Paul Walker dies

 

Last Saturday the tragic news came that Fast and the Furious actor Paul Walker (1973 - 2013) died in a car crash on his way home from a charity event. (Roger Rodas, age 38, who was with him and reportly driving was killed too). 
 

The first film I saw in which he starred was Varisty Blues. His big break came when he took the lead in the Fast and the Furious franchise, of which the 7th installment was currently being shot.


Besides his acting carreer Walker also used his his fame for the various chairty programes, like doing research to great white sharks. He formed his own humanitarian aid team, Reach Out WorldWide


Paul Walker had just turned 40 leaves behind a daughter. My thoughts go out to his family and friends in this difficult time.
