However, the late actor's character will subsequently retire in "Fast & Furious 7," reported Hollywood Life Walker has reportedly filmed numerous scenes in multiple locations, including Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and Bloor St, Toronto, Canada.
The sudden death of Walker in the car-accident in Santa Clarita, California on 30 November 2013 left an irreparable void in many and there was much fear that "Fast & Furious 7" would be incomplete without the star.
