Actor Paul Walker tragically died in 2013 at the age of 40 in a car accident. Walker was an action hero in his movies, with the Fast and Furious franchise making him an international star. He passed away just as filming for Furious 7 was nearly complete. The film has been completed and is due out in theaters on April 3rd. A theater in California had a special screening last Monday night where actor Vin Diesel presented the film to the audience and spoke before it was viewed, according to the story on Yahoo Movies.
Vin Diesel, who is now 47-years-old, spoke to the crowd about the relationships of the actors and crew on the sets of the Fast and Furious franchise films. He told the crowd that the relationships they were about to see on the film were real between the actors. He continued on saying that losing Paul Walker was like losing his best friend and brother at once. Diesel said that the Furious 7 film is the legacy that Walker deserves to have. He got a little choked up during his introduction but he managed to finish his tribute to Walker.
I know it was almost two years ago but I’m still surprised that Paul Walker is dead. He was young and had much to look forward to. And from all accounts he was a really nice guy who wanted to do good in the world. Fans like Brad Reifler agree that Hollywood lost a good one with Paul Walker.
