Baldwin, 63, sat down with George Stephanopoulos for his first interview since the deadly shooting occurred on October  21. On Wednesday, ABC News released its first preview for the hourlong sit-down.

When asked if he pulled the trigger on the gun that killed Hutchins, the cinematographer who worked on ‘Rust’, Baldwin said, “The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger. I would never point a gun at someone and pull the trigger on them, never.”

The preview didn’t include Baldwin’s explanation as to how the shot was fired from the gun.

“Someone put a live bullet in a gun. A bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property,” he said.

“Even now, I find it hard to believe that (the incident occurred),” he continued. “It doesn’t seem real to me.”

Through his tears, Baldwin also recalled Hutchins as “someone who was loved by everyone who worked with (her), liked by everyone who worked with and admired.”

In the interview, Baldwin will also answer why he’s speaking out now, how he believes the shooting occurred, how he’s come to terms with the fatal accident and how he responds to actors like George Clooney, who say they always check guns on set before filming.
