WATCH: View Royal psychic headed to the Oscars

Debra Thomlinson will provide readings at Oscars event

A local psychic will soon be among the stars as she heads to the Academy Awards in Hollywood to do celebrity readings in February.

Debra Thomlinson is a psychic, tarot, palm and medium reader based in View Royal. She runs Mystic Intuitive Services and the Mystic Market and also does online readings for clients.

In October, Thomlinson learned she’d be going to Hollywood as a vendor at a celebrity gift event just ahead of the 91st Academy Awards. She is one of two vendors in B.C. that has been chosen to go to the event.

“There’s about 50 vendors as far as I know and I am lucky to have been chosen for this,” Thomlinson said.

Thomlinson said her son will be there to take photos and document her experiences at the event. She said he’s also excited to have the chance to meet some celebrities.

“He’s tickled pink because they just announced some of the nominees for the Oscars,” Thomlinson said. “He’s like, ‘oh my gosh Marvel is there, the Black Panther is there’.”

Several celebrities have been invited to the event, Thomlinson said, and she’s hoping to be reading for close to 100 of them. Thomlinson will be offering either 10-minute psychic readings or gift cards for them to reach out to her online for a reading.

Thomlinson is a chat reader for an online company based in New Zealand and the Netherlands and has started her own website for online readings as well. She also receives clients in her home or over the phone and said she has done readings for people all over the world.

“You have no idea who’s coming to get a reading and it’s very surprising,” Thomlinson said. “We are all the same even though we are different cultures [and from] different countries…we have all the same needs for a psychic so yeah, I quite enjoy what I do.”

Thomlinson said she felt extreme excitement and awe when she found out she’d be going to the Oscars.

“My career has always been a steady approach but now…I think it’s going to really jump it up quite a bit,” Thomlinson said. “I was completely floored.”

As for meeting the celebrities, Thomlinson said she’s not worried about being starstruck.

“They’re all people,” Thomlinson said.
