Vin Diesel Heartbroken as He Reveals Paul Walker’s Dreams About Fast X
Paul Walker was a close friend of Vin Diesel’s and a crucial part of the Fast & Furious franchise, and ten years after his death, his vision and dream were fulfilled.
The marvelous friendship between Paul Walker and Vin Diesel was what manifested the now-iconic Fast & Furious franchise as the two men who felt like brothers set on a journey to make their dream movies come true.
It was a long way, but they walked it together, embodying the idea of family that is still central to their franchise.
It was heartbreaking for the entire world to learn about the death of Paul Walker in 2013, but it was even more so for Vin Diesel who lost not only a co-star and the face of F&F but a dear friend, too.
As a tribute to his brother, Diesel included a beautiful and sad scene of them parting ways in their cars in the next Fast & Furious film.
But even though it could never remain the same without him, even after Walker’s death, the franchise kept going, led by his friend — now, the Godfather of F&F, Vin Diesel. His passion to make their common dreams come true was moving him forward, and year after year, Diesel has kept dedicating himself to the franchise.
Now, ten years after Paul Walker’s passing, with the release of Fast X, Vin Diesel talked about how the latest movie made his friend’s dream and vision come true — and shared the warning Walker gave him when they were only at the start of their journey that would results in one of the most successful franchises to date.
“[Paul] said to me, ‘Vin, take all this in as people are walking over our feet and not looking at us.’ And he [told me] to take in that anonymity because once this movie [Fast & Furious] comes out, we will no longer have anonymity,” the actor shared.
Vin Diesel also revealed that Walker always wanted to see their franchise reach the “perfect ten,” and Fast X, being the tenth F&F movie, made this years-long dream finally come true. As Diesel was speaking, it was clear that it took him all his strength to avoid tears, but he couldn’t help but feel happy at making his passed friend’s vision come true.
