Paul Walker’s Daughter Meadow Will “Honor” Her Father’s Legacy With ‘Fast X’ Cameo

Fans of The Fast and The Furious franchise will surely feel the bittersweetness of Meadow Walker’s cameo in Fast X. Why Bittersweet? Well, of course we all miss Paul Walker, it will be beautiful to see his daughter step into the franchise that made him a household name, and solidified a cast as found family in Hollywood.

Meadow Walker took to Instagram on Thursday to tease a cameo in Universal’s forthcoming action franchise installment of Fast X, in tribute to her late father, Paul Walker.


“The first Fast was released when I was one year old! I grew up on set watching my father, Vin (Diesel), Jordana (Brewster), Michelle (Rodriguez), (Ludacris) and more on the monitors,” said Walker in a message accompanying a shot of her in Fast X. “Thanks to my dad, I was born into the fast family. I can’t believe now I get to be up there too. With those who have been around to see me grow up.”

Meadow Walker went on to thank the film’s director Louis Leterrier for his “kindness, patience and support,” adding, “it feels like you’ve been part of the family since we started, I’m happy it’s just the beginning.” She subsequently thanked producer Brandon Birtell — “dad’s best friend who is now my best friend,” writing, “This wouldn’t have been possible without you.

The message was met with shows of support from franchise stars Vin Diesel and Scott Eastwood, among many others. “He was so proud of you!!!!” wrote Eastwood. “He is smiling about this right now!!”

Marking the penultimate installment in the decades-long action franchise is Fast X, which hits theaters on May 19th. The new film picks up with globe-trotting street racer Dominic Toretto (Diesel) and his crew, as they look to fend off the pair of big bads that are out for them — the cyberterrorist Cipher (Charlize Theron) and her mysterious cohort, Dante (Jason Momoa) — with the help of a new friend named Tess (Brie Larson). Leterrier is staying on as director for the final installment of Fast & Furious, which is expected to hit theaters in 2025.
