Interview Interviews Linda Blair-1977



Liz Derringer was a high-profile celebrity interviewer in the seventies/eighties, probably best known for her HIGH TIMES pieces. Here, courtesy of ace researcher DEREK Tague, is a photocopy of Ms. D's brief but informative 1977 interview with our favorite, Linda Blair, from Andy Warhol's tabloid-sized magazine, INTERVIEW.


In the piece, Linda, promoting EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC, also discusses her family, her horses, Richard Burton and Liz Taylor and perhaps most interestingly to the gossip-minded, her prior relationships with Steve Tyler and actor Helmut Berger. Note that Linda would have just turned 18 in late January of 1977 and that this article was published in the February issue that year. She was still about five years away from posing naked for OUI Magazine.

Thank you! It's so hard to find any of Linda's early interviews so this was a rare treat!

Agree with Anon at 4:10 p.m. on whatever day... Thanks for putting this up. I always have wondered how a 14 year old kid could play that ... character! So convincingly. She doesn't talk about it much, I guess she got sick of it, but it's still fascinating. And I love her comment at the end about 'how could a teen story be interesting'. That was smart. Great interview, thanks.
