In a podcast last month, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the armorer on Baldwin’s movie “Rust,” said that she wasn’t sure if she was “ready” for her first job.
The tragic shooting on the “Rust” set coming from a “prop gun” fired by Baldwin resulted in the death of Director of Photography Halyna Hutchins while hospitalizing director Joel Souza.
According to Metro “Hannah, who is the daughter of Thell Reed, a stuntman and Hollywood armorer himself, revealed on the Voices Of The West podcast that she wasn’t sure she was ‘ready’ for the role the first time she was head armorer.”
“It was also my first time being head armorer as well,” she said of working on the Nicholas Cage film “The Old Way.”
“You know, I was really nervous about it at first, and I almost didn’t take the job because I wasn’t sure if I was ready, but, doing it, like, it went really smoothly,” she added.
“Dad has taught me everything but a lot of things I just kind of caught on by myself through observation, watching him do things or just knowing how the firearms work,” she continued.
“I think loading blanks was the scariest thing to me because I was like “oh I don’t know anything about it,” she added.
