Michelle Rodriguez, who worked alongside actor Paul Walker for years, has broken her silence on her co-star’s untimely death. The Fast and Furious actress took to Twitter to express her heartbreak over her loss.
“I’m gonna carry this torch for you brother, with a forced smile on my face and Im gonna open my heart just cause your telling me to,” she wrote.
The day before Walker’s death, Rodriguez had posted pictures of the two of them on her Facebook page, one from 12 years ago, and one picture of the cast of the Fast and Furious eating together, which has been widely circulated in recent days.
Many of Walker’s co-stars who have been on break from filming the next installment in the Fast and Furious franchise have been speaking out on social media about their loss. Some have even visited the site of the crash to pay respects to their friend.
Just last month, Rodriguez told Latina how close knit the entire cast was.
“These guys are like family now, 13 years in the game, knowing each other. It’s a very familiar place getting to work together,” she said.
