Michelle Rodriguez: 'No one will ever fill Paul Walker's shoes'

Actress Michelle Rodriguez is adamant Scott Eastwood has not been hired to "fill" Paul Walker's shoes in the new Fast & Furious movie.

Paul died in a tragic car crash in November, 2013, while filming the last instalment of the street-car racing franchise, Furious 7. His brothers Cody and Caleb were brought onboard as his stand-ins to help complete the shoot.

Clint Eastwood's actor son was announced as the latest cast member for the highly-anticipated Fast 8 on Monday (11Apr16), and he promptly took to Instagram.com to honour his late pal, who was like "an older brother" to him.

In the touching post, Scott vowed to make Paul proud with his role, and admitted, "For me to be able to add to the F&F story, Paul's story, and the FAST family is like a dream come true."

Some fans have speculated that Scott was hired to effectively replace Paul's character, Brian O'Conner, in the final three movies, but Michelle insists that isn't the case.

"I don't know about that," the feisty Latina told TMZ.com when asked for her thoughts on Scott being brought in to "fill Paul Walker's role".
