Ex-APA Talent Agent Tyler Grasham Dies

Business

Longtime talent agent  Tyler Grasham died Friday, Oct. 21, of cancer, multiple sources tell Deadline. He was believed to be 54.

Until October 2017, Grasham was a top agent at APA specializing in child actors whose list of 50-some clients included Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things and Cameron Boyce of Disney’s Descendants franchise.

At the height of the #MeToo movement in October 2017, Grasham was put on leave of absence and then fired by APA amid allegations of sexual abuse and harassment against underage boys including potential clients. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office subsequently declined to file charges in four cases brought against Grasham.

Grasham went on to launch his own talent agency, Encompass, a couple of years later. He ran the agency alongside business partner Chris Solomon at the time of his death.
