Tyrese Gibson has revealed that filming the remainder of Fast And Furious 7 without Paul Walker will be "rough".

Shooting on the seventh instalment has been put on hold following the actor's death on November 30.

Tyrese, who plays car thief Roman Pearce in the series, predicted the cast will support each other, telling Access Hollywood: "We all miss Paul. I'm still messed up about the whole situation but that's my brother, and we're family, so we're going to keep it rocking.

"It's probably going to be a rough couple of days because we're not going to look to the left or right and see our brother but he's there in spirit."

The 35-year-old singer-actor said he knows how Paul's character Brian O'Conner will be written out, but is remaining tight-lipped.

"I do, but I can't go into it. I can't speak on nothing. It's all being figured out. It's an uncomfortable process but it's all being figured out," he said.

Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Ludacris, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster will reprise their roles for Fast And Furious 7, alongside Jason Statham, Kurt Russell and Djimon Hounsou. The film, directed by James Wan, will be released in April 2015.

Tyrese also hinted that the Fast And Furious franchise could continue for further films, with another two already planned.

"We're inspired to keep the franchise going. Paul would want us to keep it going and we just hope the fans continue to show up," he said.
