Alec Baldwin Says He 'Didn't Pull the Trigger' in Interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos Since Rust Shooting

Alec Baldwin is giving his first televised interview following the fatal shooting on the set of Rust, and ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos says he’s never experienced anything like it in his career, stating that “This was the most intense I’ve ever experienced.”

The interview comes weeks after cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed, and director Joel Souza was injured, on the set of Rust when Baldwin discharged a prop gun. An investigation into the shooting remains ongoing, with officials still examining how live rounds ended up on the set.

More from The Week on Yahoo News:

Baldwin expressed “shock and sadness” on social media in the wake of the “tragic accident,” and he spoke with paparazzi in October while asking them to stop following him and his family. The sit-down with Stephanopoulos, though, will be Baldwin’s first official on-camera interview since the shooting.

On Good Morning America, Stephanopoulos said the conversation was “so raw” and that Baldwin was “very forthcoming,” answering every question and going into detail about “what happened on the set that day.” The ABC anchor also teased that he was “surprised in many places” during the interview, which lasted nearly an hour-and-a-half.
