Fans of actor Vin Diesel are well aware that he and Paul Walker were so much more than just co-stars — in fact Diesel refers to Walker as his family.

Diesel has always been vocal about how difficult the loss of Walker was when he died in a tragic single-car accident on November 30, 2013, and three years later, Diesel is still trying to cope with the loss of his “brother.” “We’ve felt the loss. The last three years have been some of the hardest of my life because of losing my brother like that,” the actor told Entertainment Tonight.

He went on to explain that the cast of Fast & Furious came together to help each other get through the very difficult time while they were in the middle of film Furious 7. “I’d been to Brazil two times before and both times that I’ve been here, I’ve always been with my brother, Pablo. Even if I talked on ET in Brazil or any other talk show, any press or while we were filming in favelas, it was Pablo and me. It was a lot of tissues and it was a hard morning for me yesterday because I was here. But the irony is the whole cast reached and his daughter, Meadow, reached out and all that stuff helps you get through it.”
