Actor Tyrese Gibson and other stars from 'Fast & Furious' film franchise paid tribute to their co-star and late friend Paul Walker on the fifth death anniversary of the star. Starting off with Gibson, he posted a series of pictures and videos on his social media profile remembering his dear friend who passed away at 40 on November 30, 2013. Walker passed away in a tragic accident when he was on his way back from a charity event. 

Gibson and Walker became really good friends while filming for 'Fast & Furious'. This is not the only time Gibson paid tribute to Walker, he often posts about his friend on Instagram. “5 years ago today we all woke up to a nightmare,” Gibson captioned his post. “Believe me it’s still very real for all of us that knew him and loved him personally. Something that would make you smile today. His I Am Paul Walker Documentary was just released today on iTunes.”

Apart from paying tribute to Walker, the actor and singer also made sure to send love to Meadow, Walker's daughter who was just 15 when her father passed away. “Please keep praying for the WALKER family especially his daughter @meadowwalker who’s one of the strongest most resilient angels out there!!" he wrote. After Walker's death, Gibson went to the accident site one day later and stood among fans in that makeshift memorial and broke down in tears.

In an interview with People, Walker's mother, Cheryl, revealed that there is much more to the actor than what he was known for. "I think so many people think, ‘Oh, he was just a movie star who was killed in a car accident.’ But there was so much more to him,” she told PEOPLE. “That was just a piece of who he was. He was an amazing man," she said.
