2. Linda Blair, The Exorcist
Linda Blair’s performance in the Exorcist can be only described as uncanny, but there was a price to be paid. She was only 13 at the time, and to her this was just acting, fun, and games. The bad stuff started popping up after The Exorcist‘s release in 1973. For some reason people took her performance too seriously, and started bombarding her with questions about possession, faith, and Catholicism, that she simply wasn’t prepared to answer. It’s just a movie, for god’s sake!
