MEADOW

      Paul Walker's success in the franchise enabled him to create his own charity foundation, Reach Out Worldwide, but he continued his lifelong association with cars, running his own garage, and still held a dealer's licence. But he sounded ambivalent about continuing with the business when he spoke last year...

"It’s kind of a, 'been there, done that' kind of thing. It supported the hobby for a while but it turned into a real business, you know.

"Friends are working for me so I'm just going to keep it going but it doesn’t mean as much to me as it once did, that’s for sure.

"I think, you know, I've got a 13-, almost 14-year-old daughter. Priorities are in different places, but it’ll always be a big part of who I am, that’s for sure." source

11 March 2014

Exactly one year ago tonight I was blessed to meet Paul Walker, the actor I was crazy in love with and for that reason I came back to the Zach Theatre, the place I met him

It was a moment in my life that I treasure and will never forget. Yes, Meadow was by her father's side the whole time and she was very quiet...a very beautiful young lady she is. source

My friend on twitter transleted the article:

        "I just read is too much to translate. But Paul and his daughter was is São Paulo I believed last march!! For a fashion stuff.They said that Paul was very simple and he loved Coconut Water and always using his cell phone!! They said Paul was very protect, no one was permit to take photos of his daughter Meadow! He was a very happy with his relationship with her.Very protect about her!! Mostly his visit was about the collection for the fashion show. He participated like a model do u know!!"

March 21, 2013

Para a atração principal do desfile de uma marca geralmente são reservados os maiores camarins disponíveis na São Paulo Fashion Week, para acomodar confortavelmente a entourage das estrelas, o bufê pedido por elas e, de vez em quando, seus egos.

Paul Walker, astro de 'Velozes e furiosos' e estrela do desfile de Verão da Colcci ganhou o maior camarim do backstage da Colcci, mas sua equipe tinha apenas 3 pessoas, incluindo seu agente e sua filha Meadow Rain, de apenas 14 anos, seu bufê, apenas sanduichinhos, frutas e água de coco e seu ego, caberia em uma caixinha de fósforo.

Esta é a primeira vez que o ator sobe à passarela e nenhum pingo de nervosismo pôde ser percebido em seu rosto, apenas sorrisos. Ele é suuuuper low profile, dispensou qualquer tipo de badalação pós-desfile e suas exigências giram em torno apenas de Meadow, que não pode ser fotografada e assistirá à performance do papai diretamente da primeira fila, acompanhada pela equipe da marca. Paul fez poucas entrevistas e recebeu todos os jornalistas em um grande sofá branco de couro, como se na sala de sua casa na Califórnia estivesse, e, quando não havia ninguém sentado ao seu lado, não desgrudou do celular - bem gente como a gente.

Meadow é discreta como o pai. Chegou à Bienal usando um look inteirinho da Colcci, naturalmente, e, para jantar, escolheu um discreto prato de massa com manteiga, já que não gosta de molho de tomate, acompanhado por um copo de guaraná, iguaria tipicamente brasileira que ela nunca havia provado e a-do-rou.

Em duas salas menores, anexas ao camarim de Paul, Izabel Goulart, Thairine Garcia e Erin Heatherton faziam cabelo, maquiagem e os últimos ajustes em seus looks, superbordados em preto e branco. Erin chegou por aqui usando um vestido de lurex e, tadinha, ficou morrendo de frio, espirrava no camarim por conta do poderoso ar condicionado e precisou ser socorrida pelo casaco de uma das assessoras. Mas nada que pudesse atrapalhar a performance da ex-namorada de Leonardo di Caprio na passarela, que nós vamos conferir daqui a pouco. SOURCE

Paul Walker's Daughter Keeps Him Disciplined

The Hollywood hunk, 29, has given up his partying and slowed down the pace of his life to spend as much time as possible with his four-year-old daughter Meadow. And his former hobbies - skydiving and bungee jumping - are history. He continues, "I cut that stuff out completely. You find that you keep yourself in check when you become a father. "When I was younger, I laughed when people said having kids affects the way you think. I'd say, 'Yeah, whatever.' "It's like one of those things they say - that when you get older, you become more like your parents. Well, it's so true." source

What would you like people to know about Paul both as an actor and a person?

