Paul Walker would have been proud of Furious 7, his final film, says his brother, Cody Walker.
The 26-year-old made his comments in a recent interview with E! News. He and Paul’s other brother, Caleb Walker, 37, worked as stand-ins and body doubles for the actor in the movie. which was still in production when the actor died at age 40 in a car crash on Nov. 30, 2013.
“Of course [he’d be proud]. It’s the best one yet, there’s no doubt,” Cody told E! News’ Ali Fedotowsky, regarding the film. “It was a bit of a rollercoaster being part of that, but I got to do it with Caleb…that made it an easier process.”
Paul had formed strong friendships with many of his cast members, with whom he had worked for years. Main star Vin Diesel has referred to actor as his “brother” and even named his newborn daughter Paulina, in his honor.
“It wasn’t just any film that Paul had been working on,” Cody told E! News. “This was a Fast & Furious movie. Everyone that was involved had been involved for years.”
Cody, who bears a strong resemblance to the blue-eyed actor, also spoke about how his family has been coping with their tragic loss over the past year and a half.
“Things have gotten better,” Cody told E! News. “Time certainly helps but we’re still recovering.”
