VIN DIESEL HAS PAID tribute to his late Fast and Furious co-star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash last weekend.

The 40-year-old actor was killed instantly when the Porsche he was travelling in crashed northwest of Los Angeles on Saturday.

In a short but heartfelt Facebook post, Diesel said Walker was like a brother “on screen and off screen”.

He refers to Walker as Brian, the character he played in the Fast and Furious film series.

Other co-stars of the late actor have also paid tribute to him, including Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson of the Fast and Furious franchise.



Walker had been filming Fast and Furious 7 at the time of his death, and Universal Studios executives are said to be deciding on how to proceed with the film in a manner that would be “respectful” to the late actor.
