Known to many as a belovedly geeky co-host on the series "MythBusters" (Discovery, 2002-), Grant Imahara entered the entertainment industry through a seemingly unlikely avenue: engineering. Imahara earned a degree in electrical engineering from UCLA, but it was while he was enrolled there that he realized his true passion for entertainment. He briefly considered switching majors to screenwriting, but after working with professor Tomlinson Holman at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, Imahara was inspired to stick with engineering, and put his skills to work in a film and TV setting. Imahara began working as an engineer at LucasFilm in 1993. He would eventually go to work for Industrial Light & Magic, personally helping to rebuild the Energizer Bunny for a major ad campaign, and working in the model making department for films like "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" (1997) and "Star Wars: Episode One - The Phantom Menace" (1999). Imahara would also become one of only three official operators for the famous "Star Wars" robot R2D2. In 2005, Imahara was asked by his friend and sometime employer Jamie Hyneman to join the series "MythBusters" as one of the show's knowledgeable hosts, who put popular misconceptions and urban legends to the scientific test. He would remain with the series until 2014.
