ANTON YELCHIN:      Trivia / Fun Facts    * Voice of Clumsy    * Famous Handprint    * Best Films    * Play Clumsy Game
Anton Yelchin is an attractive and capable actor. Born in the USSR (now called Russia), Anton emigrated to the United States with his parents when he was six months old. He has always wanted to be an actor and told his parents as much when he was only four years old.

Best known as Pavel Chekov in the "Star Trek" films and Kyle Reese in "Terminator Salvation", Anton is also an accomplished actor having appeared in movies with both Robin Williams and Anthony Hopkins.

Anton Yelchin plays Clumsy Smurf in the the Smurf movies. Emphasizing his own naturally youthful qualities, Anton's Clumsy Smurf is quiet and passive as opposed to previous boisterous interpretations. Make no mistake, however, Anton Yelchin's Clumsy is indeed very clumsy - and has a big heart, just like Anton!
SMURFY INTERVIEW WITH ANTON YELCHIN
Cute Clumsy Smurf Anton Yelchin is Clumsy Smurf
Anton Yelchin's performance as Clumsy is a little different than the Clumsy that diehard Smurf fans might remember from growing up. When interviewed about his role as Clumsy Smurf, this is what Anton Yelchin had to say...

"I was familiar with Clumsy from the TV series, where he had that Southern twang. I went back and watched that, and then Raja, Jordan and I talked about it. We decided to make Clumsy a little simpler, a little sweeter. His voice is pitched higher than my normal speaking voice - it's full of joy, optimism, and enthusiasm for life. Clumsy isn't trying to mess anything up for anybody - he's just clumsy, and actually, he's tired of being clumsy."
TRIVIA
Anton's parents were a pair of professional figure skaters (ranked third in their country).

Anton is an only child.

QUOTES
"Russia is very complicated. It is one of the most complicated histories. I could go on about this forever. It produces Dostoyevsky and Rachmaninoff and then it produces Stalins and Lenins. It is such a strange combination."

"I prefer when movies target my heart instead of my mind."
FUN FACTS
* At the age of 10, Anton made his TV debut in the medical drama "ER" on the episode called, "Be Still My Heart".

* Anton loves reading and playing chess.

* When Anton was just 20 years old, he was named one of People Magazine's Top 100 Beautiful People.

* Anton plays piano and guitar. He also writes music and used to perform with a band called, "The Hammerheads".
