The tragic death of the director of photography Halyna Hutchins on the sets of the upcoming movie Rust while shooting was underway in New Mexico has sparked off a furious debate about the safety of crew members while on location. On October 21, 2021, actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun while filming a scene and accidentally shot Halyna Hutchins and the film’s director Joel Souza. Baldwin was assured that the prop gun was safe but there was a live round in it that fired and killed Hutchins. This incident has created a storm in Hollywood and also brought back devastating memories of a similar incident that took the life of young actor Brandon Lee in March 1993. Brandon Lee, the son of the late martial arts superstar Bruce Lee, died on the sets of his film The Crow when a fellow actor shot him with a gun that was supposed to have been loaded with only blanks. The entire movie industry was shocked when this happened but nobody suffered more back then and ever since than his then-fiancée Eliza Hutton. Eliza Hutton was engaged to Brandon Lee at that time and was supposed to get married on April 17, 1993, but Brandon Lee died on March 31, 1993. It’s October 2021 now and people are asking questions like – Where is Eliza Hutton now?

Who is Eliza Hutton?

Born on February 9, 1964, in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, Eliza is the daughter of a local politician and while she grew up into a stunning tall beautiful young woman she surprisingly chose to stay away from the glamour spotlight. She was 5 feet 10 inches tall and made an indelible impression on everyone who saw her but chose not to become a model or an actress that she could have easily become. Her first noticeable work in Hollywood was as an executive assistant to action movies director Renny Harlin and she later worked as a story editor at Stillwater Productions, a company owned by actor and director Kiefer Sutherland. She also worked in some other casting and production companies but her life changed in a big way when she met Brandon Lee in 1990. Sparks flew immediately between them and their dating each other gave way to love and the couple got engaged in October 1992. Eliza Hutton was now Brandon Lee’s fiancée and she was happy and making plans for their exciting married life when Lee died due to the freak accident. Brandon Lee was only 28 years old at the time of his death and Eliza Hutton was simply shattered beyond repair.

Hutton Has Lived a Quiet & Productive Life After 1993

The Eliza Hutton and Brandon Lee love story and its tragic ending haunted Hollywood for years but made no real difference in the way the industry handled its work with prop guns and real guns while shooting movies. Eliza kept a low profile after Brandon’s death and worked in the industry quietly. Hutton married a man in 2004 and gave birth to a daughter who is now a teenager and close to Wren Kealser, the daughter of Shannon Lee. Shannon Lee is Brandon Lee’s younger sister and has always maintained a close and respectful relationship with Hutton over the years. Hutton was last credited for her work as an assistant to Kiefer Sutherland in 2011 but according to reports, she continued to work in Hollywood for a few more years. Hutton later divorced her husband and settled in Los Angeles, California, where she continues to live even today.
