Description

Making a movie is hard, but it's a whole lot harder when an actor dies in the middle of filming. How does a cast and crew handle such a shocking event? In all sorts of ways, as it turns out. These are the actors who died mid-production, and the way their movies coped.

Even though Paul Walker made a name for himself in Hollywood with roles in films like Varsity Blues and Eight Below, his performance as Brian O'Conner in the Fast and Furious franchise made him an international superstar.

Revving up with The Fast and the Furious opposite Vin Diesel in 2001, the duo's hot rod franchise ascended into the stratosphere at top speed. All told, the franchise has raked in a whopping $5.8 billion.

Filming was already underway for Furious 7 when Walker, 40, and his racing partner, Roger Rodas, 38, died in a horrific crash of Walker's Porsche, which Rodas was driving.

Production of the film came to a halt until Universal Pictures could talk with members of Walker's family, who eventually gave filmmakers the go-ahead to find a way to wrap up Brian's storyline.

As a result, Walker's likeness and actions were recreated with the aid of his brothers, Caleb and Cody, among others. Furious 7 became the first film in the Fast and Furious franchise to cross the billion-dollar mark at the international box office, amassing a mammoth take of more than $1.5 billion.
