The Star Trek community is mourning the death Sunday of Anton Yelchin, the child actor who grew up to entertain fans as Pavel Chekov in three Trek movies. He was killed early Sunday morning at his home.
Yelchin was 27.
The actor, according to TMZ, was supposed to meet friends Saturday evening for rehearsal, but didn’t show up. The friends later traveled to his house to check on Yelchin, finding him pinned by his running car against a brick mailbox. The car was in neutral, and authorities were unclear why he got out of the car.
Police do not suspect foul play, according to the news outlet.
“All of us at Paramount join the world in mourning the untimely passing of Anton Yelchin,” Paramount Pictures, which produces the Star Trek films, said in a statement, according to Variety. “As a member of the Star Trek family, he was beloved by so many and will be missed by all. We share our deepest condolences with his mother, father and family.”
