8 Things to know about Cody Walker, Paul Walker's brother

Sarah grew up in Monterey, CA and now lives in Los Angeles. When she's not writing, you can find her enjoying a good book, fine wine, sunflowers and long walks on the beach.

You may know Cody Walker as 'Paul Walker's brother,' but that's about to change

We know that most of the world still isn't over Paul Walker's tragic death.

It caught everyone off guard and left fans devastated, wondering who would fill the void in Furious 7, which Paul was still filming when he died. Ultimately, his brothers Cody and Caleb stepped in to help finish the movie, an act that was therapeutic for fans, everyone on set and, undoubtedly, Cody and Caleb themselves.

The two brothers flourished on the Furious 7 set, and now Cody is focused on creating an acting career of his own. He's currently filming USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage alongside Nicholas Cage and Tom Sizemore and has been sharing photos of the experience.

1. Still active with Reach Out WorldWide

After Paul's death, Cody dedicated himself to keeping his brother's legacy alive through the charity he ran, Reach Out WorldWide. "As Paul would say, 'When you put good will out there, it's amazing what can be accomplished.' We can all make a difference in this world, and I am honored to join the ROWW team in fulfilling my brother's legacy and ensure that the good my brother did lives on," Cody said.

Cody may be pursuing an acting career, but he still helps run ROWW and often posts about it on social media.

2. He's got a sense of humor

Judging by Cody's posts on Instagram, we're seriously thinking the guy should consider taking his acting career down the comedy path.
