An actor kills a camerawoman – level 1

27-10-2021 07:00

Alec Baldwin is an American actor. He is 63 years old. He is filming a movie in New Mexico now. The movie is called ’Rust’. It is a Western set in the 19th century.

Baldwin fires a gun. It is not a real gun. It is a prop. A prop is a thing which people use in a play or movie. However, he shoots two people.

A camerawoman dies in hospital. She is 42 years old. Baldwin also hits the director Joel Souza. Souza must go to hospital, too. He leaves hospital on the same day.

Police must find out what happens. They say that it is an accident. Baldwin is very upset. He talks to police. He cries.

Difficult words: Western (a film about cowboys in western North America), however (when something is different than people plan), accident (when something bad happens and nobody plans it).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
