Halyna, the film's cinematographer, was killed on set after the prop gun Alec was holding went off.

The actor opened up about the incident in an interview with Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos.

"She was someone who was loved by everyone who worked with her, liked by everyone she worked with, and admired."

"Even now, I find it hard to believe that, it just doesn't seem real to me," he said.

Stephanopoulos asked, "It wasn't in the script for the trigger to be pulled?"

"I did not pull the trigger..."

Alec responded, "Well the trigger wasn't pulled, I did not pull the trigger..."

He insisted, "No, no, no, no, no, I would never point a gun at anyone and pull a trigger at them, never."

Alec was asked, "How did a real bullet get on that set?"

He replied, "I have no idea, someone put a live bullet in a gun, a bullet that wasn't even supposed to be on the property."

Stephanopoulos asked, "You said you're not a victim, but is this the worst thing that's ever happened to you?

"Yes," Baldwin said. "Because I think back, and I think of, 'What could I have done?'"

The full interview airs in America early Friday morning on Irish time.
