Fair-haired and blue-eyed actor, Paul Walker skillfully portrayed the charismatic Brain. He depicted the character, which had 2 faces.

He had a task to ingratiate himself with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), the champion of illegal street racing. Dominic was suspected of a string of street robberies, done on four wheels.
Paul was born in the family of a fashion model (mother) and a sewer contractor (father). Walker had an upbringing as a Mormon. Being beautiful like an angel, Paul immediately became popular as a child model. He had participated in TV commercials since he was 2. He joined the career of a child model by getting academic education at Village Christian School.
Soon Paul’s commercials turned into tiny supportive roles. One of his first screen works was in the series “Highway to Heaven”, which became a real hit in the 1980s. The angel-like teen boy Paul appeared as Todd Bryant in the 6th episode of the 1st season.

Later he acted in the teen comedy “She’s All That” before diving into the Fast and the Furious universe.
For many years Paul was an inseparable part of the films about street racers. The high speed made him rich and popular. Unfortunately, the high speed became the reason for his early death. Paul Walker died in a car accident in 2013. He was going in a car, driven by his friend Roger Rodas, when the latter one lost control of his Porsche Carrera.
