Stars all around the tight-knit Hollywood community are still reeling from the tragic death of actor Paul Walker, who died in a fiery car accident on Saturday. Stars of the upcoming war drama Lone Survivor shared their condolences for the late actor's family at the New York City premiere of the film.
"Mick LaSalle, who writes for the San Francisco Chronicle, he wrote a piece about Paul Walker, and he said in it that any time he was watching TV, and he was flicking the channels, and Paul was on TV, he would stay. Because he knew that Paul was an empathetic actor, and he was in good hands, and he chose films people enjoyed to watch. And I certainly felt the same way," said a somber Emile Hirsch. "The Fast And The Furious franchise, Varsity Blues, and Into The Blue, in particular, I loved. Him and Jessica Alba was great. My heart goes out to him and the families."
Actors Mark Wahlberg and Alexander Ludwig also sounded their condolences to Walker's family, including his 15-year-old daughter, and the family of Roger Rodas, the other victim of the accident and Walker's long-time friend.
"I've heard nothing but good things about [Paul]," said Ludwig. "It's very sad. It just makes you realize that life is too short, and you've got to cherish every moment, and spend it with the people you love."
