Soap2day – In "Fast X," the character played by Paul Walker is still "very much alive." The late actor, who died in a car accident at age 40 in 2013, played Brian O'Conner in six movies in the "Fast and Furious" franchise. His last appearance was in "Fast and Furious 6," which came out after his death. Brian has since retired, but his presence is still felt thanks to CGI and the fact that his two brothers work as body doubles.
"Well, Brian is still alive in the Fast and Furious universe, and he's been teased a lot in the movies. In 9, the car comes into view. It's something that's supposed to happen. This movie jumps from the past to the present and back again "director Louis Leterrier told TotalFilm about how he planned to make the next movie in the series.
He said that the character would be seen "in the past" and that Walker's family is still a very important part of the franchise. He added, "Brian will show up in the past, but not in the present. It's something that everyone needs to agree on. You'll see in this movie how the Walker family is still a big part of this series. It only needs to be the right time and tone."
Last year, on November 30, which was the anniversary of Walker's death, his former co-star Vin Diesel posted an old photo of the two of them on Instagram as a touching tribute to his friend. The actor put "Nine years... love you and miss you" as the post's caption.
Paul was at the top of his popularity when he was killed in a car accident in Santa Clarita, California. The Porsche he was driving with his friend Roger Rodas hit a concrete post and caught on fire. The terrible crash killed both men.
After Paul died, Vin put out a statement about how sad he was. It said: "I wish you could see the world right now, Pablo... and how much your whole life has meant to it, to us, and to me." He then talked about his friend's character on "Fast and Furious," Brian O'Conner, and said, "I will always love you, Brian, as the brother you were, on and off screen."
