Paul Walker's daughter and friend Vin Diesel have both paid tribute to the late actor online for his birthday yesterday.

The Fast and Furious actor would have been 44 on Wednesday (local time). He died in a car accident in 2013.

Walker's 17-year-old daughter shared a throwback post on Instagram of the pair dancing when she was a toddler, announcing that it was the 'Paul Walker Foundation 'Do Good Challenge'.

She encouraged her followers to do a random act of kindness and nominate others to do the same.

"In honour of my dad's birthday today, we're challenging you to DO GOOD!" she wrote. "Share a video or photo of your random act of kindness and nominate 4 people to join the challenge! Be sure to tag the foundation as well as hashtag #PWFdogoodchallenge, so we can check out all of your posts!"

She tagged in Walker's old co-star and close friend Vin Diesel, who aalso paid tribute to Walker on Instagram. Diesel wrote how "proud" he and the Fast and Furious cast were of Walker's family. 

"Happy birthday Pablo" Diesel wrote, referencing Walker's old on-set nickname.

"You have and are still changing the world. Your love lives through all whom have had the great fortune to know you. Meadow graduated this summer... made us all so proud. She is even building a foundation in your name to help the world. Would you believe Cody is in Houston continuing the work you were so passionate about... Remember when we were in Haiti and you asked me what the name should be... and now @reachoutww is realizing the dream. All the angels miss you... I miss you."
