Avatar: The Last Airbender was so popular during 2020's quarantine season. Why does General Iroh have a Zuko voice? People who have watched the series keenly wonder who voiced Iroh in Korra because his voice is similar to Zuko's. In the Korra episode, Basco performs as Iroh. Voice artists pass their voices from one character's generation to the other. Iroh is Zuko's grandson; therefore, it makes sense for the characters to share the same voice artist.
