Paul Walker Quotes

This blog post, titled “Paul Walker Quotes”, is honoring Paul Walker by highlighting some of his most heartening and memorable sayings. 

Paul Walker, was an American actor known for his role as the infamous ultimate car enthusiast.

The first movie we saw Paul Walker in was the 1986 horror comedy, Monster in the Closet.

Walker played Professor Bennett, a minor role, at the young age of 13. However, Paul started his acting career with television.

Prior to his first movie, you might have seen him in “The Young and the Restless”, “Who’s the Boss?”, and “Highway to Heaven”.

There are at least 30 Paul Walker movies out there. His first starring role was in Meet the Deedles in 1998.

But his big break wasn’t until 2001, when Paul Walker got a role as an ex police officer, Brian O’Conner in The Fast and the Furious.

Did you know that the song “See You Again” by rapper Wiz Khalifa and singer Charlie Puth featured in Furious 7, is a Paul Walker tribute?

The song became one of the biggest hits for both of the artists.

The tribute to Paul Walker was also so popular worldwide that the music video beat out Psy’s K-Pop hit, “Gangnam Style”, with 2.9 billion views on YouTube in the first week of its release.   

At the MTV People’s Choice Awards, Vin Diesel, friend to Walker and Furious co-star, sung a few lines from the Paul Walker tribute song in honor of the late actor.

The two met when they filmed the first Furious movie in 2001 and became very close friends.

There’s no doubt that you know at least some details about the devastating car crash that led to Paul Walker’s death and took the life of his friend, Roger Rodas as well. 

At the time of his death, Paul Walker’s net worth was $25 million. He left his estate to his daughter, Meadow Rain Walker.

In August 2018, Paramount Network is set to release I Am Paul Walker, a feature-length documentary about the life and career of the late Fast and Furious actor. 

When Walker was killed in 2013, we not only lost a great actor, but a family lost a loved one and we also lost a truly passionate car guy.
