    Alec Baldwin would “go to any lengths to undo” the death of Halyna Hutchins

    The cinematographer was fatally shot on the set of the movie 'Rust' on October 21 in an incident which involved a gun that was being handled by the 63-year-old actor


    And in an emotional interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos which aired on Thursday (02.12.21), Alec insisted he would give anything to go back and stop the incident – which also injured director Joel Souza – from happening.

    In first clips of the interview taken by People magazine, Alec said: "I wanted to come to talk to you to say I would go to any lengths to undo what happened.

    “I want to make sure that I don't come across like I'm the victim, because we have two victims here. All of what happened that day leading up to this event was precipitated on one idea, and that idea is that Halyna and I had something profound in common. That is, we both assumed the gun was empty, other than those dummy rounds."

    The actor also insisted “there were a number of misconceptions” about the incident that had surfaced since October 21 and said “most of it”

    was from sources he “really wouldn't concern [him]self about”.

    In a previously released clip from the interview, Alec insisted he did not pull the trigger of the gun that killed Halyna.

    He said: "The trigger wasn't pulled. I didn't pull the trigger. I would never point a gun at someone and pull the trigger on them, never."

    However, the preview for the actor's interview did not include an explanation of how the shot was fired.

    Alec also revealed that he couldn't explain how a bullet ended up in the gun, which was actually intended to be a prop for the Western movie.

    He said: "Someone put a live bullet in a gun. A bullet that wasn't even supposed to be on the property."

    And the actor - who becomes visibly emotional during the interview - admitted he's still struggling to come to terms with the tragedy.

    He shared: "Even now, I find it hard to believe that [the incident occurred]. It doesn't seem real to me."
