Vin Diesel gave a heartbreaking tribute to Paul Walker at the “Fate of the Furious” premiere

In the years since Paul Walker’s death, we’ve missed seeing his face light up the screen. But whatever grief we’re feeling, it doesn’t compare to what his friends are going through. Vin Diesel paid tribute to Paul Walker at the Fate of the Furious premiere in NYC, and get ready to feel all the emotions. He refers to Walker by his special nickname  —”Pablo” — and his words speak to the strength of their friendship and collaboration.

"We have a lot of great talent in this movie. But there would be no Dwayne Johnson, who we love, there would be no Jason Statham, who we love, there would be no Charlize [Theron], who we love, there would be no Scott Eastwood, who we love, there would be no Kurt Russell, who we love, if it wasn’t for the decades of work that my brother Pablo put into this franchise. When you see this movie, know that this is from love," Diesel said.

As wrong as it feels to experience a Fast and the Furious movie without Walker, it’s clear that the franchise has continued to build upon the foundation he created — and we can’t wait to see how the story unfolds.

Miss you, Paul. Always!
