20 Of Brian O’Conner’s Best Quotes From The Fast And The Furious Franchise

Though Dominic Toretto is the face of the Fast & Furious franchise, most of the best one-liners and dialogue are Brian O’Conner quotes. There’s no doubt that Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) was the heart of the series, and from the moment he was introduced, Brian had a way of making others feel at ease. Not only did he form lifelong friendships with Dom’s crew but his cheery disposition seemed to make them laugh too. Most of all, the best thing about Brian was his humor and one-liners. While Brian was capable of offering some sage or romantic advice, he also provided many moments of comic relief.

Those moments worked effectively after periods of drama and action, and long after this film series ends, Brian O’Conner will be remembered fondly for his presence and his iconic one-liners. Although Walker passed away in 2013, not a day goes by where the legacy he left on the franchise isn’t thought about. While Paul Walker appeared in other movies, including She’s All That, it’s his role as Brian that everyone remembers the most as it felt the most natural and authentic (especially since Walker was known to be a prankster). While his presence is certainly missed, his scenes and the humorous Brian O’Conner quotes are unforgettable.

After departing L.A. at the end of The Fast and the Furious, Brian attempted to flee from the police. However, they quickly tracked him to Miami, where the police ended up recruiting him to take down a drug lord. The force tried to team Brian up with Agent Dunn, who happened to be drinking a soda with a pizza place’s logo on the cup. To win the argument that he should get to choose his own partner, Brian asked Dunn, “Can you tell me what would be a better motor for my Skyline. A Gallo 12 or a Gallo 24?” and Dunn hilariously responded as confidently but stupidly as possible.

19 “2206. I Crashed One Of Those.”
Fast & Furious

Brian driving a blue and silver Nissan Skyline in 2 Fast 2 Furious

This line is a fun callback to 2 Fast 2 Furious, as Brian crashed a Nissan Skyline in a police chase. Brian adds, “I want them all” when having to choose which Nissan Skyline to use for his mission in the fourth movie. The Skyline has become one of the most iconic cars of the entire franchise to the point where a Skyline even appeared at the end of F9 to hint at Brian’s arrival at the BBQ. A short film that fills in the gaps between the first two movies, The Turbo-Charged Prelude for 2 Fast 2 Furious, even chronicles how Brian ended up owning the Nissan Skyline.

18 “Yeah, Your Broke Ass Got A Hundred Grand.”
Fast Five

In Fast Five, for the bank heist to go perfectly, the crew has to steal a group of Dodge Charger police cars. While racing them would likely draw unwanted attention to them, and wouldn’t be a Fast & Furious movie without one. Roman suggests each of them bet a hundred grand, to which Brian responds with this typical jab, which is a testament to how great Brian and Roman’s banter has always been. It’s one of the best Brian O’Conner quotes, but it still doesn’t answer who won the Fast Five race, as it isn’t clear whether or not Dom did let Brian win.

17 “But If I Win, I Take The Cash, And I Take The Respect. To Some People, That’s More Important.”
The Fast And The Furious

Brian was tasked with infiltrating Dom’s crime network and gaining Dom’s trust, and he did so in the smartest way possible. The undercover cop knew that somebody who cares more about money than dignity and respect couldn’t possibly become part of Dom’s crew. This line of dialogue is something that both characters live by, and it’s the very line that made Dom sit up attentively and finally pay attention to Brian. It’s one of the best Brian O’Conner quotes simply because it’s the line that essentially started one of the greatest friendships of any action franchise.

16 “That’s The Brian O’Conner Driving School Right There, Baby!”
2 Fast 2 Furious

After Brian had gotten authorization to take find his own partner for the undercover job, he chose Roman. Brian and Roman had been childhood best friends, who had lost touch when Brian became a cop, but it didn’t start to become clear how close they used to be until Carter’s initiation test when they’re sent to retrieve a cigar cutter from an impound lot. This sequence showed how much of a bond the two characters really have and how much history they have. Along with the “stare and drive” earlier in the morning, they were teaching each other these tricks, but nothing beats the Brian O’Conner driving school.

15 “You Asked Me Why I Let Dom Go. I Did It Because, At That Moment, I Respected Him More Than I Respected Myself.”
Fast & Furious

Mia sits on Brian’s lap in Fast and Furious

After Brian lets Dom escape at the end of The Fast and the Furious, one question that had plagued Mia’s mind was why he let her brother go. While Brian insisted that he didn’t know the reason, he later told Mia that it was because he had lost respect for himself for tearing the Toretto family apart. During his undercover stint, Brian discovered a lot about the Torettos. However, the biggest life lesson that he took away from the operation was that the world wasn’t as black-and-white as he believed. Dom may have committed some huge crimes, but he had done it all to provide for his family.

