Vin Diesel and Paul Walker were not just the co-stars, they shared a bond as close as brothers. Diesel had never imagined that there will come a time, when Paul wouldn’t be a part of the franchise and that he would be doing a film without him.
The news of Paul Walker’s death in a fierce car accident had shocked the entire world, including Vin Diesel, who has often admitted that it was tough to shoot the movie without him, and that he missed him at almost every moment.
In a radio show recently, Diesel once again talked about his beloved friend who he misses at all times, and it is then when he confessed about the heartbreaking conversation he had with Paul Walker’s mother after the accident took place.
The first thing that Cheryl Walker told Vin, when he flew to Atlanta to meet her on the day the accident took place, was – Sorry.
“The day after the tragedy, for me to fly from Atlanta that night and to show up at his mother’s house and for me to say to his mother, ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry,’ and for his mother to say to me ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry’ — I said, ‘Why? Why are you saying sorry to me?’ And she said, ‘Because you lost your other half.”
Ask Diesel how much he misses Paul, and he says – every second!
“There wasn’t a day, there wasn’t a scene, there wasn’t a second where I didn’t have Paul with me in the making of this movie. It’s not making the movie without Paul, it’s, ‘What’s life like? What’s living like without Paul?”
We know the Fast and the Furious franchise will never be the same without Paul Walker, but like Paul’s last tweet read, “Will you be ready?”
