According to several sources (most notably: TMZ), Paul Walker has died in a violent LA car accident, an irony to end all ironies. Walker is best known for being a key part of the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise and ‘She’s All That’. Shock and horror are currently pulsing through the internet at both the tragic circumstances of his death, as well as Paul’s sadly young age (40 yrs). He leaves behind one child, a daughter, Meadow. More news as it comes.
*Paul’s rep has apparently confirmed his death, in said Santa Clarita accident, following a charity event. R.I.P.
Tragically, this is not a cruel death- hoax, as Paul Walker’s reps (via Facebook) and Variety, have now posted the sad news.
“Most recently, Walker was in production on the seventh installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise — an eerie reality given the nature of his death. The street racing franchise is Universal’s most valuable active pic franchise. Walker’s death will undoubtedly leave a significant void in the pic now in production and subsequent installments.”
This is just so horribly tragic. Our hearts and prayers to go Paul’s family and friends, as well as the cast and crew filming Fast and The Furious 7, also starring Jason Statham.