14 “Yeah Rome, How Do You Like Them Apples?”
2 Fast 2 Furious

Roman and Brian argue outside a police station in 2 Fast 2 Furious

Another one-liner from the initiation test, one of the best scenes in 2 Fast 2 Furious, really cemented the fact that Roman and Brian had a sibling-like bond. They were both extremely competitive when racing and would playfully taunt and insult each other. It was as if they were trying to lift each other’s spirits, pushing one another to be better. This encouragement and competitiveness were definitely seen in future films. It also showed how great of a driver Brian really was, as he yelled the dialogue while speeding backward on a busy highway and holding up his middle finger out of the window.

13 “First Bite. He’s Got Grace. House Rules, Man. House Rules.”
Fast & Furious 6

Dom and the crew having a a BBQ in the yard in The Fast and the Furious

Although Brian may have relaxed a little when it came to the rules, there were some that he refused to compromise on. One of those was saying grace before every meal, in which a member of Dom’s crew blessed the food they were to eat by praying to the “car gods.” While this was something that Brian hadn’t done previously, the fact that he remembered such an important detail proved how much he valued the Toretto family and their traditions. The line also seemed to imply that he would never betray the Torettos and their crew ever again – cementing him forever as an honorary member of the family.

12 “Yeah, That Sounds Like A Real Hero.”
Fast Five

Dom and Brian looking to the distance in Fast Five.

When Hobbs appears in Fast Five to arrest Brian and Dom, it doesn’t exactly go as planned. Hobbs announces he’s just there to bring in two a**holes whose names appeared on his desk, to which Brian responds with the above quote. Considering how Brian’s character arc began, he’s taking a jibe at himself for going through a similar experience, as Brian had also been in Hobbs’ position once before, which makes it one of the best Brian O’Conner quotes. The dialogue essentially foreshadowed that the judgmental Hobbs would go through a similar journey to Brian and come to the same realization that the “law” isn’t always on the right side.

11 “You Know, The Best Decision I Ever Made Was Stepping Into That Store And Buying That First Sandwich.”
Furious 7

Brian looks serious in Furious 7

While the Fast & Furious franchise is mainly known to all for its gravity-defying stunts and iconic fight sequences, there has always been one underrated element – the romances. Ever since the first movie, fans have always been invested in Mia and Brian’s relationship as they instantly fell for one another. That culminated in the phone conversation at the end of Furious 7. Since Mia spent the majority of the movie worrying about whether she and their family would ever be enough for Brian, his response was perfectly sweet and romantic. Their story may have started with Brian investigating Dom, but Brian ultimately stuck around for Mia.

10 “The Air Quality Here Is Lousy, The Traffic Is Bad, But I Think You’ll Learn To Like This Place.”
Fast & Furious 6

Mia and Brian try to get off the plane in Fast & Furious 6

If there was one Brian O’Conner quote that would perfectly summarize his story in the franchise, it was his final few lines in Fast and Furious 6. When Brian first arrived in Los Angeles, he had no intention of sticking around as nothing was keeping him there. However, this all changed for him when he got to know the Torettos and their crew. forming a romance with Mia and finding a brother in Dom. Brian essentially found the family he had always dreamed of in them. While their situation didn’t exactly have a perfect start, Brian wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.

9 “Dude I Almost Had You!”
The Fast And The Furious

Brian didn’t know what he was doing quite yet, but it was still impressive that he could keep up with Dom and the team the way he did. His first street race against Dom didn’t exactly go his way, and he did a number on his car in the process, but he was still happy that he came as close as he did. For a first-timer, Brian’s not half bad. Dom didn’t quite see it that way as he insulted Brian to no end, but it did establish that level of competitiveness between the two that lasted throughout the franchise, making it one of the best Brian O’Conner quotes.

8 “I Like The Tuna Here.”
The Fast And The Furious

Mia on a date with Brian in The Fast and the Furious

Brian’s love of tuna lands him in a brawl with Vince, which has to be broken up by Dom. Still, it’s Brian’s first real impression on Dom and the team, and though it wasn’t necessarily the best one, it led to bigger things. Audiences are convinced it wasn’t just the tuna, but Mia that kept Brian coming back, particularly since everyone insisted that the tuna was terrible, even the owners of Toretto’s Market. This led to the Toretto family further ridiculing Brian about eating the awful sandwiches just to get closer to Mia.

