Zach Tyler Eisen isn’t a newcomer to the big screen – or at least his voice is not. He came onto the scene as far back as 1999 when he made a guest appearance in his television debut on an episode of the 1999 drama Entropy, where he played the character, Lucas. Since then Zach became even busier leading into the 2000s.
With time, he took up more roles as a voice actor and lent his talent to popular animated projects such as The Ant Bully and Avatar: The Last Airbender. After 2008, the voice actor seemed to fall off the face of the planet, at least in terms of his acting career. Turns out he has been away for a legitimate reason, and he is likely to make a comeback and fulfill a great career.
Who is Zach Tyler Eisen?
The voice actor was born in Connecticut, USA, on September 23, 1993. Nothing much is known about his education prior to High School, but he attended Westhill High School.
He was 5 years old when he started his career as an actor, appearing in the internet movie Entropy in 1999. In the same year, he started work on the family animation Little Bill created by Bill Cosby. He voiced the character Andrew Mulligan from 1999 to 2002 in a total of 14 episodes.

In 2005, he started work on the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. He voiced all his lines for 60 out of its 61 episodes via satellite from his home state in Connecticut.

In 2006, he voiced the character of Lucas Nickle in the animated film The Ant Bully and reprised the role in the short series readaptation and the accompanying video game.

Zach Tyler Eisen did his last voicing role for yet another Avatar video game, Avatar: The Last Airbender – Into the Inferno in 2008.
Where Is The Voice Actor Now?
Zach Tyler Eisen disappeared from acting in 2008 after the completion of work for Avatar: The Last Airbender. In 2012, he disappeared completely when his social media went dead. Thankfully, it was not because of anything tragic.
After 2008, the actor decided to go back to school and from the path he has taken, it seems he is preparing for a career in media and entertainment. In 2011, Zach Tyler Eisen enrolled at Syracuse University for a degree in Public Communications from the S.I. New House School of Public Communications, with a major in Television-Radio-Film.
While he was studying at Syracuse, Zach took on a lot of roles to help stretch his expertise. He worked for Fe Fe Entertainment as a video editor, and also for WAER Sports Radio as a desk writer. On the television series Loud and Clear, the former voice actor fulfilled the role of co-executive producer.
After his time at Syracuse ended in 2015, Zach Tyler Eisen continued to work in media and television. He took up the role of production assistant for a few companies. Some of the notable ones include Boy Wonder Productions, NBC Universal Inc., and Funny or Die. Following this period, in September 2016, he was hired at Condé Nast, a mass media company, as a videographer.
Eisen’s life has been relatively quiet as far as the media spotlight is concerned, however, a few details and rumors concerning him have managed to maintain interest since he became inactive. Rumour has it that as at 2014, he belonged to a band where he played the guitar. He also played football while in College and even went blonde at some point.
He was also rumored to be dating fellow Avatar actor Mae Whitman who voiced the character – Katara in Avatar: The Last Airbender, who was also Aang’s love interest on the series. Like Zach Tyler Eisen, she has also lent her voice to many animated series and cartoons like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as April O’Neil, and Young Justice as Wonder Girl. Her on-camera roles have included guest appearances in tv series and movies like Parenthood and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Although the rumor eventually went away, Zach and Whitman never confirmed nor denied the rumors.
