Last week, Alec Baldwin appeared in his first interview since Rust the film is set in tragedy, where he claims that he didn’t even pull the trigger of the gun to fend off killing the cameraman. Halyna Hutchins.
He added that he was “told by people I know… that it is highly unlikely that I will be charged with anything criminal.” However, Santa Fe County District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies, who is leading the investigation, said that the actor and several others could still be charged for their roles in the event.
“Everyone involved in the handling and use of firearms on set has a duty to behave in such a way that the safety of others is protected,” says Carmack-Altwies. TMZ. “It appears that certain actions and inactions contributed to this outcome.”
As investigations are still ongoing, Carmack-Altwies stressed that no firm decisions have been made yet. “Once I have a chance to review the complete investigation, certain individuals may be held criminally responsible for his/her actions and/or omissions regarding the film. Rust,” she added.
In his tearful interview with ABC News‘ George Stephanopoulos Last Thursday, Baldwin said he wanted to do everything in his power to clear his name before the investigation was over. “I really feel like I can’t wait for that process to be over in February or March,” he said, adding that he would “never point a gun at anyone.” “I’ll do my best to undo what happened.”
On October 21, Baldwin was given a prop gun that was used on set Rust, was filming in New Mexico, killing Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza. “In enterprise protocols, [armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed] Baldwin recounted giving me the gun 99% of the time, no matter what,” Baldwin recounted, adding that he had been told the gun was empty when instructed to point it at Hutchins.
“Everybody was shocked… the gun should have been empty,” Baldwin said. “I was told I was given an empty gun. She went down, I thought to myself, ‘Did she faint?’ The notion that there was a direct volley of bullets in that gun didn’t come to me until 45 minutes or an hour later.”
