Sad news to hear that actor Anton Yelchin has died.
According to a statement by the Los Angeles Police Department. Yelchin stepped out of his car in the driveway of his Studio City home at around 1:10 a.m. PT (Sunday, June 19, 2016) when the car slid backwards and pinned him against a brick pillar and a security fence, causing trauma that led to his death.
Yelchin was known as Pavel Chekov in the “Star Trek” reboot film series. He played Jacob Clarke in the Steven Spielberg miniseries “Taken” and films such as “Along Came a Spider,” “Hearts in Atlantis,” “Terminator Salvation,” “Charlie Bartlett,” “Fright Night,” “Like Crazy,” and “Only Lovers Left Alive.” Additionally, Yelchin was in the TV series, “Huff.”
I loved Anton Yelchin so much. He was a true artist – curious, beautiful, courageous. He was a great pal and a great son. I'm in ruins.
