Such terrible news,
In a freak accident, Green Room star Anton Yelchin has tragically died at the young age of 27. Yelchin was best known for his role as Chekov in the blockbuster Star Trek franchise. His upcoming film Star Trek: Beyond is slated for release later this year, and Paramount has issued a statement regarding his death:
All of us at Paramount join the world in morning the untimely passing of Antony Yelchin. As a member of the Star Trek family, he was beloved by so many and he will missed by all. We share our deepest condolences with his mother, father and family.
Yelchin was a fantastic young actor who was taken away far too soon. He starred in one of the best films of the year so far, Green Room, and was really coming into his own as an actor. He should have had a long and successful career ahead of himself if not for this tragedy. This truly is heartbreaking.
Our deepest condolences go out to all of his friends and family.
