It's still hard to believe that Paul Walker is gone.

The actor died tragically in a car crash one year ago today in Santa Clarita, Calif., at the age of 40.

But Walker's legacy continues to live on in the successful Fast & Furious franchise movies. Earlier this month, Vin Diesel reminisced about his late friend and co-star at the Furious 7 trailer premiere panel.

"When you watch our movie, all the differences of skin tone and language go out the window," Diesel said. "All you see is family, and that started with the brotherhood of Dom and Brian."

"It's touching because we lost such a special person, a special angel," he said. "That was the beginning of that and allowed for us to have this multicultural brotherhood and family."
