Playing the role of a true hero, Vin Diesel gallantly sweeps Jordana Brewster out of harm’s way while filming a thrilling house explosion scene for Fast & Furious 7.
The Fast & Furious franchise is known for its adrenaline pumping action and explosions. And it seems that the seventh film will be no different, with stars Vin Diesel and Jordana Brewster pictured filming an explosion scene in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The 46-year-old actor swept his 34-year-old co-star out of the way, saving her from an ignited house.
In between takes, Jordana was pictured covering her mouth and frowning with flames ablaze behind her. She looked lovely and feminine in a blue polka dotted summer dress with a black ribbon tied around her waist. The beautiful brunette dressed it up with wedge heels and wore her dark hair in long luxurious waves cascading down her back.
Meanwhile, Vin showed off his impressive guns in a sleeveless vest over matching trousers, a white cotton tank top, and black combat boots. The stars were pictured laughing on set as they took their lunch break. The new film marks the first time they will star in the project without their original leading man, Paul Walker, who passed away in a tragic car accident last November.
His brother Cody, 25, has agreed to film crucial scenes for Fast & Furious 7 as a tribute to his older brother.
And a production source tells MailOnline: ‘Paul’s character Brian O’Conner will be seen retiring, while his younger brother will join the crew.
‘Of course, Cody isn’t a replacement for Paul in any way, but the producers were really grateful that he stepped in to help them finish this last film and Cody is so likeable and charming.
‘It would be a tribute to Paul that Cody carries on the Walker name in the Fast and The Furious movies.’
Breaking his silence on his brother’s death for the first time, Cody – who filmed extra scenes alongside his older brother Caleb, 36 – said in April: ‘It still doesn’t feel real because sometimes, working in this industry, making films, he’d be away from his family three, four, six months at a time.
‘My only interaction would be a phone call. I know it’s going to take a while, it’s going to take a few years before it feels real.’
