Always in our hearts.
Vin Diesel opened up about his late friend Paul Walker a few days after the third anniversary of his death.
“We’ve felt the loss,” Diesel told Entertainment Tonight at Comic Con in Brazil. “The last three years have been some of the hardest of my life because of losing my brother like that.”
Diesel said being in Brazil was especially heartbreaking because the cast came there together once.
“I’d been to Brazil two times before, and both times that I’ve been here, I’ve always been with my brother, Pablo. Even if I talked on ET in Brazil or any talk show, any press, or while we were filming in the favelas, it was Pablo and me. It was a lot of tissues, and it was a hard morning for me yesterday because I was here. But the irony is the whole cast reached out, and his [18-year-old] daughter, Meadow, reached out, and all that stuff helps you get through it,” he said.
Diesel is currently working on xXX: Return of Xander Cage and said it was a good film to help him cope with Walker’s death.
“Making this movie came after a very difficult time making Furious 7, and so never in my life did I need to do a movie where I could laugh and smile and enjoy myself more than right now, more than the time I made this movie,” he said. “The irony is, right after doing this, of course, I went to do Fast 8, and Fast 8 was a very dark place and the darkest place [my character] Dom’s ever been.”
Walker died on Nov 30, 2013 0, 2013, when his friend’s Porsche Carrera GT spun out of control hitting two trees and a lamppost.
Other Fast & Furious co-stars paid tribute to Walker earlier this week.
