Otakon has announced that voice actor and author Joe Zieja will be a guest for Otakon 2021.
Zieja is a former USAF officer, now a voice actor and author in Los Angeles. Fans have heard him as Claude Von Riegan in Fire Emblem: Three Houses; Cesar in Just Cause 4; Fox McCloud in Star Fox Zero: The Battle Begins; Achilles in Fate/Apocrypha; and many other anime and video game roles, as well as sidekick Issei Hoshino in Yakuza: Judgment.
He’s the author of the “Epic Failure Trilogy,” a whimsical, military sci-fi series described as “Terry Pratchett in space.” The third book was released in September 2019 from Simon and Schuster, and Zieja narrates the audiobook version.
In addition, Zieja runs a YouTube channel (www.YouTube.com/JoeZieja) where he teaches voice acting basics (as well as engaging in some shenanigans). On his Twitch channel (www.Twitch.tv/JoeZieja), he streams games he’s acted in and talks about voice acting with fans.
