She has been an active member of the entertainment industry since 1968.

Blair was raised in Westport, Connecticut because her family moved when she was two years old. Blair`s career began rather early; she was just six years of age when she became a child model and started doing commercials. Since then, her career seems to have gone only upward to its peak, aforementioned role of the possessed girl Regan. Blair was chosen for that particular role from a swarm of 600 other applicants. Besides winning a Golden Globe for the best supporting actress, she was also nominated for The Oscar. Before “The Exorcist” (1973), she appeared in front of the camera lenses in the soap opera “Hidden Faces” (1968-1969) and in the theatrical film “The Way We Live Now” (1970) but those roles didn`t get her anywhere. “The Exorcist” had its sequel, “The Exorcist: The Heretic” (1977) which gained her a nomination for Saturn Award for Best Actress as she starred again in the role of Regan, again a main source of Blair`s net worth.

Notable roles worth mentioning beside Regan are the ones in Television movies “Born Innocent” (1974) and “Sarah T. – Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic” (1975), in which she was a trouble-making teenage girl.

Unfortunately, after those parts her career went down in a spiral, and it was a major blow when she was charged for drug possession. Only 18 years of age, she pleaded guilty in order to reduce the sentence. Blair emerged from all troubles with three years’ probation and had to appear on a number of public events to talk to young people about the dangers of drug abuse.

Her career has never come back in the full glow she enjoyed before the exaggerated drug incident; therefore she had to accept the new Linda Blair and her limits. She did a truly nice job, being selected for a lead role in the cult film “Chained Heat” (1983).

Regarding her personal life and interests, she has always expressed desires to become a veterinarian. In 2003 she took the first steps towards that desire. She became an animal activist and also a humanitarian. She founded a non-profit organization, Linda Blair World Heart Foundation, and since then it serves as a rescue shelter for abused and mistreated animals, and seems to keep her fully occupied.

She briefly dated Rick James.
