Alec Baldwin gives 'raw and intense' first interview over Rust tragedy

12/01/2021

Alec Baldwin has given his first studio interview following the death of Halyna Hutchins, on the set of Rust.

The actor, 63, discharged a gun on the set of the Western movie in October, and fatally shot the cinematographer, 42, as well as injuring director Joel Souza.

He has kept a low profile since the tragedy, but has recorded an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on the incident, which will air on Thursday on ABC and Hulu, at 8pm ET.

During an appearance on Good Morning America, the anchor described their chat as ‘raw’, and the most ‘intense’ interview he has ever experienced.

‘I’ve done thousands of interviews in the last twenty years at ABC,’ he said. ‘This was the most intense I’ve ever experienced.

‘So raw. As you can imagine he’s devastated but he was also very candid, he was very forthcoming.

‘He answered every question, he talked about Halyna Hutchins, talked about meeting with her family as well.

‘[He] went through in detail what happened on the set that day and I have to tell you I was surprised in many places over the course of that hour and twenty minutes we sat down yesterday.’
