Describe Kirby Morrow here, but first would you consider bearing his child?

Kirby Robert Morrow (August 28, 1973 – November 18, 2020) was a Canadian voice actor, stand-up comedian, and television and stage actor born in Jasper, Alberta. Working mostly in Vancouver, British Columbia, he became a staple of English-language anime dubs since 1999, his most famous roles including Teru Mikami (Death Note), Van Fanel (The Vision of Escaflowne), Billy Katagiri (Mobile Suit Gundam 00), Rey Za Burrel (Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny), Trowa Barton (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing), Miroku (Inuyasha), Son Goku (in the Ocean Group dub of Dragon Ball Z) and Hot Shot (Transformers: Cybertron).

To non-anime fans he was Scott Summers aka Cyclops in X-Men: Evolution, Raimi Matthews in the voice version of Broken Saints, and Cole in Ninjago.

Like many Vancouver-based actors he frequently appeared as minor characters in American live-action series, such as Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Fringe. His most well-known live action role being Cpt. Dave Kleinman in Stargate Atlantis.

Despite dubbing animation from Japan he never crossed paths with everyone's favorite pink sphere who eats things.

Morrow unexpectedly passed away on November 18, 2020, from issues related to a later revealed history of substance abuse, eight days after his father Tom died. He was 47 years old.

In 2021, his brother Casey set up a scholarship fund in his name to help anyone who wants to pursue studies in the performing arts.
