Yelchin was born March 11, 1989, in Leningrad, Russia (modern day Saint Petersburg, then part of the Soviet Union). His family is Jewish. His parents, Irina (née Korina) and Viktor Yelchin, were pair figure skaters who were celebrities as stars of the Leningrad Ice Ballet for 15 years.
Nationally, Yelchin's parents were the third-ranked pair team; they thus qualified for the 1972 Winter Olympics, but were not permitted to participate by the Soviet authorities (Yelchin has said the reason was unclear: "I don't exactly know what that was – because they were Jewish or because the KGB didn't want them to travel"). His family moved to the United States in September 1989, when Anton was six months old, after receiving political refugee status from the United States Department of State. Yelchin's mother worked as a figure skating choreographer and his father as a figure skating coach, having been Sasha Cohen's first trainer. Yelchin's uncle is the children's author and painter Eugene Yelchin.
Yelchin has stated that he "wasn't very good" at figure skating, his parents' profession. He once played in a punk band named The Hammerheads, though the group has since disbanded. He enjoys playing the guitar, having said that it gives him "a lot of fulfillment", and is a fan of acoustic blues music. He attended the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies, in Tarzana, California, and enrolled at the University of Southern California in the fall (September/October) of 2007 to study film. As of 2009, he lives in Burbank, California.
