Fast & Furious Cast: Where Are They Now?
Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto
Fast & Furious is the fourth film in the franchise, though as reviews noted when it hit theaters on April 3, 2009, it was the first real sequel, reuniting the original cast, led by action star Diesel. He reprised his role as Dominic Toretto, a bad guy turned maybe okay guy out to avenge the death of his girlfriend, Michelle Rodriguez's Letty Ortiz.
Since then, he's appeared in the rest of the Fast and the Furious films, and is signed on for the upcoming ninth and tenth installments — the last in the series. He's also voiced Groot and Baby Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, and starred in three of the four xXx movies. Off-screen — when he's not feuding with his costars — he is a doting dad and budding singer/rapper.
Paul Walker as Brian O'Conner
The dreamy FBI agent returned in the fourth film, though unlike Diesel, he appeared in the second, too. By the end of the film he resigned from the FBI, and went on to star in the franchise's next three franchises.
Sadly, Walker died at age 40 in 2013 after a car he was riding in crashed during an event in Valencia, California. In the years since his death, the actor — a devoted father and activist — has often been remembered in touching tributes by his costars.
Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz
Rodriguez also made Fast & Furious her second go-round; though the film's plot centered on her murder, she was back for the sixth, seventh and eighth films in the franchise.
She's since spoken out about her dissatisfaction with how the series portrays women, and hasn't signed on for the final two films. She has kept busy, though; after Fast & Furious she joined the cast of Lost, and last appeared in 2018's Widows alongside Viola Davis and Liam Neeson.
Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto
As Dominic's little sister, Brewster has starred in almost all of the Fast and the Furious films, including the 2009 installment, in which she broke the news of Letty's murder to her big bro and continued her romance with Brian.
Outside of the franchise she's been busy, starring in the Dallas reboot, Secrets and Lies and Lethal Weapon, plus in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story as Denise Brown. She's also a mom to two young boys, Rowan and Julian, with husband Andrew Form.
John Ortiz as Arturo Braga/Ramon Campos
As drug lord Braga, a.k.a. Campos, Ortiz reprised his role in Fast & Furious 6. He's also known for his work in Jack Goes Boating, Silver Linings Playbook and Bumblebee, plus the TV series Luck and Rake.
Off-screen, he oversees New York City's LAByrinth Theater Company, an Off-Broadway organization he ran with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. He's married with one child.
Gal Gadot as Gisele Yashar
Fast & Furious was Gadot's first American film, and her character Gisele, who works for Braga, stuck around for three more films after joining the franchise.
Of course her most famous role is that of Wonder Woman, whom she's now played in four different films (plus one on the way). The former Miss Israel is married to Yaron Varsano and has two young daughters.
Laz Alonso as Fenix Calderon
Another member of Braga's squad, Alonso's Fenix met his end in Fast & Furious. But that same year, Alonso appeared in Avatar, and has since gone on to TV work on shows like Breakout Kings, Deception and The Mysteries of Laura.
