Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dies on the set of the western “Rust”. Alec Baldwin’s gun contained live ammunition. The Hollywood star thanks his wife with an emotional message.
New York – Around six weeks after the fatal shot on a film set, Hollywood star Alec Baldwin (63) thanked his wife Hilaria (37) for her support with an emotional message.
“No matter what happens to me, no matter what I suffer, if I lose anything – no one can take away the joy and love you have given me, Hilaria,” wrote Baldwin on Instagram. “It’s hard times. The world is suffocated by clouds of hatred. But you gave me a reason to live Our family life is everything that is important to me. ”The couple has been married since 2012 and has six children.
Baldwin had previously spoken in detail for the first time about the film set incident in a broadcast interview with the broadcaster ABC. The killed camerawoman Halyna Hutchins (42) was loved and admired by everyone, said the actor and producer. He still couldn’t believe it happened.
Baldwin emphasized, “I didn’t pull the trigger.” He would never aim a gun at a person and pull the trigger. He had “no idea” how the live ammunition found its way into the weapon. Someone must have loaded the gun with live ammunition. “Someone put live ammunition in a gun, live ammunition that shouldn’t have been on the premises. Somebody is responsible for what happened and I can’t tell who it is, but it’s not me. “
While shooting the western “Rust” on a film ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Hutchins was fatally injured on October 21 and director Joel Souza (48) was hit on the shoulder. Leading actor Baldwin had used the gun for a scene during the rehearsal. The ongoing investigation revealed that there was a real bullet in the Colt. The police are currently investigating how this could happen. dpa
