Meadow Walker has paid tribute to her late father, actor Paul Walker, on the eighth anniversary of his death.

The Fast and Furious star was just 40 years old when he died on November 30, 2013, in car crash - which also claimed the life of the vehicle's driver, Roger Rodas.

The actor's 23-year-old daughter took to Instagram earlier today to mark the anniversary, with the model sharing a throwback photo which was taken when she was younger.

It showed her as a toddler cuddled up with her late father, who is seen kissing his daughter on the cheek in the photo.

In the caption, Meadow - who was 15 when her father died - wrote: "'I love and miss you endlessly. Today and everyday I celebrate your life, your love. And you, my best friend."

According to the Daily Mail, the model spent most of her childhood in Hawaii with her mum Rebecca Soteros - but lived with her dad in California for some time prior to his death.

Following his death, Meadow founded a non-profit organisation - the Paul Walker Foundation - in his memory.

The organisation's website states that it is dedicated to "spontaneous acts of goodwill" that "empower young people" and "support the environment" in which they live.

Last month, Meadow married her partner Louis Thornton-Allan - with her godfather, Vin Diesel, giving her away in the ceremony, which was attended by family and friends.

Her father and Diesel starred in the Fast and Furious franchise together prior to the former's death in 2013 - which came during production of the Furious 7.

In an interview with Extra earlier this year, Diesel said that his god-daughter "takes good care" of him and said he feels "very protective."

He added: "She's the first person [...] to wish me Happy Father's Day. To see her with my children is one of the most beautiful things."
