MythBusters and White Rabbit Project host Grant Imahara dies suddenly at 49

15th July 2020
Grant-#2The team at Beyond Productions is deeply saddened by the passing of our long-standing friend and colleague, Grant Imahara. 

Grant was a talented communicator with an inspired engineering mind, informed by a deep knowledge of popular culture.  He was quiet, mannered, highly professional, and one of the kindest people I or any of the team have had the pleasure to work with.  His television legacy will be the inspiration he provides for people of all ages who love the intersect of entertainment and science. 

Grant's relationship with Beyond started 15 years ago when he joined MythBusters as an onscreen builder on series 3 in February 2005. His talent quickly shone through and he became a host and worked with Build Team colleagues Kari Byron and Tory Belleci, appearing on the program through Series 10 in 2013, with a revisit for the MythBusters reunion Special in 2015.

Grant also collaborated with Beyond on the production of the White Rabbit Project for Netflix in 2016/2017, again with fellow hosts Kari and Tory.

Our thoughts at this very sad time are with his family. Grant was a wonderful man and a generous colleague. He will be very much missed.
