Alec Baldwin has assured that he was not aware that he had shot the photography director Haleyna Hutchins until several minutes passed after the accident.
"I thought about myself: 'Did you faint?' The notion that there was a royal bullet in that pistol did not occur to me until 45 minutes or an hour probably passed, "explained the actor during an interview issued by the ABC chain, the first one granted after the tragic incident occurred in the month. October.
According to Baldwin, the confusion in the study was evident since no one "could understand" what happened in the immediate seconds to the shot, to the point that he came to think that his companion had suffered a heart attack.
"The mere idea that someone would have put a real bullet was not even possible," he said visibly excited.
At the top audience and through one of the main chains of American television, the actor offered, among tears, a detailed description of the moment in which the fatal accident occurred.
Baldwin insisted that he "never squeezed the trigger" but that, following the instructions of the photo director itself, he picked up the gun to put it in the shooting position during a chamber positions for the Filme 'Rust'.
"She is next to the camera, the camera is here, she is giving me instructions on how she wants the image angle of the scene and I take the weapon," he described.
"I'm not aiming at the lens of the camera, I hold the weapon where she tells me to hold her. That turned out to be under her armpit. (...) We continue and then I start to melt the weapon. I'm not going to shoot. She He says: 'Just reprontinate, can you see it?' And then loose the hammer of the gun and the gun shoots, "he continued.
After the shot Baldwin stood for a minute next to her, who was still conscious and in 'Shock State' until finally vanished.
"Everyone was horrified," he said. Even when more than a month of the event has passed, Baldwin still does not know the origin of that bullet.
"Someone put real ammunition on that pistol, a bullet that should not even be in the building," he said. And he picked up the question by sustaining: "I can not say who he was, but it was not me."
The actor, who also served as a producer in the film, broke how to talk about Hutchins: "It does not seem real to me," he said - (...) was dear and admired by all those who worked with her. "
The interview is issued the same week in which the state of the State of New Mexico (US) have ordered the registration of the company that supplied ammunition and weapons for filming the film.
According to the local press, the police tries to find out the exact origin of the Ammunition delivered by the company PDQ Arm & Prop LLC, a company based in Albuquerque and whose owner, Seth Kenny, told the authorities that he remembered having seen a cargo that "He caught his attention" because he was unusually labeled.
The owner of the business had previously worked with Hannah Gutiérrez Reed's father, the 24-year-old girl hired as in charge of weapons in the production of Baldwin and whose parent has recognized that in other films used real ammunition for shooting practices.
Two weeks ago the monitoring of the film script, Mamie Mitchell, and the Head of Enlightenment, Serge Svetnoy, presented demands against Baldwin and other members of the production by putting at risk the security of employees.
The statements of team members who worked on the shooting of 'Rust' describe a precarious work environment in which the protests were piled up and by which it resigned half a dozen employees on the same day of the accident.
For his part, the sheriff of the Santa Fe town, Adan Mendoza, said last month that he had found some 500 ammunition cartridges in the studio, among which was a mixture of "fake cartridges, false bullets and true bullets."Date Of Update: 07 December 2021, 17:22
