When Anton’s life was cut short at age 27, his parents created the Anton Yelchin Foundation to honor his memory.
When Anton was six months old, he came to America with his parents as refugees.
Anton’s parents were both noted professional figure skaters and artists, and Anton took skating lessons before shifting to acting.
Yelchin is perhaps best known and loved for his recreation as the Star Trek character Pavel Chekov in the rebooted Star Trek movie series.
When Yelton did not show up for a rehearsal Saturday evening, his friends went to his home, where they found him pinned between the back of his vehicle and a brick pillar, which made up part of the fence around his property.
