Paul Walker's Daughter Meadow Shares Never-Before-Seen Video Of Late Dad
| Last updated
Paul Walker's daughter Meadow has posted a never-before-seen video of her father on social media, saying the time 'felt right' to share it.
The poignant clip shows the moment she surprised her late dad on his birthday, turning up in his trailer at work as he falls onto the bed, laughing.
Pulling her in for a hug, the actor says to Meadow: "You just scared the hell out of me!"
Explaining why she wanted to share the clip, 21-year-old Meadow wrote in the Instagram caption: "I never thought I'd share this. But it felt right. Be good. I love you. Stay safe."
Her father Paul tragically died in November 2013, when the Porsche Carrera GT he was travelling in smashed into a concrete pole and burst into flames.
The car was travelling at 80-93mph in a 45mph zone when businessman Roger Rodas, who was behind the wheel, lost control near Kelly Johnson Parkway, California.
A coroner's report ruled that Walker died from the trauma of the crash as well as being burned when the vehicle caught fire.
Following his death, Meadow went on to set up a foundation in Paul's name, launching The Paul Walker Foundation with a simple mission statement to 'Do good'.
Reflecting his passion for the oceans, animals helping others and his 'spontaneous goodwill', the foundation aims to help empower 'future generations by providing grants, scholarship opportunities and spontaneous acts of goodwill'.
Writing on Instagram, Meadow said: "Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions. His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill.
"I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world. I want to share that part of him with others. I am tremendously proud to be launching The #PaulWalkerFoundation (@paulwalkerfdn) on his birthday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate my father."
