Following some comments, which popped up on instagram and twitter under Diesel’s name, but later turned out to have been posted by fake accounts, the actor shared some touching sentiments in his first real statement. His post begins with a quote by Thomas Campbell: “To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.” Diesel then goes on to express his grief in a statement, which has so far gathered thousands of likes and over 36,000 sympathetic comments, all lamenting the actor’s sudden death.

The news of Walker's death on Saturday shocked friends, family and fans.

“I will always love you Brian,” Diesel adds, referring to Walker’s character in the “Fast” franchise, “as the brother you were on and offscreen.”

Walker was in a car crash on Saturday, which killed both him and the driver of the vehicle, Roger Rodas. At the time, the Fast and Furious actor was on a break from filming the seventh installment in the franchise. Filming has now been halted, while the studio (Universal Studios is the main company behind the films) figures out how to handle Walker’s death withing the F&F universe.

According to E!News, footage of of the funeral of Sung Kang's Han and Gal Gadot's Gisele, apparently set after the events of Tokyo Drift, was leaked online recently. It was quickly pulled by the studio. Diesel has lead a wave of tributes, which has so far included tweets and messages from the likes of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Liam Neeson and Zoe Saldana.
