27 year old actor, Anton Yelchin, tragically died on the morning of June 19th, 2016.
Apparently, he was supposed to meet with friends for a rehearsal but never showed up. Following a collision, he was found pinned between his own vehicle and a brick mailbox at his home in San Fernando Valley. While further details appear to be unknown, police do not suspect foul play.
Yelchin is most well known for his role as Chekov in the most recent Star Trek films as well as this year’s upcoming sequel, Star Trek Beyond. He also starred as Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation, the title character in Odd Thomas, and Zack Mazursky in Alpha Dog. Most recently, he starred in Jeremy Saulnier’s neo-Nazi skinhead thriller, Green Room.
This is surely a case of someone who was taken far too soon. All respects go to Yelchin’s family and friends.
