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.
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
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
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
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
Paul Walker Talks About His Passion as a Father
"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."
"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/.
