Adam Savage’s Biography:
Ever since Adam Savage was a young boy in Westchester County, New York, he has been creating different kinds of objects and gadgets. He was born on July 15, 1967 and at the early age of five was already building his own toys. Having a father who was painter, animator and director gave Savage a lot of opportunities to explore his own creativity. When Savage was just a child actor, he worked with his father on the highly popular children’s television show Sesame Street. As he grew older, he followed in his father’s footsteps, becoming an animator, graphic set and toy designer, and a carpenter. He spent a lot of time developing his craft in creating special effects and consequently worked on big blockbusters like Star Wars Episodes I and II and A.I. Savage is currently co-hosting Mythbusters
, a scientific reality television program from the Discovery channel.
On the show, Savage is noticeably childish and foolish, and his behavior often causes him to sustain minor injuries. His famous quotes from the show have arisen from his entertaining yet very dangerous experiments in the show. One quote was derived after some of Savage’s hair was burned off during an explosion test. He also sustained an injury to his lower lip when he was studying a device called the “Homemade Hovercraft.”
