How Anton Yelchin’s net worth was built

Anton Yelchin was a critically acclaimed actor who appeared in both films and on television. The actor’s first roles came in small, independent movies, but it wasn’t long before he began appearing in Hollywood blockbusters.

Yeltsin’s most well-know role was as Pavel Chekov in the recent reboot of the “Star Trek” film series. He played the part in two sequels of the series, “Star Trek Into Darkness” and “Star Trek Beyond.”

Away from Hollywood, the actor was active in fundraising for charities and helped Camp Sunshine with a Star Trek-themed contest in 2016.

As of May 2017, Celebrity Net Worth projected his estate was worth around $10 million.
