We’re proud to announce our first Guest of Honour for PonyCon Holland 2022: Jenna Warren, the voice of Sunny Starscout in My Little Pony: Make your Mark and My Little Pony: Tell your Tale. She will be attending PonyCon Holland in person!
Jenna Warren is no stranger to the Toronto film industry, and she has always known that acting was what she was meant to do. Her passion and drive have helped her land lead roles in multiple films, tv shows and animated series. At the age of 10, she landed her first cartoon series lead, as “Olive” in ‘Justin Time,’ an Emmy-nominated and three-time award-winning series (Disney Jr/PBS/Sprout) which helped to launch her voice-over career.
Since then, Jenna has worked as a lead voice actress in over 10 animated series including NBC Universal’s ‘Kody Kapow!’ playing “Mei” opposite Jason Alexander. Other animation series leads include ‘Frankie and the Zhu Zhu Pets’ (Disney Channel), ‘The Doozers’ (Jim Henson/Hulu, DHX) 7 time nominated series ‘Wild Kratts’ (PBS – United States), and ‘Monster Math Squad’ (DHX Media, CBC-TV, Tiny Pop UK). Most recently, Jenna landed the role of “Carly” in the new ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ Reboot ‘Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go’ (Netflix).
Her accomplished work in voice-over acting earned her two nominations in 2017 for ‘Best Leading Voice Over Actress.’ One for “Mei” in ‘Kody Kapow!’ at the Young Entertainer Awards, and the second for her work as “Frankie” in ‘Frankie and the Zhu Zhu Pets’ at the Joey Awards.
Jenna can also be seen in lead roles in the upcoming feature films ‘The Family’, a psychological thriller directed by Dan Slater, that had its World Premiere at Busan International Film Festival in October 2021, and Sheila Pye’s coming-of-age psychological thriller, “The Young Arsonists” expected to release early 2022.
Jenna has also appeared in the recurring role of “Camille” in the 7-time award-winning and 10-time nominated series ‘The Next Step’ (The Family Channel – Canada) (Universal Kids – United States), and in guest-starring roles in Murdoch Mysteries (CBC), ‘Grand Army’ (Netflix) and ‘October Faction’ (Netflix).
