What Ashlie Said Her Two Brothers Filling In The Role Of Her Late Brother
After Paul’s demise amidst the shooting of the Furious Seven, his look-alike brothers, Caleb and Cody served as his substitutes so that the film could finish its production.
On her brothers filling in the role of Paul, Ashlie said after the production of the film, Caleb, a restaurant owner, and Cody, a paramedic, would get back to their regular jobs.
“They’re not actors. This is just temporary,”
the Californian resident explained. She added how her siblings just wanted to help complete the film because of the many people liking it. She said it was a natural decision.
The Glendale native, however, added diving into their brother’s world was a big challenge, emotionally and logistically for Caleb and Cody as well as for the Whole Walker family.
Ashlie said her family’s faith in the Mormon practice helped them to come to terms with Paul’s death.
How Ashlie Walker Defended Her Brother, Paul, Even After His Death
Shortly after the tragic death of the Joy Ride star, there were some who believed he and Rodas, his friend, and the driver were actually racing through the Santa Clarita neighborhood.
It was Ashlie who afterward came and said it was a complete lie. She angrily denied the Into The Sea – the star was drag racing before his fiery death. The third child of Paul Walker Sr. added how the ‘irresponsible’ rumors’ at the time were making her family’s grief worse and more painful.
Some members of the Police said they received eyewitness statements saying the sportscar Paul and their friend were ‘traveling alone at a high rate of speed.’
As per the locals, the Porsche slammed into a light pole and burst into flames. The Police in Los Angeles later ultimately rebutted a so-called “second car” theory in the tragic death of Ashlie’s brother.
How Her Brother Actually Died
Walker and his friend and fellow fast-car enthusiast Roger Rodas died on Hercules Street in Valencia, a neighborhood of Santa Clarita, California when the latter’s 2005 Porsche Carrera GT smashed into a light pole and tree, then exploded in flames.
Walker reportedly was the passenger. He and Rodas thought of taking a brief drive away from a charity fundraiser and toy drive at Rodas’ custom car shop in Valencia, about 50 kilometers northwest of Los Angeles.
The accident took place on Saturday afternoon November 13, 2013, at a street that forms an approximately 1.6-kilometer loop amid industrial office parks.
The hills edge the road and it lies relatively distant from traffic. The route is allegedly a well-known hot spot for street racers.
The Takers star and his ride partner were pronounced dead at the scene. Rodas died after suffering multiple trauma while Walker lost his life from the combined effects of trauma and burns.
The survivors include Paul’s daughter Meadow, parents Paul Sr. and Cheryl, and siblings Ashley, Aimie, Caleb, and Cody.
Ashlie And Her Family Members Helped Make Her Late Brother’s Documentary
In 2018, Paul’s brothers, Caleb, and Cody produced a documentary narrating the life of their deceased brother. The title is, I Am Paul Walker.
The video biography features footage of the actor, dating back to his childhood, as well as excerpts from interviews with Walker’s friends and family.
In the documentary, Ashlie, one of the persons to have remembered Paul the most, says,
“He liked to go fast. As soon as I was old enough to hang on tight, I was on the back of his big wheel with him going for the ride of my life.”
