Today would have been the 47th birthday of Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker, if not for the tragic car crash that took his life in 2013.
Walker’s now 21-year-old daughter, Meadow Walker took to social media today to commemorate her dad, and released a sweet photo of the father and daughter duo from her childhood.
The caption reads “The moment I realised we are twins. happy birthday to the most beautiful soul.”
Paul Walker is best known for his work in The Fast and the Furious film franchise. He also appeared in the films She’s All That, Varsity Blues, Joy Ride, Into the Blue, and Running Scared, among others.
Meadow spent most of her childhood living in Hawaii with her mother, Rebecca Soteros, but moved to California to spend more time with her dad a year before his death.
Meadow works as a model and has acquired quite a following on Instagram. The post received a lot of messages of support and half a million likes.
Paul Walker died in a horrific motor vehicle collision while riding in the passenger seat of a Porsche. The car burst into flames and died at the scene. He was 40.
Meadow fought a long legal battle with Porsche which was settled in 2017.
Meadow has been running the Paul Walker Foundation on Instagram and used her father’s birthday as a way to promote a Do Good campaign.
“In honour of my dad’s birthday, I’m kicking off our annual do good challenge,” she wrote.
“Tell your friends you love them and acknowledge them for standing by your side no matter what.”
