Luke Evans discusses Paul Walker’s death

“He was a really, really lovely man”

Luke Evans has talked for the first time about the death of his Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker.

“It was horrible,” Evans said this week while promoting The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug. “Absolutely horrible. It happened the day I arrived in Los Angeles, just before we had to start this crazy press tour.”

Evans worked with Walker on Fast & Furious 6. The 34-year-old Brit added: “It’s very hard because I’d not really had a huge amount of time to process it. It’s slowly sinking in, as I’m sure it is for everybody else around the world.

“It’s just a terrible, terrible sad story, and he will be missed by a lot of people. He was a really, really lovely man.”

Walker passed away on 30 November 2013 after being involved in a car crash.

Fast & Furious 7 has been put on hold indefinitely. Our thoughts remain with his friends and family at this difficult time.

      Nice words by even's and yeah dont think it will sink in for some time, slightly off point though didn't that just read he was going to star opposite him again in fast 7??? Isn't that kinda spoilerific? or a mistake since hes supposed to be dead? hence Statham's involvement as his vengful brother! or maybe he's just gonns be a memory or flashback etc?.............. im Mattfused :(

      Unless it's been edited in the time between you commenting and now, I can't see anything that suggests Evans would be in F&F7.
