Actress Linda Blair will forever be known as the girl who made our heads spin when hers did in the 1973 chiller “The Exorcist.”

She was a young teen when she landed the demonic role that catapulted her to stardom and earned her an Oscar nomination — but it was a role that tortured her for many years afterward because so many fans also felt she was possessed in real life.

Her acting career came to a somewhat abrupt halt, but another door opened for Blair and it’s one she is so thankful for. Blair is now acting on behalf of dogs in need of a loving permanent home.  Adopted from: Jill Rapport  from CNN News
