Santa Clarita, California (CNN) -- Actor Paul Walker, who shot to fame as star of the high-octane street racing franchise "Fast & Furious," died in a fiery car crash in Southern California on November 30th. He was 40.
Day of his death : One the last photos taken of James Dean at a gas station with his spider Porsche. Nearly 60 years later, actor Paul Walker's death in a horrific car crash so closely mirrors that of Dean's, it is almost eerie.
Paul Walker is being remembered for his compassion and big heart once again. The 40-year-old actor, who died in a tragic car accident Saturday, was reportedly the man behind a generous gift to a soldier and his bride-to-be during the holidays several years ago.
