Never does a day go by when Vin Diesel doesn't remember his old friend and co-star Paul Walker, who tragically died back in November 2013 after a single-vehicle collision.

And recently, when attending the Universal Pictures CinemaCon screening of his upcoming movie , the actor paid tribute to beloved Pablo by saying that he was behind the making of the 8th film in the engine-revving franchise. He said:

"It was Paul Walker who promised eight. It played over and over again in my brain."

He then added:

"Part of Paul’s legacy lives through every frame that we shoot. You are reminded of this angel that was so integral to this concept of brotherhood for our millennium. There’s something beautiful about that. There’s something celebratory about that…"

Clearly overwhelmed with raw emotion, Vin Diesel — who even named his youngest daughter "Pauline" after his best friend — then put his hand over his eyes to fight back tears:

"I always feel like he’s looking down on us so we didn’t want to let him down."

His co-star Tyrese Gibson then contributed:

"We move and operate in the memory of Paul Walker."

The Fate of the Furious hits cinemas on April 14, and will be the first movie not to feature the late Paul Walker — here's the trailer:
