It has been revealed how the late actor Paul Walker came close to quitting acting and taking a new career path, before being talked out of it and convinced that acting was the best thing for him to do. Paul spent some time out in the ocean, where he was observing great white sharks, and he was considering giving up acting to study marine biology.
Paul Walker has always been into the subject and he made a television documentary back in 2010 titled Shark Men, which saw him spend a week with Dr. Michael Domeier, where he was catching and tagging great white sharks. Michael has now opened up about spending time with Paul, revealing how the actor asked him for advice about quitting acting and studying marine biology.
Domeier told Entertainment Weekly, "He would call me in the middle of the night and say, 'Hey, I want to quit acting. I want to go back to school. Can you help me?' And I'd talk him off the ledge and go, 'Paul, that's a really bad idea. You can have much more of an influence on these topics as a celebrity. Let's work together. I can help you, give you talking points'... So we kept in touch over the years, even after we both stopped working on Shark Men. He kept calling me: 'Hey, let's do something again. When can I come with you again?"
Paul Walker and Michael Domeier teamed up again to make the documentary Spawn of Jaws, before then going on to start work on the sequel Spawn of Jaws: The Birth, three weeks before Paul died in a car crash. Michael decided to continue with the project, which aired in America on Wednesday night.
