News American Voice of FMA's Edward Elric at London's MCM Expo

Vic Mignogna, best known as the dub voice of Edward Elric in both anime versions of Fullmetal Alchemist, plans to attend MCM Expo in London at the end of May. Mignogna confirmed his plans in an online interview on the MCM Buzz website.
Mignogna is a veteran of dozens of anime dubs, including such recent titles as Vampire Knight, in which he voices Zero Kiryu and his brother Ichiru, and Soul Eater, where he plays the Death Scythe, otherwise known as Spirit Albarn. Mignogna also voiced Hikaru Ichijo, the hero of Superdimensional Fortress Macross, in the dub created by ADV (not released in Britain).
However, Mignogna is best-known for playing Edward Elric in all the screen versions of Fullmetal Alchemist to date. In the original serial and the Conqueror of Shamballa film, he acted alongside Aaron Dismuke as Alphonse Elric. In Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Mignogna reprised the role of Edward beside Maxey Whitehead as Alphonse. In the MCM Buzz interview, Mignogna mentions he has recorded part 58 (of 64) of Brotherhood, but he (deliberately) does not know how the story will end. He also voiced Edward in a trio of Alchemist videogames.
MCM Expo will run at the Excel Centre in Royal Victoria Dock from May 27th to the 29th, though there's no confirmation about which day(s) Mignogna will attend. Now in its tenth year, the festival - which covers anime, manga and cosplay alongside other media - reportedly draws more than forty thousand people.
