Alec Baldwin shares comments from crew member rejecting suggestions that the set of his film Rust was unsafe—

Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died last month when the actor fired a gun that he had been told was not loaded.

Costume designer Terese Magpale Davis wrote that “the story being spun of us being overworked and surrounded by unsafe, chaotic conditions” was untrue.

Baldwin, who is also a producer on the film, shared her comments on Instagram with the caption: “Read this.”

The Hollywood star, 63, accidentally shot Hutchins during rehearsals for the Western in New Mexico last month. Director Joel Souza was injured.

A police investigation is under way, with the Santa Fe county sheriff saying there had been “some complacency” in how weapons were handled.

Other crew members have criticised the safety measures, with chief electrician Serge Svetnoy writing on Facebook that he blamed “negligence and unprofessionalism” for the tragedy.

It has also emerged that some crew members walked off set before the accident in a dispute over accommodation and hours.

Davis said the team had “several safety meetings, sometimes multiple per day”, and that “concerns were heard and addressed”.