He was not “Hollywood.”  When you think about the negative stereotypes, for someone who was part of one of the biggest franchises in the world, he was not driven by material things.  He loved his daughter, that was very evident to anyone who met him. And he treated everyone -whether it was a production assistant or an intern – the same.  That was really refreshing to be around. source

"Varsity Blues" Cast Remembers Paul Walker

"He was smitten with a girl on set and so us guys liked to heckle him about it! Paul and I also talked about his newly born daughter, Meadow, and how much she meant to him. You could tell he was going to be a great father and I respected him for that." source

Q: Is it true that your daughter beat up reporters on the street?
PAUL: No, not reporters, just a girl on the street, she’s asking my for my autograph, and my daughter punched her in the leg, like “what are you doing?”
Q: How old is your daughter?
PAUL: She’s going to be six.
Q: Does she know what you do?
PAUL: See, the thing is, she’d never been on a set up until “The Fast and the Furious” sequel. She didn’t even know what I did for the longest time. We didn’t want to make too big a deal about it. But then her mom was finally like, you know if you keep it secret, then maybe all of a sudden it is a big deal. And there will come a time when she figures it out. It’s hard, because in class, everywhere she goes, her mom is always like, “Oh my god, Paul, you have no idea,” she’s like: “people want to be friends with her, they want their kids to be friends with her, it’s bad.” She’s like: “Maybe I’m a bit paranoid, and reading into it, but that’s just…”
Q: How do you balance a career and fatherhood?
PAUL: It’s hard…

Q: Did your dad see “Noel?” Did your dad cry?

PAUL: No, my dad doesn’t cry. My daughter hasn’t seen it.
Q: Does your daughter show any signs of being an actress?
PAUL: She’s such a drama queen! (laughs)

TeenHollywood: Is this movie too scary for your little girl to see (She'll be seven in November)?

Paul: Yeah, i don't think i'd want her to see it. we've been working on this surfing thing. she's really excited about surfing so I went out and bought a tandem long board. A 13 footer. It was actually a pretty sizeable day. Surf was a little big, but I felt confident and comfortable in my abilities and I thought, "We'll go for it".We're having a good time. I'm catching the shoulder of the wave which is where it is tapering off. It's a little bit smaller. We're hooting and hollering and having a blast.

TeenHollywood: So nothing dangerous?

Paul: Well, on one ride out we're talking and she froze up. I'm looking at her and talking and 'Oh, no' It was big. it was a solid 12 - 15 foot wave. Typically, in a long board you'd roll under and you'd hold on, you let the wave blast over you. Basically the longboard becomes a shield. She can't do that. She doesn't have the strength to hold on. So, the debate was what do I do? So, I paddle at the waves and I kind of press myself up and the force of the wave kind of blew her back at me and I grabbed her and then I came up (holding her) like Raifiki did with Simba in The Lion King. (Laughs). She was like, "Daddy, I don't want to go in!" Just streaming in tears. So, She's spooked on big waves, the shark thing is still there. So, She doesn't need to see this movie.

Paul walker talks about how his daughter doesn't like to share her Dad



Andy Muxlow, a former schoolmate of the departed actor, made a statement to the Huffington Post telling about Walker’s love of the ocean and sharks and even revealed what his last conversation with Walker was like. He admitted:

“He said ‘I love my daughter and I don’t want to miss out on her life and family and caring for her.’ He was trying to see how he can be relocated more in the L.A. area to better care for her." source
Q: As a father yourself, how exciting was it for you making a family film since before that you have appeared in a lot of action films?
Paul Walker: “It was great, but the whole time I was making it I kept hoping that it would not be too sentimental. So I am happy that it has not turned out that way. Having a little girl myself, of course I was thrilled. When I read the script, it reminded me of those old Disney classics like 'Old Yeller'. They are happy; they are sad, but ultimately happy. I really had fun making the film. I felt very emotional and it was not easy to be emotional as an actor. There are some tearful moments in the film between the dogs and me. I found that challenging, even though I am a sensitive guy. I was afraid of being a cry-baby but I knew that if I wasn’t emotional on screen I would come across as insensitive, hopefully it worked in the end.”

