Oh fuck. Ninja Storm got me back into Power Rangers after such a long time away. He was so good. I wished to have seen him return. Damn. Rest in Power, Pua.

Here's Glenn's (Yellow PRNS) tribute to Pua

https://www.instagram.com/p/BxT72IGgldF/
Glenn linked to Pua's instagram, who's last post was only a week ago, and he seemed to be pretty chill, travelling, hanging with his wife and kids. Sigh....it's cliche but it's true, you really never know.

Truly saddened by this unexpected passing...

I enjoyed Pua as Shane and it's hard to accept that he's gone. It's like a family member...

Man what sad news, I thought I read the thread title wrong and I had to make a second take. I can't believe this, my condolences to his friend's and family.

I heard about this an hour ago and was attempting to explain things to my husband but I kept going off on tangents and rambling on about other things. Because.

I cried. This hurts.

That's a tragedy he passed away. Like others, I too thought I had misread the title. I guess it's more of a shock because he was so young. Condolences to his friends and family.

...in the finale when he said "we may not be Power Rangers, but we still have power" that line always resonated with me.
The delivery of that line always stuck with me too.

Waking up to this news was genuinely gut-busting. Shane was a favourite Red of mine, and that's all down to Pua. He seemed like such a nice, outgoing person. This is so sad.

"You wanna make something of it? Waldo?"

That line, right there, told me how much I was going to love 'Ninja Storm'.

Considering how young most Ranger actors are, we shouldn't be hearing about any of them dying - even the MMPRs are only just turning 50. This is probably the biggest shock to this fandom since Thuy Trang's car crash, 18 years ago. RIP Pua.

Pua's death has made it to Daily Mail. Not sure what they see as 'Movies'.

The headline's just missing a comma. It should say "Power Rangers, movies and New Zealand soap Shortland Street". Movies meaning Samoan Wedding.

The year he started in Shortland Street is wrong there too. 1994? He'd have only been 13! I think they mean 2004 - the year after he did Ninja Storm.

Absolutely tragic loss. He was a great ranger and I'm sure a wonderful person to be around. The ninja storm cast always seemed like a great bunch so would have been nice to meet him.

Do we have a cause of death yet? As far as I knew he was in good health.

Wasn't he also in 30 Days of Night as well?

This sucks that he passed. Feel for the family.

We've lost Trini, Udonna and now Shane as well?

Such a pity. Ninja Storm was the first season I've watched on cable TV and one of the responsible for making me be crazy about PR again.

RIP.

I'm not sure, but I think that actually warrants it's own thread, since he was a Ranger actor.
