    Paul Walker Dead @ 40

    Seemed like a genuine nice guy. RIP Paul.



    The 40-year-old actor was a passenger in a Porsche that lost control and crashed in Santa Clarita, north of Los Angeles, killing both occupants.

    A post by the actor's team on Facebook says the actor had been attending a charity event to raise money for people affected by Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines last month.

    "We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news," the post said.

    "Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time."

    Universal Pictures, the studio behind the Fast and the Furious movies, has released a statement saying it is "heartbroken".

    "Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the Fast and Furious films, and to countless fans," it said.

    Celebrity news website TMZ, which first reported news of the death, says the car hit a post or tree and was quickly engulfed in flames.

    The identity of the driver of the car is not known.

    Walker's career began on the small screen, with roles in shows including The Young and the Restless and Touched by an Angel.

    He rose to fame after starring in the 1999 hit film Varsity Blues, but is best known for starring as undercover agent Brian O'Conner in a string of Fast and Furious movies.

    He appeared in all but one of the six movies in the series, and was one of the leading protagonists along with Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez.

    Filming was still ongoing for the latest film in the series, Fast & Furious 7, which was expected to hit cinemas late in 2014.

    Media site Gulf News last month reported Walker and other actors were due to film scenes of the movie in Abu Dhabi in January.

    His other film credits include Pleasantville, Into the Blue, She's All That and Takers.

    He is survived by his teenage daughter Meadow.

    I always thought he'd die of old age. Rest in peace.

    The Fast and the Furious was one of the most influential movies of my generation (whether you like it or not).

    Sad to hear this.

    I was extremely shocked and sad to hear this
    I wonder when a nuclear warhead goes off, does the frame rate of real life drop?

    They have been filming since September so its possible all his talking parts are done. In action movies they usually save the stunts for last just in case a accident happens.

    From what I heard, filming was going to end in January. So it seems they were right in the middle of it.

    Definitely a sticky situation. Curious to see what they do.

    Weren't they also filming 7 and 8 back to back? So his 7 stuff could be done.

    RIP Paul Walker. Enjoyed his roles in films. Ironic he has died in a car crash. He lived every "boys dream". Thoughts to his loved ones. Fast and furious will never be the same without Brian.

    May he rest in peace. Loved him in the Fast n Furious series. Feel really bad for his daughter. Just pray that God gives them the strength to heal. Condolences to his family, friends and fans.
