Anton Yelchin is Dazed and Confused

Anton Yelchin is Dazed and Confused

Termination Salvation (and Star Trek) star Anton Yelchin is a 20-year-old actor with “probing intellect of a man four times his age,” according to UK’s Dazed & Confused magazine.

“I was totally, immediately in love with acting,” he says. “There’s such potential for catharsis, for analyzing the human condition; for exploring yourself. I mean, I can’t work on myself for s—, but sometimes through the characters I find something deep inside myself that ends up really affecting me. It’s hard to be self-analytical, but with acting, you do find that you’re suddenly learning something about yourself.”

Anton philosophies, “There’s no emotional rest with acting. You’re always kind of in it. Which is how it should be, actually. I wouldn’t want it any other way.”

    How much catharsis, and analyzing of the human condition, went on in his portrayal of Chekov? lol. The entire role consisted of the computer not understanding his accent.

    It’s always nice to see a kid actor grow up well. I first noticed him in the “Taken” miniseries on the SciFi Channel.

    yeah i have to say i’ve seen the kid act, and i’m kinda in the middle with him. i think he has potential, but definately needs the right roles…even he knows this and has said that many times. he’s just taking roles now to get in the game (make money) and raise his profile…but really anton, don’t sell your soul. stay away from the big budget stuff, and the action movies.

    He was amazing in T4. He really brought Kyle to life — which was no easy task because the script was CRAP. Too much CGI, too little plot. Anton and Sam Worthington gave excellent performances and made the movie worth watching.

    I wasn’t really a fan on Chekov in Star Trek. I think Anton shined more in T4.

    He’s my age! :) I remember watching him in movies like “Delivering Milo” and “Hearts in Atlantis.” It’s great to see him transitioning to adult roles without doing teen movies.
