C2E2 2014: Ashley Eckstein, Star Wars and Disney voice actor to appear


JediMouseketeer.com is pleased to announce that Ashley Eckstein, best known for providing the voice of Ahsoka Tano on "Star Wars: The Clone Wars", "Sofia the First" and founder of Her Universe will be signing autographs and meeting fans during every day of C2E2 2014! She will also be a judge of the C2E2 Crown Championship of Cosplay!

Actress, entrepreneur and fangirl fashion trendsetter, Ashley Eckstein, was born in Louisville, KY and raised in Orlando, FL. She grew up a true blue Disney kid with an extensive Alice in Wonderland collection. She fell in love with acting at an early age and started her career doing theater, before landing a role in a television show for Sea World called Shamu TV.

She moved to Los Angeles to pursue her acting full-time, and her first appearance on JAG set the stage for a promising career. Since then, she has starred in Blue Collar TV, Drake and Josh, That's So Raven, Alice Upside Down and Sydney White. She is the voice of Mia the bluebird on Disney’s new hit show Sofia The First, but her most well-known role to date is as the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Ashley has enjoyed hosting several TV specials, live shows and videos for Cartoon Network, Xbox Live and Disney. From specialized and educational female-oriented panels at conventions to public speaking and signing appearances as well as co-hosting such fan-focused events as Course of the Force (with Chris Hardwick) for Nerdist and co-hosting Disney’s Star Wars Weekends, Ashley has become recognized as one of the leading voices for fangirls.

Recognizing a need and a desire for merchandise created especially for the female fan, Ashley founded Her Universe, the first merchandise line for fangirls featuring fashion-forward designs. Ashley, a fan herself, believed that sci-fi-loving ladies deserved better than boxy tribute tees. Building on the initial foundation of her first license and relationship with the Star Wars brand, Ashley's product line has expanded to include pop culture powerhouses Doctor Who, Star Trek and The Walking Dead with plans in 2014 to premiere three new major licenses. But Her Universe is much more than a product line. From the very beginning, Ashley wanted to create an outlet for fangirls to connect with each other and to let them know that they are not alone in their geeky interests. You can read Ashley’s blogs, see her message and events along with her exclusive sci-fi apparel just for Geek Girls at www.heruniverse.com and via Facebook at (facebook.com/HerUniverse), Twitter(twitter.com/HerUniverse), Instagram (Instagram.com/heruniverse) and Tumblr (heruniverseoffical)
