“As you might imagine, the entire cast and crew are in a state of absolute surreal grief and shock and I want to thank everyone who has reached out with such beautiful support and love,” Josh wrote on Instagram.

“Secondly, there is already so much hurtful, blind speculation and misinformation circulating,” Josh continued.”Let’s please wait for the results of the investigation so we can avoid repeating a tragedy like this ever again.”

Halyna was killed on Thursday (October 21) after a prop gun fired by Alec Baldwin struck her. The actor did not know the gun was loaded while rehearsing for a scene.

“Halyna was so generous with her kindness, she was an absolutely lovely person and a fierce artist,” Josh concluded his post. “Her greatest joy was filmmaking. Please keep her husband, Matthew and their son in your thoughts.”

Along with his message, Josh also shared the link to Halyna‘s GoFundMe campaign, which her husband set up so fans can help honor her.
