Preston: We kept Carrie set light

Cynthia Preston says the cast and crew of Carrie kept things light-hearted on set

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."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
