“Fast and Furious” star Vin Diesel recently recalled the moment the late Paul Walker’s mom, Cheryl Walker, told him that his friend and co-star had died.

During his interview with Maria Menounos on SiriusXM (via People), Diesel revealed that he flew from Atlanta straight to Cheryl’s home the day after the 2013 car crash that took Walker’s life. “The day after the tragedy, for me to fly from Atlanta that night and to show up at his mother’s house and for me to say to his mother, ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry,’ and for his mother to say to me, ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry’ – I said, ‘Why? Why are you saying sorry to me?’ And she said, ‘Because you lost your other half,’” he shared.

After Walker’s untimely demise, Cheryl spoke with Diesel’s mom, Delora Vincent, and reminded her to always show her love for her children.

Meanwhile, Diesel also opened up about the eighth installment of the franchise, “The Fate of the Furious,” and said that Walker is still with him in the making of the film. “The Fate of the Furious” is the first film that will not feature Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner. “There wasn’t a day, there wasn’t a scene, there wasn’t a second where I didn’t have Paul with me in the making of this movie. It’s not making movie without Paul, it’s ‘What’s life like? What’s living like without Paul?’” he said.

Walker died at the age of 40 on Nov. 30, 2013 when a car that he was riding in crashed and exploded. In the statement released by the police, it was revealed that Walker was with another person at the time of accident. Both of them were pronounced dead at the scene.
