Brian O'Conner (also known as Brian Earl Spilner) is a fictional character and the main protagonist of The Fast and the Furious film series. He is initially portrayed as a police officer, who is later discharged from the LAPD for aiding and abetting Dominic Toretto from the film The Fast and the Furious. He is portrayed by Paul Walker and appears in all films in the series except The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Brian grew up in Barstow, California along with childhood friend Roman Pearce (played by Tyrese Gibson in 2 Fast 2 Furious). It was while growing up with him that he first got into cars and street racing (and other sorts of trouble). When Brian was only two months out of the Police Academy, his friend Roman Pearce was caught in a garage with eight stolen vehicles. Roman is later sent to jail then afterwards is on probation with an ankle monitor. He blamed Brian for the arrest although he had no knowledge of what had happened in the carjacking incident, but more as a form of betrayal as Brian had joined forces with the police force, an organization he opposed. During the events of the first film, Brian is working as an undercover detective with the LAPD.
