Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow attends the F9 premiere in cut-out black gown… as the late actor’s castmates pay tribute to the star
Late actor Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow Walker dazzled at the premiere of F9 on Friday.
Arriving to the red carpet at the world-famous TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, the 22-year-old – who is signed to DNA Models – looked elegant in a cut-out Yves Saint Laurent dress.
During the evening Vin Diesel paid tribute to Paul, his former castmate who he starred with in the franchise up until Paul’s death at aged 40 in November 2013.

Vin, 53, shared a throwback snap of himself with the late actor at a premiere in 2011 for Fast & Furious 5.
‘On my way to the premiere… you will be there in spirit.’ he wrote in the caption.
Vin also spoke to People at the event and noted that he missed having his past castmate around to spend time with at red carpet events.
‘Some of my best moments in life were going to the premiere and the person, the face that I have at every one of these massive premieres, it was my brother Pablo,’ he said.

The Chronicles Of Riddick actor went on to express that the two were jointly catapulted to fame with the release of the first Fast & Furious film, which he remembered with pleasure.
‘He had come from so far. We surprised the world with this small little film about brotherhood and we would dream about the future,’ he expressed.
Diesel concluded by noting that he felt the presence of his late friend at the debut of F9, in which he took comfort.
He remarked, ‘when I was thinking who I’m going to see at this premiere, I kept going back to Pablo and I know that he’s here too.’

The actor’s comments came just after franchise regular Jordana Brewster, who plays Walker’s love interest, Mia Toretto, told E! Online about her previous attraction to the late actor.
Specifically, the 41-year-old actress noted that the actor was aware that she ‘a crush on him…I never got to tell him that but I think on many levels he knew.’
The performer also spoke about how her son, Julian, made his debut as an actor in F9, and noted that her child was enthusiastic about spending time at the premiere.
The actress remarked that her son ‘has this really gorgeous suit and he’s ready…He’s really excited.’
