Kirby Robert Morrow (August 28, 1973 - November 18, 2020[1][2][3][4]) was a Canadian voice actor. He was the voice actor for Cole, Cole's father Lou, Bizarro Cole, Mr. Pale, Gravis, as well as other various minor characters that appear in Ninjago.

His unexpected passing was announced by his brother, Casey Morrow, via Facebook on November 19, 2020.[3] After two days, he said they "do not have any official news on what happened and won't for about a week or so," but he promised to inform all as soon as they can.[5] In the LEGO Group's statement on Twitter, it was confirmed that he had finished his lines for the 2021 episodes, which will be dedicated to his memory.[6] He died eight days later than his father, Tom Morrow.[7] Many other people, who had previously worked with him, also honored him via Twitter[8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29][30] and Instagram.[31][32][33] Sam Vincent also wrote a song dedicated to him.[34]

On November 30, 2020, it was revealed that Kirby Morrow passed away due to a "long history of substance abuse." The website also mentioned that he struggled with mental health.[35]

In early December 2020, Casey Morrow set up a scholarship fund to honor Kirby's legacy by providing opportunities for aspiring actors who otherwise may not have access to a performing arts education.[36]
