Angelique Maverick (b. 2nd October, 1970), known professionally as Ashley Maverick, is a Dutch-born Kuboian animator, illustrator, actress, voice actress, singer, television personality and author. Of both Dutch and German heritage, she has been credited as one of the people who helped Kuboia create its own culture and identity. She is often credited as the creator of the Kantasy animation style and genre.
Angelique Maverick was born on 2nd October, 1970 to a German father and Dutch mother in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The three lived in the Netherlands until 1977, when Angelique's parents divorced, and she moved with her mother to Kuboia. Both Angelique and her mother were responsible with helping Kuboia becoming its own country a decade later.
In 2012, it was reported that Angelique was angry with the growing prominence of computer animation over traditional animation. In a 2014 interview, she stated that computer animation is "the lazy, less creative way of making cartoons".
Angelique is the paternal younger half-sister of Juliet Diamonds. She also has a maternal half-sister called Marina, who was born in 1982.
Marriage to Quu Tidals
From 2001 to 2006, Angelique was married to fellow voice actor Quu Tidals. Their marriage faced heavy criticism due to their sixteen-year age gap, as well as Quu only being fourteen years old at the time of their wedding. The couple were forced to divorce in January 2006, following new laws in Kuboia.