7 “Hey! We Do What We Do Best. We Improvise, All Right?”
Fast & Furious 6

Brian driving the blue Nissan in Fast and the Furious

Considering that Dom’s crew has created some of the worst plans in the Fast & Furious franchise, it isn’t surprising that some things haven’t gone as expected. This was the case in Fast & Furious 6 when Dom and his crew were surprised to see a big tank chasing them down the highway. While Tej and Roman were panicking, Brian reassured them that they just needed to readjust their plan. This was only one of the things that fans loved about Brian. No matter how out of control things got, Brian would always reassure the crew that there would always be another way to get things back on track.

6 “You Know I Woulda, I Woulda Won That Race If You Didn’t Cheat, Right?”
Fast & Furious

Dom and Brian’s rivalry in Fast & Furious has always been the best element, so it’s hardly surprising that the fourth movie bringing the two back together was its biggest selling point. The two typically resumed their rivalry when they entered a street race. Dom won the race with Brian always insisting that he would have won if Dom hadn’t have “cheated.” However, what makes this moment even more special is that this marks the beginning of a running gag. After this, Brian did whatever he could to get that rematch against Dom and prove that he could beat them. The dialogue proved that Dom and Brian were best friends.

5 “If You Want The Career-Changing Big Fish, You Gotta Be Willing To […] Sail Out To The Deep Water.”
Fast & Furious

Brian and Dom walk through a parking lot in Fast & Furious

In Fast & Furious 6, Brian hands out some sage advice. People have to be willing to grow up and make big sacrifices, not just as a means to an end, but to achieve an ultimate goal and get to the destination they’re heading for in life. If they don’t, they won’t get there. This isn’t just an empty quote, it’s something that Brian actually lives by, and he’s speaking from past experience. Brian gave up his life as an FBI agent, and in return, he gained a family. He also gave up the adrenaline-fueled lifestyle that he loved so much so he could lead a happier home life.

4 “When You Blew Up Your Car, That Means You Blew Up Mine Too […] So Now You Owe Me A Ten-Second Car.”
Fast & Furious

It was brilliant how this memorable storyline from the first film made a reappearance in the fourth film in 2009, eight years later. In a reverse situation, now Dom owes Brian a ten-second car, which he quickly remedied by breaking into a Subaru. It’s funny how things work out like that, especially when it playfully turns the tables on one of the best Brian O’Conner quotes. Fast & Furious was a big deal given that Letty was killed and that it brought the old gang back together. Something about owing people ten-second cars is like holding a precious bond in the Fast and Furious franchise.

3 “Dom, Cars Don’t Fly. Cars Don’t Fly! Sh**!”
Furious 7

Dom and Brian standing next to a red supercar in Furious 7

Furious 7 had a lot of memorable moments, and the most stand-out action sequence is undoubtedly the one in Dubai. Dom and Brian fly through the sky, smashing through not just one, but two buildings. The first building was on purpose, but the second was because the brakes had gone out, and thus Dom simply sped up and jumped into the next one. The two manage to escape miraculously unscathed, but with a memorable story to tell. Dom proved Brian and every other naysayer wrong– cars can fly if driven correctly.

2 “I Owe You A Ten-Second Car.”
The Fast And The Furious

Dom and Brian look concerned after surviving a car crash in The Fast and the Furious

The conclusion of the first movie ends with one of the best Brian O’Conner quotes after Brian hands over the keys to his car, allowing Dom to escape. When Dom questions if Brian realizes what he’s doing, this is Brian’s response. Brian’s loyalty has changed over the course of his undercover work, and he’s befriended Dom and his team, forever changing his life–and theirs. Allowing Dom to escape was Brian’s redemption, in a way, for lying to Dom, even knowing he’ll be faced with serious consequences. That’s what family does though, and if any theme stands out in this franchise, it’s the importance of family.

1 “Thought You Could Leave Without Saying Goodbye?”
Furious 7

Brian and Dom looking at each other from their cars in Furious 7

In the final scene of Furious 7, Dom and Brian face off against one another in one last race. Dom had left early, but Brian had followed and said the quote above. It’s one of the most rewatchable Fast & Furious scenes, as it was a meaningful and perfect send-off for Brian in more ways than one. Since Walker had passed away in real life during Furious 7’s production, the movie felt like an homage to him, acting as a means for the audience, cast, crew, and Paul’s loved ones to say goodbye. It was the perfect ending and the perfect way to bid a beloved character and actor farewell.

