Eliza told the outlet: Twenty eight years ago, I was shattered by the shock and grief of losing the love of my life, Brandon Lee, so senselessly. My heart aches again now for Halyna Hutchins’ husband and son, and for all those left in the wake of this avoidable tragedy.’

Brandon, the son of Bruce Lee, and Eliza were set to wet on April 17, 1993 in Ensenada, Mexico a week after Brandon was supposed to wrap filming for The Crow.

However on March 31, 1993 Brandon died at age 28 after he was accidently killed while filming a scene for the movie.

It occurred when a prop gun that was actually a real gun had malfunctioned and a blank round hit him with the same force as if it was a real bullet.

Brandon and Eliza first met in 1990 when she was a personal assistant, with the duo moving in together in early 1991 and getting engaged the year after.

Eliza’s interview comes days after Brandon’s sister Shannon admitted Halyna’s accidental death on the set of Rust this week, has brought it all back.

She told The Hollywood Reporter: “I have been in contact with my mom and with my brother’s fiancée. A lot of people have been reaching out. It’s stirring up a lot of emotions — and frustration.

“I think that in this day and age with all the special effects that are possible and all of the technology, there is no reason to have a prop gun or a gun on a set that can fire a projectile of any sort. It is not necessary, and I would love to see some changes made industry-wide. My brother’s fiancée and I have been talking about it. I think we wish we had thought to do more 28 years ago, and we would love to do that now.”

Alec Baldwin, Rust star and producer, discharged the gun that killed Halyna and injured director Joel Souza and Shannon revealed her ‘heart goes out’ to Alec after the accidental killing.

She said: ‘There are rules that are supposed to be followed. I am certainly not pointing fingers at anyone because that would be the wrong thing to do. But, there is no reason for something like this to happen.’

‘My heart goes out to Alec Baldwin. I feel for the work he is going to have to do to process this and try to find some measure of peace around it. And even more so for the family of Halyna Hutchins. It’s having your whole world flip upside down. There should be compassion for all the pain everyone is going through.’
