In a recent exclusive interview with E! News, the late actor’s father, Paul Walker Sr., described his last conversation with his son.
“The last conversation we had, I sat there, I looked at him and I said, ‘You know, I love you, very much. I love all of you. And we’re all very close, very close. If anything was to happen to anybody in this family, it would be a rough deal,’” Paul’s father said.
“I said, ‘Promise me, no more daredevil stuff.’ I said, ‘If in your heart, you say, I can do this, then by all means, do it. If your mind says, maybe not. Then don’t.’ I looked at him, I said, ‘Will you promise me that?’”
“I said, ‘You know, promises are a very important thing here, Paul.’ I said, ‘Say OK,’ and he said, ‘OK.’ You know a lot of us, sometimes we make promises and get caught up in the moment and stuff like that, but I can tell I got to him. I can tell that I was very serious. Sometimes sons think of their fathers and their grandfathers as these bigger than life people,” he added.
Paul Walker Sr. also told E! News that he doesn’t feel like his son was always comfortable with the fame surrounding him and all the massive media attention.
“It was embarrassing to him and I thought last night, ‘Paul would be so embarrassed of this.’ And I looked up at the sky and I said, ‘Well, tough luck, pal,’” he continued.
He also mentioned that the one person he is worried about is his granddaughter, Meadow Walker.
“She’s so sweet and beautiful…I’m gonna have a real hard time talking with Meadow. I really am. It’s gonna be a tough deal. Gonna be real rough,” he said. The only thing he has been able to do so far is “give her a hug and kiss. It’s hard to get to Meadow because she’s got so many people close to her that are loving her and we want that.”
