Like most of the movie-loving world, I’m a little shaken up – well, a lot shaken up – about Paul Walker’s tragic passing today. The guy was so young, just 40 years-old, but more than that, he had so much more to give as an actor, but also a person. He was quite the perfect package.
If you’re not up to speed on what happened, here’s a bit of an account (saves me from writing the heartbreaking stuff)
As I write this, people are gathered at the crash site where the actor was killed.
Here’s some photographs that have just emerged on Twitter :

And there’s some photos online of Walker just before the tragic crash that took his life, too :

While we wait for Vin Diesel to break his online silence (he’s no doubt very upset at the moment; he and Walker would’ve been understandably close), some of his “Fast & Furious” franchise co-stars, as well as Aussie director James Wan, who was working on “Fast & Furious 7” with Walker, have been online to say a few words.
All my strength, love & faith to the Walker family during this heartbreaking time. We find our strength.. in his light. Love you brother.
