Paul Walker passed away almost 6 years ago and recently the Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel paid tribute to him on the set of the upcoming film Fast & Furious 9.

The ninth Fast & Furious movie is currently filming and Paul Walker's brother Cody stopped by the set. Vin Diesel, who will reprise his role as "Dom Toretto" in the upcoming film, paid tribute to Paul Walker by posting a lovely picture on his Instagram account with the late actor's brother: "There is something special that happens every time Cody comes to visit production….” Diesel wrote.

Cody Walker appeared as a stand-in for Paul Walker in an emotional scene at the end of the seventh Fast & Furious movie back in 2015. The actor passed away in November 2013 at the age of 40 during a car accident; with Furious 7 in the middle of filming at the time of his death, Universal Studios announced an indeterminate hiatus on the production, as well as a desire to speak with Paul's family before deciding what to do with the movie.
