Evans: Walker 'warm and humble'

Luke Evans has paid tribute to his Fast And Furious co-star Paul Walker as "a very warm and humble human being".

Paul was killed in car crash in Valencia, California on November 30 and the Welsh star revealed his grief over the loss of his colleague.

Paul played Brian O'Conner in the hit franchise, while Luke joined the cast as Shaw in Fast And Furious 6.

Speaking at the world premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in Los Angeles, Luke said: "It's a sad, sad story and I'm still coming to terms with it myself, I am just trying to remember all the great memories of working with him and how lovely he actually he was."

He added: "He was a very warm and humble human being and he was loved by a lot of people and he will be missed by a huge amount of people."

Only God Forgives star Luke will next be seen on the big screen as Bard the Bowman in the second instalment of Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy and he said taking on the role was an honour.

"I knew I would be the first person to put a face to Bard the Bowman, it's a lot of pressure and a responsibility but a nice responsibility. I have brought a literary figure to life and that's a lovely thing to know and he will always be mine, which is great."

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug will be in cinemas on December 13.
