Tyrese and Vin Diesel celebrate bittersweet wrap of Fast and Furious 7
Almost eight months after the death of Paul Walker, the movie he was working on at the time of his passing has wrapped and Walker's co-stars have taken to social media to both celebrate their work on Fast and Furious 7 and the life of their friend who was taken too soon.
Tyrese Gibson, who played Roman Pearce in four of the seven Fast and Furious films, posted a fun-filled pic of himself with director, James Wan, and Walker's brothers, Caleb and Cody, at the Fast and Furious 7 wrap party. While everyone in the photo is having a great time, Gibson wrote a touching caption that reminded everyone of the family atmosphere on the set and even refers to Paul's daughter, Meadow, as his niece.
"#Fast7 wrap party.... Emotional and bittersweet," the captions says. "In the end you always got #Family @codywalker Caleb Walker and Director Great.... James Wan.... Through prayers and determination and moving forward inspired by my heart Paul Walker we got through.... THE BEST CAST AND CREW IN THE WORLD.... The fans and the supporters around the world.... We LOVE YOU.... I wanna dedicate this moment to my niece Meadow Walker.... Uncle Ty loves you.... April 3rd we're gonna unleash this magic on the world.... I miss you heart... I miss you P-Dub!!!!"
Vin Diesel posted a more pensive photo of himself on Facebook and it looks like he is on the movie's set. "Fast Seven is wrapped! A life changing experience," he wrote. "None of it would have been possible without you... the strength, conviction and confidence came from you, and I know together, we have made Pablo proud."
Walker's brother, Cody, who helped fill in Paul's unfinished scenes in the movie along with Caleb, also got in on the fun at the wrap party and posted an Instagram photo posing with Gibson. The youngest Walker brother also gave a shout out to Reach Out Worldwide, the charitable organization that Paul ran. Cody stepped into Paul's role after his brother's passing and now leads ROWW. "That's a wrap baby!" the caption on Instagram reads. "Look at those teeth! @tyrese #beautiful #brothers #ff7 #FastandFurious7 #roww #Reachoutworldwide #Reachoutww #fastfamily #codywalkerroww."
It does not appear that Meadow was present at the party, but the 15-year-old recently surfaced publicly for the first time since Paul's accident. She posted a photo of herself looking happy on the beach with the simple caption, "glad to be back."
