Walker's best known role was undoubtedly that of police officer Brian O'Conner in the Fast & Furious
franchise. The actor was propelled to worldwide prominence when he appeared as the undercover agent in 2001's The Fast and The Furious
- which grossed over $200 million on a $38 million budget - before reprising the role in all but one of the five sequels.
At the time of his death, Walker was working on the seventh instalment of the series, Fast & Furious 7
, which is scheduled for release next year.
An avid supporter of the franchise, Walker recently said that there would be a "guaranteed" eighth Fast & Furious film
, as well as hinting that a 9th and 10th could be in the pipeline if it remained successful.
