Anton Yelchin is a Russian born actor who started acting in film and television in the year 2000. He starred in Along Came A Spider, Hearts in Atlantis, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, The Smurfs, Fright Night, Pirates! Band of Misfits, and the upcoming Star Trek and Smurfs 2. On Television, he starred in ER, Taken, Curb Your Enthusiasm, NYPD Blue, Huff, and Criminal Minds.
As mentioned earlier, Anton Yelchin played the role of Zack Mazursky in the crime thriller, Alpha Dog, (filming locations discussed here) which was based on the true story of Nicholas Markowitz and Jesse James Hollywood who grew up in the quiet suburb of West Hills which I briefly discussed in the post; Dont Raise Your Kids in the West Valley: A Retrospective Review of Young Adult Crime in the West Valley. Anton Yelchin played such a memorable character in the film Alpha Dog that Markowitz's mother "was moved by Anton Yelchin's portrayal of her son." (Wikipedia)
Although Anton Yelchin was not born in the SFV, he is somewhat of a local as he attended the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies in Tarzana.

Prior to this home, the tribute.ca website claims that Anton Yelchin lived in Burbank. And prior to his Burbank home, property records show a Tarzana property purchased by Anton and his father on June 19, 2003 for $670,000 bordering the Braemar Country Club. This 4 Bed/4 Bath home is most likely where Anton Yelchin was living while attending the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies.
