Anton Yelchin from movies like Star Trek or Alpha Dog, but for Horror fans like us, it was his roles in Fright Night, Odd Thomas, Burying the Ex, and this year's breakout Indie hit, Green Room, that endeared him to us. Especially Odd Thomas; there was just something special to us about that movie, and his performance.
He a critically acclaimed actor, he was fearless with the roles he chose, and he always came off as likable on camera. If the reactions of the people who knew him personally are any indication, he was just as fearless and likable off screen.
In a year where we've already lost so many talented actors, musicians, and otherwise creative people, this one smarts in a different way, because he was only 27 years old, and he had so much ahead of him to look forward to, on and off camera.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.
