Los Angeles: Paul Walker was as much a fan of daredevilry off-screen as he was in his on-screen avatars. His father was scared and asked him to give up doing stunts while the late actor was shooting for his last film 'Brick Mansions'.

The 40-year-old actor died in a car accident last November. He rose to fame with his breakthrough roles in the "Fast & Furious" franchise.
During the shooting of "Brick Mansions", in which he'll be seen playing an undercover cop, his father had warned him against indulging in stunts which could be fatal.
"The last conversation we had, I sat there, I looked at him and I said, 'Promise me, no more daredevil stuff.' I said, 'If in your heart, you say, I can do this, then by all means, do it. If your mind says, maybe not. Then don't.' I looked at him, I said, 'Will you promise me that'," Walkers' father recalled in a statement.
A while after this conversation, the actor died in a car accident.
