Anton Viktorovich Yelchin (Russian: Анто́н Ви́кторович Ельчи́н; March 11, 1989 June 19, 2016) was a Russian-American film and television actor, best known for playing Pavel Chekov in the ''Film/StarTrek'' reboot films. His parents, champion figure skaters, fled the former Soviet Union when he was 6 months old. Immediately sucking at figure skating, Anton found a calling in acting, in which his parents supported him. He played mostly in intense dramas, and developed his career playing cute little boys, and then complex young men [[ComingOfAgeStory coming of age]].

* ActorSharedBackground: Like Walter Koenig and Chekov, he was of Russian descent.



* FakeAmerican: He was born in Russia. Although raised in America, he was still taught his native language along with English.
* FakeRussian: Anton said many times that the Russian language does contain the V sound, but he invoked playing [[Film/StarTrek Ensign Chekov]] with the W/V switch out of respect to Creator/WalterKoenig's version, and because it was [[RuleOfFunny funnier]].
--> "Vodka is, like, the easiest word to say."



* PlayingAgainstType: His role in the announced 2018 TV adaptation of Creator/StephenKing's crime-thriller ''Literature/MrMercedes'' would have seen him playing a deranged serial killer who is almost a direct inversion of his usual character type. Sadly, he died before it was filmed.

The particular model of car was later subject to a recall to fix an issue that could prevent the parking brake from properly engaging; the car rolled down the slope and pinned him against a brick pillar. His parents have filed a lawsuit alleging wrongful death.[[/note]] It left a lot of people surprised and saddened by that. Though the examiners did at least report that it was likely over quickly, due to his lungs being crushed.
