‘I Just Remember Seeing This Stud Walk Into The Room’: Jordana Brewster Reminisces About Fast & Furious Co-Star Paul Walker

Jordana Brewster has been reminiscing about her friendship with her Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker, recalling how mesmerised she was by the actor the first time they met.

Paul passed away last November after the car he was a passenger in crashed at high speed in California. The 40-year-old was midway through shooting Fast & Furious 7 when he died, with his co-stars, including Jordana, making their way back to set this month after a hiatus.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, Jordana recalls that she knew Paul was special the first time she saw him.

”I just remember seeing this stud walk into the room [the first time] and he had this bleached-out hair. I met him as a baby and I saw him grow into an awesome, amazing, charitable man”, the actress says.

”It’s not often you get to work with someone for so many years and he was so exemplary in the way he lived. He was more beautiful inside than out.”

Jordana’s words come as the actress took to the stage last night to pay tribute to Walker at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. “This past November, tragedy struck when Paul Walker’s life shockingly ended. The immense outpouring of grief around the world was a reflection of the kind of man Paul was,”Jordana told the audience.

“He was so, so special. I was lucky enough to work with him over the last 15 years and witness the generosity of his heart every day I was with him. He was humble, he thought about others. Whether you knew Paul for five minutes or a close friend, he made you feel like the most important person in the world.”

Another Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel narrated a video which included clips from such movies as She’s All That, Varsity Blues and of course the F&F series.

“The world saw his magic onscreen,” Diesel said. “Yet I wish the world could have seen how special a brother he was.”
