Paul Walker’s daughter settles lawsuit with Porsche

Meadow Walker, actor Paul Walker ‘ s daughter, settled a wrongful death lawsuit with Porsche after his tragic death in 2013. She claimed the company knew about the vehicle instability and control problems, but did not address the issues.

Nearly five years after his tragic death, Paul Walker is still in the minds and hearts of his family, friends and fans.

The actor’s life and legacy are celebrated in an upcoming documentary, “I Am Paul Walker,” and in honor of the touching tribute, ET, we look back on our greatest moments with Walker.

ET first met Walker in 1998, when he was quite a young actor starring in “Varsity Blues.” He was about to get his big break in Hollywood — but he made it clear he was going to do things his way.

“People are so afraid to offend anyone, or say something. You know, Maybe I don’t get another job, I don’t want to bad mouth this person or a bad person, ” he said. “Personally, I like to be straight up. If I get some stuff, or trash talk about someone, I’d be tempted to give it to you now… I don’t have, and that is the real story.”

Then, in 2000, ET was with the actor on the set of “The Fast and The Furious’, where he played as Brian O’conner, one of his most beautiful and iconic roles. When, however, Walker says that he was not nearly the driver, his character turned out to be. “We went to this racing school in Vegas,” he admitted. “I learned a lot. I’ve learned how little I knew about driving!”

Walker was a quick learner, but unfortunately, it was also a high-speed crash that killed him almost five years ago, on Nov. 30, 2013. ET spoke with the father of one of just six months prior to the accident, in which he said that his love for cars evolved throughout his life. “I grew up hunting and fishing, and I’ve always been in the archery. I have always been in the car, and it is as if they are associated, it always comes down to, oh, those are macho real guy things to do. In my family, that was just things that we did, that’s just the way it was,” he explained.

“So, you know, car, race, grow up [with] all the other car publications around the house, to my grandfather’s house, he had his own transmission, he built his own engines and, you know, he was the first to break 160 mph with the Ford Falcon back in the day, and that was a big deal. And then he started to race Mustangs and I think it’s just a part of my [DNA],” he continued, before prices “Fast and the Furious” as his ” dream job.”

“They were together, ben, dream work, so I am now living for a while now,” he said. “The dream is to have it all. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? … You live only once. I want to get it.”

“I Am Paul Walker” will premiere on Saturdays at 9 pm ET/PT on the Paramount Network. See more about Walker in the video below.
