paul walkerIt’s with a sad heart that we have to report that actor, Paul Walker, has passed away earlier today at the age of 40. Walker was in a car accident with another passenger, who also died.

From the Paul Walker twitter page:

[box_light]…We must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences. –‪#‎TeamPW‬[/box_light]

The actor was currently filming the latest Fast & Furious film, so we shall see where this leads the franchise. Walker had recently  confirmed he was signed on for an eighth film. I thought he did a great job in those films, and one of my favorite action movies is Running Scared. This is a sad day indeed.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Walker family, including his 15year old daughter Meadow; and his extended family, the Fast & Furious cast members.
