Paul Walker left a great philanthropic and professional legacy. For those who had the opportunity to work with him, today we remember him as a wonderful colleague who would give the best of himself in every project.
This is how stars, Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson and Don Omar who all worked with Paul in the Fast & Furious Trilogy remember their colleague and friend and honor his memory.
“Rio de Janeiro, FF5 (Fast Five) rest in peace Paul Walker”. Wrote Don Omar on his Instagram below his picture with Paul Walker.
It was in 2009 and 2011, the reggaeton singer made his acting debut in the forth and fifth installment of the Fast & Furious saga.
Walker has worked with a number of Latino actors over the course of his 27-year career, including Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Freddie Prinze Jr., Eva Mendes, Penelope Cruz, Jessica Alba, Jacob Vargas, J.R. Villarreal, John Ortiz, Laz Alonzo, Jay Hernandez, Don Omar, Elsa Pataky and many others.
