Linda Blair

Many of us remember The Exorcist, right? Linda Blair played the role of Regan McNeil in the 1973 movie, and in case you do not know who that is, she is the one who got possessed. Blair did such an excellent performance that she received an Academy Awards win for it, establishing her as a horror icon. Blair then went on to do a cameo on Scream and appeared on a list of B-movies.

Though she made an impact as a horror character and was typecast as such, Blair did not have another role that was as significant as in The Exorcist. Several TV shows also asked her to appear on several episodes, but no starring roles. What she decided to focus on rather are the various charitable causes she supports. The actress has been given credit for founding the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation, which aims to help rehabilitate and even adopt animals.
