Vin Diesel Tributes Paul Walker On What Would Have Been His 48th Birthday


On Sunday, Paul Walker would have turned 48 years old.

Diesel, 54, paid tribute to the icon with a touching Instagram message. Diesel penned a letter to Walker expressing how much he misses him, using a photo from one of the Fast & Furious movies they both appeared in.

Paul died in a vehicle accident on November 30, 2013, when he was 40 years old.

Despite the fact that the actor died before the seventh chapter was completed, Paul Walker remained a prominent figure in the picture. The studio was able to finish the picture utilizing material that had previously been shot. For the sequences shot after Walker’s unexpected death, the studio utilized his own brothers as body doubles.


Meadow Walker, Walker’s daughter, also paid tribute to her late father with a lovely flashback photo of the two. Meadow was 15 years old when her father died.

Meadow captioned the photo, “Happy birthday daddy, I love you.” Driving into a gas pipe is said to have caused the disaster.

Diesel’s message was well-received by fans, who joined him in wishing the actor a happy birthday on social media. While many people wished the actor a happy birthday and reminisced over his memories, a few others pointed out that the actor lives on in the memory of his friends and fans. Meanwhile, Tyrese Gibson, another Fast and Furious co-star, tweeted an old behind-the-scenes footage of Paul Walker from Fast and Furious 2 and wished the late actor “Happy birthday P-Dubber love you always bro.”

After the enormous success of 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, Diesel and Walker shot to prominence. During production, they became fast friends and went on to feature in several of the popular film’s sequels.

Vin Diesel plays renowned street racer Dominic Toretto in the now-iconic racing films. Walker’s Brian O’Conner goes undercover to infiltrate Dominic’s crew in order to investigate a string of car thefts.

Paul’s character had a happy ending with his love Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster) in the film, and the franchise has continued to commemorate his legacy.
