AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER’s Gordon Cormier on Tonight Show

I really love staff work — Gordon Cormier.

Gordon Cormier aka Aang of Netflix’s live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender impressed The Tonight Show audience this week with his poise and martial arts skills.

The 14-year-old Canadian actor showed off his staff fighting to Jimmy Fallon, doing flips on the stage.

After a huge campaign, Avatar: The Last Airbender launched as Netflix’s #1 global series in its premiere week — with 21.2 million views

That’s better than the premiere of Netflix’s other big anime-adaption One Piece.

Gordon Cormier has been enjoying the promotional tour. Here he is with other Netflix stars at Fan Expo Vancouver, four days ahead of the show’s February 22nd premiere.
