Vin Diesel is saluting the late Paul Walker at The Fate of the Furious premiere in New York City.

The 49-year-old actor took to the stage inside the premiere where he attributed the film franchise’s success to “the decades of work that my brother Pablo (Vin‘s nickname for Paul) put into this franchise.”

“There wasn’t a second we made this movie, not a minute, not a day that went by that we weren’t thinking about our brother Pablo: how to bring him into the movie, how to represent him, and how to make something that he would be proud of. Pablo, I hope you are proud tonight,” Vin shared with the crowd before sharing that Paul‘s mother Cheryl and daughter Meadow were both at the screening.

Paul died back in 2013 after getting in a car accident.
