Upon knowing of Anton Yelchin’s sudden demise, J. J. Abrams send a message,to the cast and crew of the Star Trek movies that read, “Anton was our little brother. But only by years; he was as wise and clever and intellectually curious as anyone we ever knew. His laugh was preposterous—you couldn’t hear it and not laugh yourself. He was funny, edgy, wild, and talented beyond measure. His focus and dedication was admirable, as was his love of family, friends, literature and music.”

The Star Trek director expressed that he missed his fellow colleague by saying, “We loved Anton, at work or at  play. We are all shocked and numb and devastated by the world’s loss of an extraordinary young man. To his family, we send our love during this impossible time. We will miss Anton forever. His Star Trek family.”
