Anton Yelchin (1989-2016)

To me, the new cast of the Star Trek movies from 2009 on could never recapture or replace the magic of the original cast.

However, they have created their own new magic, and Anton Yelchin especially brought an infectious charm and good-natured comic relief to his interpretation of the Enterprising navigator and sometime engineer Pavel Chekov.

Hearing this afternoon of his untimely accidental death was truly horrific and shocking, especially just one month before the release of his third big-screen outing as Chekov, by which time he had completely grown into the role and made it unmistakably his own.

May Anton Yelchin's spirit live long and prosper, and peace and love to his family, friends, and loved ones.
