• Bill Newton Heading to BABSCon 2019

    Bill Newton will be making his way to BABSCon this year! Expect the Bright Macs and the Pharynxes. Head on down below the break for the presser.

    He’s one of the most dynamic recent additions to the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic voice cast. He’s one of the most popular new personalities on the pony con circuit. He’s charming. He’s sweet. He has the most delightful Aussie accent. And he’s making his triumphant return to BABSCon. He’s Bill Newton!

    Known to MLP fans as Applejack’s dad, Bright Mac, grumpy changeling Pharynx, and the big bad Pony of Shadows, but Bill’s been making a splash since his debut in the voice acting industry. Some of his roles have included Toby in the Minecraft miniseries, Challenge of the Spooky Isles and Mystery of the Greek Isles, Zac the Sunrise on Beyblade Burst, Simon Puggerson on Littlest Pet Shop: A World of Our Own, and more. He’s also mighty entertaining when streaming on his Twitch channel and on Twitter.

    Bill joins Guests of Honor, Maurice LaMarche, Tabitha St. Germain, Rebecca Shoichet, Kazumi Evans, Shannon Chan-Kent, Nicole Dubuc, Brian Hohlfeld, Andy Price, Tony Fleecs, Agnes Garbowska, and Sara Richard.

    So register now—maybe get one of our remaining sponsor badges if you can for the optimal BABSCon experience—book your hotel room, and come play with us this April 19-22!
