Linda Denise Blair is best known for her role as the possessed child, Regan, in the 1973 acclaimed blockbuster The Exorcist, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award and two Golden Globes, winning one.
Her first film role was in 1971's The Sporting Club. Blair was selected from a field of 600 applicants for her most notable role as Regan in The Exorcist. The role earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and an Academy Award nomination.
She reprised her role in the 1977 sequel, Exorcist II: The Heretic. As the 1970s closed, she started to land good, demanding roles for which she was prepared, and stepped into the fast lane, for which she was not prepared.
Blair encountered trouble as she was arrested and charged with drug possession and conspiracy to sell drugs: after trial, she was found not guilty of possession, but guilty of conspiracy to sell, leading her to get a reduced sentence of three years probation.
Though she tried to act in film, Blair found it hard to restart her screen career and landed low grade films in the 70s and 80s. As she herself said in an interview, her career 'went down faster than the Titanic'.
