Statue of Anton Yelchin Dedicated in Garden of Legends

Anton Yelchin’s memory was honored with a bronze statue during a Life Celebration held last weekend in L.A.’s Hollywood Forever Cemetery’s Garden of Legends. Yelchin was only 27 when he died in June 2016, but he had already established himself as a talented actor and an important part of the rebooted Star Trek franchise.

Yelchin’s parents spoke at the service, as did his Star Trek co-star Zoe Saldana. In attendance were also Simon Pegg, Jennifer Lawrence, Jon Voight, and J.J. Abrams.

The statue was created by the legendary FX artists Nick Marra and Greg Nicotero, and is now available for public viewing.
