Dwayne Johnson and James Gunn lead tributes for cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was accidentally shot dead after Alec Baldwin misfired a prop gun



Tributes are pouring in for cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins after she died at the age of 42.



Hutchins died on Thursday October 21 after Alec Baldwin, 63, fired off a prop gun accidentally killing her on set of the movie "Rust". The film’s director Joel Souza, 48, was also injured after the incident on set of the movie at Santa Fe, New Mexico.



Deputies responded about 2 p.m. to the movie set at the Bonanza Creek Ranch after 911 calls came in of a person being shot on set, Rios said. The Santa Fe New Mexican reported Baldwin was seen Thursday outside the sheriff's office in tears, but attempts to get a comment from him were unsuccessful.



Filming for "Rust" was set to continue into early November, according to a news release from the New Mexico Film Office.







The Ukrainian-born, Los Angeles-based director of photography's credits also include films such as Archenemy, Blindfire and The Mad Hatter. In 2019 she was selected as one of American Cinematographer magazine’s Rising Stars.



The news has shocked and saddened Hollywood with many stars reacting to Hutchins’ death on social media.



Jungle Cruise actor Dwayne Johnson commented on Hutchins’ last Instagram post, writing ‘I am so so sorry. Rest easy. My love and strength to your family.’



Suicide Squad director James Gunn tweeted:




‘My greatest fear is that someone will be fatally hurt on one of my sets. I pray this will never happen. My heart goes out to all of those affected by the tragedy today on Rust, especially Halyna Hutchins & her family.’
