Action man Vin Diesel has compiled a video montage of behind-the-scenes footage from the Fast & Furious films to pay tribute to late co-star Paul Walker, five weeks after his death. The tragic actor was killed in a fiery car crash in California on 30 November (13) and Diesel has started 2014 by sharing some of his favourite memories of Walker with fans online. Introducing the 18-minute video posted on his page, Diesel writes, "You have always been so supportive, especially in these past two months. So, I wanted to share something personal that I worked on through the New Year, in honor of my brother Pablo... Paul." The tribute, captioned, "A glimpse... of Dom and Brian... off screen" - a reference to their character names - features various clips of the pals joking around at different promotional events for the street racing franchise, hanging out at a car workshop and paying a visit to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. Meanwhile, their movie co-star Tyrese Gibson was given a sad reminder of Walker's passing during a trip to Dubai, United Arab Emirates this week (begs06Jan14) after coming across a yellow sports car, similar to the 'Bumblebee' vehicle used in his Transformers movies, with "Dude I almost had you. R.I.P. Paul Walker 1973-2013" emblazoned on the back bumper. An emotional Gibson posted a short video of his reaction to the unexpected car tribute online on Wednesday (08Jan14), ending the clip with the words, "My my my, rest in peace big homie."
