Gone but never forgotten. Zoe Saldana shared a rare Instagram video of her twin sons, Bowie and Cy, as a tribute to her late Star Trek costar Anton Yelchin, who died in a freak accident back in June.

In the adorable throwback Dubsmash clip, the 38-year-old actress and her husband, Italian artist Marco Perego, carry their adorable boys, now nearly 21 months, in a baby carrier while lip-synching to the Beastie Boys’ 1992 hit “So What’cha Want.”

“I’m only posting this dubsmash because [Star Trek Beyond costar] Simon Pegg insisted,” Saldana captioned the video Tuesday, August 23. “He reminded me how much the crew laughed when I sent this video. It was over a weekend while we were shooting Star Trek in Vancouver last summer. Every time I see all the videos we all did it makes me think of Anton. We hope you can get a laugh out of this.”

As Us Weekly previously reported, Yelchin died June 19 after being pinned between his brick mailbox post and a security fence after his Jeep rolled backward down the driveway of his L.A. home. The 27-year-old died of blunt traumatic asphyxia within a minute of the accident, the coroner’s office said at the time.

A day after the actor’s death, Saldana took to Twitter to pay tribute to her late costar, writing, “Devastated by our friend’s loss. We are mourning his passing and celebrating the beautiful spirit that he was.”

The Crossroads star’s rep told Us Weekly at the time that Saldana had just landed in Cuba when she was informed about the tragic news. “She is beyond devastated, and first and foremost her heart and prayers are with the Yelchin family during this time,” the actress’ rep said on June 19.

Saldana later posted an extended statement via Instagram, writing, “Your sudden and unexpected departure has left us all broken hearted. I woke up today feeling absolute gratitude that I had you as a friend and colleague. Your life has been cut short, but I will always tell everyone about you. You were kind, present, old souled, curious, brilliant, funny, humble, honest, and undeniably [talented]. Good bye Anton, it was an honor to have crossed paths with you.”
