It was very sad to hear about the sad demise of actor Paul Walker in an unfortunate car crash yesterday. His family, film fans and Hollywood personalities were completely shocked to hear this news all of a sudden. He was the guy whose name became synonymous with the extremely successful movie franchise, Fast and Furious. He first became famous when he acted in the movie, Varsity Blues and then gained worldwide popularity when he appeared in the first installment of Fast and Furious in 2001. Son of Cheryl, a fashion model and Paul Williams Walker III, a sewer constructor, Walker Jr. started his acting career when he was a child. He began his small screen career with an ad when he acted in a commercial as a toddler.
Soon after, he made the transition from ads to movies with ‘Monster in the Closet’ in 1986. Paul also majored in Marine Biology and it remained one of his life-long passions. He even starred in the National Geographic Series, ‘Expedition Great White’. The news of his death has saddened everybody who knew him and they all expressed grief and remembered him as a generous and compassionate human being, actively involved in charity causes despite his busy schedule. In March 2010, he also visited Constitucion, Chile to help and support those victims who were affected by the severe earthquake. For all his human qualities, he became extremely popular among his friends and film professionals and was remembered as a genuine human being and a good person.
Such is the irony that yesterday Paul and his friend were driving to Walker, Charity Reachout Worldwide for victims of Typhoon Haiyan that the tragedy struck them and they met with the unfortunate car crash which resulted in the actor’s death. Immediately the news went viral and spread across the globe like wild fire, shocking everyone who have loved the Fast and Furious series along with the all the other movies that Paul starred in. His friends Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and SungKag expressed their grief on social media and remembered him fondly as a genuine, down-to-earth human. We too remember Paul Walker through his movies and humanity which stand on the behalf of his decent and successful body of work and secured him the place in the hearts of film-lovers.
