In his first public remarks on the deadly shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins with a prop gun on a movie set, actor Alec Baldwin stated Saturday that the incident was a "one in a trillion episode."
In an impromptu roadside chat with journalists and camera crews, Baldwin said he is not permitted to make any remarks since it’s an “ongoing investigation.”
“We are eagerly awaiting the sheriff’s department telling us what their investigation has yielded.”
He also stated that he believes there should be restrictions on the usage of actual firearms in movies and television shows.
There are incidental accidents on film sets from time to time, but nothing like this. This is a one in a trillion episode.” Hutchins’ family was “overwhelmed with grief,” according to him, who considered her a friend.
He added, “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.”
