‘Rust’ star speaks up after fatal Alec Baldwin shooting on set

SANTA FE, N.M.– A “Rust” star stated Friday he wished “precautions” had actually been handled set that might’ve avoided Alec Baldwin’s tragic misfiring of a prop gun that left the movie’s cinematographer dead.

” It’s generally, it’s a terrible embarassment, I want preventative measures would’ve been taken so that it didn’t happen,” John C. Ashton, who had a minor function in the movie, informed The Post beyond the Gold Mine Creek Ranch where the movie set lay.

” But I don’t know just what did happen, the constable will inform, you know, so I can’t state, so I haven’t actually believed about it all that much because I don’t have much to go on.”

On Thursday afternoon, Baldwin was handed a prop weapon loaded with live rounds but was told it was safe minutes prior to he fired, eliminating cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and hurting the film’s director, Joel Souza.

Ashton believed a lot of his fellow cast and crew will probably be speaking to therapists after the on-set disaster.

The 74-year old star, who previously had a small part in “Breaking Bad,” was slated to play a frontier “postmaster at a desolate station” in the western and was driving to Santa Fe, New Mexico, from his home in Denver when he got the news the shoot had been canceled.

A distraught Alec Baldwin lingers in the parking lot outside the Santa Fe County Sheriff's offices.

The actor said that nobody from the production business contacted him or his agent directly to inform him what happened and he just learned the one-day shoot, scheduled for Sunday, was off when the outfit company called.

On Friday night, he drove himself to the Bonanza Creek Ranch set entrance, hoping he ‘d be allowed to check it out however the place was blocked.

Now, Ashton stated he’s not sure of his ideas about the market’s safety procedures for the future and is waiting on more information before reasoning.

” I have not actually believed about how I’m supposed to feel in the future about safeguards etc however I just feel it’s a sad, awful thing that happened,” he stated.

Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot in the incident.
