6. Paul was always held in high regard and was close friends with his “Fast and Furious” co-star Tyrese Gibson. Vin Diesel considered Paul to be like a brother, and affectionately called him “Pablo”.
Paul Walker’s mother often referred to her son as Vin Diesel’s “other half”. Perhaps the chemistry between the cast members is part of the reason why the Fast and Furious franchise has been so successful. (source)
7. Paul’s father was a two-time “Golden Gloves” champion. His grandfather also had a boxing career as “Irish’ Billie Walker”.
8. Paul had a brown belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
When Paul was tragically killed, he was already a brown belt at the Paragon Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in California, under instructor Ricardo ‘Franjinha’ Miller.
