Dec. 2 (UPI) --
Though most of Paul Walker
's Fast & Furious
costars were quick to pay tribute
to their fallen friend shortly after his death on Saturday
, Michelle Rodriguez
waited a little longer to express her grief on social media.
The 35-year-old actress, who plays Letty in the popular action franchise, posted a brief and touching message on Facebook and Twitter on Monday.
"I'm gonna carry this torch for you brother, with a forced smile on my face and Im gonna open my heart just cause your telling me to," she wrote.
Rodriguez also changed her Facebook and Twitter profiles in support of Reach Out World Wide, the relief organization founded by the late actor.
