    Extremely heartbreaking news, one of my favourite actors. I can’t believe it another great gone. So sorry for his family.

    Terribly sad news. I myself did not like the Fast & Furious franchise, but I did like Walker. His death is sadly ironic. RIP

    This celebrity death hits me for some reason. Maybe because it’s not your usual suicide or overdose, it’s really a tragedy he lost his life in this way at such an early age. From his movies he seems like a ‘real’ and standup guy. Really sad.

    I can’t picture seeing a F&F movie without him in it.

    RIP Paul Walker and Condolences to his family especially his daughter.

    Definition of Ironic.

    BTW….. “regular” folk die in car crashes all the time. Just because this guy is famous doesn’t make it any more tragic than anyone else.

    Paul Walker is awesome and entertaining for all of the fast and the furious. Rest In Peace. Best wishes to his family.

    RIP Paul….sad that two lives were lost in this accident. Wondering if they are going to continue filming thenext F&F movie after what happened.

    He wasn’t a great actor by any stretch of the imagination but he still had a good career in action flicks. 40 is way too young to die, they were going too fast but he wasn’t driving so it is truly unfair to die this way.

    Thank you “Definition of Ironic”. I’m sorry for his family’s loss but he was just an actor. People die everyday and it is always tragic. Him being an actor doesn’t make it more sad.
