American actor Paul Walker desperately wants his daughter MEADOW to become a musician - and not an actress.

THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS star is keen to steer the seven-year-old away from the brutal experience of trying to make a living as an actor.

He explains, "She's my little Sarah Mclachlan meets Edie Brickell. That's what I'm hoping for. She likes more of the singing and playing guitar.

"Her hands are still a little bit too small (to play the guitar). She's loves music, that's where it's really at. I'm kind of planting the seed, working it."
