Kelly Metzger

Saturday, January 12th only!

Kelly Metzger is an actress based out of Vancouver, Canada. Growing up in Edmonton, Kelly studied violin, voice, dance, fine art and drama.

She loved watching musicals, cartoons, Star Trek: Next Generation, and Law and Order. After studying English for a couple of years at the University of Alberta, Kelly was accepted into the Studio 58 theatre training program at Langara College in Vancouver. She has been working professionally since graduation, first in theatre and then voice-over and film & TV.

Kelly is the voice of Sugar Sprinkles in Littlest Pet Shop and Spitfire in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She is proud to be the voice of Nya in Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitsu, the longest running show currently airing on the Cartoon Network.

Peter New

Saturday, January 12th only!

Peter New is a writer, actor and voice actor with over 100 professional credits. Besides playing playing Doctor Whooves, Big Macintosh, Goldie Delicious and numerous others on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, New has also voiced in Littlest Pet Shop, Chuck's Choice, Megaman Fully Charged, Saving Goola, Dinosaur Train, Tobots, Inuyasha and, most recently, the role of Vixel in Dragonalia.

On camera he's done everything from baring his chest for Daphne in Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, to tazing himself as a bad guy in Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow, to stuttering at inopportune moments in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, to forging shady real estate deals in Supernatural's crossover Scoobynatural. His latest writing is the multiple award winning short film WoodMan, in which he also starred, that was made as part of the 2017 Crazy8's filmmaking festival. Look for his next film - a feature film called Con of the Dead. He likes milk chocolate, single malt scotch, sunny evenings, and traveling.

Rhona Rees

Sunday, January 13th only!

Rhona Rees is a Leo Award nominated voice actor with more than 23 years experience behind the mic and in front of the camera. Rhona voices Vapor Trail and Rolling Thunder in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (and believes Rolling Thunder is the first pony in all of Equestria to have an Aussie accent!). She also voices Bev in Littlest Pet Shop: A World of Our Own, Gwen in Polly Pocket and Jet Jack on Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu.

Her long list of voice over credits also includes video games, dubbing and commercials. Her on-camera work includes The Good Doctor and Wu Assassins, and the lead in her celebrated short film Shuttlecock. Rhona is currently pitching her own original animated series and is passionate about bringing unexpected female characters to life. When she's not on set or in a studio, Rhona likes to escape to the mountains of beautiful British Columbia for hiking and skiing, or back to Australia for cuddles with her nieces.

Emmett Hall

Sunday, January 13th only!

Emmett Hall's career in the entertainment business has run quite the gamut.

While working over a decade as an animator and storyboard artist for children's television, he could be found moonlighting in Vancouver's alternative comedy community - most notably with the Sunday Service improv troupe. MLP fans will know Emmett as the voice of Sky Stinger in the episode "Top bolt" (a friend to the character Vapor Trail, voiced by fellow Vanhoover guest Rhona Rees), as well as a storyboard artist at DHX for both MLP: Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls.

Now, his most recent ventures have moved into the gaming world at Klei Entertainment, where he's found a niche writing narrative and composing for their various video games.

And every so often you just might hear his voice in the odd commercial and cartoon.
