Tributes: The Stars We've Lost

From Maya Angelou to Philip Seymour Hoffman to Paul Walker, we remember the personalities who've left us

PAUL WALKER

When the first Fast & Furious film arrived in theaters in 2001, it was the blue-eyed star's portrayal of undercover police officer Brian O'Conner that helped drive the franchise to blockbuster success. More than a decade later, Walker, 40, was working on the seventh installment of the street-racing action series before he died Nov. 30 when a car he was in crashed and exploded in Santa Clarita, Calif. "Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time," read a post on his official Facebook page.
