If you’re a fan of horror movies, you’ve probably seen the classic film “The Exorcist” from 1973. The movie was a massive success and spawned a sequel, “Exorcist II: The Heretic,” as well as a prequel, “Exorcist: The Beginning.”
But did you know that the spoof comedy film “Scary Movie 2” also included an exorcism scene? And while it may seem like just a minor detail, many viewers have wondered – who played the girl being exorcised in “Scary Movie 2”?
Well, her name is Natasha Lyonne. You may recognize her from her roles in popular TV shows like “Orange is the New Black” or movies such as “American Pie” and “But I’m a Cheerleader.” In “Scary Movie 2,” she played the character of Megan Voorhees, who becomes possessed by a demon and requires an exorcism.
Lyonne’s performance in the movie was praised by critics and audiences alike. She brought a perfect balance of humor and horror to her role, making it one of the standout scenes in the film. But Lyonne wasn’t the only talented actor in that scene – she was joined by James Woods, who played Father McFeely, the priest tasked with performing the exorcism.
In terms of her career, Lyonne has had a successful run in Hollywood since her breakout role in the 1999 film “American Pie.” She has received critical acclaim for her performances in both TV shows and movies and has become somewhat of an indie darling. Her performance in “Orange is the New Black” earned her an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.
