“The trigger has not been pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger, ”Baldwin said in an excerpt published Wednesday of the interview – his first since the October shooting.

When asked why he pointed the gun at Hutchins and pulled the trigger when it wasn’t in the script, Baldwin replied, “I would never point a gun at someone and then pull the trigger.” on the trigger, never. “

Baldwin also said he had no idea how an actual bullet ended up in the Colt .45 revolver he used in the scene. “Someone put a live bullet in the gun, a bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property,” he said.

An emotional Baldwin visibly holds back tears as he talks about Cackling.

“She was someone who was loved by everyone who worked with her, loved by everyone who worked with her – and admired,” Baldwin said, adding that “it doesn’t feel real to me.”
When asked by George Stephanopoulos if the shooting was the worst thing that has ever happened to him, Baldwin replied yes, “because I look back on it and I think, what could I have done?” “

ABC is scheduled to air the interview Thursday night.

Hutchins was killed and director Joel Souza injured in October after Baldwin discharged a gun during a rehearsal that contained what authorities suspect to be a live bullet.

The incident, which is still under investigation, has renewed calls for better safety practices on the set with regard to the use of weapons.

Baldwin said he believed police officers should be present on “every movie / television set that uses guns, fake or otherwise” to monitor gun safety.
