Paul Walker’s Fast & Furious Co-Stars Pay Tribute To Him On Anniversary Of His Death
It’s been three years since Paul Walker tragically died in a single-car accident, and his Fast and Furious family is still coping with the loss of their friend and brother.
On the third anniversary of Walker’s death Wednesday (November 30), Fast cast members old and new took to social media to remember Walker. Vin Diesel, who paid a touching (and unforgettable) tribute to his “brother Pablo” at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards by singing Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s “See You Again,” honoured his late co-star with a simple, yet moving, act: He changed his Facebook cover photo with bookend images of himself and Walker.
Meanwhile, Jordana Brewster, who played Walker’s on-screen love Mia Toretto throughout the Fast and Furious franchise, tweeted, “I miss you and I love you every single day,” along with a photo of herself and Walker at a premiere.

Ludacris shared a photo of the actor in character as Brian O’Conner with the words, “Always in our hearts.” The heartfelt caption read: “Gone but never forgotten. #love.”
Fast 8 newcomer Scott Eastwood also honoured Walker, whom he called one of his closest friends, with a photo from their 2006 film, Flags of Our Fathers. “I love this pic because it sums up how you made people feel,” Eastwood wrote on Instagram. “You taught me so much. Lessons that I find myself passing on to people in my life now. Thanks for all the laughs big bro.”
It’s OK to cry at Tyrese Gibson’s heartbreaking tribute. He shared a video of himself and his “favorite white man” Walker along with a montage of photos and clips of the late star.
“This week is always rough for those of us who really knew him personally,” Gibson he wrote in a lengthy and sob-inducing post on his Instagram. “Paul treated everyone with the upmost respect and went out of his way to make everyone feel like they mattered … I love and I miss you dearly.”
