Anton Yelchin R.I.P.

Sadly, the To Watch Pile has to report of the tragic death of actor Anton Yelchin.

Yelchin was best known as Chekov in the re-imagining of the original Star Trek series, but horror fans would also know him from zom-rom-com Burying the Ex, the remake of Fright Night and his recasting of Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation.

Oddly, just this morning I was watching an interview by Norm from Adam Savage’s Tested with Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine and Karl Urban, and they were talking about how the Star Trek family felt like a ‘real’ family. The To Watch Pile would like to extend our condolences to both Yelchin’s real and extended Star Trek family at this difficult time.
