Somehow I had managed to miss this on the internet over the weekend. A friend mentioned on the phone that Chekov died and I naturally assumed it was the older Walter Koenig and was bummed. When she said it was the young Chekov, I was completely stunned and even more depressed. To die so young in such an unexpected and tragic way! Just too sad. I always enjoyed Anton's work and expected to see so many future performances from him. Such a shame.
