Mythbusters host Grant Imahara dies at 49

Host of both Mythbusters and Netflix’s The White Rabbit Project, Grant Imahara passed away suddenly following a brain aneurysm.

Imahara was an electrical engineer, roboticist, and worked for companies like THX and Industrial Light and Magic helping create projects like the Star Wars prequels among many others.

Friends and co-hosts have been in disbelief at the sudden loss, including Kari Byron, who said in a tweet “Heartbroken and in shock tonight. We were just talking on the phone. This isn’t real.”

With more than 200 episodes of Mythbusters under his belt along with his countless contributions to film, including The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolution, Jurrasic Park, Galaxy Quest, and more, he leaves behind not only fond memories but a lasting legacy.
