Paul Walker biography
Walker was born on Sept. 12, 1973, and raised near Los Angeles where he made his debut at age two as a diapered toddler in a commercial for Pampers. With a former model for a mother and a building contractor father, it was probably predestined that Walker would grow into a attractive, strapping young man; one who found it relatively easy to break into television after landing guest roles on "Highway to Heaven" (NBC, 1984-89), "Charles in Charge" (CBS, 1984-85; syndicated, 1987-1990) and "Growing Pains" (ABC, 1985-1992). Walker maintained steady employment with a regular role on the syndicated series "Throb" and a season on the legendary soap opera, "The Young and the Restless" (CBS, 1973- ). During the 1994-95, season Walker also enjoyed a role in the short-lived sitcom "The Boys Are Back" (CBS), starring as a teenager whose adult brothers move back into the family home.
