'He was fearless': Paul Walker's brother remembers the late actor

A year and a half after Paul Walker's death, his friends and family are still mourning his loss — and his legions of fans are too.

In a new interview with People, Walker's younger brother Cody emphasized just how beloved the actor was, even by those who only met him briefly.

"Paul was a huge movie star, and I think really what I didn't realize about Paul that I've since learned, is how loved Paul was to this scale," Cody, 26, said.

He added, "Everyone that ever encountered him, he had a way of just talking to people and just making everyone — regardless of whether he just met you or not — feel like you were the most important person in the world."

Cody, a paramedic, currently serves as brand manager for Reach Out Worldwide, Paul's disaster relief organization, and said Paul's presence was evident on a recent aid trip to Nepal.

"He's totally there, there is no doubt," Cody said. "Paul would have jumped on a plane and asked questions later, and been there a day before we were there. That's who he was. He was fearless."

The late actor is still on the minds of his "Furious 7" co-stars, too.

"He was the most amazing person, and I'm constantly reminded that he is not here," Jordana Brewster, who plays his love interest in the franchise, told Bella New York last month.
