Vin Diesel wasn’t the center of attention, for once, at a big premiere. The movie star accompanied his 11-year-old daughter as she is starring in Netflix’s new animated spinoff of the “Fast & Furious” franchise.
Similce Diesel was winter chic as she arrived Saturday evening for the premiere of “Fast And Furious: Spy Racers” at Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk. The young star was fashionable and warm in a long dark jacket with white sunbursts and complimented the look with a trendy pair of combat boots.
Vin dressed to match his daughter, wearing an all-black outfit, including a leather jacket. The “Fast & Furious” star was ok with playing his daughter’s hypeman and was even photographed leaning in to give her a proud kiss on the forehead for all her success.
“Teen Wolf” star Tyler Posey is headlining the cast as Tony, the cousin of Vin’s famed character, Dominic Toretto.
According to EW:
“Spy Racers follows the adventures of teenager Tony, who follows in his cousin’s footsteps when a government agency recruits he and his friends to infiltrate an elite racing league that is a front for a crime organization bent on world domination.”
In “Spy Racers,” Similce will voice the character of Sissy, the little sister to 13-year-old tech genius Frostee Benson.
Vin will also serve as an executive producer on the show. It’s scheduled for a December 26 premiere on Netflix, which producers hope will help launch “Fast & Furious 9” when it hits theaters in May 2020.
Tyler Posey had a lot to celebrate at the premiere of his new show, because he also revealed that he’s single and enjoying life. The “Teen Wolf” star had been in a relationship with actress Sophia Ali since 2017 after meeting on the set of “Truth or Dare,” but they apparently split earlier this year.
While walking the red carpet, Posey told US Weekly:
“I don’t have a girlfriend. I’m focused on work and just myself.”
Posey admitted, “I kind of mess relationships up sometimes” and said, “I don’t know if I’m meant for them.” Posey also said that he was very happy with the way his personal life was going.
Hania “Similce” Riley Sinclair was born in 2008 to Vin Diesel and his wife, Paloma Jiménez. She’s obviously extremely close with her parents and has grown up watching her daddy on the sets of “Fast & Furious.” Back in April, the star posted about his daughter’s 11th birthday.
“The Alpha Angel turns eleven today… Proudest father in the world. All love, always!” he wrote alongside a cute photo of the two.
Not only was Similce close to her father’s “Fast & Furious” co-star Paul Walker while she was growing up, but she has formed a close friendship with his daughter, Meadow Walker. “With my angel,” Meadow wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her and Similce.
On Meadow’s 21st birthday earlier this month, Vin Diesel paid tribute to the daughter of his late best friend with an emotional social media post.
“I could say that I am so proud of the person you are becoming… but the truth is I have always been proud of you. Happy Birthday Meadow! I know it’s your 21st and you wanted to go big in Japan, but the family has a cake waiting for you when you get home, so hurry. Love you kid. Uncle Vin.”
Diesel is also father to 9-year-old Vincent Sinclair and 4-year-old Pauline who’s named after Walker.
