Diesel said: “So, The whole point of the Fast and Furious saga is the idea that brotherhood can be created by bond and not necessarily blood. Therefore, much of Fast and Furious is celebrated by an eternal brotherhood. I never in a million years imagined 21 years ago that, beyond the script and the film, there would be this other guiding light. This other driving force that propels you to be as passionate as you can and manifest in the movie. We’re all mortals, but love is immortal.”

“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, Diesel said in a 2016 interview with Entertainment Tonight

He then referenced the fact that each time he had been to Brazil was with his best friend and co-star: “I’d been to Brazil two times before. Both times that I’ve been here, I’ve always been with my brother, Pablo.” Deisel often referred to Walker as Uncle Pablo.

Upon returning to Brazil without Paul Walker, he had an emotional time trying to deal with his death all over again. He said: “It was a lot of tissues. It was a hard morning for me yesterday because I was here. But the irony is the whole cast reached out. His daughter, Meadow, reached out, and all that stuff that helps you get through it.
