The niece of Alec Baldwin, la star e il produttore del film, ha preso la sua storia su Instagram venerdì e le ha offerto le sue condoglianze.
“Mando il mio amore alla famiglia di Halyna Hutchins,” il 24enne ha scritto venerdì, come citato da Rivista di persone. “This is a truly unimaginable and devastating tragedy. My thoughts are also with [la direttrice] Joel Souza as he recovers.”
A rep for the model did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Santa Fe County Sheriff’s officials said the cinematographer and the director were shot Thursday on the rustic film set in the desert on the southern outskirts of Santa Fe, Nuovo Messico.
Hutchins, 42, was airlifted to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel, ha detto il dipartimento dello sceriffo.
Souza, 48, was taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical and has since been released.
Production was halted on the film.
A spokesperson for Alec said there was an accident on the set involving the misfire of a prop gun with blanks, though a charge without a metal projectile is unlikely to kill at a moderate distance.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reported the 63-year-old was seen Thursday outside the sheriff’s office in tears. The International Cinematographers Guild confirmed that the woman fatally shot was Hutchins.
“The details are unclear at this moment, but we are working to learn more, and we support a full investigation into this tragic event,” guild president John Lindley and executive director Rebecca Rhine said in a statement.
The star broke his silence on Friday morning. He expressed his condolences to Hutchins’ family and called the shooting an accident.
“Non ci sono parole per esprimere il mio shock e la mia tristezza per il tragico incidente che ha tolto la vita a Halyna Hutchins, una moglie, nostra madre e nostra collega profondamente ammirata,” ha twittato.
“Sto collaborando pienamente con le indagini della polizia per affrontare come si è verificata questa tragedia e sono in contatto con suo marito, offrendo il mio sostegno a lui e alla sua famiglia. Il mio cuore è spezzato per suo marito, il loro figlio, e tutti coloro che conoscevano e amavano Halyna,” ha concluso l'attore.
Hutchins, un 2015 graduate of the American Film Institute, worked as director of photography on the 2020 action film “Archenemy,” starring Joe Manganiello. She was named a “rising star” by American Cinematographer in 2019.
L'indagine è in corso.
