By “Brian,” Diesel meant Brian O’Conner, the character Walker played in all but one of the six Fast & Furious movies to date.
2. Diesel and Walker first worked together on 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, and had been shooting Fast & Furious 7 in Atlanta before Walker’s accident. The status of that film remains unclear.
