The husband of the cinematographer who was killed on the set of the movie “Rust” earlier this week, is honoring his late wife with a touching tribute on Instagram.
On Saturday, in his first post on the platform since the tragic death of Halyna Hutchins, 42, widower Matthew Hutchins shared three sweet photos of the couple and their 9-year-old son Andros.
“We miss you, Halyna!” Hutchins, 48, wrote in the caption.
The Ukrainian-born cinematographer was accidentally shot by actor and producer Alec Baldwin on Thursday in an incident involving a prop gun at the Bonanza Creek Ranch set in New Mexico.
She was flown by helicopter to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she was declared dead.
The film’s director, Joel Souza, was also injured in the tragic accident. He was taken to the Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe but has since been released.
On Saturday, the 48-year-old filmmaker spoke about his late colleague for the first time.
“She was kind, vibrant, incredibly talented, fought for every inch and always pushed me to be better,” Souza said in a statement.
“My thoughts are with her family at this most difficult time,” he added.
A day earlier, Matthew Hutchins honored his wife.
“Halyna inspired us all with her passion and vision, and her legacy is too meaningful to encapsulate in words,” her husband tweeted on Friday, asking the media to respect the family’s privacy.
“We thank everyone for sharing images and stories of her life,” he added.
