Zach is currently in Sidney for the premiere of Star Trek Beyond, and alongside Chris Pine, visited the studios of “The Project” for a joint interview. Watch it below:
Stephen offered his condolences for this latest death in the family, just a year after the death of original Spock Leonard Nimoy.
“Beautiful, beautiful guy,” Zachary said of Anton. “I don’t even know how to talk about it. We already knew that this would be a really bittersweet experience because of the loss of Leonard last year, but this has just been absolutely devastating for all of us.”
Stephen noted that they had been working together since 2007 when they shot the first “Star Trek” movie.
“I think our goal has to be to just celebrate his incredible life and honor him as much as we can,” Zachary continued. “It’s a terrible loss, not just to us personally but to the industry and audiences. He was such a talent.” Zachary said the cast really is close, and maybe they had taken each other for granted.

Netflix has released the poster for Tallulah, that will start streaming next July 29.
Our gallery was updated with scans from most recent issues of SFX, Sci-Fi Now and Empire magazines, all featuring Star Trek Beyond.
Ellen Page plays an accidental baby snatcher in the first trailer for Netflix’s pricey Sundance acquisition “Tallulah.” The Oscar-nominated actress plays Lu, a vagabond who lives in a van before she rescues a baby from a negligent mother (Tammy Blanchard) who is in over her head. Lu then turns to Margo (Allison Janey), who believes she is the child’s grandmother.
The indie drama, written and directed by Sian Heder (“Orange Is the New Black”), also stars Zachary Quinto, John Benjamin Hickey and Uzo Aduba.
In January, Netflix acquired the film at Sundance Film Festival for a reported $5 million. An unnamed theatrical partner will release the film in the latter part of 2016. The film will debut on the steaming service on July 29.
Tallulah, the Netflix original film, was written and directed by Sian Heder (Orange is the New Black), and tells the story of young vagabond, Lu (Ellen Page – Whip It, Inception), who lives in a van and is fiercely independent in her hand-to-mouth existence. When a chance encounter incites her to impulsively “”rescue”” a baby from a negligent mother, Lu, at a loss for what to do, turns to the only responsible adult she knows: Margo (Allison Janney – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Way, Way Back), who mistakenly believes she’s the child’s grandmother. Tammy Blanchard (Into the Woods, Moneyball), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Girls), John Benjamin Hickey (The Good Wife, Manhattan) and Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black, The Wiz Live!), also round out the cast.
“Star Trek Beyond” actor Anton Yelchin died early Sunday morning at age 27 in a “fatal traffic collision,” according to his publicist, Jennifer Allen. It’s completely heartbreaking and we have no words to express how sad is this event.
Zachary has posted a message on his Instagram, which you can check below:
