Halyna Hutchins’ son Andros fell silent for two days after hearing the news of his mother’s death.
The late cinematographer’s father Anatoly Androsovych said that the nine-year-old did not utter a word after he was informed that his mother died after being accidentally shot by Alec Baldwin with a prop gun.
Anatoly told The Sun: “Andros was incredibly close to his mother and fell silent when told she was dead.
“Matt was really worried because the boy withdrew into himself and couldn’t say a word for two days.
“His dad has managed to coax a few words from him now but the effect has been devastating.
“This tragedy has wrecked a beautiful perfect family – everyone who knows them is destroyed by sorrow.”
