Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow is following in the footsteps of her father! The 24-year-old is all set to feature in the new installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise. On Thursday, the model gave a glimpse of her cameo in Fast X, which is set to release on May 19th.
Meadow is the only child of Paul Walker, who passed away in 2013 in a car crash. She was 15 at the time. The model shares a close relationship with the F&F family and considers Vin Diesel her godfather.
Meadow Walker to Make a Cameo in Fast X
Meadow took to Instagram on May 11th to share a picture of her shot from Fast X. In the photo, the actress is seen inside an airplane wearing the costume of an air hostess. “A preview of my cameo in Fast X. The first fast was released when I was one year old!” she wrote in the caption.
Meadow further talked about how she spent her childhood on the sets of the films. “I grew up on set watching my father, Vin, Jordana, Michelle, Chris and more on the monitors. Thanks to my dad, I was born into the 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. Thank you @louisleterrierpro for your kindness, patience and support. It feels like you’ve been part of the family since we started, I’m happy it’s just the beginning.”
“Special shoutout to my dad’s best friend who is now my best friend @bbirtell, this wouldn’t have been possible without you.” Meadow then expressed her gratitude for being able to honor Paul’s legacy and wrote, “I am so blessed to be able to honor my father’s legacy and share this with him forever. I love you all so much.”
Vin Diesel Walked Meadow Down the Aisle at Her Wedding Two Years Ago
Meadow got married to Louis Thornton-Allan in 2021. At the time, she was walked down the aisle by her godfather, Vin Diesel. The two have formed a close bond over the years. In February this year, Diesel had confirmed Meadow’s appearance in the Fast and Furious franchise.
“There is a very wonderful, rich feeling when you can make someone’s wish come true. If you are lucky enough in life to be able to do that, what’s better than that?” he said in an interview. He then took a moment to remember his best friend Paul.
“When the tragedy happened back in 2013, we stopped filming Furious 7 for about five months because we were wrapping our heads around what we were going to do, while mourning. And the studio accepted a bold decision, which was to allow the character to exist in our mythology.”
“And to that end alone, you have to honor that. On a personal level, we started this franchise together. Alongside us starting the franchise, we started a brotherhood. Our brotherhood will outlast the franchise,” Diesel continued.
