Here’s some really nice comments Vin Diesel shared on his Facebook about his attempts to console his late “Fast & Furious” co-star Paul Walker’s mother.
“When I heard, I immediately flew back to California, and went directly from the plane to his mother’s house…
I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs.
His mother hugged me and said I am so sorry… I said sorry? You’re the mother who lost a son?… She said yes, but you lost your other half…”
“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…
I will always love you Brian, as the brother you were… on and off screen.”
I’m guilty of thinking that for actors it’s just about getting a paycheck at times so in the midst of this tragedy it’s very refreshing to see how tight this group of actors were even when the cameras weren’t rolling.
