The Fast and Furious star wanted everything he owned to go to now 18-year-old Meadow

It’s been four years since actor Paul Walker died in a high-speed car crash.

Walker, 40, died after the car he was travelling in became engulfed in flames following a crash in November 2013.

He’s thought to have left his £18 million fortune solely to his teenage daughter, Meadow.

The now 18 year old has just settled a wrongful death lawsuit she brought against car manufacturer Porsche in 2015.

So we look at how Walker earned the fortune he left his daughter.

Walker is thought to have earned a $1 million salary from The Fast and the Furious in 2001.

After the success of the first film, his pay cheque jumped to $7 million for the sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious.

He then earned $8.5 million from Into the Blue when he starred alongside Jessical Alba in 2005.

Purchased in 2005, Walker’s house in Santa Barbara, California was estimated to be worth $1,375,500.

So despite his career being tragically cut short, Walker is thought to have left an estimated $25 million to his young daughter, according to Earn the Necklace .

The late Walker died at 40 after the car he was travelling in – a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT – careened off the road and burst into flames after the driver, Roger Rodas, lost control, running into a concrete telephone pole and two trees at a speed of between 80 and 93mph.

Meadow, 18 – his daughter with ex-girlfriend Rebecca Soteros – claimed the car had been installed with faulty seatbelts, ultimately trapping her father in the car where he burned to death.

She reached an undisclosed resolution with Porsche on October 16, according to a report by The Blast on Tuesday.


Walker was leaving a charity event for typhoon victims on Thanksgiving weekend in Valencia California when the accident happened.

His friend, Rodas, 38, was behind the wheel and also passed away in the crash and Meadow was awarded £7.69 million ($10.1 million) by the estate of Rodas in a 2016 settlement.

After the incident, both Meadow and Paul Walker’s father, Paul William Walker III sued Porsche for its part in the tragedy.

Meadow also alleged Porsche knew the Carrera GT had a history of “stability and control issues”.

The documents also claimed the seatbelt “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis.”

At the time of his death, Paul was filming Fast and the Furious 7, and his brothers Caleb and Cody served as stand-ins to finish his scenes
