‘The Exorcist’ Star Linda Blair Reflects On ‘The Masked Singer’ If She’s Ever Experienced Paranormal Activity

“The Exorcist” actress Linda Blair has opened up about her time on “The Masked Singer” as she reveals it wasn’t the easiest experience for her.

“It was unbelievable. It was so hard and I did it from my heart to entertain people,” Blair told Fox News Digital.

“It was an incredible opportunity. I wanted to do it for the benefit of animals … the crisis we’re in and the work I do with the foundation.”

In 2006, Blair created the charity Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation Rescue and Wellness Center.

One of the reasons she took part in “The Masked Singer” was to spread awareness about the country’s animal crisis.

“We don’t want to see perfectly wonderful companion animals put to sleep for space,” Blair explained to Fox News Digital while sitting next to the adorable dog.

Meanwhile, during Wednesday’s episode of “The Masked Singer,” Blair revealed herself as a scarecrow with a large jack-o-lantern head as she explained the challenges of wearing the costume on the show.

“It’s incredibly claustrophobic. You really have to kind of rely on your senses, rely on all your training, rely and pray to the universe that you don’t fall off the stage,” Blair described.

She continued to channel her inner Mick Jagger during her performances.

Meanwhile, Blair reflected on her role in “The Exorcist” and whether she had ever experienced paranormal activity herself.

“Not on set. No, I’ve never done that. A lot of people have asked that. You know, when the movie came out, I didn’t feel anything.”

Blair told Fox News Digital how she thinks horror movies have evolved over the years.

“I have to tell you, I don’t like horror movies. They scare me,” she admitted.

Blair went on to say that she would rather laugh during a comedy film, but pointed out that horror films do an “incredible job” with all the “new technology”, adding that it didn’t exist when she was working on “The Exorcist”. “

“That’s why it’s such an iconic movie because it was like doing a magic show and it was hard. It was really hard. But I think they’re making incredible movies now… We’ll see what happens next year with the new one.”

“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 8pm EST on FOX.
