Welcome Maryke Hendrikse!

Our next Guest of Honor has an appetite for Griffonstone scones and taco Tuesdays. A rough and tough griffon and an evil siren enchantress, she doesn’t play around one bit. Please welcome Marÿke Hendrikse to #EFNW2022!

Marÿke Hendrikse was born in Nassau, Bahamas, and immigrated to MIssissauga, ON, Canada with her family when she was 2 1/2 years old. She has been acting professionally for more than 30 years, beginning her career in Toronto with roles in film, television and theatre while simultaneously attending professional ballet school.

Marÿke has lent her voice to many hundreds of animated series and films, radio plays, and commercials; she considers voice acting her specialty. Some of her favourite roles include Susan Test in 'Johnny Test', Lola in '16 Hudson', Miserable Marla in 'Starbeam', Mom and Paxton in 'Polly Pocket', Ava in 'Lego Nexo Nights', Kate and Boomer in 'Kate and Mim Mim', Maya in 'Coach Me If You Can', Hadley in 'A Mermaid Tale 1 & 2', Loretta Bun (and several others) in 'Sausage Party', Sekimi in 'The Girl Who Leapt Through Time', Sonata Dusk in ‘Equestria Girls’, Gilda the Griffon in 'My Little Pony Friendship is Magic', and the rip-roaring Revy in 'Black Lagoon'.

Marÿke holds a diploma in Child and Youth Care Counseling (graduated with the Governor General’s Academic Bronze Medal award), teaches voice acting for children and teens, as well as full time acting students at Vancouver Film School, and spends her spare time reading, biking, taking ballet class, playing fantasy baseball, gardening, and going to the theatre, movies and concerts. She is a rabid Toronto Raptors and Toronto Blue Jays fan (Go Raps! Go Jays!), is a music junkie who delights in finding new hip hop artists, and plays the guitar with the agonizing knowledge that she will never ever be anywhere near as good as her childhood idol, Prince.

Welcome Peter New and Vincent Tong!

It wouldn’t be an awesome party without the country colt and the cool kid. These ponies have been with us for years and are always there to be the Brothers from other Mothers we all need to teach us how to be gentlecolts… and maybe have a little too much fun now and again.

Please welcome Peter New and Vincent Tong to #EFNW2022!

Peter New is a writer, actor and voice actor with well over 100 professional credits. Besides voicing Doctor Whooves, Big Macintosh, Goldie Delicious and more than 30 others on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Discord on Pony Life, and several characters in the MLP movie and EQG properties, New has also voiced almost 70 characters in Littlest Pet Shop, as well as multiple roles in Chuck’s Choice, Megaman Fully Charged, Saving Goola, Dinosaur Train, Tobots, Inuyasha, Ninjago, Dragalia Lost, Warhammer 40k, several Barbie Movies and most recently, the Guava Juice Show to name a few.

On camera he's done everything from baring his chest for Daphne in Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, to almost-getting-away-with-it-if-it-wasn't-for-those-crazy-kids in Supernatural's crossover Scoobynatural. He has tazed himself comically in Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow, stuttered comically in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, and seriously sold a truck in Big Sky. Most recent on camera credits include American Dreamer, Twilight Zone, Turner & Hooch, a recurring bit on Riverdale, as well as starring in the upcoming time travel feature length comedy film Time Helmet.

His latest writing includes the multiple award winning short film WoodMan, in which he also starred, the utterly absurd radio play-style podcast Voyage of the Oeverwal, in which he plays a woefully nitwitted Columbus and which is about to start principal recording on Season 2, and a feature film called Con of the Dead- a based-on-a-true-story comedy that answers the question, “what if the zombie apocalypse began at a My Little Pony Convention.” He likes various chocolates, single malt scotch, sunny evenings, a good hat, and traveling.

Vincent’s career began on stage where he performed in West Side Story, La Cage Aux Folles, Mamma Mia, Beauty and the Beast, Altar Boyz, and The Lord Of the Rings. Vincent’s love of animation lead him to voicing many iconic cartoon characters. His latest role was in Disney+ Ice Age The Adventures of Buck Wild where he played Crash the lovable possum, alongside Simon Pegg. Other recent releases: Kai in Ninjago Virtures of Spinjitsu, Maximus in Supernatural Academy, Huckleberry Pie in Strawberry Shortcake, Drac in Super Monsters, Megaman in Megaman Fully Charged. His television appearances include Love Hard, Cop and a Half 2, Arrow, Transporter The Series, Fringe, and Fairly Odd Summer. As a singer he has lent his voice for shows like My Little Pony, Rev and Roll, and the new kid’s song series The Treebees.

As a dancer he was featured in many commercials and TV shows. Vincent has voice directed several award winning interactive video games. He also has some exciting upcoming projects with Dreamworks and Lego coming out soon. Vincent is a five time UBCP/ACTRA Award nominee and a four time Leo Award nominee. As an Asian artist Vincent is passionate about representing his culture in this industry. He has been breaking down barriers and stereotypes since 1996 in the show Oklahoma as Chinese cowboy no.1 and he’s continuing the good fight with each job showing kids of color that they are important and they CAN do anything!

Her accomplished work in voice over acting earned her two nominations in 2017 for 'Best Leading Voice Over Actress.’ One for "Mei" in 'Kody Kapow!' at the Young Entertainer Awards, and the second for her work as "Frankie" in 'Frankie and the Zhu Zhu Pets' at the Joey Awards.

Jenna can also be seen in lead roles in the upcoming feature films 'The Family’, a psychological thriller directed by Dan Slater, that had its World Premiere at Busan International Film Festival in October 2021, and Sheila Pye’s coming-of-age psychological thriller, “The Young Arsonists” expected to release early 2022.
