Dwayne Johnson has marked what would have been Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker’s 46th birthday with an emotional tribute.
The actor tragically passed away in a car crash in 2013, and Johnson starred alongside him in numerous movies in the franchise before his death.
Taking to Instagram yesterday (September 12), Johnson admitted that he doesn’t usually like to speak publicly about his relationship with his late co-star.
“I never post about my friend,” he wrote. “Personal thing, but I prefer to keep our memories and bond private and quiet. But something about today compelled me as a moving reminder of how fragile life is for all of us.
“It’s Paul’s birthday and rightfully so, his legacy celebrated around the world. Our friendship was bonded over our daughters, Meadow & Simone and the pride and protection we took being their fathers.
And recently, I got a scare when I almost lost another friend on the road. All this stuff got me thinking about how beautiful, yet wildly unpredictable life is.
“We never know what’s around the corner, so we gotta live as greatly as we can in the honor of our loved ones and ancestors who are no longer with us. Manuia le aso fanau, my friend. #livegreatly #pw”.
