Episode 4 of Apple TV+ sci-fi drama Dark Matter featured a tribute to a late crew member before the credits rolled.


The tribute at the end of the episode read: "In memory of our friend, and greens foreman, Arturo Gamino."

For those who don't know, a greens foreman is a production staff member responsible for obtaining and taking care of anything "green" or natural used on set, including plants, grass, trees, sand etc.

Gamino had worked on the Dark Matter production before his passing at 36 years old on 24th June 2023. An obituary was posted by his family around the time of his passing.

As well as his work on Dark Matter, the greens foreman had art department credits on several productions, including 2021's Candyman and TV series Fargo, Next and Utopia.

Dark Matter appears to be Gamino's final project.

The series is based on Blake Crouch's novel, and is led by Joel Edgerton, who plays a physicist in Chicago who is warped into an alternate version of his life and whose family is at risk from a doppelgänger.
