    Tributes have been pouring in online on what would have been Paul Walker's 45th birthday. Despite being a versatile actor, he is still remembered by many as the star of the Fast and Furious franchise.

    On Wednesday, famed American actor Paul Walker would have celebrated his 45th birthday. Social media have been flooded with birthday messages to the Fast and Furious star; five years after his tragic death, Paul Walker's legacy still remains a major influence on people, who call him their "childhood idol."

    Paul Walker was a gifted actor, best known for starring as Brian O'Connor in the Fast and Furious franchise. Teen hits Varsity Blues (1999), She's All That (1999) and The Skulls (2000) marked the start of his rise to fame, but he has also picked up a wide range of roles in war movies and thrillers. The late star passed away at the age of 40, after a horrific car crash in Valencia, California in November 2013.
