(JTA) Israeli actress and model Gal Gadot, who has been featured in some the “Fast and the Furious” flicks, went online Sunday to share her grief over the tragic car accident that took the life of franchise star Paul Walker.
Walker, 40, was in the passenger seat of a two-seater Porsche Carerra GT Saturday when the driver lost control and slammed into a post or a tree. The car burst into flames; the driver was killed as well. At time of his death, Walker had reportedly just left a charity event to aid victims of Typhoon Haiyam for his organization Reach Out Worldwide.
“Lost a dear friend today. So sudden and tragic,” Gadot said on Twitter, alongside a photo of herself with Walker.

“I’m so sad he’s no longer with us. Can’t believe I’m actually writing this.. I’m sending my condolences to his family and his precious daughter Meadow. Rest in peace brother. We will miss you here,” she wrote.
The former Miss Israel began working with Walker when she broke into the “Fast & Furious” franchise in its fourth installment. The seventh film is currently in the works.
