Breaking his silence. Alec Baldwin has spoken out following the death of Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
Hutchins, 42, was rushed to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Thursday, October 21, after a prop gun was discharged by the actor, 63, on set. Director Joel Souza was also injured and rushed to the hospital but has since been released.
“There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” the 30 Rock alum tweeted on Friday, October 22. “I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”
On Thursday, the movie’s production company, Rust Movie Productions LLC, released a statement following the incident: “The entire cast and crew has been absolutely devastated by today’s tragedy, and we send our deepest condolences to Halyna’s family and loved ones. We have halted production on the film for an undetermined period of time and are fully cooperating with the Santa Fe Police Department’s investigation. We will be providing counseling services to everyone connected to the film as we work to process this awful event.”
