We’ve just got word that a bright young star in Hollywood has left us too soon. He’s a star of the new Star Trek films as well as several well-known indies. Rest In Peace, Anton Yelchin.
Via The AP:
Anton Yelchin, a charismatic and rising actor best known for playing Chekov in the new “Star Trek” films, has died at the age of 27. He was killed in a fatal traffic collision early Sunday morning, his publicist, Jennifer Allen confirmed.
Yelchin started small with roles in indie films and various television shows, before breaking out in films like the crime thriller “Alpha Dog” and the teenage comedy “Charlie Bartlett.” His biggest role to date has been in the rebooted “Star Trek” films — the third of which, “Star Trek Beyond” comes out in July.
This is very sad. Yelchin was fantastic in the Star Trek films and starred in several indie films that I enjoyed greatly, including Alpha Dog. He will be missed.
