Kirby Morrow

A talented voiceover artist, screen actor, writer, and comedian, Kirby Morrow works on a number of anime series and cartoons, while his face is most recognizable to sci-fi fans from a brief run on "Stargate: Atlantis." Having trained in theater and performed on the stand-up circuit in his early career, Morrow developed a fantastic knack for voiceover work, with the range and ability to portray dozens of varied voices for different types of characters in many styles of animation. He launched his voiceover career in the extremely popular "Ranma ½" anime series in 1993, and soon had steady work, lending his voice to dozens of English-language versions of Japanese anime classics throughout the '90s. In 2000 he voiced the part of Cyclops in the "X-Men: Evolution" animated series, which ran until 2003. Meanwhile, his handsome, boy-next-door looks landed him plenty of smaller screen roles, and eventually a few episodes of "Stargate SG-1." This led to his being cast as United States Air Force Captain Dave Kleinman on the spinoff "Stargate: Atlantis" in 2005. That same year, the comedic short he wrote and directed, "The Boxing Day Classic," won top prize at the Whistler International Film Festival. Morrow carried on performing in dozens of animations throughout the 2000s, too, notably as Miroku in the anime magna "InuYasha: The Final Act." Kirby Morrow died on November 19, 2020 at the age of 47.
