Judd Lormand had only the kindest words to say after he learned of his co-star and friend Paul Walker‘s Nov. 30 car crash: but Judd explained that Paul should first and foremost be remembered for his love of and dedication to his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow Walker.

Judd and Paul really bonded on set, but they found that they had a lot in common when sharing their family stories. “What I’ll remember most was how his blue eyes lit up when we talked about our daughters,” Judd told Us Weekly after Paul’s Nov. 30 passing.
Judd was impressed with just how down-to-earth Paul was, and how easily he could talk to him about just about anything. The co-stars discussed “everything from horseback riding to road trips, from the economy to our lack of understanding of the gluten-free craze,” Judd remembered.
After his friend’s passing, Judd took to Twitter to share a touching tribute:
#RIPPaulWalker One of the kindest souls I’ve met, he had a genuine love for life that was contagious. Praying for his family.
