Meanwhile, Blair reflected on her role in “The Exorcist” and whether she’s ever experienced paranormal activity herself.

“Not on set. No, I never did. It was something a lot of people asked about. You know, when the movie came out, I didn’t feel anything.”

Blair told Fox News Digital how she thinks horror movies have evolved over the years.

“I have to tell you; I don’t like horror movies. They scare me,” she admitted.

Blair went on to say that she’d rather laugh during a comedy film, but pointed out that horror films do an “amazing job” with all the “new technology,” while adding that it didn’t exist when she was working on “The Exorcist”. “

“That’s why it’s such an iconic movie because it was like doing a magic show and it was hard. It was really hard. But I think they’re making incredible movies now… We’ll see what happening in the next year with new.”

“The Masked Singer” airs on Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.
