Vin Diesel has issued his first statement in response to the death of his friend and “Fast & Furious” co-star Paul Walker, who was killed over the weekend in a car accident.
“Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now,” Diesel wrote on his Facebook page, “and the profound impact, your full life has had on it, on Us… on me.”
“I will always love you Brian,” he added, referring to Walker’s character in the “Fast” franchise, “as the brother you were on and offscreen.”
Diesel was reported to have made comments late Saturday night on Instagram and Twitter but those accounts were fake.
Walker and Diesel were in the midst of shooting the seventh installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise.
