Gone, but absolutely not forgotten!
Things got emotional Sunday night at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards when the cast of Furious 7 accepted their award for Choice Movie: Action/Adventure.
Vin Diesel joined co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster and Ludacris on stage where they couldn’t help but honor their late co-star Paul Walker.
“I can’t stand here and be rewarded like this without talking about someone very, very important to us,” Diesel shared with the audience. “One of the best blessings in our lives is that we have the opportunity to call Pablo a brother. Paul Walker is here with us in spirit.
He continued, “This was a very special movie for us to make. We make these movies with our hearts. We really are a family…We are a true, true, true family.”
If that wasn’t moving enough, Diesel surprised the crowd when he announced members of Paul’s family were in the audience to support the film’s success.
“Since this is a Teen Choice Award, there is one teen in the audience that is a part of the family that kept us going. It’s Paul Walker’s family—his brother, his parents—that kept us encouraged when we were filming Furious 7,” he shared as the audience applauded. “But there’s one very, very special teen here and her name is Meadow Walker.”
