Fast cars, exposed biceps, and charming banter all pale in comparison to the importance of family in the Fast and Furious series.

That was demonstrated in a beautiful way when Vin Diesel walked Meadow Walker, the late Paul Walker’s daughter, down the aisle at her wedding on October 22.

Paul Walker died in a car accident in November 2013, which was traumatic for his Fast cast members, especially Diesel.

They had been working together for over a decade and were great friends. Meadow’s godfather is Diesel, who named his six-year-old daughter Pauline after Walker.

Diesel discussed the loss of Walker and how it damaged the brand in a June interview with E! Walker’s character Brian O’Conner still remains in the film’s universe, despite the fact that he hasn’t appeared in any films since Furious 7.

“When the tragedy happened back in 2013, we stopped filming Furious 7 for about five months because we were wrapping our heads around what we were going to do, while mourning. And the studio accepted a bold decision, which was to allow the character to exist in our mythology,” Diesel said.

“And to that end alone, you have to honour that. On a personal level, we started this franchise together. Alongside us starting the franchise, we started a brotherhood. Our brotherhood will outlast the franchise.”

Diesel also spoke to Extra about his relationship with Meadow during the press run around F9.

“She’s the first person on Father’s Day to wish me Happy Father’s Day,” Diesel said. “To see her with my children is one of the most beautiful things. There are moments when I see her playing with Pauline and it hits me so deep ’cause I can only imagine what my brother sees when he sees that.”

Walker, 22, is a successful model and also runs the Paul Walker Foundation, which focuses in part on doing good for the ocean and aquatic life, a passion of her father’s. She married Louis Thornton-Allan.

While there has been plenty of coverage of Diesel and Meadow Walker, the latter may have summed up the emotions best in her Instagram caption: a simple, succinct “ayooooo.
