Paul Walker’s Fast & Furious co-star Vin Diesel gave an emotional heartfelt tribute to the late actor at the crash site on Monday.
Walker and his close friend Roger Rodas died in a fiery car crash on Saturday after in California.
Paul Walker’s death sent shockwaves throughout Hollywood and the huge Fast & Furious franchise fan base.
On Sunday, singer/actor Tyrese Gibson broke down in tears during his visit to the crash site where fans set up a memorial.
Yesterday, police blocked off that section of the roadway so that Paul Walker’s family and close friends can pay a private tribute but hundreds of fans still turned up.
Vin Diesel spoke for the first time in public about his close friend’s passing.
“If my brother were here right now and saw all the love that you’re bringing here,” Diesel said. “If he could see for himself that all of you have showed up to show my brother love at this hard time, and that his family gets to see all of you show the love that you’ve shown Paul … It’s gonna stay with me forever. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciated him.”
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker first appeared in the Fast & Furious franchise first installment in 2001.
The crew was currently filming Fast & Furious 7. That has been placed on hold as of now. It is not clear what will happen to the franchise going forward.
