Cody Walker to Attend Sydney Screenings of Fast & Furious 8

His older brother was a Hollywood heartthrob tragically killed in a car crash in November 2013.

But Cody Walker is helping to keep his brother’s legacy alive.

The 28-year-old is set to touch down in Sydney this week to raise funds for Reach Out World Wide, a charity that Paul founded before his death.

Cody’s arrival in Australia coincides with the premiere of Fast & Furious 8 – the franchise in which Paul starred and for which he is best remembered.

According to The Daily Telegraph on Monday, Cody is set to attend screenings of the film in the Sydney suburbs of Warriewood and Narellan in order to raise ‘awareness and money’ for Paul’s charity.

Reach Out World Wide is a charity designed to help accelerate relief efforts after the occurrence of natural disasters.

‘The whole idea behind Reach Out and why Paul created it was because natural disasters are occurring around us all the time,’ Cody is quoted as saying in The Telegraph.

It is not the first time Cody has been Down Under. He was in the country for the premiere of Furious 7 in 2015, the last film in which Paul starred.

After his sudden death, look-a-like Cody and another of Paul’s brothers, Caleb, stepped in to film action scenes for Paul.

Caleb previously told Entertainment Tonight that he has spoken with franchise co-star Vin Diesel about if and when they may be able to bring Paul Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner, back for a cameo.

Cody is also an actor, but it is unknown whether he may fill the shoes of Paul should the character make a comeback in a future installment.

With over 1 million Instagram followers, Cody frequently shares old photos that show the close bond he shared with his brother, while many fans comment on the their likeness.
