Movie actor Vin Diesel felt “embarrassed” when he first came back to the Furious 7 set after Paul Walker’s death, on the grounds that he couldn’t quit crying at the loss of close friend and co-star.
Filming on the most recent Fast & Furious continuation was delayed in November, 2013, after Walker was killed in a car accident, and when the shoot in the end continued, Diesel was a mess.
He fears he let his fellow stars around “failing” to keep his self-control and work through the torment, telling Variety.com,
“I’m expected to be in a killer mode. I used three boxes of tissues, and I felt so humiliated. “I had always been the type of actor that other actors respect. I was simply failing so hard.
My nose was running and my eyes were tearing. I needed to walk off set and try to get all the liquids out. I couldn’t contain my feeling… It turned into the hardest film I ever needed to shoot.” Walker’s siblings Cody and Caleb consented to help chief James Wan complete filming by acting as their late kin’s stand ins, and his onscreen wife, Jordana Brewster, as of late guaranteed fans they will be satisfied with the closure of Furious 7, which serves as a tribute to Walker’s memory.
Also, to honor his fallen brother, he named his third child Pauline.
Furious 7 is expected for release in April (15).
