Star Trek star Anton Yelchin has died aged 27.

His publicist confirmed the Russian-born actor was found dead at his Los Angeles home.

His body was found near 1:00am between his car and the mail box. The vehicle’s engine was still running.

Yelchin, an only child, started his career in small films before moving onto bigger roles in Alpha Dog and Charlie Bartlett.

His most popular films were the Star Trek reboots, the third of which, Star Trek Beyond, is due for a July release.

Yelchin’s family requests privacy at this time.
