Tribute: Anton Yelchin

Posted on June 20, 2016 at 8:57 am

We mourn the death of 27-year-old Anton Yelchin, a gifted young actor who died in a terrible accident.

As a child, he appeared opposite Anthony Hopkins in “Hearts in Atlantis.”

He was a teenage fixer in “Charlie Bartlett.”

The Russian-born actor was best known for his performance as Chekov in the “Star Trek” films.

But my favorite of his performances was in “Like Crazy,” one of the tenderest love stories in many years.

May his memory be a blessing.
