In related news, Actor Ian A Hudson revealed that the production team for the Alec Baldwin movie Rust - did not consider actors' safety during the intense shooting scenes.

The actor who plays an outlaw in the anticipated film further revealed that only the expensive cameras had protection.

Hudson, who spoke to TMZ, said that his last scene in the movie was on October 8, which involved a shootout where his character was killed.

He added that he was afraid because there were 20 pistols and two riffles that were unloading blanks, but only cameras had a shield in case of any mishap.

According to the actor, he was standing six feet from the camera, and he was surprised that there was a need to protect the camera on set, despite leaving actors exposed to anything that could go wrong.
