Career History of Cody Walker
Walker officially began his career as an actor in 2013. His debut role was portraying the part of a character named Thomas, in a horror film called Abandoned Mine. The film was directed by Jeff Chamberlain. Co-starring alongside Walker were Spy Kids star Alexa Vega, Reiley McClendon, and Saige Thompson. The film follows a group of friends who decide to explore a creepy mine just in time for Halloween. Their visit just so happens to be on the same day that a family was murdered inside that same mine a hundred years ago. Things get weird not long after that, and they start encountering the family’s ghosts – And struggle to fight for their survival. Unfortunately, the film was critically panned.
After the death of his brother Paul, Walker became his stand-in on the set of Furious 7 along with their other brother, Caleb. Paul died in the middle of filming this movie. Because of this tragedy, Paul’s character, Brian O’Conner, had to be written off from its sequels. Since his face was also seen in the film, Walker started to gain a sizeable fanbase from The Fast & The Furious franchise’s fans. Thus he was given more acting jobs as well. Him and Caleb were there to complete their late brother’s scenes. Furious 7 was the seventh film in The Fast & The Furious film franchise. It is directed by James Wan, known for his work on The Conjuring. Furious 7 is actually the highest-grossing film in the entire franchise, and the eighth highest-grossing film of all time. Perhaps the reason why more people wanted to watch this film compared to its predecessors and sequels was because they were curious to know how they were going to end Paul’s story and say farewell to his character.
Once Furious 7 came out in theaters, Walker started to consider taking on a serious acting job. He says he wanted to do this to finish his brother’s legacy. His first film after Furious 7 was USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, which also co-starred Nicholas Cage. This film, directed by Mario Van Peebles, told the true story of the USS Indianapolis ship which sank in shark-infested waters during World War II. Once again, the film received negative reviews from critics, and the special effects used in the film were lambasted as well.
Walker is set to appear in the upcoming war drama film The Last Full Measure. He will be starring alongside Sebastian Stan, Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Ed Harris, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Irvine, and Peter Fonda.
His TV appearances include a documentary about his brother called I Am Paul Walker. This was released in 2018. He also appeared in five episodes of the show In The Rough. Walker will also be appearing in the show Shadow Wolves.

Net Worth of Cody Walker
Walker’s net worth is supposedly around $1M. The amount is lesser compared to Paul’s own net worth, which was around $25M by the time he passed away. The net worth now belongs to his daughter, Meadow. As for Walker’s own net worth, he is only starting his career as an actor, so it is understandable that the amount is lesser. Perhaps when he becomes as successful as his brother, he will end up having $25M as his net worth too.
Controversial News on The Life & Career
On November 2013, the entire Hollywood industry was shocked after Paul, and his friend Roger Rodas, died in a tragic car accident. The accident happened when they were leaving an event hosted by Paul’s charity, called Reach Out Worldwide. While driving in the streets of Santa Clarita, California, their Porsche car crashed into a lamp post made of concrete. Both Paul and Rodas died in an instant – And what’s worse was that their car caught fire. Their bodies were burned beyond recognition. Paul was still filming Furious 7 when his life was cut short. Both Meadow and Paul’s dad, Paul III, filed a lawsuit against Porsche. No alcohol or drugs were found in both men’s bodies, and there were no signs of mechanical failure in the vehicle that they drove. There was nothing wrong with the road that they were driving on either – In fact, the street where Paul and Rodas died in is popularly used for drag races (there were no drag racers involved in the accident either). It was then concluded by the authorities that the vehicle’s worn out tires, as well as the speed that they were driving on, were the main causes of the crash.
Rumors And Frequently Asked Questions
As mentioned, Walker and his wife have been married since 2015. They are very happy together with their baby daughter, and have thankfully not faced any rumors about affairs, divorce, and infidelity on both sides.