Q; Your daughter must have been thrilled that you were making this film?
Paul Walker: “She was so excited, she was six at the time and came on the set and loved it. You can imagine what fun it was for her, she was super-happy. She was screaming with excitement a lot of the time and our dog was there too. Making this film is all about my daughter, for me, as well as my nieces and nephews. It is so nice to make a family film that they can enjoy. My mom was so happy too because she really wanted me to act in a movie for kids. So thank goodness I am popular with the whole family for a while at least!” source

When Meadow accompanied Walker on the Into the Blue Bahamas set in late 2003, co-star Alba took delight in watching father interact with daughter. "She's really girly and feminine, which is quite funny because Paul is so active and into sports," Alba says. "It's a nice balance for Paul."

After a traumatizing attempt to teach his daughter to surf, the proud papa concedes that "Meadow's really delicate, gentle and sweet. I knew almost right away that my life with Meadow was going to be all about ballerinas, princesses and fairy godmothers. source

Aside from his charm and irresistible good looks, what made this actor stand out was his loving devotion for his daughter Meadow, 15. The two had recently reconnected and she was all Paul thought about. He'd light up when he spoke about her, saying he was eager to fly home to spend time with her, and how the only woman in his life was his daughter. I was swept away on how much he loved playing perhaps his most gratifying role... being a father. My thoughts and condolences go out to his beautiful daughter source

Best in the world: "Meadow Rain, My Daughter" source

What about your daughter?
“Meadow is definitely a girly girl. She likes to bake stuff with me and I’ve even played Barbies. Whenever I’m on location she comes and visits me. So she’s seen a lot of cool places, and I love to hang out with her. I think my mom put it best. She said, ‘Little girls soften their daddy’s hearts.’'' source

What stops you from doing stupid things?
I have my daughter Meadow’s name in a tattoo on my wrist, which keeps me from doing stupid stuff. It makes me think before I do something. source

So, he was in town filming Fast 7. They were done filming early and decided to go across the street to grab some drinks at the place my wife works at. She text me immediately because i'm a huge fan of the Fast and Furious movies and of course Paul Walker. Paul told me that his daughter was coming in that night to hang out with him. Everyone else in his crew was going out that night, but he seemed more excited about seeing his child then anything else. source

"The last couple of years he really grew into the role of a dad…He went through all those things dads go through. He was stressed, he was worried, and he was anxious. There were times he was so excited about the relationship." "He had this thing where he would have Meadow come over and hug him and he loved doing that. He loved just loving her…[Fatherhood] was something you could just tell was lighting him up. He was having a blast being a dad. She is at that age where he could be a dad and a friend at the same time, he was really digging that." - Jesse Brisendine source

        At the bowling alley, Walker was very polite, and he was conversational and friendly towards fans that approached him. One of my fellow bowlers (and co-workers at that time) was Walker’s neighbor on the Mesa in Santa Barbara, and she also recalled his easy-going friendliness. Although a well-known Hollywood action star, he waited patiently in line behind me (despite me taking awhile to get my lane). He didn’t insist on any star treatment.

One thing that many people don’t know about Walker is that he was a devoted single father. Most people don’t picture the Fast and Furious action star in that way.

I will always remember the reason why Walker was at the bowling alley. He was there with his young teenage daughter — probably around thirteen at that time — Meadow Walker and a large gaggle of her teenybopper friends. It was her birthday, and he had taken her out on the town. I ended up bowling only a few lanes down from him, and I observed two things:

1. He was one heck of a bowler. That guy was getting strikes all over the place.
2. He doted over his daughter. It was obvious that she was the world to him.

        As images of Walker filled the news channels and websites, memories flashed in my mind, and I recalled seeing the joy on Meadow Walker’s face as she bowled with her dad on her birthday. Please pray for Meadow. She is still a young teenager, and she just lost her single dad. source

I debated writing this post forever but I wanted to take the time and let people know that Paul Walker was actually a drifting fan. This photo shows him at Irwindale Speedway this year which he attended. Paul obviously had plenty of other things he could be doing on a weekend but always took some time to attend drift events. It was great to have such a influential automotive person be a supporter of the drift world. The car community at large and more importantly the drift world has lost a high profile fan of the sport and one great actor. source

Paul Walker's Last Movie, 'Hours'
me
ezhicadenira
MV5BMTQ2NzA4NzM2N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTkxMTA1MDE@._V1_SX640_SY720_


