Carrie star Cynthia Preston has said it was important to keep the atmosphere light on the set of the horror remake.
The General Hospital actress appears alongside Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore in Kimberly Peirce's reboot of the cult seventies horror film, which is finally due for release in October after a seven-month delay.
Cynthia revealed: "It was very light-hearted. Julianne Moore knows every crew member by name, laughs easily, jokes with them, she was so lovely, and the energy was just very, very light.
"It had to be because otherwise it would be pretty creepy."
She added: "You are going to be surprised. It's going to make you squirm, but it was wonderful."
And the actress admitted there was pressure remaking such a classic film.
But she added: "You view it like you do everything, and you go into it with all of your heart, and the creative energy is just amazing.
"And you focus on it as the project you're working on and not anything else. You don't go in with a preconceived idea. Kim just let us all work and flourish."
