The Cast Of Mythbusters Reacts To Grant Imahara's Death

It's always sad to find out that we've lost an adored celebrity, and it was no different when Grant Imahara unexpectedly died on July 13, 2020 at the age of 49 after suffering a brain aneurysm, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Many fans will remember Imahara from his days using his skills as an electrical engineer and roboticist on Discovery's Mythbusters, as well as on Netflix's White Rabbit Project. Imahara's passing comes not even a year following the loss of Jessi Combs, another former Mythbusters host who died in a high-speed crash in August 2019.

"We are heartbroken to hear this sad news about Grant," a representative for Discovery said in a statement, per THR. "He was an important part of our Discovery family and a really wonderful man. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family."

Along with those from the network and countless grieving fans, Imahara's former castmates took to social media to react to the sudden and devastating loss.

Grant Imahar's former castmates are 'in shock' and 'heartbroken' over his death

When the news of Grant Imahara's passing broke in July 2020, those who had worked alongside him were quick to express their heartache over the situation. Kari Byron, who starred with Imahara on both Mythbusters and White Rabbit Project, took to Twitter to share a photo of herself with Imahara and their fellow on-screen host Tory Belleci and added, "Somedays I wish I had a time machine."

Along with tweeting another photo of herself and Imahara presumably from filming one of their shows, as well as a pic of her friend and cohost with a puppy, Byron wrote, "We had so many adventures. You taught me so much." She added, "Heartbroken and in shock tonight. We were just talking on the phone. This isn't real."

Belleci was just as shocked and devastated, tweeting, "I just cannot believe it. I don't even know what to say. My heart is broken. Goodbye buddy."

"I'm at a loss. No words," Adam Savage wrote, also using Twitter to send out a message. While it doesn't look like the final Mythbusters host Jamie Hyneman has made a public statement yet, Savage also noted that "Grant was a truly brilliant engineer, artist and performer, but also just such a generous, easygoing, and gentle PERSON." He added, "Working with Grant was so much fun. I'll miss my friend."

R.I.P. Grant Imahara. Our condolences go out to the star's family and friends.
