Rodriguez: Fast And Furious 7 tough

Michelle Rodriguez has said shooting Fast And Furious 7 was 'rough'

Michelle Rodriguez has called Fast And Furious 7 "the roughest shoot" for herself, her co-stars and crew.

The Avatar actress stars in the film franchise's latest instalment with Vin Diesel, and paid tribute to their late co-star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash when shooting on the movie was already under way.

According to The Wrap, Michelle marked the end of filming by posting a photo on Facebook of herself and Vin in a car, captioned: "15 years later Ride or Die through thick and thin we finally finished the hardest emotional roller coaster, #FF7. Hope to make you proud P, love you."

She also posted: "One love to a crew and cast that endured most likely the roughest shoot in their careers. A labour done with love and respect for a legacy that will live on long after we're gone."

Paul had starred in previous Fast And Furious films and his role in the seventh film was completed through a process of using computer-generated face replacement technology, with his brothers Cody and Caleb as well as an actor standing in for scenes that needed to have a moving actor involved.

Fast And Furious 7 is due to be released in cinemas on April 10, 2015.
