Shocked. ):

What a sad day.

Today I woke up at 9.50 here in Austria and decided to check the news. And I had to learn about the untimely death of one of my favorite actors, Paul Walker.

:'( :'( :'( :'(

Paul Walker was definitely one of my favorite actors and my favorite of the Fast & Furious cast, as I personally don't idolize the huge brooding guys like Vin Diesel and Hobbs. Plus, I think he was a bit like big me, with the same blonde hair and blue eyes, but he was 6'3" while I am only 5'7". But that's not the main thing.

I don't know if I'm going to watch the future Fast & Furious movies after 7th one, as they won't have Paul Walker (and also Brian, as he was my favorite character). But I hope Brian would get a good send-off in 7th movie, I'd rather think of him and Mia finally retiring from the heists and starting their own family life with Jack (and possible future children) and not getting involved in the team's future jobs.

My heart goes out to Paul Walker's 15-year old daughter Meadow, and to his other family and friends, and to all the mourning fans and co-stars. I feel like I lost a brother today.

It's quite shocking that his death seemed a bit similar to James Dean's 58 years ago (9/30/1955). One similarity that both were in a Porsche, both were at the height of their careers and both died on the 30th day of the month (September for JD, November for PW). While Paul Walker was 16 years older than James at the time of the crash, I think he still looked young enough and striking. But the crash sites were around 150 miles away from each other.

For some reason I have loved Porsches, but I don't know if I'll ever want to drive one after what just happened to Paul. -.-

Someone please make a dedication fic to Paul Walker!

RIP Paul William Walker IV
