Vin Diesel Reacts to Paul Walker's Death: 'I Will Always Love You'

“I wish you could see the world right now,” Paul Walker's “Fast and Furious” costar writes

After two days of silence, Paul Walker‘s “Fast and Furious” costar, Vin Diesel, has offered his thoughts on the actor's death, reflecting, “I will always love you.”

Diesel delivered his message via his Facebook page on Monday, with a caption attached to a photo of himself and Walker, who died on Saturday in a fiery car wreck. Diesel referred to Walker as both “Pablo” and “Brian,” the latter a reference to Walker's “Fast and Furious” character, Brian O'Conner.

“Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now… and the profound impact, your full life has had on it, on Us… on me,” Diesel wrote. “I will always love you Brian, as the brother you were… on and off screen.”

Diesel began his tribute with a quote from Thomas Campbell, “To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.”

Though Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and other “Fast” co-stars expressed their grief on social media shortly after Walker's death, Diesel remained silent for more than two days. Several media outlets picked up on an Instagram account purporting to be Diesel — TheWrap was not among them — but that account turned out to be fake.

Walker died on Saturday in Valencia in Southern California, following a charity event. He was the passenger in a Porsche driven by his friend and  business partner, Roger Rodas. Though the area in which he died has been cited as a popular racing spot, law enforcement has largely ruled out racing as a cause of the crash, and is currently looking at the investigation as a solo vehicle crash with speed as a factor.

    The world does not stop spinning and the clock will never stop ticking. Paul will be missed It was his time and he is needed elsewhere in the grand design but I feel the show must go on because we are still here and among the living and paul would want us to move forward and into the future with the Fast and furious franchise. Live life with little gravity.

  • Trah

    His death will save lives. I'll think twice when the urge of speeding succumbs me. I'll remember, how he died and how he lived.

  • David b.

    The bible mentions the hope of resurrection, once a person passes, his sins are atoned for. This i know, because of OUR LORD, JESUS CHRIST.
    MAY PAULS FAMILY HAVE PEACE AND HOPE. FOR GOD CAN NOT LIE.

    So sad to think about all the people, both well known and otherwise, that perish due to speeding. On the one hand you could easily argue that they deserved it, they shouldnt have been going that fast or being that reckless. But at the end of the day they have paid the ultimate price, and in my oppionion this should be enough for people just to leave well alone.

    RIP Paul, while the world may carry on spinning those who have left thier mark will not be forgotten.
