Creative types will often find themselves branching out from time to time and experimenting with different outlets, as evident with the talent on this month’s Supanova line-up. It’s not enough the below names have mastered the realm of TV and film, they’re also great musicians.
At 13 years old, it seems Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is well ahead of the game. She scored a wealth of praise and numerous awards for her compelling portrayal as Eleven, but the British talent is also an amazing singer. Mid-2016, Brown posted a handful of covers to YouTube, and earlier this year made her music video debut in the new Sigma clip. She’s also been killing it on talk shows during press for Stranger Things 2.
Going from a Power Ranger to an anime icon, it’s not surprising Johnny Yong Bosch’s vocal capabilities lend themselves to rock. The prolific creative talent has a remarkable voice and has produced a wealth of albums and EPs with his band, Eyeshine. If he weren’t highly sought after in the acting game, he’d no doubt be a full-time musician.
He’s a rockstar on and off the screen. Buffy star James Marsters has taken to the Supanova stage in the past with his acoustic in hand to serenade fans with solo hits and numbers from his alt-rock/country band, Ghost Of The Robot, which features his son, Sullivan, on guitar and vocals.
With such an intense acting schedule and frequent convention appearances around the globe, it’s surprising Marsters has had time to pen six records.
Another member of the Whedonverse, Christian Kane has mastered Southern rock with the aptly titled Kane, a band who celebrate their 20th anniversary next year. As an actor, Kane’s forged a solid fanbase through stints on cult favourites Angel, Leverage and The Librarians, the latter of which just wrapped filming its fourth season.
Now… how do we get all these guests on stage together?
