STAR TREK BEYOND & TERMINATOR SALVATION Star Anton Yelchin Passes Away At 27

We have some sad news to report on this Father's Day as reports are coming in that Star Trek Beyond star Anton Yelchin was killed early this morning in a tragic freak accident...

It's with a heavy heart that we must report that actor Anton Yelchin has died at the age of 27. 

TMZ reports that Yelchin was found at his home pinned by his own vehicle and a brick mailbox early Sunday morning. The police do not suspect any foul play was involved. His car was in neutral and the engine was still running when his body was discovered. His driveway is also said to be on a steep incline. An LAPD spokesperson later told The Hollywood Reporter: "It appears he momentarily exited his car and it rolled backward, causing trauma that led to his death."

His publicist released the following statement: “Actor Anton Yelchin was killed in a fatal traffic collision early this morning, his family requests you respect their privacy at this time.” 


Yelchin was best known for his role as Pavel Chekov in the current Star Trek trilogy and as Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation. His promising career also featured credits in a wide range of films including Fright Night, Green Room, The Driftless Area, Burying the Ex, Rudderless, The Smurfs 2, Like Crazy, Charlie Bartlett, Odd Thomas, and Alpha Dog. He also recently completed work on the indies We Don't Belong Here, Rememory, and Porto, which are all due out later this year.

Yelchin, an only child, is survived by his parents.

Our deepest condolences.
