LOS ANGELES, CA - The premier of the movie "Furious 7" is less than a week away, and the stars of the film are out promoting it. This hasn't been easy on Vin Diesel, though.

The actor was very close friends with "Furious" co-star Paul Walker, who died in a car accident in November 2013. His grief was evident as he sat down with WGN-TV’s Dean Richards  to talk about the movie. Diesel got very, very emotional when Richards asked him how he was coping with the loss of Walker.

“My career is so blessed and it almost doesn’t feel fair,” an emotional Diesel said to Richards.

Last week, Diesel revealed that he named his third child, a daughter, Pauline, in honor of Walker.

Walker does appear in the movie, as ‘Furious 7′ was in the middle of filming at the time of his death. His brother filled in to finish the film.
