Parents of Anton Yelchin Take Out Ad to Say ‘Thank You’ to Fans

Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin was tragically killed in an auto mishap at his home last month.

Since then, tributes, prayers, and words of comfort from fans and fellow actors have poured in.

Now, Anton Yelchin’s parents, Irina and Viktor, have taken an extraordinary step — buying a full-page ad in The Hollywood Reporter — to say thank you.

The ad features a black-and-white photo of Yelchin above these words:

Thank you to all of you who have sent flowers and gifts, for your condolences and kind words and to all who came to celebrate the life of our dear son, Anton. We are deeply grateful for your unconditional love… He would be surprised at how many hearts and souls he touched. Thank you very much.

Yelchin had completed work on Star Trek Beyond (along with other projects) shortly before his death. The movie is in theaters on July 22. He reprises his role as Pavel Chekov, whom he played in two prior films.
