Paul Walker's father has said the star's brothers were the perfect replacement for the late actor in 'Furious 7' because they are so similar to him

Paul Walker's brothers are "chipped from the same brick".

The siblings of the late actor - who was killed in a car accident last November, aged 40 - stepped in to replace the star in the seventh instalment of the 'Fast & Furious' franchise following his death, with his dad, Paul Walker III, claiming they were the obvious choice to do their brother justice because they are so similar.

Discussing the conversations between him and his sons Caleb and Cody Walker, he admitted: "They said, 'Dad, these people really loved Paul!' And I said, 'Yeah, now they love you. You're the same,'

"They're the same as Paul. They're all chipped from the same brick."

Paul - who starred as Brian O'Conner in the franchise - had featured in all six films as well as parts of the seventh, with his father revealing he often told stories about the cast and crew including Michelle Rodriguez and Vin Diesel, who he had grown close to since the first movie was released in 2001.

He said: "Michelle Rodriguez he said was the most fun person to go out on the town with,"

Talking to ETOnline, he added: "I don't think Vin realized how highly Paul thought of him,"

'Furious 7' will be released in cinemas in April 2015.
