Fast and Furious star Paul Walker, who died in a road accident in Los Angeles, has been remembered by the makers of 'Fast and Furious' in a two-minute video tribute, pulling together key moments from the film series.

The Tribute video

Universal Studios has released the video, A Tribute to Paul Walker, on YouTube with scenes and clips of the actor, who died in the car crash.

The clip shows key moments from the 14 years of the film franchise, showing touching moments between Walker and his co-stars. The video highlights Walker's five appearances as Brian O'Conner in the series (he was not in Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift) before finishing with the message, 'In Loving Memory'.

Uploaded on December 4, the video has so far recorded around 9 million views till the time of filing this report.

The video is sound-tracked by Skylar Grey's track 'Coming Home' and ends with a picture of the actor posing by a car with the words 'In Loving Memory'.

The Fast and Furious YouTube channel is dedicated to behind-the-scenes glimpses of the franchise stars, trailers for the movies, and favourite excerpts from the movie.

A message with the video reads: 'Paul Walker's family appreciates the outpouring of love and goodwill from his many fans and friends. They have asked, in lieu of flowers or other gifts, that donations please be made to Paul's charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW)."

Universal has shut down production of Fast and Furious 7, which Walker had been filming in Atlanta before the crash, "for a period of time" as the studio wants to assess the options for moving forward with the franchise.
