Everybody keeps saying that I am this Rising Star [....] They don't know the truth [....] That I am losing myself.

–Father Tomas to Maria Walters

Father Tomas Ortega is a character from The Exorcist television series and is played by Alfonso Herrera.


Father Tomas is a warm, selfless and compassionate leader of a small but hearty little church.[1] Like Father Karras, Tomas suffers from a crisis of faith. In the season 1 finale, he gets his faith back.

You said I had nothing. You were wrong. I have love, hope, and I have faith. These things are not weaknesses. They make me what I am.... An exorcist.

Father Tomas, Chapter Ten: Three Rooms

Notes Edit

  • Since the TV series is inspired by the original Exorcist novel, Father Tomas is a rebooted version of Damien Karras.
