Should I question everyone's competence on a movie set, if I become an actor?

That’s really the job of the director and the producer, but you can certainly be wary.
Too much wariness, though, may make you a pain in the ass to work with. “We’re trying to definitely make it clear that everybody’s equal under the law, including A-list actors like Alec Baldwin,” Andrea Reeb, a special prosecutor appointed by Santa Fe County’s district attorney to help handle the case, said in an interview.
Everyone’s equal under the law, but not everyone is equally guilty under the law. I think this is nuts.
I would certainly say, though, that “trust but verify” would be the wisest course, especially in instances where the consequences of error could be huge. But the points listed under the subhead “There was such a lack of safety’ on set”: all those statements about contributing conditions—by making those assertions, isn’t the DA treating those as proven facts? And aren’t they really things that ought to be established by means of evidence, not asserted beforehand as givens? Not should, but feel free to do so. Perhaps having a checklist of things to do/say/ask to satisfy your apprehension would be an easy, eventually routine, way to handle this for yourself. You could present it to the group you are working with…..more eyes and ears. It might be worth waiting to see how the case comes out before speculating and judging.
