You knew him as one of the stars of Fast and Furious.
In fact, he was working on the latest Fast and Furious film at the time of his death earlier this afternoon. And sadly, it was a violent, fiery death.
We're talking about Paul Walker who died in a car crash north of Los Angeles. He was 40 years old.
