Paul Walker will always be in our hearts.
At the premiere of Furious 7 on Wednesday, the entire cast was there to celebrate both the film and the late actor’s legacy.
According to his friend and co-star Tyrese Gibson, the seventh installment of the franchise — which was filmed before and after Walker’s tragic death in late 2013 — was made with the hearthrob in mind.
“He was truly an angel├óΓé¼┬ª We were inspired to pick up the pieces and keep moving because it became ‘Let us do this on his behalf.’ It’s really hard to do red carpets and have so many people walking up to you screaming … I’m just thinking to myself, ‘It’s not about me. It is so all about Paul.”‘
The R&B singer even dished on his buddy’s daughter, 16-year-old Meadow Walker, who is currently living with her mother, Rebecca Soteros.
The 36-year-old revealed:
“She’s really in a great space. She’s really focused on her education and just spending a lot of quality time with her friends. That brings her a lot of joy.”
This makes us incredibly happy!
The former model even went on Instagram later that evening to honor his friend one more time.

As we reported, at the end of the film, there is a special tribute for Walker that will celebrate what he has done for the world of cinema.
May you rest in peace, Paul.
