Brother remembers, continues Paul Walker’s legacy
For Cody Walker, the death of big brother Paul Walker still doesn’t feel real.
The "Fast and Furious" star was killed in a car crash Nov. 30 at age 40. Since then, 25-year-old Cody Walker has helped complete his brother’s role in the latest "Furious" feature, and even moved from Oregon to California to work on Paul Walker’s nonprofit organization.
Nevertheless, promoting the charity and discussing his brother’s last completed movie, "Brick Mansions," proved too much, too soon for Cody Walker.
"Right now, a whole lot of time has not gone by yet," Cody Walker explained in a Thursday phone interview, his voice cracking with emotion. "It still doesn’t feel real, because sometimes, working in this industry, making films, he’d be away from his family three, four, six months at a time, you know. And my only interaction would be a phone call. So, I know it’s going to take a while."
Cody Walker and brother Caleb Walker, 36 - both of whom bear a notable resemblance to their late brother - recently worked on the set of "Fast & Furious 7," which will be released April 10, 2015.
