Some very tragic news is being reported. According to TMZ, actor Paul Walker, best known for his lead roles in the ‘Fast & Furious’ has passed.

Sources indicate that Paul and another person in the car were killed. Apparently, he was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort, and had been taking friends out for rides in his new Porsche GT. The accident happened during one of those test spins. Last week, we shared photos of Paul and the ‘Fast & Furious’ crew shooting their seventh film in Atlanta. At this point, no official comment has been shared from Paul’s family or fellow actors. Paul was 40 years old and leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter.

    It’s the irony of the way he died is what gets me. I guess you can say he died doing something he loved though.
