Hard road to the top
Years of work paid off for Paul Walker, but it had been hard work getting to the position he had at the time of his death. As a struggling actor, he had roles in TV shows including Tony Danza sitcom Who's The Boss? and US soap, The Young and the Restless before he broke into films.
Walker is seen here with co-stars Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez as the cast of "Fast & Furious" present the award for breakthrough performance at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday April 14, 2013.
