Sometimes we still forget that actor Paul Walker isn’t with us any more. His extremely tragic and sudden death in 2013 felt so unreal, that it’s still kind of hard to wrap our heads around. But if there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that his loss could not have been easy for his The Fast and the Furious costars. They had been friends and colleagues for years.
And in a recent interview with People/EW, Michelle Rodriquez opened up about what the loss really meant for their team and the franchise as a whole.
And while this breaks our hearts to hear, we were also SO INSPIRED by Rodriguez’s explanation for why she and her fellow costars continue to make Fast and Furious movies, despite it being forever changed.
She concluded by saying,
Let’s take a moment to absorb how incredible that is, and how amazing it is that the actors of this franchise take the responsibility so seriously.
We’re glad something positive continues to come out of the Fast movies, even though we’ll always miss our ride or die Paul Walker, forever and always.