The 69-Year Story Behind The Fast And Furious Name


The Fast & Furious franchise started with the 2001 movie The Fast and the Furious and went through several major changes in its sequel titles. The title for the original movie was almost different, with options like Race Wars, but the producer fought for The Fast and the Furious.

As the Fast & Furious series has one of the most recognizable franchise names in cinema, some may be curious as to where its origin came from. The multi-billion-dollar franchise started with 2001’s straightforward street racing movie, The Fast and the Furious, but following that, the series went through several major changes, and that was mirrored in the Fast & Furious sequel movie titles. 2 Fast 2 Furious introduced numbered titles, then The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift immediately dropped that format. The fourquel confused things further with the title Fast & Furious, and it only got more confusing from there. However, every title is still a play on the original 2001 title.

The Fast and the Furious came to fruition following a Vibe magazine article called “Racer X”. Universal had the incredible foresight of seeing how popular street racing would become in the 2000s, and the studio quickly grabbed the movie rights to the article. However, while the movie was originally titled after the article, the studio wasn’t totally satisfied with that name, and many other titles, including Race Wars, were considered. The movie even went into production under the title Redline, but producer Neal Moritz had his mind set on one title that seemed unachievable to get; The Fast and the Furious.

The Fast And The Furious Is Named After A 1954 Movie
Dom and Brian sitting on a car with their friends in The Fast and the Furious

Another movie titled The Fast and the Furious already existed, and it was released almost half a century before the 2001 street racing film was released. 1954’s The Fast and the Furious, written by Roger Corman, has nothing to do with street racing as it exists today. The movie follows a prison escapee who kidnaps a rich woman and steals her Jaguar, then ends up in an epic road race that ends in Mexico. While the title perfectly fits the 1954 film, Moritz was desperate to use the title for his own movie that he was producing, having learned about it after seeing a Roger Corman documentary (via Entertainment Weekly).

Moritz detailed how Universal didn’t seem to be completely on board at first. The producer explained, “I called up the head of marketing at Universal the next morning and said ‘Okay, I’ve got the title: The Fast and the Furious!’ And there was just silence on the other end. I was like, ‘Oh, I guess that is the worst title he’s ever heard.’ However, after mulling it over, Universal agreed, and it worked out perfectly, as the whole world now knows that name and it’s synonymous with the Vin Diesel-led franchise. Movie titles are extremely important, and it’s less likely that the movie would have become a billion-dollar franchise if it was titled Race Wars.

Paul Walker smiles in Dom's garage in The Fast and the Furious

Moritz revealed, “we made a deal with Roger to give him the use of some stock footage that Universal owned.” It isn’t clear if Corman ever benefited financially from that footage. In hindsight, he undoubtedly got a terrible deal. The Fast & Furious name is extremely important to the franchise and has made Universal billions. The name has even been used for spinoffs, and Fast & Furious Present: Hobbs & Shaw wouldn’t have made $760 million without the name attached to it. However, there was no knowing how huge the franchise became. After all, The Fast and the Furious was originally just a scrappy crime movie based on a magazine article.

Fast X Video Reveals BTS Of Real, Practical Fights In OTT Sequel


The Fast X fight between Letty and Cipher was filmed using practical effects, resulting in a well-choreographed hand-to-hand combat sequence full of emotions. Cipher’s decision to team up with Dom and “La Familia” was out of necessity, but spending time with Letty after escaping prison could lead to her becoming a member of the family. Cipher’s unexplored history with Giselle and her association with Letty could help in mellowing down the former villain and potentially setting up a redemption arc or even a Cipher spin-off.

A new Fast X behind-the-scenes video shows how Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Cipher’s (Charlize Theron) intense fight scene was filmed. Dom and his “La Familia” returned on the big screen in 2023 for the tenth main installment of The Fast Saga. In a major twist, however, instead of butting heads again with Cipher, the primary villain of the franchise for several recent entries, Letty had to team up with her. That didn’t stop Letty from expressing her true feelings about her when they were both captured by the Agency.

Courtesy of Collider is a behind-the-scenes clip from Louis Leterrier’s Fast X that offers a look at how Cipher and Letty’s one-on-one fight scene was filmed. Check out the video below:

The Fast X fight is arguably one of the best choreographed hand-to-hand combat in The Fast Saga, and it’s all because they filmed it with practical effects. The result, coupled with the history between the pair, is an effective action sequence full of emotions.

