On Wednesday night, Vin Diesel took to the People’s Choice Awards stage to accept the awards for Favorite Movie and Favorite Action Movie on behalf of the 2015 film “Furious 7.”
At the start of his speech, Diesel explained just how much the film’s cast and fans mean to him.
“You know, as I was coming up here, I always do this, I say, ‘I’m not going to get emotional about, you know, winning these awards,'” he said. “And then they handed me two awards [because] you all thought that this was your favorite film. So I think of Dom and Brian and I start to think of Paul.”
Paul Walker, of course, his co-star and friend who tragically passed away in a car accident in 2013.
