Paul Walker: 1973 – 2013
There’s some sad news this holiday weekend as FAST & FURIOUS star Paul Walker has died in a car accident at the age of 40. He and a friend were driving in a charity event in Valencia, California when their car crashed and became engulfed in flames. Both Paul Walker and his friend were pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of the accident is still unknown. Paul Walker is of course best known for his roles in the FAST & FURIOUS films, having appeared in all six films to date. But Walker got his start in the films like PLEASANTVILLE, VARSITY BLUES, SHE’S ALL THAT and THE SKULLS. He has the films BRICK MANSIONS and of course, FAST & FURIOUS 7 coming in 2014.
Obviously, there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered concerning his death, but for now, we can look back on the underrated and successful acting career of Paul Walker. He may not have been the most talented actor of his age group, but he always gave a good performance and was great to watch in the FAST & FURIOUS films. He will be missed. (Deadline)
