An image purportedly showing the ghost of Paul Walker on the set of “The Fast and the Furious 8” set is a digitally-manipulated fake. The doctored photo actually features other actors within the film franchise, including the late actor’s brother.
In recent days his name has come to be in the mouth of everyone .
And, very recently many people say they have seen his ghost prowling the set of the latest movie of “Fast & Furious ” movie which the authors was released in April 14, 2017.
These claims are, of course, all false. The photo actually shows one of Walker’s brothers, who served as a body double in “Fast and Furious 7” after Walker’s untimely death. The real photo, which was taken in Malibu, California in 2014, features Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson and Walker’s brother, who was then Photoshopped to appear ghostly in the fake image.
In 2013, Walker died in a car crash at the age of 40. Walker’s friend Roger Rodas, who was driving the Porsche that crashed, also died in the accident. The seventh “Fast and Furious” film went on to use scenes already filmed by Walker, in addition to using his brothers, Cody and Caleb, as body doubles.
