Anton Yelchin is on the brink of stardom and featured in the pages of VMAN magazine’s actor portfolio for its summer 2009 issue, on stands May 14.
The 20-year-old actor is set to be featured in what’s sure to be two of the summer’s biggest blockbusters. In Star Trek, he plays young Russian space cadet Pavel Chekov. In Terminator Salvation, he steps into the role of Kyle Reese, a character who is both the father and protégé of future-savior-of-humanity John Connor (Christian Bale).
“I hope these movies do well,” he frets. “They cost a s***-ton of money.”
Anton observes, “The opportunity to be an actor is the opportunity to experience so many things. You’re selling yourself short if you don’t don’t try as many characters as possible.”
FYI: Anton’s parents were both star figure skaters in their native country and fled the Soviet Union when he was 6-months-old.
