His Star Trek character's full name was Pavel Andreievich Chekov, which leads to some interesting coincidences regarding the character's namesake and both actors who have played him. Pavel Chekov was the name of playwright Anton Chekov's father, and the Star Trek character was later played by Anton Yelchin
