Paul Walker's daughter Meadow still receives sign from dad 10 years after his death

Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow has said she still receives a sign from her dad 10 years after his death, and that it helps her know everything is going to be ‘OK’.
Her father, Paul Walker, 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.
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'.
She’s now appearing in the high octane film franchise her dad was famous for, with a cameo role in Fast X.
While promoting the movie in an interview with E! News, she said she feels thrilled to be stepping into his shoes alongside the Fast and Furious family.
"For me this is super exciting and he would be amazed that this is happening,” she said.
Insisting that modelling is still her main hustle, she’s still ‘thinking about’ shooting more movies in the future.
“Modelling is my focus and that's my big passion, but I could see myself potentially in the future breaking out a little bit,” Meadow explained.
She continued to say she still feels a connection with her father, 10 years after his untimely death.
“For me, it's numbers, four and seven are my dad's favourite numbers,” Meadow said.
“And I swear whenever I'm doubting anything or whenever I'm in an argument with someone or anything, I start seeing four and seven everywhere. So I always know that it's him.
“Even yesterday, I was having a moment and then the clock bells started ringing. And I was like, "OK, it's all good, it's gonna be OK." '
"Over many missions and against impossible odds, Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have outsmarted, out-nerved and outdriven every foe in their path," a synopsis says.
"Now, they confront the most lethal opponent they’ve ever faced: A terrifying threat emerging from the shadows of the past who’s fuelled by blood revenge, and who is determined to shatter this family and destroy everything - and everyone - that Dom loves, forever."
At one point, we see Agent Aimes, played by Reacher star Alan Ritchson, confronting Dom and mocking him about how easy it was to catch him.
This sequence involves a complex car spin, that Ritchson said felt like the 'most ridiculous thing in the world' to shoot.
However, thankfully it paid off in the final movie, with the actor saying that the end result looked 'real traumatic'.
Speaking to LADbible, Ritchson recalled: "We were on a chassis that spun, and we didn’t go 360 [degrees], we kind of went forward and back and we sort of simulated this whole roll.
“And we had to sell it, so the whole thing was we had to act like we were getting tossed 360 degrees, like, ‘Head back! Head forward!’
“And it felt like the most ridiculous thing in the world but it really worked in the film, it looks real traumatic. I felt like a complete idiot doing it!”
