She can also be heard on Far Cry 5 and on the original cast recording of Onegin, a hit Canadian Musical. Besides acting, Lauren is a passionate cook and an avid beach bum. Big high fives and thanks for having me!


    Sunni Westbrook started auditioning for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic during its fifth season and joined the cast, as Cozy Glow, in season eight. She is grateful for every role she didn’t get because now she is Cozy!  Prior to starting her voice career in 2014, Sunni fought her calling as an actor, taking on “real jobs” in biotech and pharmaceuticals. A native Cheesehead, now living in Vancouver BC, Sunni likes forest walks with her big fluffy dog Ernie and reruns of “The Office.” Most importantly - Sunni is delighted to be with you at Everfree Northwest!
