Star aimed to put on brakes

The Star Early Edition - - TONIGHT TELEVISION -

PAUL Walker was ready to quit Hol­ly­wood be­fore he died.

The Fast & Fu­ri­ous ac­tor, who died in a car ac­ci­dent last Novem­ber, was un­happy about his busy film­ing sched­ule be­cause he wanted to spend more time with his 16-year-old daugh­ter Meadow, who moved in with him in 2011.

The ac­tor’s fa­ther, Paul snr, said: “Paul was plan­ning on tak­ing a break from movies to spend more time with Meadow.

“He was so proud of her… and Paul wanted to be there for her as she grew up. In fact, he would have swapped his Hol­ly­wood fame for the quiet life with Meadow. Paul wasn’t big on fame and pre­ferred to live mod­estly. “But he signed on for the

Agent 47 movie about a hit­man, and it was al­ready agreed that if it was suc­cess­ful there would be three fur­ther movies made.” –
