C2E2 2020 was the last big event I attended before the pandemic hit. Barbara Dunkelman was one of the last celebrities I met there.
Born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Dunkelman is an actress and voiceover talent, among other things. She perhaps best known as the voice of Yang Xiao Long in the web series RWBY. She is also the Creative Director at Rooster Teeth, self-billed as producing premium dumb content on Roku, Xbox, Android TV, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV.
Another talent Dunkelman has is selfie-taking. At C2E2, Dunkelman took charge and eased the pressure on fans meeting her by taking the selfies herself.
Dunkelman suffers from Hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating. I wonder if she has been treated since the discovery. Comic Cons must be a problem for Dunkelman, as they are usually warm. For the record, she seemed completely fine at C2E2.
C2E2 2022 runs August 5-7. I will be back "On the Beat" as always. Go to C2E2.com for info and scheduling. Check back here for my recurring coverage.
