Calling all Steven Universe fans! We’re thrilled to announce that Grace Rolek, the voice of Connie Maheswaran on the cult favourite Cartoon Network show, is to be one of the special guests at this month’s MCM Birmingham Comic Con.

If you’ve yet to check out Steven Universe, the critically-acclaimed cartoon follows the eponymous Steven’s adventures as the youngest of the Crystal Gems, a team of magical heroes dedicated to defending humanity. Grace’s character Connie is Steven’s kind-hearted best friend, who eventually becomes a member of the Crystal Gems herself.

A voice actor since the age of seven, Grace Rolek’s other credits include Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs; Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown; Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children; Whisper of the Heart and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.

Meeting fans on the Saturday of the NEC event, Grace Rolek joins a special guest roster that already includes fellow voice actors Nolan North, Troy Baker, Anjali Bhimani, Jonny Cruz, Carolina Ravassa and Fred Tatisciore.
