FIERCE PEOPLE

Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, ANTON YELCHIN moved to the United States as an infant with his parents, Russian national figure skating pairs champions. In order to overcome his shyness, he went to acting class at eight years old and quickly discovered that he loved it. His mother read about a commercial audition and immediately thereafter, a star was born in a Chuck E. Cheese commercial.

Yelchin began to act professionally one year later in 1999 at the mere age of nine. He made his film debut in the independent film "A Man Is Mostly Water,” and has worked continuously since that time in films such as "Hearts in Atlantis” with Anthony Hopkins (which earned him a 2001 Young Artists Award for best performer), "Delivering Milo” opposite Albert Finney, "Fifteen Minutes” with Robert DeNiro and Ed Burns, "A Time for Dancing” with Peter Coyote and "Along Came a Spider” with Morgan Freeman, and "House of D” with Robin Williams, Tea Leoni and David Duchovny. He will also star in the Nick Cassavetes-directed drama "Alpha Dog,” a drama based on the life of drug dealer, Jesse James Hollywood.

On the small screen, Yelchin has continued to show an impressive range and is a series regular on Showtime's "Huff” starring Hank Azaria. He also co-starred in the USA Network mini-series "Taken,” and the Disney movie-of-the week "Gepetto” opposite Drew Carey. His guest appearances include "E.R,” "Judging Amy,” "Curb Your Enthusiasm,” "Without a Trace,” "NYPD Blue,” and "The Practice.”

Despite a hectic and thriving career at only 15 years old, Yelchin keeps his feet firmly planted on the ground. He loves to play guitar, read, write and take photos and in his spare time, he loves to read.
