Scott Eastwood is a new member to the Fast family, joining the franchise at Fast 8, but was fortunate enough to work with Paul Walker in their 2006 movie Flags of Our Fathers. Scott accompanied a beautiful picture of him and Paul together with some emotional words:
I love this pic because it sums up how you made people feel. You taught me so much. Lessons that I find myself passing on to people in my life now. Thanks for all the laughs big bro.
Sometimes pictures speak louder than words — although the date stamp on Vin Diesel's Facebook cover photo says "about 3 years ago," he changed his cover photo to the same image on November 30, 2016, choosing to reference Paul's death with the identical picture he used at the time, suggesting that his feelings are the same now, three years later.
Fast & Furious 8 is released April 14, 2017.
