The post featured a photo of both himself and Paul on the set of what looks to be the first Fast and Furious film. Alongside thus, he posted the following caption.
“@meadowwalker sends me this image and tells me how happy the photo makes her feel.
“Naturally, one gets filled with emotion, purpose and ultimately gratitude,” he writes. “Eternal brotherhood is a blessing beyond words. Hope to make you proud … All love, Always.”
Meadow also posted a photo to Instagram of her wearing her dad’s sunglasses, with a response from who I expect to be Diesel saying, “Where the brotherhood began”.
Paul was a beloved part of the films, with both fans and actors of the franchise showing their love for him each year after his passing. Paul was involved in a car accident in 2013, and news of his passing threw the car world into a state of mourning. Even while writing this, I can’t believe it’s been eight years since I heard the news.
The Fast family is exactly that, both in the films and out, so it’s no surprise that Vin and Paul were like brothers.
Paul’s brothers Cody and Caleb stepped in to help finish Furious 7, with Cody telling TNZ the following.
“I think Vin and the whole family have done a good job tastefully letting the character ride off into the sunset. I think Paul would get a real kick out of where it’s gone. It’s gotten so crazy. It’s a wild, wild ride at this point.”
Fast 9, where we see a glimpse of Paul as Brian O’Connor, will hit cinemas on June 25th.
