Vin Diesel and the Fast and the Furious Cast are currently filming ‘Fast 8’, and it seems to be making Vin a little emotional.
Many of the crew members who have worked on several of the past Fast films are here again to help us make something special. One of them at the end of the week came up to me and said wow what we are capturing on film is excellent… And then looked at me and said Paul would be proud. #wemakethemwithourhearts
Recently he took to Instagram to post a photo of him with his sweet one-year-old daughter, Pauline, who he named after his late ‘brother’ following his fatal car accident.
The pic shows Vin Diesel lifting his little girl as a happy Paul Walker looks on from above.
He captioned the photo, “Always…” Vin has been extremely open about the impact that Paul, who died in a car crash in 2013, had on him.
He spoke out about what naming his little girl after his late friend meant to him, “[Naming my daughter Pauline] felt like … a way to keep his memory a part of my family and a part of my world,” Vin revealed on the TODAY show last year.
Vin went even further, explaining how Paul was present for Pauline’s birth. “He was in the room,” he said.
“There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I just … knew he was there.”
