“It’s been my dream forever to work with Rita Moreno, and the fact that she’s here playing my grandmother makes my soul smile,” Diesel said of the “West Side Story” legend, who will play the grandma of Diesel’s character, Dominic Toretto. “I’m so blessed.”

Moreno gladly accepted the role.

“You know what? I think I was getting … I think my old age was waiting for you to invite me. Isn’t that nice? And I’m here. And the answer is yes, I’ll do it,” she said about the part.

Diesel previously welcomed Brie Larson to the movie in April.
