“All of us at Paramount join the world in mourning the untimely passing of Anton Yelchin. As a member of the Star Trek family, he was beloved by so many and he will be missed by all,” representatives for the studio said.
“We share our deepest condolences with his mother, father and family.”
‘Anton was our little brother. But only by years; he was as wise and clever and intellectually curious as anyone we ever knew”, the team wrote.
“His laugh was preposterous – you couldn’t hear it and not laugh yourself. He was funny, edgy, wild and talented beyond measure. His focus and dedication was admirable, as was his love of family, friends, literature and music.” We loved Anton, at work or at play.
We are all shocked and numb and devastated by the world’s loss of an extraordinary young man. To his family, we send you our love during this impossible time. We will miss Anton forever.”
The tributes didn’t stop there, though. From Tom Hiddleston to Anna Kendrick and Chris Evans, the tributes poured in from Yelchin’s Hollywood peers.
Absolutely devastated to hear about Anton Yelchin. He was such a gifted, natural actor & a deeply kind man. My thoughts are with his family.