How Cipher & Letty’s Relationship Evolves In Fast & Furious 11
Cipher wearing a coat in Fast X

Granted that Cipher’s decision to team up with Dom and “La Familia” came from necessity after she was targeted by Jason Momoa’s Dante, spending more time with Letty after escaping prison can lead to her becoming a proper member of “La Familia.” There’s precedent to this, with a few of the recent The Fast Saga villains ending up being redeemed and joining Dom and his crew. This has been the case with Deckard Shaw (despite his attempted murder of Han Lue), and more recently, John Cena’s Jakob, who sacrificed himself in Fast X to save Little B.

Increasing the chances of this happening is Cipher’s unexplored history with Giselle. After she and Letty finally escaped the Agency’s bunk prison, they found themselves in the middle of nowhere. Thankfully, Giselle came to the rescue after Cipher notified her of their escape plan. There has never been any indication that Cipher and Giselle know each other before the massive Fast X twist. Making this more surprising is that Giselle has been believed to be dead for several years now. Her association with Giselle could help Letty mellow down on the former villain when they all return for Fast and Furious 11.

Perhaps, this unexpected turn could be a set-up for the in-development Cipher spin-off. Specific plot details about the project are currently scant, with Universal still not announcing a tentative release date. Nevertheless, the events of Fast X could be the start of her redemption arc, with her relationship with Letty functioning as a barometer of whether viewers can finally forgive her for all of her transgressions.

10 Characters Who Should Be In It


Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty is the franchise’s biggest female character and the obvious pick to lead the all-female spinoff. Jordana Brewster’s Mia deserves a big role in the spinoff to expand on her character and showcase her growth. Brie Larson’s Tess is needed in the spinoff to explore the mystery surrounding her character and add her engaging screen presence to the team.

The Fast & Furious saga is meant to continue with an all-female-led movie, and casting the returning characters presents exciting options. An all-female spinoff could be the perfect way to continue the Fast &Furious story, as it will be able to retain the elements of the franchise that make it iconic while offering a new perspective. From the beginning, the franchise has been very male-dominated, and told male-centric stories, so offering the high-octane thrills of a Fast & Furious movie from a female perspective could be a welcome change of pace.

The series is known for having an all-star cast, so any female spinoff will have to match the previous films. Thankfully, the franchise already has several incredible female movie stars. Fast X, the latest film in the franchise, introduced and reintroduced some exciting female characters, setting the groundwork for the upcoming Fast & Furious movie. Obviously, whatever happens in the next film will determine who will be on the team and what side they will fight for. The franchise already has a healthy supply of female characters, both good and evil, who can factor into a Fast & Furious female spinoff.


Related Fast X Proves How Great A Fast & Furious Female Spinoff Would Be The idea of an all-female spinoff is more exciting than Fast & Furious 11, with Fast X providing the blueprint for just how well it could work.

10 Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty Can Lead The Fast Spinoff Ensemble
She’s the franchise’s biggest female character

Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty has been a key member of the Fast family since the first movie, and no female spinoff would feel right without her leading the team. Dominic Toretto’s wife is one of the fastest drivers in the world. Letty has made her way from street racer to international woman of mystery, becoming one of the franchise’s best characters in the process. Rodriguez is an incredibly engaging screen presence thanks to her charisma and action pedigree. An all-female action movie is right in her wheelhouse, making her the obvious pick for the lead in the movie.

9 Jordana Brewster’s Mia Deserves A Big Role
The Toretto family member has been sidelined recently

Another extension of the Toretto family tree, Jordana Brewster’s Mia is Dom’s brother and the wife of Paul Walker’s Brian. Since Walker’s tragic death, as well as the introduction of countless new characters, Mia has been sidelined in recent films, which is a shame because she is one of the best parts of the earlier films. A spinoff with just the women could be a great time to expand on Mia’s character and see how she has grown over the past couple of years, especially now that she is the mother of two. Brewster is an underrated talent, and Mia should be heavily involved in whatever spinoff the filmmakers plan.

8 Brie Larson’s Tess Is Needed After Fast X Introduction
Mr. Nobody’s daughter has a bright future
Brie Larson as Tess firing a gun in Fast X

Fast X introduced several new faces to the franchise, but perhaps most notably was Brie Larson as Tess “Nobody”, a secret agent on a quest to protect Dom and his family. Larson had relatively little screen time in the movie, and her introduction felt like it was mostly included to set up a future spinoff. The Oscar winner is the perfect name to include in a spinoff. Larson is an incredibly engaging and vulnerable screen presence and a great addition to the team. As her family name would imply, there is still a lot of mystery about Tess that this spinoff could explore.

