Halyna's closest friends have expressed their thoughts following her unexpected death when she was fatally shot on location in New Mexico after a prop gun was discharged by 'Rust' actor, Alec Baldwin. 


Director of the film, Joel Souza, was also hospitalized for his injuries and was later discharged.
Wayne Brady, who worked with Hutchins on the 2020 crime drama 'Blindfire', said the deceased was an out-and-out professional. "What I loved is she carried herself with a grace but a strength because being a female [director of production] in this business, that is no small feat. You have to conduct yourself and make sure that this room respects you. That's what I immediately noticed about her," he said.

"The director listened to her, the stars listened to her, because she knew what she was talking about. She was warm and engaging. We talked for a bit while I was working and she was just lovely but got stuff done. I think that was a trademark of hers," Brady added.
