Vin Diesel, like all of us, is still feeling the loss of his late Furious franchise co-star Paul Walker.
In an interview with Sirius XM’s Maria Menounos, the actor said he thinks of Walker — who died in a fatal car crash in 2014 — often.
“There wasn’t a day, there wasn’t a scene, there wasn’t a second where I didn’t have Paul with me in the making of this movie," he said of working on the latest installment, Fate of the Furious.
Diesel also opened up about talking to Walker's mom following his death. After expressing his own condolences for her loss, Walker's mother Cheryl repeated his sentiment.
“I said, ‘Why? Why are you saying you’re sorry to me?’ She said, ‘Because you lost your other half,'” Diesel recalled. “At that moment it was like I had just realized she was telling me something I wasn’t even aware of. I wasn’t aware of how profound the loss was.”
Cheryl and Walker's daughter, Meadow, were at the New York premiere of the film over the weekend.
The eighth film rolls out in theaters Friday.
