Jordana Brewster remembers Paul Walker
Jordana Brewster’s friendship with the late Paul Walker was the "highlight" of her time doing the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise.
The 36-year-old actress played Mia Toretto in the action film franchise and whilst she misses her co-star Paul – who died in a car crash in November 2013 – terribly, she remembers their friendship with fondness.
She said: "[We’re still friends.] I love Vin, I love Michelle … but my friendship with Paul was definitely the highlight because he was the best guy. So, the bond I had with him was definitely the best part."
And the ‘Lethal Weapon’ star hopes Mia has found peace too.
She told ABC News: "[She’s] with Brian, so I can’t think of a better place for her to be. In the seventh one, Mia was pregnant with a girl. So, I imagine they’re on some island, on some idyllic island, just living the life. I think it was like Fiji they were talking about and it was always the island life they wanted."
Meanwhile, Vin Diesel previously admitted he "prays" Paul will be proud of ‘Fast and Furious 8’.
He wrote on Instagram: "The arduous road to production, the challenging task of filming this latest chapter. The record-breaking trailer debut and the shocked world at what the dark road implied… you Pablo have given me strength… purpose and resolve. I promised you we would make something you would be proud of and I pray that we have… miss you. Family above everything! #happytorettotuesday (sic)."
And Vin admits he is still struggling to come to terms with the death of Paul, who was just 40-years-old when he tragically passed away.
Speaking previously, he added: "It was a lot of tissues. It was a hard morning for me yesterday [on the anniversary of Paul’s death] because I was here. But the irony is the whole cast reached out and his daughter, Meadow, reached out and all that stuff helps you get through it. We’ve felt the loss. The last three years have been some of the hardest of my life because of losing my brother like that."
