Paul Walker was killed in a single car crash on Saturday November 30th, 2013. The accident occurred in Valencia, California. Paul was 40 years old.
“It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences,” a post on his official Facebook page said.
“Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the Fast and Furious films, and to countless fans. We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul’s family,” a rep for Universal said in a statement.
Walker’s next film, Brick Mansions, is currently in post-production. At the time of his death, he was filming the seventh installment to Fast & Furious. Personally, I have always remembered his performance on the TV series Highway to Heaven. He portrayed a young man with Down Syndrome who was competing in the special olympics. Even way back then, as a young actor, he knew how to invoke the very best of the characters he played.
Mania’s thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Paul Walker.