Hours director Eric Heisserer tells ET that Meadow visited Walker on the Hours set revealing, "It was important for him to have her close. We even talked about the fact that he had a tattoo of her name. I saw the connection he had [with her] from that and we agreed not to cover it up for the movie. He had a really special relationship with her." He goes on to say, "Paul had so much worry and fear about being a good father, and the right father, to Meadow." source

Heisserer took to Imgur to share his memories of working with Walker on the New Orleans-based set, the admiration he had for the actor and the laughs they shared. This touching tribute serves as a way for Heisserer to honor Walker even as the movie they made together starts to play. source
Hours costar Judd Lormand said “What I’ll remember most was how his blue eyes lit up when we talked about our daughters,” source

Walker's enthusiasm landed him the role in "Hours." He hired acting coaches to prepare and rehearsed with Heisserer at the filmmaker's house three times a week in the two months leading up to the spring 2012 shoot. The director and the actor talked about how to get Walker into the right head space on set, developing code words that would throw the actor into an emotional state.

It was during those visits that Heisserer learned just how close Walker had gotten to his own daughter, who until 2011 lived in Hawaii with her mother. Because his character is alone on screen for much of "Hours" performing numerous monologues — what Heisserer calls "proscenium acting" — the filmmaker found any reminder of Meadow helped ground Walker's performance. So they put pictures of her inside of the incubator that was supposed to be holding the protagonist's baby and left a tattoo reading "Meadow" on Walker's wrist uncovered.

The personal touchstones ultimately helped Walker turn in a performance he was proud of. Earlier this year, he brought Meadow to a private screening and though he quickly ran out as the credits rolled — the room was crawling with agents — he called Heisserer from the road, "beaming with pride," the director said. source

You said that this movie is a little bit like your life and you have a teenage daughter. Is it difficult raising a teen?

Well, we’re finding our balance. She started living with me last year, and just when I was leaving to go work on Fast – and I’m doing another one now. It’s really kind of tearing on me, to be honest with you, to try and maintain the balance. And fortunately enough, we’re filming in Atlanta – but I’ve come home every weekend. Two weeks in a row, I came back three times. She just turned 15. It’s critical times. I’m big on analogies, and I look at her like she’s this rocket ship, and I’m this kind of launching pad, and I want to get the trajectory right. You know, she’s going to be my daughter and I’m going to be her dad for the rest of our lives, and I want it to be cool. I sure don’t want to be looking back and go, “Fuck! Because you were gone. Maybe. What if? And you should have been home more!” So, that’s the noise in my head right now – is trying to find the balance… and she’s super supportive and is like, “No. Go. This is what you do.” But I’m like, “Yeah, but how significant is it really? It’s kind of trivial. This is our time together. We’ve got 3 years, and then you’re going to be out of the house.” She’s like, “You’re talking like I’m going to be gone forever.” I’m like, “Yeah, but how much longer is it going to be before you show up at the door with Johnny.” She’s like, “Who is Johnny?”

Is she dating already?

[Jokingly laughs] No. No. No.

So you’ve got that to look forward to… [laughs]

We’ll see. It’s a cool time right now. We’re both just kind of finding our stride. We’re really honest with each other, which is cool. She tells me what her needs are. I think sometimes she tries to be a little tougher than I want her to be. I want her to be more revealing like, “You’re not home enough!” or “Sometimes you don’t pay enough attention to what I’m saying.” I want her to say those things ‘cause I know there’s times that I’m not… but I police it pretty well, I think.

Has she seen you in this?

Yeah, I took her. The first time I saw it I took her. It was cool to watch the reaction because I’m proud of the work that I did – because I told the truth the whole time. There was only a couple of times where there was a take and I didn’t believe it, and I would say to Eric, “I didn’t like that one. I didn’t believe it. I was trying to force something. I was just saying words.” And I remember when I was talking with my agent Teresa, she’s like, “Well how’s it going?” I’m like, “It’s going really well. I’m probably about halfway through it.” She’s like, “What’s the experience like?” And I’m like, “I don’t know. It’s good. I’m telling the truth the whole time.” I realize I told her – and it’s kind of scary too, you know. If people don’t like my performance in this, they just don’t like me, because I’m putting it all on the line in this. It’s who I am. So, at the end of it… for people… the response… I’m like, “Thank God.” I guess it means I’m OK. source

