‘Exorcist’ actress Linda Blair opened up about her time on ‘The Masked Singer,’ as she revealed it wasn’t the easiest experience for her.
“It was amazing. It was so hard, and I did it from the bottom of my heart to entertain people,” Blair told Fox News Digital.
“It was an amazing opportunity. I wanted to do this on behalf of animals…the crisis we’re in and the work I’m doing with the foundation.”
In 2006, Blair started a charity, the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation Rescue and Wellness Center.

Her passionate mission is to alleviate suffering while rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned animals.
She noted that one of the reasons she participated in “The Masked Singer” was to raise awareness about the country’s animal crisis.
“We don’t want to see perfectly wonderful pets being put to sleep for space,” Blair told Fox News Digital as he sat next to an adorable companion dog.
Meanwhile, during Wednesday’s episode of ‘The Masked Singer,’ Blair revealed herself as the scarecrow with a big pumpkin head, as she explained the challenges of wearing the costume on the show.
“It’s incredibly claustrophobic. You really have to rely on your senses, rely on all your training, count and pray to the universe that you don’t fall off the stage,” Blair described.
She went on to say that she channeled her inner Mick Jagger during her performances.

Meanwhile, Blair reflected on her role in ‘The Exorcist’ and whether she’s ever experienced paranormal activity herself.
“Not on set. No, I never did that. It’s something a lot of people asked for. 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 that I don’t like horror movies. They scare me,” she confessed.

Blair went on to say that she would rather laugh during a comedy movie, but pointed out that horror films do an “amazing job” with all the “new technology”, while adding that it did not 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 amazing movies now… We’ll see what will happen next year with the new one.”
“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.
