Jessica Calvello

Jessica began working in the anime dubbing industry with ADV Films (now Sentai Filmworks/Seraphim Digital) back in 1995, with her first show being 3 big lines in the TV series, Evangelion. Her recent work includes Attack on Titan/Attack on Titan Junior High (Hange Zoe); Street Fighter V (Nadeshiko); Girls und Panzer (Saori); Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess (Éclair); Gatchaman Crowds/Insight (Hajime); Amagi Brilliant Park (Tiramy); Maria Holic (Kanako); Queensblade (Nanael); Dog and Scissors (Natsuno); and many more.

Some of her earlier work includes iconic titles such as Excel Saga, V1-3 (Excel Excel); Pokémon (Kay, the Raichu Trainer); Dragonhalf (Mink); Dirty Pair, OVA 1-5 (Yuri); Boogie Pop Phantom (Moto and Poom Poom); Ruin Explorers (Fam); and New Cutey Honey, in which she was personally cast by the creator of the Cutey Honey franchise, Go Nagai, to be the voice of Honey Kisaragi in the English dub. Jessica says that in all of her years of working in the industry, this is her most cherished and honored accomplishment.

Jessica has also enjoyed working with the mega talented Team Four Star in parodies such as Hellsing Ultimate Abridged Episode 4, as Rip Van Winkle; and with famed comic strip Cyanide & Happiness in a number of animated shorts found on their Explosm YouTube channel including: Dinner with the Folks, Sad Larry in Love, Going Down and many more (full listing of voice credits can be found on her Wikipedia)!

Jessica recently launched her website which has visual clips of some of her voicework, links to ridiculous songs from her YouTube channel, photo galleries of various convention antics, exciting adventures with her pupper, Menchi, her anime voice reel, and random musings under #JustJessicaThings.

Jessica enjoys painting, hiking, singing, nachos and unicorns.
