  • Furious 7 Premiere gets everyone teary-eyed for Paul Walker

There was grief over seeing Paul Walker for the last time in the Furious 7 Premiere. The versatile star died in a car accident causing his family, friends and fans to go into an extended mourning period.

Vin Diesel looked worn out and in tears of anguish as he made the intro to the world premiere of Furious 7. Soon laudatory statements were forthcoming from every quarter. Paul, as everyone knows, was the main man of the franchise.

Vin Diesel took to the podium and fought back tears as he said that last year it was a tough time he was facing due to his best buddy’s absence from the acting sequences. Vin Diesel said that merely returning to act in front of the camera was a task in itself after the devastation he felt upon hearing of Walker’s death.

However, later on the directors decided to carry on with the film despite Paul not being with them. They wanted to honor his memory by completing the movie. Vin Diesel said that this would be the last time everybody got a peek at Paul Walker. So let’s make it count and gaze at the cinema screen with our eyes wide open. 

One of the producers also approached the rostrum and addressed the crowd. His hands were shaking from emotional excess as he tearfully announced that Paul was the most caring and helpful human being he had ever met. He will always have a place in his heart.

Meanwhile, Cody Walker and Caleb Walker, who happen to be brothers of Paul Walker, acted as body doubles in the film. One of them told E! News that he was nervous regarding how people would take the movie.

But he hoped that Paul, if he was looking on from heaven, would appreciate the effort and give them all two thumbs up. The Walker family has also extended the late actor’s humanitarian concerns. Paul was loved by virtually everyone in the industry. He was a true hero and his tragic and youthful death has left so many bereft.

Furious 7 stars mentioned that Paul was a method actor. If he wanted to shoot a weapon in a movie, he actually became a marksman in real life as practice for his role in the film. And if he wanted to do a fight scene, he would spend months in a dojo training under masters for the martial arts routines which would help him be a better fighter in the movie.

Fans cannot wait to catch a glimpse of Paul in his final moments as they will at the Fast & Furious 7premiere.
