I still can't believe my brother is dead - Cody

AN emotional Cody Walker says the death of his brother Paul still doesn't feel real.

The 40-year-old Fast and Furious star (below) was killed in a car crash on November 30.

Since then, 25-year-old Cody has helped complete his brother's role in the latest "Furious" feature, and even moved from Oregon to California to work on Paul's non-profit organisation.

Nevertheless, promoting the charity and discussing his brother's last completed movie, Brick Mansions, has proved too much, too soon.

"Right now, a whole lot of time has not gone by yet," Cody said.

"It still doesn't feel real, because sometimes, working in this industry, making films, he'd be away from his family three, four, six months at a time, you know. And my only interaction would be a phone call. So, I know it's going to take a while."

DEMANDING

Cody and brother Caleb (36) – recently worked on the set of Fast and Furious 7, which will be released on April 10, 2015.

Cody recalled Paul's demanding action role in Brick Mansions, released this weekend.

"Paul had been training in martial arts for many, many years. Brazilian jujitsu was his choice," he said. Everyone's so used to seeing Paul behind the wheel of a car all the time, and not really seeing that part of him."

Cody recently took on the role of brand manager of Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW), a non-profit disaster-relief organisation founded by Paul in 2010.
