Paul Walker was motivated by the desire to help. This is what actor Dwayne The Rock Johnson is claiming that Walker was not comfortable being in the spotlight and he was motivated to succeed in Hollywood by his desire to help other people.
The forty one year old star reveals that his late Into the Blue co star who died with his friend Roger Rodas, when a car in which Rodas was driving lost control and became a fireball after a charity car show in Santa Clarita, California on Saturday, November 30, 2103 had the motivation to succeed in Hollywood by his desire to help other people.
The ‘Pain & Gain’ star told Entertainment Weekly magazine:
”That was one of the interesting things about Paul: his reservations about being in the spotlight and being a star, whatever the definition of that may be.
”He was motivated by work that allowed him to take care of his family, number one, and that also allowed him the power and the leverage to help people in need and in crisis.”
Dwayne said that Paul’s daughter, Meadow, 15, was the actor’s favourite topic of conversation.
”We would talk about silly guy things, his fast cars and my pickup trucks, or we would talk about the beautiful energy of Hawaii – 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 realised that over the years.”
An autopsy which was released Wednesday, December 12, 2013 has revealed that forty year old Walker and Road both died of combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries.
Both deaths were ruled accidents and a toxicology analysis is still pending.
