Paul Walker, the main actor for the Fast & Furious series, died in a fatal car accident on November 30, 2013. Witnesses reported he was attending a charity event prior to the crash.
Minutes before getting into his car, he was smiling and laughing. He jumped in his 2005 Porche Carerra GT with his racing team partner, who was driving the car. They hit a light pole and the car burst into flames. Officials didn’t report how fast the car was moving but over the speed limit of 45 MPH.
Paul Walker was well known in Hollywood. Not only was he an actor, but also a kind-hearted man. Paul Walker SR., his father, said, “His heart was so big. I was proud of him every single day of his life.”
Walker is known for his generosity. In one case, he helped a soldier and his fiancée purchase a ring. The soldier was home from his tour in Iraq. He wanted to get his fiancée a ring. They knew they could not afford a ten thousand dollar ring. Apparently, Walker was in the store with them. He called the manager over and said to put that ring on the girl’s finger and to put the amount on his tab. The Wales woman Irene King said, “It is the most generous act that she has seen.”
Walker played in the entire Fast & Furious Series, She’s All That, Vehicle 19, and Hours. His focus was on car racing movies. Production for the seventh installment of “Fast & Furious” was in mid-production. The release date is set for July, 2014. The cast was on break with more shooting to be done.
