I don’t really tend to do tribute posts but felt I should say a little something about Anton Yelchin as I really enjoyed his work as an actor. There are still quite a few films of his that I have yet to see but I first noticed him in Charlie Bartlett, a great film that deserved more recognition & his crazy character was to thank for making that film so enjoyable. I of course thought he was great as Chekov in Star Trek & Star Trek Into Darkness and it was cool seeing him in the adaptation of Odd Thomas, one of my favorite Dean Koontz books. But, of what I’ve seen, Charlie Bartlett is the one that really shows his unique talent. I highly recommend it if you haven’t seen it. What a sad loss.
R.I.P. Anton Viktorovich Yelchin (March 11, 1989 – June 19, 2016)
very very sad!!! i recall seeing him for the first time in the Stephen King adaptation of Hearts in Atlantis (2001).
Yes, very sad. : ( I did see that movie at the time but don’t remember it in the slightest. Should rewatch sometime – he must’ve been very young in it.
Very… it was 15 years ago
I whole-heartedly agree with you. He was a talent. Also great in Like Crazy, they’re great with Felicity Jones. And one of the best episodes of Criminal Minds is the one with him in it. R.I.P. 😔
He was so talented for such a young actor. Yeah, I keep meaning to watch Like Crazy as I really like Felicity Jones as well….
Charlie Bartlett!! That’s what I knew him from 😦 was watching the news this morning and I knew there was a ‘pinnacle’ role I remembered him for.
Nice tribute Miss Mutant.
Thanks, Emma. Such a sad loss – he was a very unique actor. I think he’d have gone on to be very big. I want to rewatch Charlie Bartlett now…
This is such sad news and so young, can’t believe he’s gone.
Yes, very sad & way too young. I think he’d have gone on to get bigger & bigger roles.
So, so sad.😢😢
I know. I really liked him – he was so talented & so young. Very sad.
Such a loss, and it feels almost… silly. I mean, hit by your own car on your own driveway! Poor guy.
Seen a few recommendations for Charlie Bartlett now, so I must keep an eye out for it.
Yes, very sad. It’s a shame there was a known fault with that vehicle & it had to take a death for it to be noticed. Yeah, Charlie Bartlett was a good one! Very different – I liked how original it was. You should check it out. : )
Reblogged this on parlor of horror and commented:
Sad, he was so young and a great talent.
😦 Such a sad loss, I really liked Yelchin, a great and entertaining actor.
I know. : ( He wasn’t quite like anybody else – I enjoyed all I saw him in. A very sad loss.
I didn’t even cop on that it was him also in Charlie Bartlett! 😦 now I’m sad again!
I know. : ( He was great in that role…
So sad. I loved Charlie Bartlett too. He obviously had so much to show us.
I know. He was great in that. What a sad loss – he was very unique.
I was very upset about this and yesterday, when I went to a movie, I saw the Star Trek trailer and there was a brief flash of him on this one. I felt like I was punched in the gut. It is strange how there are the occasional deaths of people we never actually knew that can hit us so strongly. Or maybe it is just that there have been so many this year.
Yes, it’s been a crazy year for celebrity deaths! Including my absolute favorite entertainer (David Bowie – I’ll never stop being upset about that one). Very sad about Yelchin, too – such a freak accident & he was so young. : (
So sad–I learned this news while I was on vacation and it just made me feel sick. 😦 I loved him in the Trek reboot films, and it will be hard to watch him in Star Trek Beyond next month. He should have played that role many times more.
I know – he was so young & such a unique talent. It’ll be very sad to see him in Star Trek Beyond. : ( Have you seen Charlie Bartlett?
I haven’t seen many of his films outside of Star Trek, but I’ve heard good things about Charlie Bartlett. I saw Robert Downey Jr. is in it, and he’s my favorite actor, so I’ll have to check it out.
I hope you like it. : ) It’s an odd one! I liked how “different” it was for a teen movie.
