The tragic death of actor Paul Walker lingers over the latest installment in the hugely successful Fast & Furious franchise that made Paul a household name. So when Vin Diesel stopped by to address the audience at an early screening of the film, he was understandably emotional.
"This was a labor of love," says Vin. "It was in some ways the hardest movie I ever had to do."
Clearly, Paul was more than a co-star to the 47-year old actor.
"When the tragedy happened," tells Vin, "I lost my best friend. I lost my brother."
He then gets audibly choked up when a fan yells out, "You got family here, Vin!"
Here's the emotional video.
Furious 7 will hit theaters April 3.
It can't be said enough how many lives Paul Walker touched. His father sat down with ET to share touching memories of his late son. Watch the interview below.
