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

Her passionate mission is to relieve suffering while rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned animals.
She noted that one of the reasons she took part in “The Masked Singer” was to raise awareness of the country’s animal crisis.
“We don’t want perfectly gorgeous pet animals to be euthanized for space,” Blair explained to Fox News Digital as he sat next to an adorable dog.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday’s episode of “The Masked Singer,” Blair revealed herself as the 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 trust your senses, trust all your training, trust and pray to the universe that you won’t fall off the stage,” Blair described.
She continued to say that she channeled her inner Mick Jagger during her performances.

Blair told Fox News Digital how she thinks horror films have evolved over the years.
“I have to tell you, 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 movies do an “incredible job” with all the “new technology”, adding that that 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 in the next year with the new.”
“The Masked Singer” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.
