Vin Diesel paid tribute to his former Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker when collecting an award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards night.
Diesel's former 'Fast & Furious' co-star died in a car accident in 2013 Walker, who played the character of Brian O’Conner in the franchise, died in 2013 after being involved in a car accident. Diesel was collecting the Generation Award at the ceremony, along with the rest of the cast, when he looked back on collecting a trophy with Walker at the same event.
“In 2002, I was standing on this stage, and MTV had given Paul Walker and I an award for Best Duo,” he said. “And now, 15 years later, I’m with my whole family, and you’re giving us the Generation Award. “Most importantly, I got to thank our generation. I got to thank a generation that was willing to accept this multicultural franchise where it didn’t matter what colour your skin was or what country you are from – when you’re family, you’re family.”
He went on to give a message to Walker, who he addressed using his pet name Pablo, as Digital Spy reports. “I could never stand on the stage and talk about Fast & Furious without giving love to my brother, Pablo, our brother Pablo – we hope you are proud, thank you so much,” Diesel added. The Fast & Furious franchise recently released its eighth movie in the form of The Fate Of The Furious. You can watch the trailer above.
