Paul Walker's tragic passing last November continues to be a loss deeply felt by those close to him. Months after the loss of the promising actor most widely know for his roles in the Fast & Furious franchise, Walker's family and friends continue to speak and out and pay tribute to his life and accomplishments, many still in shock and disbelief over the sudden nature of his passing. On Friday, Walker's Fast & Furious costar Vin Diesel appeared on Live With Kelly And Michael to promote Guardians Of The Galaxy, and took the opportunity to share his thought on the loss of his friend. Diesel admits that mourning the loss of Walker has been "one of the darker moments in this, in my journey."
"It's a heavy thing", Diesel continues as he elaborates on the emotional challenges of having to complete production on Fast & Furious 7 following Walker's death. "I grew up in the bouncer world, and we lost people while we were bouncing. But the brotherhood in Paul Walker was something completely different. It was someone that we ... we grew up in the business together, and we became famous together, and we represented the biggest franchise together. He was my partner, and it’s a strange thing to ... I've been acting all my life and they don't teach you in acting, how to mourn someone and simultaneously pretend they're in a scene with you."
Despite Walker's untimely death, his and Diesel's perfect partnership lives on in some great moments from their friendship:
That time a former club bouncer and a really good looking actor became unlikely best friends
Their red carpet photos were the sweetest.
The time Paul Walker dressed up as Vin Diesel on the Fast & Furious set
That's true bromance.
All those times they won awards together...
and went to red-carpet events as each other's date.
When they did interviews together
Like two peas in a pod.
When they never stopped being friends
