As the world mourns the loss of Anton Yelchin, a brilliant young actor with a vast array of films, JoBlo put together this cool video as a heart-warming tribute.
Actor Anton Yelchin (best known as Chekov in the recent Star Trek reboot) was killed in a freak accident; crushed by his own car. He has a number of projects still to be released, including this summer’s Star Trek Beyond and sci-fi mystery Rememory with Peter Dinklage.
JJ Abrams, who directed Yelchin in the first two Star Trek films, paid tribute on Twitter saying he was “brilliant”. “You were kind. You were funny as hell, and supremely talented. And you weren’t here nearly long enough. Missing you,” he wrote.
On Twitter, stars from Elijah Wood to William Shatner also shared their condolences.
Absolutely shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Anton Yelchin’s passing.
