as headmaster of Beacon Academy, the silver-haired, cane-wielding Ozpin is revealed to be the reincarnation of ancient warrior hero Ozma. Introduced as the main protagonist of Red vs. Blue mini-series Recovery One, the frequently traumatised and questionably sane Agent Washington is a former Project Freelancer operative who currently leads Blood Gulch’s Blue Team.
As well as appearing in other Rooster Teeth productions such as Camp Camp, Lazer Team and The Eleven Little Roosters, McCormick’s voice acting credits include Kuroudo Akabane in super-powered anime adventure GetBackers, Masahiro Tamano/Tanma in magical girl show Wedding Peach and The Riddler, John Constantine and more in DC Universe Online.
