Actor Paul Walker’s untimely demise Saturday shocked “Fast & Furious” film fans worldwide, but according to a newly leaked clip from his coming film, “Fast & Furious 7,” he may have predicted his own death.
In the clip, obtained by Clipesrelevantes on YouTube, Walker can be seen portraying his longtime “Fast & Furious” character, cop turned illegal street racer Brian O’Conner, discussing a coming funeral. The scene, which [spoiler alert] features the funeral of the film franchise's former star Han (played by Sung Kang), shows the crew, including Vin Diesel, Chris “Ludacris" Bridges, Tyrese Gibson and Walker, all in character mourning their friend, who passed away at the conclusion of the sixth film.
When the group agrees they’re being “hunted” down by their enemy Ian Shaw (played by action star Jason Statham), Gibson's character requests they suffer “no more funerals.” Walker’s character can be heard replying, “just one more,” followed by the promise to bring down Shaw, saying the only burial will be his.
Fans have reacted strongly to the clip, with most calling Walker’s dialogue “sad.” “This is creepy, crazy and so SAD,” said Twitter user @jennymurphyy Tuesday. “How awk on the news they show a clip of fast&furiou7that paul walkers at a funeral and the guy say no more and then paul walker says 1 more,” added Twitter user @pwellsswagg Tuesday.
On Saturday, a representative confirmed on Walker’s official Facebook page that he passed away at the age of 40 following a car accident in Santa Clarita, Calif. The actor, who was in town to attend a Reach Out Worldwide charity event, died alongside his longtime friend, professional racer Roger Rodas. According to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, the vehicle, a 2005 Porsche Carrera, was engulfed in flames when help arrived on the scene.
According to the latest report from TMZ, close family and friends of the actor gathered at the crash site Monday night in a private memorial. Walker’s longtime “Fast and Furious” co-star, Diesel, reportedly also made an appearance after the event, calling the star “an angel.” “To show the love that you have shown Paul… It’s gonna stay with me forever,” Diesel told the crowd.