7 Ramsey’s Return Can Give Nathalie Emmanuel A Major Role
The hacker has a growing set of skills
Nathalie Emmanuel in Fast and Furious 7.

After her first appearance in Furious 7, Nathalie Emmanuel’s Ramsey has been the Fast team’s resident hacker and tech wiz. The Game of Thrones star has mostly been used for exposition and comic relief since joining the team, but Ramsey has a distinctive style and skill set that would make her a great addition to the female spinoff. While Mia and Letty are great drivers, Ramsey has skills in the digital realm that could help the team on whatever mission they are on. It would also be interesting to see how Ramsey functions outside the trio of her, Tej, and Roman.

6 Daniela Melchior’s Return As Isabel Gives The Spinoff More Legacy

Isabel (Daniela Melchior) in a car at a street race in Fast X

For a while, Elsa Pataky’s Elena was viewed as an obvious candidate to appear in a Fast & Furious female spinoff. However, after her untimely demise in The Fate of the Furious, her younger sister can fill that void. Another new female protagonist introduced in Fast X, Daniela Melchior’s Isabel also felt like she was included mostly to set up this future spinoff. Melchior is one of the more promising young actors to pop up this decade, and her work in The Suicide Squad proves she is more than ready to have a large part in a team-up action movie.

5 Gal Gadot’s Place In The Fast Spinoff As Gisele Is Likely
Fast X confirmed Gisele is still alive

Gal Gadot made her return to Fast and Furious in the final moments of Fast X’s ending, which confirmed that Gisele is alive after Fast & Furious 6. The character’s return had been speculated for a long time, and audiences should see much more of her now that her fate is confirmed. A Fast & Furious female spinoff can answer lingering questions about Gisele’s life, such as how she survived falling from a plane or what she’s been doing for the last several years. The movie can also finally give Gisele a prominent role in the franchise once again.

4 Charlize Theron’s Cipher Could Play Both Sides In The Spinoff
The franchise’s villain is not to be trusted

In both The Fate of the Furious and F9: The Fast Saga, Charlize Theron’s Cipher served as the franchise’s primary antagonist. While Fast X puts her allegiance into question, she is still one of the best villains in all of Fast and Furious and would make an excellent baddie for the all-women team to go up against. While Cipher could be a reluctant ally to the team, Theron is just much more fun hamming it up as the bad guy, and the film could serve as a fitting conclusion to her movie-spanning scheme.

3 Eva Mendes Can Return As Monica Fuentes At Long Last
She hasn’t been seen since Fast Five
Monica Fuentes pointing a rifle in 2 Fast 2 Furious.

The Fast & Furious female spinoff would also be a great opportunity to finally bring back Eva Mendes as Monica Fuentes. Following her debut in 2 Fast 2 Furious, she returned briefly in Fast Five’s post-credits scene. Eva Mendes has since mostly retired from acting, leaving audiences without a chance to see Monica’s story continue. A Fast X Easter egg did provide a reminder of her presence in the franchise. This could be to help set up her appearance in Fast 11, but a return alongside the franchise’s biggest female characters would be more fitting.

2 Vanessa Kirby’s Hattie Needs To Crossover With The Main Franchise
She’s from the franchise’s only current spinoff
Vanessa Kirby in Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw

Only appearing in Hobbs & Shaw, Vanessa Kirby’s Hattie is the third sibling in the Shaw family and one of the most dangerous women in the Fast universe. She was a scene-stealing presence in the previous Fast & Furious spinoff movie that left audiences wanting more. It would be great to see Kirby return for an even bigger role in the franchise spinoff, allowing her to interact with some of the other prominent characters along the way.

1 Helen Mirren’s Queenie Should Be The Female Ensemble’s Mentor
She’s become a frequent face
Dom Toretto and Queenie Shaw in Fast and Furious

With her appearances in the past four movies, including Hobbs & Shaw, Helen Mirren has become a surprising mainstay of the Fast & Furious franchise. Her role as British gangster Queenie is such a fun role for the Dame, and her time in the universe should continue especially in the all-female spinoff. Mirren’s roles in the movies have mostly been one-scene cameos, so this film could be a great space to expand the character and give her a chance to interact with more actors than just Vin Diesel.
