Vin Diesel and the stars of Furious 7 remembered their late co-star Paul Walker on Sunday at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles.
‘Paul Walker is here in spirit with us!’ Diesel, 48, said while accepting the award at the Galen Center for Choice Movie: Action/Adventure with co-stars Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez and Ludacris.

Walker died in November 2013 in a high-speed car accident following a charity event while Furious 7 was still filming.
‘I can’t stand here and be rewarded like this without talking about somebody very, very, very important to us,’ said Diesel, who was clad in a forest green tank-top and sunglasses.
‘One of the best blessings in our lives is the fact that we had the opportunity to call Paul our brother. Paul Walker is here in spirit with us!,’ he added.

A photo of Walker was shown on a large screen behind them as Diesel, Brewster and Rodriguez held hands. Ludacris stood nearby and held the surfboard-shaped award.


“One of the best blessings in our lives is the fact that we had the opportunity to call Pablo our brother. Paul Walker is here in spirit with us!”


Diesel said that Walker’s family provided encouragement as they filmed the movie that opened in April and has earned more than $1.5 billion at the box office. ‘And since this is a Teen Choice Award, you beautiful teens, there is one teen in the audience that is a part of the family and kept us going. Her name is Meadow Walker,’ Diesel said as he acknowledged the late actor’s daughter.

‘It was Paul Walker’s family, his brothers, his parents, that kept us going while we were filming Furious 7,’ Diesel said.
Show co-host Ludacris then announced that Walker was posthumously in the category Choice Movie Actor: Action/Adventure.
‘We miss you and we will always, always love you, Paul,’ Brewster added on the stage.
‘Rest in peace!,’ Ludacris said.

‘I love all of you and until Fast 8,’ Diesel said revealing the title of the next installment in the franchise.
The song “See You Again” from Furious 7 by Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Pluth also was named Choice Song from a Movie or TV Show and also Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song.
