It’s been 7 years since his untimely death and it’s still a sore subject amongst his fans.
Born in California in 1973, the star made his big-screen debut in the 1986 horror spoof Monster in Your Closet.
Including Charles in Charge, Who’s the Boss? and The Young and the Restless.
His role in the 1999 flick Varsity Blues earnt him significant attention and turned the heads of critics.
In 2001, Paul landed the role we all know and love him for… starring as Brian O’Conner in The Fast and the Furious.
And he subsequently became the face associated with the smash-hit franchise.
The Fast and Furious was a huge success.
The movie grossed an impressive $207.3 million at the box office and ultimately kickstarted the hugely popular franchise.
2 years later, the franchise returned to screens with its first sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious.
The movie was even more successful than the first, raking in a whopping $236.3 million in revenue at the box office.
The actor well and truly kept himself busy.
He starred in other action movies, including Takers, Hours, and Vehicle 19.
Paul tragically passed away on 30th November 2013, aged only forty.
He was reportedly in the passenger seat of a Porsche when his friend, who was driving, lost control, causing the vehicle to crash into a tree.
And both Paul and his friend were pronounced dead at the scene.
The world mourned the loss of one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
In his untimely death, Paul left behind his daughter, Meadow, who was only fifteen-years-old at the time.
But he is evidently in her thoughts regularly, as she frequently shares heartwarming photos of the pair together before his death.
But Meadow is evidently eager to continue working for things Paul was passionate about, such as ocean-clean-up methods and animal rescue.
“Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions. His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill. I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world. I want to share that part of him with others.”
And this week, amid the global lockdown, she has paid another tribute to her dad by sharing some never-before-seen footage of the actor.
“I never thought I’d share this. But it felt right. Be good. I love you. Stay safe.”
After creeping behind a door and suddenly jumping out on her dad, Meadow can be heard saying “hi” to her surprised dad, who falls on the bed in fits of laughter as she shouts “Happy Birthday!”
As Paul, still laughing, says: “You scared the hell out of me!”
And he embraces her tightly, rolling around on the bed with her in fits of laughter.
And has been the perfect spirit lifter amid the ongoing medical pandemic.
