October 23 – The husband of Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer who was shot and killed by actor Alec Baldwin with a propeller pistol on Thursday, is a corporate attorney in the Latham & Watkins Los Angeles office.
Matt Hutchins joined Latham as an associate this year. Previously, he was a lawyer in an entertainment company and practiced at Kirkland & Ellis and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, according to his LinkedIn profile.
“Our loss is enormous”, Hutchins noted on Twitter Friday night. Hutchins told media earlier today that he spoke with Baldwin and said the actor is supportive. He could not be immediately reached for comment. A spokesperson for Latham declined to comment.
Halyna Hutchins was killed when Baldwin discharged a gun on the set of her western movie “Rust” in New Mexico. The Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department said it was investigating the incident, which also injured the film’s director, Joel Souza.
Baldwin posted to social media on Friday that he was in shock, writing: “My heart is broken for her husband, their son and everyone who knew and loved Halyna.”
Hutchins, 42, from Ukraine and growing up on a Soviet military base in the Arctic Circle, previously worked as an investigative journalist in Europe, according to his website.
She graduated from the American Film Institute in 2015 and was selected as one of the Rising Stars of American Cinematography in 2019, according to her website biography.
