Paul Walker’s dad told him to quit ‘daredevil stuff’

Paul-Walker

Paul Walker’s father has revealed he made his son promise not to do any more “daredevil stuff” in their last conversation before the ‘Fast and the Furious’ actor was killed in a car crash on Saturday.

 

Paul Walker Sr. admits he was concerned about his son’s daring activities and the last time he spoke to the ‘Fast and the Furious’ actor, who was killed when the Porsche he was travelling in smashed into a pole after a charity car show in Santa Clarita, California on Saturday, he begged the 40-year-old star to be careful.

 

In an emotional interview with E! News, he said: “The last conversation we had, I sat there, I looked at him and I said, ‘You know, I love you very much. I love all of you. And we’re all very, very close. If anything was to happen to anybody in this family, it would be a rough deal.’

 

“I said, ‘Promise me, no more daredevil stuff.’ I said, ‘If in your heart, you say, I can do this, then by all means, do it. If your mind says, maybe not. Then don’t.’ I looked at him, I said, ‘Will you promise me that?’

 

“I said, ‘You know, promises are a very important thing here, Paul.’ I said, ‘Say OK,’ and he said, ‘OK.’ You know a lot of us, sometimes we make promises and get caught up in the moment and stuff like that, but I can tell I got to him. I can tell that I was very serious. Sometimes sons think of their fathers and their grandfathers as these bigger than life people.”

 

Paul’s father admitted he’s only managed to give the late star’s 15-year-old daughter Meadow “a hug and kiss” rather than have a proper conversation with her about her dad’s death, but he is preparing himself for a “real hard time” when he has to chat to the teenager.

 

He added: “She’s so sweet and beautiful … I’m gonna have a real hard time talking with Meadow. I really am. It’s gonna be a tough deal. Gonna be real rough.

 

“It’s hard to get to Meadow because she’s got so many people close to her that are loving her and we want that.”

 

Paul Sr. also admitted his son would be “embarrassed” at all the attention he was receiving following his death because he was uncomfortable with fame.

 

He explained: “It was embarrassing to him, I thought last night, ‘Paul would be so embarrassed of this.’ And I looked up at the sky and I said, ‘Well, tough luck, pal.’ “
