The season eight finale was certainly one for the books. Wouldn’t it be awesome if one of the other actors from the finale were coming to Everfree Northwest this year along with the Student Six and Starlight Glimmer? We thought so too, so we Everfree Northwest is happy to welcome Mark Acheson, the voice of the demonic centaur Lord Tirek, to his very first My Little Pony Convention!
Mark Acheson has been acting professionally since his teens. After college, he was a member of Janus Theatre and performed on most of the stages in Western Canada for over a decade, before transitioning to Film and Television, in his 30’s. He has since appeared in multiple episodes of 5 of the longest running series in Vancouver; including X Files, Smallville, Supernatural, and Stargate. His film work includes Trixie, produced by Robert Altman; Elf, directed by Jon Favreau; Watchmen, directed by Zach Snyder and the Emmy winning miniseries Fargo.
His next transition, in his forties, was from the front of the camera to behind the microphone, when Mark began his cartoon career, starring in such series as Fatdog Mendoza, Weird-Ohs, Hulk vs Wolverine (as Sabretooth) and in the Direct-to-Video movie, Barbie and the Diamond Castle. Most notably, Mark has voiced Lord Tirek for the past few seasons of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, bringing him to a total of 32 different cartoon characters voiced.
Mark is an advocate for cutting edge environmental technologies which will build a better tomorrow for his son, grandson, and all children everywhere. He is very excited to be attending EFNW convention early next year.
