The world was in total and utter shock when the popular Fast & Furious actor, Paul Walker, died in November 2013. As we know, the 40-year-old and father-of-one died in the passenger seat of a car that crashed at high speed in California, killing both himself and the driver, Roger Rodas.
The actor, who starred in all of the movies in the fast-paced action franchise up until his death, was mourned by fans all over the world, along with his fellow co-stars in Hollywood.
Up until his shocking death, Paul had been filming the seventh installment of the franchise and had not quite finished his parts for the movie. His brothers, Caleb and Cody stepped in and helped film the remaining scenes.
Devoted fans of the actor were devastated to learn the news from the actor’s official page:
“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 organisation Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We… are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news.”
Paul’s only child, Meadow was only 15 years old when her father passed away and has since then remained predominantly outside of the public eye. In fact, Meadow, who is now 18, took a break away from Instagram in 2016 and only returned to the photo-sharing app in July of this year sharing this picture of herself:
Meadow’s post was flooded with heartwarming messages of love and support. One commenter wrote: “Your dad would be so proud of you,” Another told the girl: “U are so beautiful. U have ur dad’s eyes and smile.”
Anyone who is vaguely aware of the actor’s personal life will know that he absolutely adored his little girl, often referring to her as his best friend. He would always mention her in interviews and even tattooed her name on his wrist.
His daughter, who turned 18 last summer, has blown people away with her stunning Instagram photos. They have showcased just how much she has transformed from a kid into a beautiful young woman.
Despite having currently only seven posts on her Instagram page, Meadow has a whopping 1.4 million followers!
Evidently, there are many people who are very keen to keep up with her progress and see how well she has coped without her beloved father. And although she understandably misses him a great deal, she seems to have dealt with her loss in a very mature manner.
In fact, the 18-year-old, like her dad, is very concerned about the environment and the preservation of the oceans and wildlife.
In 2015, she set up the Paul Walker Foundation on what would have been her father’s 42nd birthday. The foundation takes action to protect the environment and even provides scholarships and grants for those interested in studying marine science.
Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow has very clearly grown into a stunning and caring young woman.
Not only is she beautiful on the outside, but she has shown much concern for the environment in which she lives, in much the same way that her father did. I really hope she continues on this path, and I look forward to hearing from her as she progresses further into adulthood.
