The late action star Paul Walker has left his fortune, estimated at $25 million to his only child, 15-year-old Meadow, according to his will.
The Fast And Furious star’s will and testament was filed on January 28 in Santa Barbara, California and names his father executor of the estate and his mother as guardian of his only child.
Records indicate the will was prepared in 2001, the same year that Paul Walker started filming the multi-million dollar race car franchise.
Walker was killed in a single car crash on November 30, 2013, when the specialty Porsche his friend and business partner Roger Rodas was driving, crashed and exploded into flames near Los Angeles.
At the time of the tragic accident Paul Walker was attending a charity event for his foundation Reach Out Worldwide.

The Fast And Furious franchise — which will release its seventh installment next year — will continue to generate royalties for the young girl and she can expect approximately $8 million for her father’s work in the film.
The studio announced that it will retire the late actor’s character, Brian O’Conner and director James Wan, writer Chris Morgan, and Universal’s Jeffrey Kirschenbaum are working hard to adjust the screenplay. The film will be completed with reshoots, new scenes, and existing footage of Walker.
When Paul Walker died, the production was in the middle of a Thanksgiving break and almost half of the shoot had been finished.
Following the tragic events, the studio put the production — one of the most successful in Universal history — on hold to give time for cast and crew members to grieve and allow producers time to decide how to proceed.
There were rumors that one of Paul Walker’s brothers, Cody, would take over the last scenes needed to complete the film, but that has not been confirmed by Universal.
The website TMZ obtained a copy of the will, which does not mention Meadow’s mother Rebecca Soteros, who lives in Hawaii or his longtime girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell.
Meadow used to live with her mother in Hawaii, but moved to Los Angeles to be closer to Paul Walker about three years ago. It is reported the girl wants to stay in Southern California and her mother is okay with that decision.
