Paul Walker's daughter Meadow to make film debut in Fast X to honor her dad

Paul Walker's daughter Meadow to make film debut in Fast X to honor her dad

It's been nearly a decade since Paul Walker passed away, with his daughter paying to tribute to him in the latest Fast and Furious film

Paul Walker’s daughter will appear in the next Fast and Furious film, as she pays tribute to her late father.

The highly anticipated Fast X will be released next week with Meadow Walker having a small cameo in the motoring movie.

The appearance will also mark nearly a decade since her dad tragically passed away in a car accident in 2013.

At the time, the Fast and Furious actor had been en route to an event for his charity with his friend Roger Rodas - a former racecar driver.

Traveling in the latter’s red 2005 Porsche Carerra GT, the pair were driving to Santa Clarita when the vehicle unexpectedly collided with a concrete lamppost and two trees.

Shortly after the crash, the LA County Sheriff confirmed that both men had been killed during the incident.

It was later found that speed had been the ultimate cause, with the Porsche reaching speeds of 80-93mph, despite the limit being just 45mph in the area.

Following the investigation, the police department told the press: “Investigators determined the cause of the fatal solo-vehicle collision was unsafe speed for the roadway conditions.”

Walker was just 40 years old at the time, with the Into the Blue star leaving behind his brother, Cory, and his then-fifteen-year-old daughter Meadow.

Paul Walker passed away in 2013 aged 40.

Nearly a decade on, Meadow is set to star in Fast X, the tenth entry into the Fast and Furious franchise.

Like her father before her, the model-turned-actor will appear alongside Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and Ludacris in the fast-paced action flick.

She even shared a preview of her cameo on her Instagram page, with a caption that thanked the cast who’d she’d grown up with on set.

Meadow Walker will start in the next instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise.

It read: “The first Fast was released when I was one year old! I grew up watching my father Vin Jordana, Michelle, Chris and more on the monitors. Thanks to my dad, I was born into a fast family.

“I can't believe now I get to be up there too. With those who have been around to see me grow up.

"I am so blessed to be able to honor my father's legacy and share this with him forever."

The now 24-year-old also thanked the director Louis Leterrier for bringing her on board, saying it felt like the filmmaker had been ‘part of the family’ since the first Fast movie.

With Leterrier also set to direct the next instalment of the film series, it will be interesting to see if Meadow takes over her father’s mantle.

Fast X is set to arrive in cinemas on 19 May.
