Vin Diesel posted an emotional video tribute to the late Paul Walker on his Facebook page. The actors co-starred in the Fast And The Furious film series until Walker was killed in a car crash in November.
Earlier this week, Vin Diesel revealed on Facebook that Paul Walker's death inspired him to go on a California road trip. During his travels, he recalled his time with the late actor, which inspired the tribute video. In particular, he recalled the two closing down a press junket and Walker's willingness to help during the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
"You have always been so supportive, especially in these past two months..." Diesel wrote to his fans. "So, I wanted to share something personal that I worked on through the New Year, in honor of my brother Pablo... Paul."
Vin Diesel labeled his Paul Walker tribute video, "A glimpse... of Dom and Brian... off screen." The names referenced the actors' characters in the action film franchise.
The footage mostly featured the duo admiring smiling and laughing while conducting Fast and the Furious interviews. There was also the emotional footage of Diesel searching for Paul Walker on-set so the cast and crew could wish him a happy birthday. The two shared a big hug after Walker blew out the candles.
The Paul Walker tribute video ended with a clip of the two actors answering fan questions before the release of Fast and Furious 6. "It's a blessing to be able to work with your brother on and off-screen," Diesel said. A caption then read "Pablo... Miss You..."

This is also not the first time Vin Diesel has paid tribute Paul Walker following his co-star's death. A few days after Walker's fatal car crash, Diesel wrote on Facebook that he went to visit the actor's family right after hearing the news.
"I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs," Diesel wrote. His mother hugged me and said I am so sorry... I said sorry? You're the mother who lost a son?... She said yes, but you lost your other half..."
Vin Diesel also paid tribute to Paul Walker at the site of the fatal car crash. After attending a private memorial for the late actor, Diesel went to the location and thanked fans for keeping vigil.
"At this hard time his family gets to see all of you show the love that you've shown Paul. It's going to stay with me forever," Diesel said. "I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciate him."
