Anton was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia in 1989 and was Viktor and Irina's only child. He was just six months old when his parents, former professional pairs figure skaters who qualified for the 1972 Olympics, moved the family to America as refugees.
Earlier this month, director Drake Doremus, who worked with Anton in the acclaimed 2011 romantic drama Like Crazy, opened up with ET about the talented actor's life and legacy.
"Anton was so special and so unique, and so funny," Doremus shared. "There's just nobody like him, and to lose him so soon is a huge tragedy for industry and for filmmaking." Check out the video below for more from the celebrated director.
