In Memory of Paul Walker

30 Nov

In memory of Paul Walker (aka the character Brian O’Connor), who passed away today in a car crash.  I don’t usually have any emotional response when one of the stars passes away (beyond pity of course), but Walker’s character in Fast and the Furious meant a lot to me and my friends.  My best friend and I spent hours bonding over the FATF films, watching the first 3 straight in a row (we were a little late getting caught up).  We would talk for days after each re-watch oohing and aahing over the fast cars and hot boys, and his loss hit us both kind of hard.  We didn’t know him personally, but his work was important to  us and meant a lot to our memories as friends.  He was an excellent actor, and according to all reports a stand-up guy in the middle of the mess that is Hollywood.  So to Paul Walker (and the memories of Brian O’Connor), may your trip to Heaven be like one giant drag race to the finish line!
