He also played Frank Leo in the television drama "The Bridge" and has a role in the upcoming A&E series "The Returned." Amendola is known to sci-fi and fantasy fans for his television roles in "Stargate SG-1," "Continuum" and "Once Upon a Time."

Fans of anime guest of honor Tiffany Grant know her voice from more than 1,200 television episodes, anime videos and movies. She provided voices for "Azumanga Daioh" and "Golden Boy," to name a few.

The gaming guest of honor will be Kenneth Hite. He began writing video games in 1981 and his early design work includes the Nephilim role-playing game.
