The 40-year-old star had made about two dozen movies before his tragic demise in a fiery car crash on Saturday but, despite his leading man looks, Walker was almost always part of an ensemble cast.
Off camera, Walker never seemed to seek the spotlight and managed to stay out of the tabloids.

He was best known for playing Brian O’Conner in all but one of the Fast & Furious movies (he skipped the third one, 2006’s Tokyo Drift).
At the time of his death, Walker was working on Fast & Furious 7.
He starred in comedies (1999’s She’s All That), thrillers (2001’s Joy Ride) and action flicks (2006’s Running Scared).
But outside of the Fast & Furious franchise, Walker never had a hugely successful movie. His top-grossing non-F&F release was 2006’s Eight Below, which earned $120 million worldwide.
Walker made several films in Canada: Eight Below in B.C., 2000’s The Skulls in Toronto and 2004’s Noel in Montreal. He was in Montreal this past June to film scenes for Brick Mansions.
