Ellen Burstyn reprised her role as Chris MacNeil in The Exorcist: Believer, and the shocking journey of her character could have significant implications for the movie's planned sequels. In The Exorcist: Believer MacNeil returns to counsel Leslie Odom's Victor Fielding, whose daughter appears to be going through the exact same experience as Chris's daughter Regan. While it has been confirmed that the demon in The Exorcist: Believer is not the same demon that tormented Regan MacNeil in The Exorcist, many of the symptoms of the possession are the same, which is why Victor seeks out Chris MacNeil.
