NEW YORK—A Canadian actress accused of stalking Alec Baldwin sent him a string of emails begging him to marry her, according to a police complaint.
Genevieve Sabourin was arraigned on aggravated harassment and stalking charges Monday, a day after her arrest in New York City.
Police said Baldwin and Sabourin met a decade ago on a movie set and initially had been friendly, but the relationship apparently took a turn for the bizarre in recent days.
Sabourin traveled from her home in Quebec to New York City, then began sending Baldwin desperate emails, according to police.
“Please Alec come and pick me up now,” said one message, according to a court filing. “I am less than 10 min away from you tonight. Say I do to me.” In another, she referred to him as her “husband,” according to court papers.
Then, Sabourin crashed a film screening Baldwin was hosting on April 5 and had to be thrown out by security guards, a police detective wrote.
The following day, she sent another email to the “30 Rock” star, saying, “I hope I did not ruin everything by my lack of freedom and passive actions.”
Sabourin’s lawyer at the arraignment, Julie Sender, said her client and Baldwin had a two-year “mutual relationship.”
They met on the set of “The Adventures of Pluto Nash,” a film in which he made a cameo and she was a publicist, and then went to dinner together at least once in 2010.
Baldwin posted a Twitter message about the episode Tuesday, writing, “Isn’t it odd when an accused stalker is in handcuffs, being taken away by the cops, yet smiles for the cameras?”
