Anton Viktorovich Yelchin was an American film actor of Russian-Jewish origin.

Anton Yelchin was the only child of Irina Korina and Viktor Yelchin, who emigrated to the United States when Anton was six months old. His parents are a former professional figure skating couple.

His film debut was released in 2000 at the age of eleven years in the independent film A Man Is Mostly Water by Fred Parnes and his series debut in an episode of Emergency Room. He won the Young Artist Award in 2002 for his role in Hearts in Atlantis. From then on Yelchin, whose hobbies were chess games, stood in front of the camera in numerous feature films and TV series.

He took his first lead role in 2007 with Charlie Bartlett on the side of Robert Downey junior, Hope Davis and Kat Dennings. In 2009 Yelchin starred in Star Trek, the role of navigation officer Pavel Chekov, which was embodied in the original films by Walter Koenig. In the same year, the role followed as Kyle Reese in the sequel to the Terminator series Terminator: Salvation. In 2013 he was again seen as Chekov in Star Trek Into Darkness.

Yelchin died on 19 June 2016 at the age of 27 years following an accident. He was crushed on his property in Studio City (a Los Angeles district in the San Fernando Valley) by his own rolling-back car at the gate of the garage entrance. A malfunction on the car can not be excluded.
