Actress Linda Blair, probably best known as the star of “The Exorcist”, has long been a fan favorite at Horror, Paranormal and Comic conventions.  This weekend, the star will join other celebs and enthusiasts at the Las Vegas Comic Expo, which will be held at the Riviera Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

CFM spoke with Blair about conventions and the importance of charity.  Blair has a huge following and fans turn out specifically to see her at conventions.  We wondered what she gets out of doing conventions and expos. “It gives me the opportunity to meet my fans and educate them on what it is I am doing these days.” says Blair.  ” I just hope that the people that are so passionate about the horror films are as passionate about helping those less fortunate, help the animals in need and are good to others and contribute in a positive way in their communities.”

Blair herself is very passionate about charity and runs a dog rescue on her property.  Linda Blair Worldheart, www.LindaBlairWorldheart.org, is a group of inspired, motivated humanitarians who work tirelessly to fight animal cruelty by educating the public, animal rescue, and finding loving families to give the helpless a second chance at a happy life. The organization was founded by Blair to bring the much-needed attention to the growing problems related to animal welfare and the work required to stop animal abuse and neglect.  Please check out their website at www.LindaBlairWorldheart.org for more information or to find out how you can get involved!
