    I still can't believe what happened to the poor guy :( so unlucky. I feel depressed when I watch the movies again and for a moment, I forget this young man won't be able to pursue his dreams and an acting career anymore. I feel for his parents and friends, there is never enough time someone can accept something like that.

    What a nice gesture. As is often the case with statues it doesn't really look like Anton at all, but I like that he gets that recognition. I'm still not over how sudden he left us. Poor guy had a very promising career before him. He was great in everything I saw him in. :(

    I'd love to see this in person. It doesn't realy look like him but not many statues look like who they're meant to portray. Such a great actor. He continues to be missed :(

    It's a crying shame they waited till someone was killed to even do a workaround for that damn shifter problem.

    And I do mean "workaround". They didn't actually address what was causing the issue.

    Nice to see him remembered this way though.

    Around the time of his death, wasn't there news of a past recall for his car? Either way, they did fix that problem too late. It's a real bummer he's gone

    You're about a month late for an "I don't get it."

    It's a Firefly reference. Look it up for yourself.

    Anton was only a month older than I when he passed away. Whenever I remember that, I make a conscious decision to live the best life I can, for him if for no one else.

    Sorry, but given the cause of his death, I can't see it as "passing away."

    Zoe Saldana named her youngest son after him (Zen Anton Hilario ) and it's sweet but it also makes me sad because I really think all these people were friends and a great group, and they genuinely miss him and they must feel so much anger about what happened and his young life getting interrupted like that, and when he had still so many things to do, so many projects he shared with them, so much entusiasm.
    It was really hard for them to promote Beyond.
