ABOUT ROBERT ENGLUND
After five years of success in regional theater Robert Englund returned to the west coast for his very first audition which landed him a starring role in the 1973 film Buster and Billie directed by Daniel Petrie. Englund worked steadily through the 70’s playing best friends, bad guy #1 and southern red-necks and starred opposite some of the biggest stars of the time including Henry Fonda, Susan Sarandon, Jeff Bridges, Sally Field and Arnold Schwarzenegger among others. Audiences could put a name to his familiar face when Englund was cast as Willie the friendly alien in the hit mini-series and subsequent successful TV show “V”. During one hiatus from filming the series, he auditioned for a hot young director making an interesting low budget horror movie for the independent studio New Line Cinema. Englund’s interview with Wes Craven landed him the role playing the burn scarred dream demon Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street and launched him into horror history. The international success of “V” and the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise opened the door for film work abroad. Englund has starred in movies shot in such exotic locales as Budapest, St. Petersburg, Tel Aviv, Johannesburg, Madrid, Palermo, Barcelona and Zagreb. After over 75 feature length films, four TV series and countless episodic guest star roles – the most recent being guest leads on “Criminal Minds” and “Workaholics”, Englund is now directing as well as acting, and exploring the world of reality television and internet programming.