Paul, to go back to something you just said, is looking for a project that resonates with where you are in your life something new for you?
Walker:
I think it’s something I’ve always known. I think that’s why there’s been so much ambivalence and why I’ve been so uncomfortable, to be honest with you, for this whole ride. It wasn’t something I ever chose and it wasn’t until recently that I realized, “Hey, look, you can make this work for you.” It’s just a matter of just taking the reins. And it’s not a matter of taking control, but you can get off the fucking hamster wheel, right? I’m really grateful for the opportunity, but I think not knowing how to manage it, how to make it work for you… It’s all a balance. And once you find it, you lose it. And I think now, too, my daughter is 14 years old and I want to take God-given opportunities and I want to maximize. I want her to see it. She was there for the premiere and she’s proud. She’s excited. And she’s proudest, I think, for the same reason why I wanted to be a part of it. It’s truthful, it’s pure. Of course, I think there’s a part of her that also thinks it’s cool when dad’s in a big studio movie. [Laughs]. I think if it wasn’t for the fact that I’d had the blockbusters, that’s probably what I’d be pursuing. But I’ve had those for a period and now I want to plug in to whatever fills the soul. Source

Is the reason you're busier than ever on the acting front because you're more secure in the other areas of your life/career?

To me, I have a daughter that’s 14 years old. I’ve always been more of a transient sort of dude, I’ve always gone with the energy and the way it takes me. And she’s living full time with me now; I’m a full-time single father as of this past fall. This opportunity’s been put in my lap so I want to seize it, I want to make it work. And if it isn’t exactly what I want then I want to figure out a way to make it that. So all this information I’m sharing with you and where I’ve been on this journey, that’s open conversation. I mean we talk about it all the time. She’s getting to a place now where she’s trying to figure out who she, what she is in this world, forming a sense of identity, trying to find her sense of purpose, her style and all this stuff. So I think it’s the more we talk about it, this is just kind of life’s path.

Everyone’s in a difference at different times, everyone learns in his or her own time whatever it is they’re supposed to learn and what’s supposed to be revealed to them. It’s cool, she gets it, she appreciates it. She’s here with me at the festival. She gets into it, she wants to go into environmental law right now. That’ll change next week. It’s a fun time for both of us and she’s a cool partner, she’s the best partner I’ve ever had. Source

Jordana Brewster "He lived with integrity, humanity and humility and seemed most happy when talking about his daughter, Meadow,"

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson "It was always the number one topic we would talk about. We would talk about silly guy things, his fast cars and my pickup trucks, or we would talk about the beautiful energy of Hawai’i — but it always ultimately came back to family. And very specifically the beautiful and important bond between a father and his daughter, and how we both realized that over the years. Not surprisingly, when I got the news that he had passed away, the first words out of my mouth were, “He has a daughter.” It’s very sad. We can’t help but to hope that their final time together was beautiful and strong and an amazing memory."

Paul Walker's Dad:
"She's so sweet and beautiful…I'm gonna have a real hard time talking with Meadow. I really am. It's gonna be a tough deal. Gonna be real rough," he told E! News and mentioned that all he's been able to do so far is "give her a hug and kiss. It's hard to get to Meadow because she's got so many people close to her that are loving her and we want that."
“She’s really broken up, [she took it] really hard. Paul was so close to her. He wanted to take a little hiatus so he could spend [more time with her]. He said dad, ‘She’s 15, she’s going to be gone soon."

"He told me recently he was the happiest he'd ever been," close friend Brandon Birtell tells PEOPLE. "It was directly because of the growing relationship with his daughter and the clarity that brought to his life."
"It really affected him that he missed time with her in her early years because he was working,"

In fact, despite the fact that the free-spirited Walker "liked the freedom of having no roots, she was the only thing he couldn't stand being away from,” adds Birtell. So much so that Meadow and her dad would coordinate schedules to provide for ample father/daughter time together. Shares Britell: "Paul told Meadow he didn't want to take a particular movie because he didn't want to be away from her. [Meadow] asked where it would be shooting and he gave her the dates and said, 'Overseas.' She thought for a minute and said, 'That's during my summer vacation. We can do that.' "

Must read the interview of Paul Walker’s Manager Matt Luber: "Looks Back On 18 Years Growing Up Together"

"He was going to do a Nicholas Sparks love story, The Best Of Me. We had wanted to do a love story for most of his career, and the stars finally aligned and we found the perfect one. He was in the final stages of negotiating to do that after Agent 47. After that, he was committed to taking a significant break to be with his daughter.”

