Dec. 1st, 2013

I was having a hard enough time coping with the news of the death of Lewis Collins on Thursday, but then to hear the news about Paul Walker dying in a car crash is almost too much to bear.

For a lot of years, I lived, breathed, ate, and slept The Fast and the Furious. When they got the band back together for the fourth movie, I was happier than I had been in years and years. These movies were everything to me. And in the early days, I was one of the few people making fannish vids for the first movie, so I spent a lot of time with Brian O'Conner, memorizing scenes, clipping, working with his image. I always thought he gave the movies heart.

He seemed like such a nice guy, and he was so excited about the eighth movie being greenlit. I am so so sad.

Oh God I'm just sick. The success of the franchise really meant a lot to me; it seemed like a triumph of the people over Hollywood stupidity, of the way that things ought to be. I'm so sad.

You were the first person I thought of when I read the news. I'm very sorry.

I was just stunned to hear it. Not only did I have massive love for the F&F series, but I'd seen a lot of his other movies and enjoyed them.

There's that first, slow motion shot if him in Pleasantville where he turns and smiles that was so breathtaking, but all the better because of the personality in his eyes.

Thought about you last night when we heard -- *sends hugs*

It's just terrible. It's too fucking much.
