'He Wasn't Big On Fame' - Paul Walker's Father Reveals Actor Had Been Planning To Retire Prior To His Death
The father of Paul Walker has revealed that the actor had been planning to take an extended break from the silver screen at the time of his death.
The Fast And Furious star died tragically in a car accident last November and in an emotional interview to mark his anniversary, Paul Walker Snr said that his son had hoped to step back from fame and spend more time with his daughter.
"Paul was planning on taking a break from starring in movies, and stepping away from Hollywood to spend more time with Meadow. He was so proud of her, she is incredibly intelligent and beautiful, and Paul wanted to be there for her as she grew up. In fact, he would have swapped his Hollywood fame for the quiet life with Meadow. Paul wasn't big on fame and preferred to live modestly.
"But he signed on for the Agent 47 movie about a hit man, and it was already agreed that if it was successful there would be three further movies made. That was something he confessed to me he wished he hadn't done because he wanted to be with Meadow."
He added that the family were still struggling to come to terms with the 40-year-old's death.
"I'm missing him more now, the last month. It's not getting any better for me.
"I'm not looking forward to Thanksgiving. He died two days after that and I guess it'll probably be that way until I'm with him. It's a sad time. We're a very close, loving family and Paul is a piece that's missing now, that we're always going to miss."