“It was the biggest struggle in his life, from when she lived in Hawaii with her mom in her younger years, to when she came to California and he was working a lot,” Luber said. “He had become more discerning in his choices, and movies became less the priority. The last couple of years with her had an amazing effect on him. They connected and developed a nice relationship which he was determined to have before she graduated high school.”

This is according to two of his closest friends, Ronn Shikari and Vince Krause, who both live in Hawaii.

They’ve both seen the love Paul has for Meadow and say he was sick of filming abroad and away from his daughter. That is why he was due to retire from acting and lead a life away from the limelight, so that he could get to know his daughter even more.
"He was a family man and I know it hurt him to be spending so much time away from Meadow on location; he loved being with his daughter, she was his world. That’s why he wanted to retire from acting and talked to his family about it, as he’d achieved everything he wanted to achieve."
‘Paul was one of the best people I have ever known,’ he added. ‘He was as selfless a person as I have met. He loved being a father and it was very clear that his daughter was the most important thing in the world to him."

Paul Walker talked about his daughter, Meadow

SOURCE

Walker arrived in Austin with a full brood in tow, including his father and his only child, 14-year-old Meadow. He credited his daughter, who after spending most of her life in Hawaii with her mother recently started living with him full-time, with a new found sense of grounding. “My heart was desperate for so many years with the situation with my daughter. She’s living in Hawaii and she’s there and I’m running here. My daughter lives with me full time now and she’s the best partner I’ve ever had. It’s so nuts. I’ve never had anything like this in my life. I’ve been so transient, I’ve been on my own since I was 16. I didn’t even have my own place until I was 32 years old. I literally lived out of bags for 16-plus years.”

Transitioning from vacation Dad to full-time Dad has inspired a shift in priorities. “There’s a part of me who feels like I’m making up for lost time,” he says. “I was like ‘Okay that’s it, I’m not working, leave me alone.’ Just recently they came at me with an offer of something going in the summertime, and I wanted to punch them in the face for even coming to me with it. ‘You know what my priorities are right now, why are you even tempting me with this?’ I got home and I was just pissed off and my daughter was like ‘What’s the matter?’ And I told her what happened and she mellowed me out and she’s so funny. She sits me down and she’s like ‘When does it go? What months? I like to travel in the summertime anyway.’ So I said ‘We should actually entertain this one?’ and we both sat down and read it. We’re thinking about it.”

Driving his daughter, Meadow Rain, to school in the morning, "I just shut up, sit back and stay quiet," he told PEOPLE in 2011, when she was about to turn 13. "She opens up and reveals a whole lot. The trick is to not ask questions, just listen. I'm figuring it out." Meadow spent her early years living in Hawaii with her mom, but Walker and McBrain shared custody and the toddler often visited her dad on his movie sets before moving back to California. When she was 7, Walker taught her to surf: "Every day I pick her up from school and we go out on a longboard," Walker told PEOPLE in 2006. "She really loves it." A few years ago, Walker offered up his L.A.-area house for Meadow and her mom to stay in, and was helping her adjust to a new school. "She's starting all over. She's doing well," he proudly told PEOPLE in 2011. "She's a warrior, that one, so she has no difficulty making friends."

SOURCE

In his August interview with GQ U.K., Walker opened up about how his daughter encouraged him to keep acting. (He was set to appear in six movies from 2013 to 2014.) "It's so funny, my daughter now lives with me full time and my original plan was to work up until I was 40 then reassess my life, even go in a completely different direction with things," the California native explained. "She keeps encouraging me to do all this stuff. I thought at this point in my life I would need to be home with her, but she wants me to keep acting so she can travel around the world with me. Would that be so bad?

SOURCE

"My baby wasn't planned," said Walker. "I wasn't married, out of wedlock, the whole bit. (I was) finding my step with it. I'm still finding my step. I think you always are. I'm five times the father that I was five years ago. Your head's more in it. Your heart's more in it. You can't force it. You want to be better at it, just something hasn't clicked yet."

