His room-brightening smile, model good-looks, and, of course, those sparkling baby blue eyes; these are just a few things that come to mind when one thinks of Paul Walker.
Like most of us, Walker had a lot going on behind his public persona. Though his life was cut tragically short, there are many stories about Paul Walker that demonstrate just how fast and furiously he spent his brief 40 years on Earth.
Paul William Walker IV was born in Glendale, California, on September 12, 1973. He began acting and modeling at an age where most of us are still figuring out how to form complete sentences, and his filmography encompasses more than 30 movies, including the mega-hit Fast and the Furious franchise.
Unfortunately, like many celebrities who once burned brightly, Walker's flame was snuffed out by tragedy, and his absence has left a noticeable void in the entertainment industry. The brutal, single-car accident that took his life, as well as the life of friend and financial advisor Roger Rodas, did not diminish the collective love and respect shown towards the beloved actor.
