He gives the first tearful interview after the set tragedy
A few weeks ago, Alec Baldwin accidentally killed a camerawoman on the set. Now he’s giving his first tearful TV interview that contains explosive statements.
The shock is still written on actor Alec Baldwin, 63, on his face. Then the tears come to him. It is the first interview that the actor gives after the fatal set accident in which he accidentally shot camerawoman Halyna Hutchins, † 42, with a prop gun and injured director Joel Souza, 48.
The conversation will air on ABC News on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at 8 p.m. American time. Now the US broadcaster has published a first clip on Twitter that contains explosive statements – and gives a little insight into Baldwin’s state of mind.
Alec Baldwin: “I didn’t pull the trigger”
On October 21, the momentous accident occurred on the set of Alec Baldwin’s western film “Rust” in New Mexico. Little did the Hollywood star know that the prop gun was loaded with live ammunition instead of blank cartridges. Now, for the first time, the actor speaks about the day that would change his life forever.
“I would never point a gun at someone and pull the trigger, never,” Baldwin tells journalist George Stephanopoulos, 60, and continues: “Someone put a sharp bullet in a gun, a bullet that shouldn’t even be on the property “.
Alec Baldwin, the film’s lead actor and producer, and Rust Production are faced with multiple lawsuits from crew members complaining about a lack of security on the set. Who was responsible for the live ammunition is still being determined. The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office released a new search warrant on November 30, according to ABC News, indicating that investigators may have located the source of the sharp bullet.
Alec Baldwin still couldn’t believe Hutchins was dead
Alec Baldwin didn’t just give his view of the story. He also spoke to Stephanopoulos about Hutchins, who died after being shot in the hospital.
“I think back and wonder what could I have done?” Describes the actor. “She was someone who was loved by everyone who worked with her, and liked and admired by everyone who worked with her. I mean, even now I find it hard to believe that [sie von uns gegangen ist]. It doesn’t seem real to me. “
