“Anton Yelchin is a superstar. That kid’s going places. He is wildly and effortlessly talented.”
I shared my sentiments about Anton Yelchin in my review of Green Room just a couple of months ago. He was quite simply charmed and it came across both on screen and off.
He passed early this morning in what appears to be a car accident. Details are still unclear.
His co-stars — past and present — are flooding various social media outlets with words of adoration, sorrow, and disbelief.
Anton Yelchin — an only child — is survived by his parents. I wish for a moment of solace in their grief knowing how well-loved, esteemed, and gifted their son was in his time here.
Anton Yelchin was 27 years old. May he rest peacefully.
