Co-stars and fans remember Paul Walker death anniversary
The co-stars of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker took to social media to mark the first anniversary of their friend’s death, who died in a car crash last year midway through the filming schedule of the seventh instalment of the popular car-themed franchise, much of which took place in Abu Dhabi (the crash was unrelated to the movie).
Vin Diesel posted a picture of his daughter, Hania Riley, sitting on Walker’s knee on the set of an unspecified movie in the series, along with the words: “A year ago today... a year of mourning... and his absence still leaves me speechless. We miss you Pablo...”
Tyrese Gibson, meanwhile, posted a pic of himself with the late actor on Twitter and promised a ‘celebration” of his friend that would be “echoed around the world.”
Michelle Rodriguez opted for a simple: “I love you Paul. Your living in the hearts of all who love you for sure. Sending mad love out to Heaven”
Elsewhere, fans of the car-mad star braved heavy rain to gather at the crash site in Valencia, California to leave flowers and tributes to their hero, with movie site TMZ reporting “hundreds” at the scene.
Walker died during a charity event when the Porsche in which he was a passenger hit a tree and burst into flames. He was 40 years old.
