In a new interview, Paul Walker‘s brothers, Caleb and Cody, recently opened up about how filming Furious 7 helped their grieving process. 

“We got to understand more about Paul, and what he was all about,” Caleb told ET. “We had to share Paul with a lot of people, in a weird way. He was gone a lot, he was filming, so we missed him. Sometimes at the holidays he wasn’t always there, you know? He tried. We’d see him on set, we visited a few times, but to kind of get that closure, and understanding [of] Paul was really special.”

After Paul died in a car accident in 2013, Caleb and Cody stepped in to help finish filming the actor’s scenes in Furious 7. Cody told PEOPLE of the shoot at the movie’s premiere, “It’s bittersweet, but I think Paul would be proud.”

“Vin’s like the godfather, he really is,” Caleb added. “We were able to learn some things through Vin, Tyrese [Gibson], Ludacris, Michelle [Rodriguez], Jordana [Brewster]. They all had some really cool stories about him. So, to kind of get that closer and understanding of Paul was really special.”
