Earlier this week, Netflix officially announced that they would renew Avatar: The Last Airbender for two more seasons. This would allow the creators of the live-action adaption to fully complete Aang’s journey as the Avatar, as the original series only lasted three seasons. A few characters that could appear in future seasons were cut in season one. As this show is “a remix, not a cover,” it’s not unreasonable to assume characters, timelines, and plot points change depending on the season.

Here is a list of actors we fancast in major roles for season 2 of Avatar: The Last Airbender (also read our fancast back for season 1).

Diana Tsoy – Toph Beifong

It’s hard not to mention Diana Tsoy for the role of Toph Beifong. The actress has not been in many projects but has a small role in 2023’s Peter Pan & Wendy on Disney+. In that reimagining, she plays a “Lost Boy” alongside other girls and boys. She is pretty sassy with her few lines in her never-ending fight with Captain Hook’s crew. Beyond that, she put together a small fan film alongside the stunt crew of Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender in 2021’s Toph. While that seems a little too “on-the-nose,” the most important part of the entire short wasn’t her martial arts skills; it was her lack of eye movement while fighting. The character is supposed to be blind, and being able to do stunts without eye movement (something Charlie Cox doesn’t need to deal with as Daredevil) is awe-inspiring. She is currently Korean-Canadian, 14 (the same age as Gordon Cormier), and has practiced Wushu for several years (Action Reel below).
