    Marÿke Hendrikse joins Everfree Northwest Lineup

    Our next Guest of Honor has an appetite for Griffonstone scones and taco Tuesdays. A rough and tough griffon and an evil siren enchantress, she doesn’t play around one bit. Please welcome Marÿke Hendrikse to #EFNW2022!

    Marÿke Hendrikse was born in Nassau, Bahamas, and immigrated to MIssissauga, ON, Canada with her family when she was 2 1/2 years old. She has been acting professionally for more than 30 years, beginning her career in Toronto with roles in film, television and theatre while simultaneously attending professional ballet school.

    Marÿke has lent her voice to many hundreds of animated series and films, radio plays, and commercials; she considers voice acting her specialty. Some of her favourite roles include Susan Test in 'Johnny Test', Lola in '16 Hudson', Miserable Marla in 'Starbeam', Mom and Paxton in 'Polly Pocket', Ava in 'Lego Nexo Nights', Kate and Boomer in 'Kate and Mim Mim', Maya in 'Coach Me If You Can', Hadley in 'A Mermaid Tale 1 & 2', Loretta Bun (and several others) in 'Sausage Party', Sekimi in 'The Girl Who Leapt Through Time', Sonata Dusk in ‘Equestria Girls’, Gilda the Griffon in 'My Little Pony Friendship is Magic', and the rip-roaring Revy in 'Black Lagoon'.

    Marÿke holds a diploma in Child and Youth Care Counseling (graduated with the Governor General’s Academic Bronze Medal award), teaches voice acting for children and teens, as well as full time acting students at Vancouver Film School, and spends her spare time reading, biking, taking ballet class, playing fantasy baseball, gardening, and going to the theatre, movies and concerts. She is a rabid Toronto Raptors and Toronto Blue Jays fan (Go Raps! Go Jays!), is a music junkie who delights in finding new hip hop artists, and plays the guitar with the agonizing knowledge that she will never ever be anywhere near as good as her childhood idol, Prince.
