Paul was born in California, in a family of Sheryl and Paul Walker III. His mother was a former fashion model, while his father worked as a sewer contractor. Their ancestors descended from Germany, England and Ireland. Paul is the first child born to the Walkers and has four siblings. Although the family’s income was quite modest and neither Sheryl, nor her husband earned a fortune comparable to Paul Walker net worth, the large family did not suffer from deprivation.
His professional career on television, which eventually boosted Paul Walker net worth to millions of dollars, started when he was still a toddler, appearing on Pampers’ commercial. This small role was followed by some modeling jobs. At the age 12 Walker started acting in television shows. During this early period of his career Paul has featured in such TV series as Who Is the Boss?, Highway to Heaven, Touched by the Angel and The Young and the Restless. Walker made his movie debut with 1986’s film Monster in the Closet. Following this, the future millionaire landed supporting roles in Varsity Blues, She’s All That, Pleasantville and The Skulls.
Paul Walker net worth growth shifted to the higher gear in the early 2000s, when he was cast for the major role in The Fast and the Furious, action film series centered on illegal street racing. Although the movie received mixed critical evaluations, its commercial success was undisputable: the movie made over $40 million during the opening weekend and went on to raise another $160 million. Such revenues encouraged the creation of six sequels: 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five and two more, which are still under creation. Walker has also featured in a couple of short films, developing the same story line: Turbo-Charged Prelude and Los Bandoleros.
