The Star of Netflix's Live-Action 'Avatar The Last AIrbender' is All-In On Aang

Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of Nickelodeon's most-loved series, and its reach is continuing to go new places. Despite a sour adaptation years ago, the animated series is giving live-action a second go at Netflix. Not long ago, the leads of the adaptation were made public at last, with Gordon Cormier set to portray the titular character, Avatar Aang, and the young actor has revealed how far he is willing to go to bring the beloved character to life in this brand new take on the fan-favorite world!

Twitter Outlet Avatar News shared the latest back and forth between Cormier and a fan, wherein the young actor made it clear that he was willing to shave his head to be Aang and would expect nothing less considering the majority of the series saw the young airbender sans hair:

Joining Cormier as Aang, Kiawentiio will play the role of the water bending Katara, Ian Ousley will be portraying the comic relief Sokka, and Dallas Liu will be playing the exiled prince of the Fire Nation, Zuko. Each of these young actors has already expressed their commitment and excitement for their respective roles, but Cormier upped the game with a commitment to shave his head once he begins stepping into the role of the Avatar and the last remaining member of the Water Tribe. Though this isn't the first time that we've seen a live-action take on the world of bending, many fans are confident that this series will overtake M. Night Shyamalan's take on the universe.

The live-action take of Avatar The Last Airbender has run into some controversy before the series hit the airwaves, mostly thanks to the departure of the original creators of the series, who would have been showrunners on this new take. Leaving due to "creative differences", creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko have re-joined Nickelodeon to head Avatar Studios where they'll once again dive into the world of bending that has become so popular over the years.
