Angeleno Heights remembers “Fast and Furious” star

Less than a day after “Fast and Furious” actor Paul Walker died on Saturday in a fiery car crash in Santa Clarita,  a small shrine of glowing candles appeared on the sidewalk in front of  the Angeleno Heights home that appeared in the first movie of the series.  On Sunday  morning, a small group of fans held a vigil outside the East Kensington Road home, where a blue Mitsuibishi, which is similar to  one of the vehicles that Walker’s character drove in one of the films, was parked in the  driveway, according a Twitter post by Nicole Charkey. Film crews returned to the Kensington Road location late last year to film scenes for Fast and Furious 6.

More candles were later seen at the corner of Kensington and Marion Avenue across from Bob’s Market, which has also appeared in the Fast and Furious franchise as Toretto’s Market.




  1. I heart boobies… classy.

  2. Hopefully a sign of the impending death of car culture.

  3. Nothing wrong with car culture. There is something wrong with newly monied thinking laws and rules don’t apply to them including the laws of physics and good common sense. It is indeed a shame that a beautiful special Porsche was destroyed by a couple of spoiled thrill seekers.

    Thank goodness no innocent bystanders were injured or killed. Life goes on, although the taxpayer will pick up the tab for the impending and needed crowd control at the actor’s funeral which is predicted to attract a fair number of camp followers.
