The Rock took to Instagram on Aug. 9 to share a behind-the-scenes glimpse at a special video he made in Paul’s honor.
Standing in a gym and wearing a tank top, The Rock emotionally says the following to a presumed camera in front of him:
“Paul Walker was not only an incredible actor, dear friend, loving and devoted father to beautiful Meadow Rain, but he was also a champion for shark and marine conservation, whose efforts inspired so many.”
