With reporting by Nicole Pajer
It's safe to say that ' Furious 7 ' hasn't had the smoothest road. Star Paul Walker passed away in a single-car accident in November 2013, halting production for several weeks. A decision had to be made of how to proceed after Walker's death, a dilemma solved by employing a combination of post-production effects and Walker's brothers to finish the actor's remaining scenes.
Now, the final product is about to hit theaters, with a touching tribute to Walker at the end of the film, as well as a dedication to the late actor . At a press day ahead of the film's release, the cast told MTV News about how they felt seeing the finished product, a sequence Dwayne Johnson called 'incredibly emotional.'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-f05X1ixbk
'It's emotional for me, it's emotional for audiences when they see it, because I love Paul,' Johnson said. 'I miss that man. I really miss him. He's like a brother. He was like a brother to all of us.'
Jordana Brewster, who played Walker's on-screen wife throughout the series, called Walker 'the best part about shooting these.'
'I have 15 years of memories, and I don't have one bad memory of Paul,' she said.
Vin Diesel, who has been very public with fans about his grief over Walker's passing, even naming his new daughter Pauline , gave kudos to the cast and crew for the tribute.
'I think everyone came together and brilliantly honored this angel,' he said.
'Furious 7' hits theaters April 3.
