Anton Yelchin is a Russian-born actor who has been acting since the age of 10. The first time I took notice of him was in Along Came a Spider, which was immediately followed up with Hearts in Atlantis. Over the next few years, he appeared in a number of television shows, and was seen in the spotlight once again in Fierce People, Alpha Dog, “Huff”, and Charlie Bartlett. 2009 was a huge year for him, as he played Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation and Chekov in Star Trek. He is in the upcoming Mel Gibson / Jodi Foster vehicle, The Beaver, this summer’s The Smurfs, and next year’s Star Trek sequel.
