That's sad. Dying at age 38. That's just incredibly depressing. Mr. Magasiva had a lot more to do in life. Well,rest in peace. It was too soon for you to go. You deserved better than this. Sad

Very unfortunate, especially given his age.
Shame they didn't take advantage of the theme last year and have him guest star.

This is sad, I remember watching Ninja Storm arround 2004 and I remeber the episode were Shane's brother found out his secret identity, that was a great episode. May he rest in peace and I send my condolences to his family.

Shane's brother was played by Pua's real-life brother, Robbie Magasiva. He couldn't hold an American accent worth a damn, but that did nothing to diminish the charm of that episode.

He's had a difficult few years since the DUIs and losing his gigs. Last I saw from his feed, he was working construction. He may also, implicitly, have been dealing with demons of a different sort. My thoughts are with his family, his friends and his peers in the fraternities of Power Rangers and New Zealand entertainment.
