This article is about a/an actor in Power Rangers Ninja Storm.

Pua Magasiva (August 10, 1980 - May 11, 2019) was a Samoan-New Zealand actor who played Shane Clarke in Power Rangers Ninja Storm. He reprised this role in Power Rangers Dino Thunder, appearing in the two-part crossover episode Thunder Storm.

Following a series of domestic assault incidents towards his wife, Lizz Sadler, Magasiva committed suicide at his Wellington, New Zealand home on May 11, 2019, at only 38 years old.

This makes him the fifth youngest cast member of any Power Rangers series, as well as the first male actor (and third overall) to portray a Power Ranger to pass away. He is survived by Sadler, as well as two children.
