After “The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev uttered her sad goodbye to Elena Gilbert at the Teen Choice Awards, the tears kept flowing.
Because “Furious 7“.
Things got even more emotional at the awards when the “Furious 7” cast (Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, and Jordana Brewster) came on stage to accept the award for “Choice Movie: Action”.
After thanking their young fans, Vin Diesel took a moment to remember the late Paul Walker, who died in a tragic car crash in 2013 while “Furious 7” was still in production. He said:
I can’t stand here and be rewarded like this without talking about somebody very, very, very important to us. One of the best blessings in our lives is the fact that we have the opportunity to call Pablo our brother. Paul Walker is here in spirit with us.
After which, he didn’t forget to give a shoutout to someone who was also very, very important to the “Furious 7” family – Paul’s 16-year-old daughter, Meadow.
Vin Diesel added:
Since this is a Teen Choice Award, you beautiful teens, there is one teen in the audience that is a part of the family that kept us going. It’s Paul Walker’s family – his brother, his parents – that kept us encouraged when we were filming “Furious 7”, but there’s one very, very special teen here and her name is Meadow Walker.
It was truly a big night for “Furious 7” and its cast.
Let’s not forget that Paul Walker also posthumously bested Vin Diesel and 5 other actors to be awarded “Choice Actor: Action”.
We miss you, Paul Walker :(
Meanwhile, the next “Fast & Furious” film is set to be released on 14th April 2017.
