About Robert Englund

Robert Englund was born in 1947 in Glendale, California. Starting out in theatre, he spent five years on the stage, before returning to his west coast roots and auditioning for Buster and Billie (1973). He won a staring role in the film, which kick-started a steady acting career.

Winning role after role, Robert played a range of oddball characters, and worked for some of the most sought after directors and producers. A keen surfer, he spent his down-time in the water, and carried on winning roles on a regular basis. He worked alongside actors like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Susan Sarandon, Barbara Streisand and Richard Gere.

Film and TV appearances

Robert has appeared in many TV shows, including Charlie’s Angels and Hart to Hart. In 1983, he won the role of Willie in sci-fi series V, a role that has stayed in the hearts of sci-fi fans, and for which he still receives fan-mail.

Looking for something to show his versatility, Robert went out and got himself an audition in an interesting low-budget film called A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). Wes Craven’s iconic film spawned several sequels and TV series Freddy’s Nightmares. Robert’s portrayal of Freddy Krueger spelled the start of a prolific career in the horror genre. Freddy Krueger appeared on talk shows, in comic, in cartoons such as The Simpsons, South Park and Family Guy, and has inspired several action figures and other merchandise.

He has played a range of characters in films like The Mangler (1995), Wishmaster (1997), Urban Legend (1998), 2001 Maniacs (2005) and Fear Clinic (2014).

His success in the movie industry made him a much sought-after actor, and he made appearances in many popular TV shows, such as Knight Rider, Walker, Texas Ranger, Babylon 5, Justice League, Masters of Horror, Bones, Chuck and Supernatural.
