Tributes flood in for Fast & Furious star Paul Walker

10. The Young and the Restless

Walker cut his teeth working on the legendary TV show The Young and the Restless in the early nineties, joining the ranks of TV legends like David Hasselhoff and Eva Longoria who also starred on the show.

9. Academia
Not just a pretty face, Walker was also an avid student of Marine Biology, reading the subject at college and joining a National Geographic team to study sharks.

8. Comedy

It wasn’t all action films for the Californian boy as he could also cut it in a big-screen comedy, with She’s All That ranking as one of his best.

7. Dog lover

Paul lived in California with his pet dogs whom he adored. And who can forget his touching performance in Disney’s Eight Below where he played an Antarctic guide who battled the elements to save some Huskies?

6. Serious acting

Walker had great potential to go on to become a serious Oscar contender in later life. He landed a notable role in 2006 in the Clint Eastwood directed and Steven Spielberg produced Flags of Our Fathers. This showcased his ability to handle strong, serious roles as well as more light-hearted action ones.

5. Father

The actor leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter, Meadow, from a relationship with previous love Rebecca McBrain.

4. Endorsement

From 2011, the Hollywood hunk was the face of aftershave Davidoff Cool Water, appearing on commercials and on billboards to promote the classic fragrance.

3. Charity work

Walker was a firm believer in charity, often throwing fundraisers or attending disaster areas to aid relief. He had left a charity event for a foundation he set up to support victims of Typhoon Haiyan when his death occurred.

2. Good friend

The deluge of tributes on social media since the death of Paul – including Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Jessica Alba – just goes to prove how well loved and respected the actor was to those who knew him.

1. The Fast & The Furious

For most, Paul will be forever celebrated as Brian O’Connor from The Fast & The Furious film series, after starring in six of the seven installments.
