He was a devoted marine-biologist and had a passion for cars and car racing(Not only was he Brian O'connor the undercover street racing badass, no, but also Paul Walker the Marine Biologist Car loving car racing badass)
Usually like someone else said, it usually when a Celebrity passes, it doesnt affect me, I dont know the person, Nor have they made any sort of impact on my life. But Paul is a different story, i remember when Fast and furious came out, when i was a young kid, around 6 then 2 fast 2 furious when i was about 8. I'd always remember the scenes from both films where Brian(Paul) drives out of the garage lot with a couple hundred other street racers towards the police who had them 'trapped'(obviously not) and the opening scenes where the bridge comes up and he jumps not only over the bridge, but over his opponent, and of course, the boat jump.
These scenes stuck with me my whole childhood, Id always pretend i was a street racer who was undercover(with friends, or else that would be weird)
Im not gonna sit here and say "he was my favourite actor ever" like some people are doing for attention, no he was more of, a hero or Idol to me, not Paul Walker himself, but the character he portrayed, but its still hit me like a sack of shit to my face because of a few reasons, how unexpected, tragic and gruesome he went, also the fact he was on his way to his own charity event to raise money, and the fact that his only daughter who had lived with her mother her whole life, moved in with him recently this year, because she wanted to actually get to know her father, he literally said in a quite(althought surreal) recent interview that they were getting on and everything is going really well.
I feel for his family, his daughter....Michelle Rodriguez & Tyrese Gibson, his other friends... Also, the guy who was driving, a very close friend of Paul's left behind a wife and a 8 year old son, which is tragic.
May god bless their souls, Ride in paradise boys, live fast, die young.
Also my new favourite quote "If one day, speed kills me. Do not cry because I was smiling"
Also, it would be nice if we could make a donation to Reach Out WorldWide, I am towards the end of the week.
What drax said, that actually made me shed a tear when I heard of the news, I myself, dont know about you guys, Instantly thought it was a hoax, because literally a day before he died there was a hoax going around of his death, his PR's came out saturday morning and released a statement saying he is 'alive and well'
But yeah, Ive knew what paul was all about before he died, his charity, his generosity, his dire need to help others, his determination and dedication to others and that he always put others before himself and treated everyone with respect, whether he knew them or not they were treated equally by him.
When a humble, down to earth and such a kind, heartwarming, caring and lovable guy, who doesnt crave attention from the masses, was rarely ever in the spotlight (bar the releasing of FF moviesj could ve taken away so gruesomely and so suddenly like that, its absolutely heartbreaking.
That has clicked something in me these past few days, from now on Im going to strive to be the best i can be, in all aspects of my life, to always push for something better, to make sure my actions benefit people in lesser circumstances than me, god im babbling, but we could all go at any given moment, given freak accident or natural causes, I dont want to leave this world before I have too, but if I do, I want to leave an impact on people, I want to be the guy that was alwayd there for a person with a helping hand, god im pretty emotional lately, still coming to terms that he's passed, god knows how his family anf friends are feeling, i cant even begin to Imagine it.
God puts people like Paul on this earth, so he can take them back before he needs to, because he is trying to teach us to repect and live peacefully, to be the best we can be, Paul always pushed to be the best he can be, we should too.
Godbless your souls Paul Walker and Roger Rodas forever remembered, never forgotten and always loved.
Sorry for rabbiting on, its just really gotten to me, and I need to vent it out somewhere or other.
Your telling me you have never seen any of the Fast&Furious films? If not watch the first one or the sixth one. Also watch pawn shop chronicles, takers or the lazarus project, hes superb in all of these films.
Yeah, Vin is in it, so is paul, Tyrese gibson, Michelle rodriguez, Ludacris, Jordanna Brewster, Jason Statham is in number 7(upcoming one) and the rock.
If you want to get a feel for his work I'd suggest, The Lazarus Project, Takers, Pawn Shop Chronicles, Into The Blue & timeline.
He has quite a few upcoming films also.
He gave over 2.5 million dollars to charity too.
Just heard the Autopsy results aswell, wow, I was hoping he would of died on impact, but he died from a combination of thermal and trauma injuries and roger died on impact....rip
