Fast & Furious 7” stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker were like brothers on-screen and off.

When Walker’s death left a hole in both his real-life family and his “Fast” one, the two came together in a truly special way.

Per “EW,” Diesel posted a photo of himself with the late actor’s brothers, who will fill in as body doubles in scenes left unfilmed at the time of the crash.

“After spending time with his biological brothers, I must say to the parents, you raised some great kids,” he wrote in an attached message.

The “Riddick” star also shared a conversation he had with Paul’s father.

“When I heard the news, I left the production, grabbed a plane and took my family and Michelle [Rodriguez] back to LA… drove directly to his parent’s house…” he explained. “His Father said, Paul loved you Vin… then he said… you don’t have to get along every second to love each other… so true.”

“Fast & Furious 7” is expected to finish filming later this year for release next spring.
