His voice actor is a...rough subject. I'll just talk about his first voice actor for the time being, and discuss that hornet's nest when the changeover happens. He is/was voiced by Mako, a legendary actor whose famous roles include Aku from Samurai Jack, The Wizard from Conan the Barbarian, and many other works. The guy is/was phenomenal, and his role as Iroh did more than solidify the character, he fortified it. His voice made the character early on, and for that I praise him.
Iroh is Red, yes, obviously, but his second color is interesting. The Red is where his passion, drive, and individualism comes from. His second color is White. He says he studied Waterbending, and it shows in his fighting. He also is very moral and believes in Order. A very White character. Odd how he and his nephew have the same colors?
