Watch: Meadow Walker Honors Late Dad Paul Walker With Fast X Cameo

When it comes to her late dad's Fast & Furious co-stars, Meadow Walker doesn't have friends, she has family. 

And now she's joining them on the big screen. The 24-year-old, whose dad Paul Walker starred in the action franchise for nearly a decade until his 2013 death, is set to appear in the latest installment, Fast X. Meadow revealed her upcoming cameo on Instagram alongside a photo of her from a camera monitor.

"The first fast was released when I was one year old! I can't believe now I get to be up there too," she captioned the May 11 post. "I am so blessed to be able to honor my father's legacy and share this with him forever x."

And for Meadow, it really did feel like stepping onto set surrounded by family—which includes her dad's longtime co-stars like Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and Tyrese Gibson.

"I grew up on set watching my father, Vin, Jordana, Michelle, Chris and more on the monitors," the model continued. "Thanks to my dad, I was born into the fast family."

As she noted, working with the cast was working "with those who have been around to see me grow up." And her new co-stars couldn't help but show their support, with Vin commenting with a prayer hands emoji.

Meadow isn't the only member of the Walker family to play a part in the franchise as Paul's brothers Caleb and Cody Walker filled in for the late actor to help finish filming 2015's Fast & Furious 7.

In the years since Paul's death, Meadow has remained close with his Fast family. In fact, the actor even walked his goddaughter down the aisle in her 2021 wedding to Louis Thornton-Allan. And two years before Meadow confirmed her involvement with Fast X, Vin had teased whether to expect to see her on-screen. At the time, he told E! News, "I would not count anything out."

And he also took a moment to reflect on his close bond with Paul. "We started this franchise together," the Marvel star explained. "We started a brotherhood. Our brotherhood will outlast the franchise."

 Be sure to buckle up for the latest installment in the series when Fast X pulls into theaters on May 19.

"Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions," wrote Meadow on her inaugural Instagram post for The Paul Walker Foundation on September 12, 2015. "His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill. I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world."

Pool Time

Meadow posted this super cute pool pic to Instagram on July 20, 2016, to raise awareness for The Paul Walker Foundation and its mission to "do good."

On the website, a quote by film producer Brandon Birtell about his close friend is featured on the main page: "Paul was the kind of person that valued and respected others. He would go out of his way to do the simplest things from stopping to open the door for others, making sure he looked someone in the eye when they were speaking, or help someone that clearly needed to be helped." 

Flower Child

Paul's daughter posted this throwback photo of the two dancing together on September 12, 2017. She encouraged her followers to do good, writing, "In honor of my dad's birthday today, we're challenging you to DO GOOD!"

Tongue's Out!

Gleefully sticking out her tongue, little Meadow joked with her dad in this flashback photo.
