Fast and Furious Stars Pay Tribute To Paul Walker Three Years After His Death

Three years ago, Paul Walker tragically died in a car accident, leaving his family, friends, and Fast and Furious co-stars devastated. To honor the passing of their friend, some of the franchise's stars took to their social media accounts to remember the late actor.

Tyrese Gibson posted the above on his Instagram account, saying:

"This week is always rough for those of us who really knew him personally 14 years of laugher, hugs and love literally one of the nicest people on HUMAN FEET!!!! Nov 30th we lost an angel! Paul treated everyone with the upmost respect and went out of his way to make everyone feel like they mattered...... I love and I miss you dearly /. We simply ask of you prayer warriors around the world pray for his daughter our niece Meadow Walker and his dear brothers CODY and Caleb and parents and his Besty named Roland and Brandon who were literally with him everyday!!!!!! May God rest your soul we hope we make you proud everyday!!!!! RIH ( rest in heaven )..... P-Dubber!!!!"

Gibson worked with Walker in 2 Fast 2 Furious, the original film's first sequel. Gibson returned to the franchise in Fast 5, playing an integral role in the cast's dynamic in subsequent sequels.

Jordana Brewster also took to social media to express her admiration for Walker, who she shared an on-screen romance with throughout the franchise.

Walker died during some time off while shooting Furious 7, leaving the production in shambles. After delays, the production moved forward after some rewrites to Walker's character and using CGI on body doubles, Walker's brothers Caleb and Cody no less, to piece the film together. Furious 7 went on to gross $1.5 billion worldwide, and included a touching tribute at the end to give Walker the proper send off he deserved.

The next installment in the franchise, Fast 8, recently wrapped filming and is headed for theaters in April of 2017.
