Vin Diesel spoke out for the first time since the tragic death of his ‘Fast and Furious’ co-star Paul Walker. Speaking of Walker, Diesel called him his “brother” and thanked the fans for all the support during these tough times. Diesel and other co-star Tyrese visited the crash site after the accident. Diesel used a police megaphone to express his gratitude to the crowd that had gathered there.
Earlier this week, Diesel posted a message of Facebook with a picture of him and Walker. The caption said, “To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die,” he wrote, quoting the poet Thomas Campbell. “Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now … and the profound impact, your full life has had on it, on Us … on me … I will always love you Brian, as the brother you were … on and off screen.”
Diesel and Walker have been co-stars in the ‘Fast and Furious’ movie franchise since 2001. They were on break from shooting the 7th installment of the series when Walker died in a car accident. The fate of the film is yet to be decided. There is a chance the movie may be scrapped without Walker.
