Uncle Iroh is my favorite character. He is complex, wise, and flat-out funny. His relationship with the troubled Prince Zuko is one of my favorite things about the series. Their interaction is great and it gives Iroh many opportunities to show his nephew Zuko what it means to be a man. During Seasons 1 and 2 the character was voiced by the actor Mako – who I absolutely love – and the most recent episode, Tales of Ba Sing Se, had a short story dedicated to the actor who died before Season 2 aired. The character lives on, but the heart and soul of the character are gone. I hope that Mako’s replacement captures the magic that seemed to come to Mako so effortlessly.
