This Saturday, Paul Walker's daughter Meadow posted an unseen photo of her late dad in the water, smiling alongside a pig and captioned the picture saying, "Thinking of you. xx" The post has garnered 13,000 likes with some Fast & Furious co-stars commenting they had never seen the photo before. Jordana Brewster, who plays Paul Walker’s character’s wife Mia in the movies said, "I love this picture’ while Tyrese, who plays Roman, wrote, "Animal and Ocean lover!!! Never seen this pic! So cool!"
Meadow, who is 20-years-old now has posted a handful of photos of her father since his passing. Back in 2015, she launched the Paul Walker Foundation, which is a charity that has the mission to ‘do good’ and continue Paul’s legacy to help save the oceans. Apart from appearing in multiple movies, Walker was also a keen marine biologist and in 2006, he became a member of the Billfish Foundation. When Meadow announced the foundation, she wrote on Instagram, saying, "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."
She continued, "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." The foundation's website says that they serve 'as an enduring light of Paul’s unique spirit, far-reaching goals, and spontaneous goodwill. Many of his traits have been passed onto his daughter. Meadow is excited to be carrying on his legacy.'
Back in 2017, on Paul's birthday Meadow shared a picture of the pair dancing from when she was little and captioned it, writing, "Share a video or photo of your random act of kindness and nominate 4 people to join the challenge!" Paul Walker's death in 2013 sent shockwaves through the world. The accident took place when the actor was driving back home from a charity event in his 2005 Porsche Carrera GT when a high-speed crash saw him spin out of control and turned his car up in flames that took his life.
