Born In: Glendale, California, United States
Paul Walker was an American actor famous for his starring role in ‘The Fast and the Furious’ franchise. He had also appeared in other popular movies such as ‘Varsity Blues’, ‘Eight Below’, ‘Timeline’, ‘Into the Blue’, ‘Joy Ride’ and ‘Running Scared’. Born as the son of a fashion model, he inherited his mother’s good looks, confidence and poise. Exposed to the world of show business as a toddler, it is not surprising that he developed an early interest in acting. He was just two when he began modeling and after a few years started appearing in television series in guest roles. He ventured into filmdom as a teenager when he bagged a role in the horror/comedy ‘Monster in the Closet’ and there was no looking back. He effectively left behind his television days and soon gained a reputation as a popular teen star. His roles in the coming-of-age films like ‘She's All That’ and ‘Varsity Blues’ made him a well-known face and he was able to easily make the transition to more mature roles. He received the opportunity of a lifetime when he was chosen to play Brian O'Conner in the street racing action film ‘The Fast and the Furious’ which established him as a highly successful Hollywood star. The life of this talented actor was tragically cut short in a fatal car accident in 2013.
