VERY sad news this morning that Paul Walker, star of the Fast & Furious franchise has been killed in a tragic car accident.

Walker’s acting was never going to win any awards but he was an integral part of the Fast & Furious franchise from the very beginning and it only worked so well because of his and Vin Diesel’s chemistry and partnership on screen. His performances added to the fun and the excitement of the films and he will surely be missed.

In reality, Brian O’Conner is probably one of the most evolved characters in the action series and his transformation from police detective to co-leader of one of the biggest criminal gangs in the world has been enjoyable to watch.

Everyone who has ever come into contact with Walker seems to be coming out this morning and saying what a nice guy he was and this is completely believable as you never heard about him doing anything wrong and he was always smiling, laughing and joking around in interviews.

It is such a shame that Walker is no longer with us and he will be truly missed by fans of the Fast & Furious franchise. Far too young and way too soon; he had so much more to give.

RIP.
