Gone, but never forgotten.
Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster joined their “Furious 7” co-stars Vin Diesel and Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges in an emotional tribute to honor the late Paul Walker.
The four co-stars hit the stage at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday to accept their award for Choice Movie: Action/Adventure and couldn’t help honor the actor, who died during a hiatus of filming the last of the “Fast and Furious” franchise.
“I can’t stand here and be rewarded like this without talking about someone very, very important to us,” Diesel told the audience. “One of the best blessings in our lives is that we have the opportunity to call Pablo our brother. Paul Walker is here with us in spirit.”
Diesel, who acknowledge Walker’s daughter Meadow Walker in the audience, said the late actor’s family keep encouraging them to finish filming after his death.
“This was a very special movie for us to make. We make these movies with our hearts. We really are a family… We are a true, true family,” he said.
Before exiting the stage, Brewster, who played Walker’s partner in the movie, added just a few words.
“We miss you and we will always love you Paul,” she said.
Rodriguez shared a photo of the four of them on stage after the show, captioning it: “Mad Love at the Teen Awards... Someone is smiling from heaven tonight.”
