Walker's reps confirmed his death in a statement on his official Facebook page.

"It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide," they wrote. "He was a passenger in a friend's car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences."

Other friends, co-stars and celebs expressed their grief on Instagram and Twitter.

"Your humble spirit was felt from the start, wherever you blessed your presence you always left a mark, we were like brothers & our birthdays are only 1 day apart, now You will forever hold a place in all of our hearts @paulwalker legacy will live on forever. R.I.P.," Ludacris wrote.

"My heart is hurting so bad no one can make me believe this is real Father God I pray that you send clarity over this cause I just don't understand My heart hurts it's broken no one can convince me that this is real," wrote Tyrese. "Prayer warriors please pray real hard for his only child, his daughter and family...#HeartOfAnAngel13YrsFamilyForeverWeJustCelebreatedYour40thBirthday..... My God... My God... I can't believe I'm writing this."

"At least I got to say I love you," Tyrese continued. "#OurLastExchange but our laughs and moments will live forever#ThisIsWorstThanMyWorstNightmare#GodiLoveYouAndiwillneverquestionYou.... But this I just don't understand #PaulForeverFamily#MyHeartHurtsSoBad please pray for his daughter and family..."

Dwayne Johnson sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about his co-star and friend.

"He was motivated by work that allowed him to take care of his family, number one, and that also allowed him the power and the leverage to help people in need and in crisis," The Rock told the mag.

"We would talk about silly guy things, his fast cars and my pickup trucks, or we would talk about the beautiful energy of Hawaii — but it always ultimately came back to family. And very specifically the beautiful and important bond between a father and his daughter, and how we both realized that over the years."

You love more which you have lost.You adore more which you don't have or get.Sun is shining brighter after a hard rain.You feel more when you don't have nothing.Try it, eat nothing a day or more, everthing will taste better.How can you know about hunger, if you never had hunger?! Don't smell nothing, you will love all scents afterwards.Don't talk, don't listen for a while, try to be on your own for a while, in darkness, without food, warm water, without family, without books, light, music, movies, without nothing.Try it for a while and afterwards you will be hopefully thankful and glad about you have and are but most of the people are taking for granted every day untill they maybe lose it! Be thankful for your life, your health, your chances, some people out there are poor of em all.

Why do always good ones die too young?! I always missed a family like in Too fast and furious.Paul was a real good actor and I am sure, he was also a good father, friend, son, brother, colleague, boyfriend, husband and so on! He had something in his eyes, which was natural and really lovely! No matter, how much fame and money, he had reached in his career, I think he lived more for his family and loved them at first and nothing in the world was more from worth than his family! In his eyes was so much love and honesty! I truly feel for his family and friends.God hopefully take good care of him! I hope, if Paul sees my father in heaven, he tells him, that I miss him although I have never had known him !! Love! Nina from Germany, a little piece and part of a great universe, greater than I could ever be!

I'm very sad, I can hardly believe, Paul Walker is dead! My father also died in a car accident when he was only 42 and me only seven days, so I don't know him.The accident happened because of sone stupid drunk guys. My mother was taken his husband, alone with four children. Us was taken Mom and Dad at the same time! I'm feeling for Meadow and I know, no money in this world, no fame, no beauty, no youth, no nothing, can bring back the love of the ones, who gave us life! Who shows us love unless our parents?
