Alec Baldwin has revealed a crew member’s response to claims that the set of his film Rust was dangerous. Halyna Hutchins, a cinematographer, died last month after an actor shot a revolver he had been told was not loaded.

“The storey being pushed about us being overworked and surrounded by unsafe, chaotic conditions was inaccurate, according to costume designer Terese Magpale Davis.”

“Read this,” Baldwin, who is also a producer on the film, captioned her thoughts on Instagram. Last month, the 63-year-old Hollywood legend unintentionally shot Hutchins while rehearsing for the Western in New Mexico. Joel Souza, the director, was hurt.

A police investigation is underway, with the Santa Fe County Sheriff claiming “some complacency” in the handling of firearms.

Other members of the team have criticised the safety precautions, with chief electrician Serge Svetnoy blaming the accident on negligence and unprofessionalism on Facebook.

Some crew members walked off set before the accident in a dispute over accommodations and hours, according to reports.

“Several safety meetings, sometimes numerous each day, concerns were heard and addressed.” Davis claimed

Tiers represent a film’s budget and, as a result, the wages paid. Tier One is the most affordable category, implying that a film’s budget is less than $6 million (£4.4 million).

While authorities investigate the shooting, Rust production has been halted indefinitely. Prosecutors say it’s too early to say whether criminal charges will be filed.

Meanwhile, Hilaria Baldwin, Baldwin’s wife, has condemned the paparazzi for harassing her family after the incident on Instagram.

Even after the interview we pulled over for the other day, they have not respected our request for space. With our children, we’ve been chased about in autos. There have been a few scary moments. This is dangerous.

The actor spoke out about the shooting over the weekend, calling it a “one-in-a-trillion incident.”
