“He was just awesome.”

That’s how Cody Walker described his big brother Paul Walker in an emotional interview on Friday to talk about the late actor’s charity organization Reach Out Worldwide and his upcoming film Brick Mansions. Walker held back tears when talking with Baltimore Fox TV affiliate anchor Candace Dold about his brother’s legacy after the tragic car accident that killed him and his friend Roger Rodas last November.

Cody and brother Caleb are currently both standing-in for Paul to help complete Fast and Furious 7. Last week, Vin Diesel posted a photo on set with Paul’s brother and  an emotional tribute of his own. As for Paul’s latest film which opens this weekend, Cody said that “it’s cool to see him having fun.” Watch the interview below:
