While Paul Walker’s life ended too soon after a tragic car accident at only 40 years old, the bright actor has left behind a legacy that will live on through not only his family—including his 15-year-old daughter Meadow—but also his career on the big screen.
The late star may best be known for his role in The Fast and The Furious franchise, Paul’s career spanned almost three decades, and covered almost every genre of cinema.
