Dallas star and As The World Turns alum Jordana Brewster is devastated over the loss of her The Fast and the Furious co-star Paul Walker. The actress issued the following statement about the deceased movie star:
“Paul was an enormous presence in my life for the past 14 years. While many would be satisfied with material success it made Paul more convinced of the need to help others. He never spoke of his immense generosity or philanthropic endeavors unless I prodded, however. This is what made Paul, Paul.”
He lived with integrity, humanity and humility and seemed most happy when talking about his daughter, Meadow,” she continued. “I don’t know anyone who lived each moment more fully and loved life more than Paul; making his loss all the more heartbreaking.” READ MORE
The Young and the Restless patriarch Eric Braeden has fond memories of working with late movie star Paul Walker. One of The Fast and the Furious star's early acting roles found him playing Jabot Cosmetics employee Brandon Collins on the hit CBS Daytime soap.
