"It Still Doesn't Feel
Real": Cody Walker
Opens Up About His
Brother Paul's Death
-- And How He Plans to
Honor His Legacy
It’s been almost five months since Paul Walker was tragically killed in a car crash on Nov. 30, but it still hasn’t set in for his brother Cody.
The 25-year-old moved from Oregon to California to work on his brother’s non-profit, Reach Out World Wide, and has been promoting one of his sibling’s final flicks, Brick Mansions, a task proven to be difficult for him.
“Right now, a whole lot of time has not gone by yet,” Cody explains to the Associated Press. “It still doesn’t feel real, because, sometimes, working in this industry, making films, he’d be away from his family three, four, six months at a time, you know.
“And my only interactions would be a phone call. So, I know it’s going to take a while.”
Unfortunately, spending time away from home is something Cody will have to get used to, as he and brother Caleb, 36, plan to step in to complete Paul’s final scenes in Fast & Furious 7.
When asked for details about his involvement, Cody simply stated he couldn’t talk about it.
However, it would appear Paul’s brothers have had no trouble adapting to life on set.
The late 40-year-old actor's Fast co-star Vin Diesel took to Facebook to share a picture of him with Cody and Caleb and wrote, “After spending time with his biological brothers, I must say to the parents, you raised some good kids.”
Cody also dished about how Paul used to be envious of his brother’s private life.
“He would tell me how jealous of me he was because I still had my anonymity,” he says. “And he’s like, ‘I can’t just go to the movies. I can’t catch the films I want to see. You’ve still got that, man!’”
Of course, he’s more than willing to give that up to honor and continue his brother’s legacy as not only an actor, but also an incredible kindhearted and generous man.
“Anyone that’s ever met Paul," he halts—fighting back tears. "...if you ever met him out in public, if you didn’t recognize him, he’d never mention it. He was just so low-key and lived such a modest life.”
