Vin Diesel Pays Tribute to Paul Walker

The actor broke his silence with a post on his official Facebook page. Plus, we have details on the private vigil that was held at Paul Walker's crash site last night.
Following the death of Fast & Furious 7 star Paul Walker on Saturday, several of his fellow cast members have released statements regarding the tragedy. Vin Diesel remained silent until Monday, when he posted the following photo and message on his official Facebook page.

"'To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.'

Thomas Campbell.

Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now... and the profound impact, your full life has had on it, on Us... on me...

I will always love you Brian, as the brother you were... on and off screen."


The actor also appeared at the Valencia, California crash site where Paul Walker passed away for a private vigil last night, where family members and several of the cast and crew members paid their respects. Hundreds of fans who had been gathered there throughout the day were cleared away by authorities, between 7 PM and 10 PM. Shortly after 10 PM, Vin Diesel addressed the fans from a sheriff's microphone.

"It's going to stay with me forever. I just wanted to say thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciate him."


We reported yesterday that Universal Pictures has delayed Fast & Furious 7, but it will not be abandoned. Production was on hiatus for the Thanksgiving holiday when Paul Walker died. It has not been announced when the actors will resume work, and there is no word on if the July 2014 release date will be pushed forward.

    man you give the studio/money too much credit and forget the people.
    people will always spend money for moments of joy even I others don't like the way they do it.
    you don't enjoy the FF series no more quit watching it. A quote in a movie referring to PW, a flash back can make all the difference for a viewer, so, forget about the studio and think more about the countless people this movie bring joy

    @Brizzy I'm referring to the studio. You think they actually care about this franchise?? No... They are milking it. Which is the exact reason why they went for a new director. They didn't want to give Lin any time off. They want to make a quick buck. Why shouldn't it be the last one? Did u forget vin diesel left the franchise and ran back when he seen it was making money?? Like I said respect the cast and franchise and end it

    @Brizzy and @therealGoku I agree with both of you in your own ways. But if it was me. This one would be the last one. Cause when the movies end the legacy will never die. That's a candle that can't be blowin out. So I think we need to stop making this movies. It would be odd not seeing him in this movie after the next one. Unless what they decide to do with his role in the next movie. And Vin Diesel and the rest of the cast is so hurt and heartbroken. I wishs and prays go to them.

    @therealGoku Respect the cast? They all LOVED this franchise. It was their baby, the reason they are famous and they want nothing but good things for it. Paul was in love with the project and wanted only good things for it, so the only way to respect the cast would be to continue on the legacy, not end it.

    I hope after this movie they really end it for good. Universal made enough money. Respect the cast and franchise and just end it
