‘Mythbusters’ co-host Grant Imahara Dies at 49


Grant Imahara, known best for his appearances on Mythbusters and White Rabbit Project, has died at age 49. A recent autopsy revealed the cause of death to be a brain aneurysm.

Imahara was an electrical engineer and robotist by training. He joined Mythbusters during its third season, where he offered his technical prowess to develop robots and other electronics in order to test popular myths for their accuracy. After leaving Mythbusters in 2014 along with co-hosts Kari Byron and Tori Belleci, he joined White Rabbit Project on Netflix.

Imahara was also a major part of the film scene. He drove stunt cars, installed lights on Star Wars‘ R2-D2, and plenty more.

Imahara’s co-hosts on both Mythbusters and White Rabbit Project have been posting their condolences, memories, and favorite pictures on Twitter.
