“Many of the crew members who have worked on several of the past Fast films are here again to help us make something special,” he captioned a throwback photo of himself seated beside Walker.

“One of them at the end of the week came up to me and said wow what we are capturing on film is excellent... And then looked at me and said Paul would be proud.”

Two days prior, Diesel also posted a video to his Instagram account, in which he shared his thoughts on filming the latest Fast and Furious instalment without Walker.