"I think my mom said it best," Paul Walker told PARADE in 2009. "She said, 'Little girls soften their daddy's hearts.'" The actor was close to his 15-year-old daughter Meadow – in 2011, she moved from Hawaii to California to be near him. "She's a bit more like her mother [Rebecca]," he told PEOPLE in 2011. "But she's also how I am innately. [Meadow]'s more of a free roamer and she appreciates the little stuff."

On His Hopes for His Daughter (she was 5 years old at the time of this interview)

“I have a daughter and she’s been going on camping trips with me recently. It’s important to me that she experiences those things and grows while doing all that. I think sometimes it may be overwhelming for her because of who her daddy is and what he does. I hope it never gets to a [bad] level, but there’s a chance it will, and I just know that the only way to offset that would be to make the outdoors a key part of her life. Being out in nature is a big part of the way I am the way I am today. I was really freaked out [about becoming a dad]. The whole thought of being a dad was scary to me. It’s kind of like that Creed song that says, I don’t know if I’m ready/To be the man I have to be. Every day, you find yourself scratching your head, going, ‘Wow am I really? I guess I really am! I would imagine that even when I’m 40 and looking at her, I’ll still be going, I’m a dad! It’s just pretty wild. I don’t think it’s anything you get fully used to, because I don’t think anybody thinks that they’re truly prepared or ready for that.”

In one of his final interviews, Walker recently told WENN he was enjoying life as a dad to his teenage daughter Meadow after revealing she had moved in with him last year.
He said, “She started living with me last year just when I was leaving to go to work on Fast (& Furious 6). It’s really kind of tearing on me trying to maintain the balance. She just turned 15 and it’s a critical time. I’m big with analogies so I look at it like this big rocket ship and she’s on this launching pad.
“I want to get the trajectory right. It’s just me and my daughter and I’m gonna be her dad for the rest of our lives so I want it to be cool. I sure as hell don’t want to be looking back and go, ‘F**k, what if, and I should’ve been home more’. She’s super supportive and is like, ‘No, go; this is what you do’. I’m like, ‘We’ve got three years and you’re gonna be out of the house. How much longer before you show up with Johnny?’
“We’re really honest with each other which is cool. She tells me what her needs are and tries to be a little tougher than I want her to be sometimes. I want her to be more revealing like, ‘You’re not home enough…’ I want her to say those things.”

"I'm glad I had her at 25, because at 40 and 15, we're matching up sweet. It's just working," the blue-eyed star told Us at an event for his film Hours in mid-November. "It's perfect."

Paul Walker Filming 'Hours'

“This father is doing everything he can to just keep things going, keep electricity going, to keep this little baby going,” Walker said. “My little girl means the whole world to me. I really want to believe that if I was placed in the same situation that I would rise above, that I would be able to see it through the end and do what it would take to make sure my baby came out on top.”

Walker, in an interview he had given to Greece’s MTV show “Movie & Stars,” among other things, said: “Greece is my place. My daughter has Greek origins as her mother is half Greek, half Swedish. Her maiden name is Sotiropoulos. I visited Greece as well during the summer Olympic Games, back in 2004.”




Paul Walker has a tattoo

 the tattoo on his right inside wrist is visible and simply reads: Meadow.

This leads to the logical assumption that it refers to his daughter Meadow Rain and makes the tattoo even more plausible and real.

Paul Walker Talks About His Passion as a Father

Despite her young age, Walker valued Meadow's opinion, saying that the two would discuss projects that he was considering.

"She's gotta be on board," said Walker, who sported a tattoo of his daughter's name on his wrist. "I'm only going to have her in the house for another couple years ... I gotta put in the time while I can."

At the time, Meadow was living with Walker full-time and was even with him while shooting Brick Mansions.

"[Meadow] is here with me. Her girlfriend came out from Hawaii and I've been taking them out to eat," said Walker. "It's been fun."

One area that Meadow never got to weigh in on was Walker's love life, as Walker focused too much on fatherhood to set aside time for a significant other.

"Right now there's only time for her," said Walker.

Walker died in a fiery car accident on November 30. He was 40 years old.

Walker's family asks that in lieu of flowers or other gifts that donations please be made to Paul's charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW). Donations can easily be made through their website at http://www.ROWW.org/.
