Los Angeles, Oct 9 (IANS) A bronze statue of Anton Yelchin was unveiled above his grave at Hollywood Forever cemetery, where the late actor was laid to rest after his tragic death over a year ago.
Yelchin’s statue was unveiled on Sunday, reports tmz.com.
According to sources, Yelchin’s family wanted their only son to have a ground monument, which is why he was moved from Mount Sinai Cemetery to Hollywood Forever shortly after he died. Mount Sinai does not allow ground monuments.
Yelchin, who would have turned 28 this year, died on June 19, 2016 after his car rolled back and pinned him against a brick mailbox pillar at his home. His parents have been in a legal battle with Fiat Chrysler ever since, claiming their product caused his death.
Some Hollywood celebrities, who came out to pay their respects to Yelchin, included Jennifer Lawrence, Zoe Saldana, Demi Moore and Simon Pegg.
