Tributes have been paid to the late Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin. The 27-year-old was killed after his Jeep rolled down his driveway and crushed him against a brick pillar at his San Fernando Valley home in California earlier this month. 
 
Yelchin, who played Pavel Chekov in the three recent film versions of the sci-fi favourite, has been honoured by his co-stars such as Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, John Cho and director JJ Abrams, as well as members of the original Star Trek TV series, including William Shatner. 
 
Meanwhile, Yelchin’s Alpha Dog co-star Justin Timberlake took to Twitter to pay his respects to the late actor, writing: “Anton Yelchin. Genius actor. Amazing human being. Gone way too soon. May he rest in peace,” while castmate Emile Hirsch tweeted: “I can’t believe Anton is gone. He was a great man, a true friend, and an artist. Love you buddy.” Yelchin’s death is under investigation by LA authorities and Fiat Chrysler, the maker of the actor’s Jeep, after reports indicated his and other 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees were part of a recall linked to other ‘roll away’ incidents.
