Jamie Lee Curtis gets emotional just thinking about the ''trauma'' her 'Halloween' character goes through.

The 59-year-old star will reprise her role as Laurie Strode in the upcoming reboot of the classic horror film, and the 'Freaky Friday' actress has revealed how all the crew wore name tags - which she had asked for to remember their names - with the words 'We are Laurie Strode' on them to show they were there to support her through the violent tale, which left her feeling ''really raw''.

She told the latest issue of Empire magazine: ''It was emotional. I was really quite raw, to be perfectly honest.

''I insist that the crew wear name tags for the first three or four days so I can know their names.

''And on my last night on the movie, when I walked onto the set, the entire crew had name tags on that said, 'We are Laurie Strode.'

''And what they were saying is that they were with me.

''Her trauma was their trauma.

''I cry as I am telling you this story. It moved me so deeply. It was a moment I will never forget in my life.

''It was powerful.''

Jamie recently admitted the movie will resonate with people who have been on the receiving end of violence in various forms.

She said: ''It's a movie about trauma. It's a movie about what happens to somebody when you're 17 years old and you have this horrible trauma perpetrated on you, and you have no help. This is a woman who has carried, for 40 years, her entire adult life, this trauma.

''And as we are seeing in the world today, all of these women, primarily women, who have been traumatised in all sorts of ways, physical violence, emotional violence, sexual violence and, in Laurie's case, actually knife-attack violence ... all of those women are having the moment where they will no longer allow that to be the narrative.''
