Robert Englund (born June 6, 1947) is an American film and stage actor, voice actor, singer, and director. He is best known for playing the character of infamous serial killer Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street film series.


  • What makes the Nightmares on Elm Street universal and forever in their attraction, I think, is simply the dream. The landscape of the mind, the subconscious, the nightmare. Everybody has a nightmare, and everybody apparently has falling dreams, and everybody has the drowning dream, and everybody has certain kinds of sexual manifestation dreams, as well as our stress dreams; I didn’t study for the algebra test, I didn’t study for my driving test, you know, all those dreams. I still have those dreams, and it’s just such an interesting thing that our mind can turn against us, our own mind, you know we all have.

Quotes about Robert Englund[edit]

  • Robert Englund is incredibly intelligent, very clever, and he is a fireball of energy. For that man to be sitting in a chair to have four hours of makeup put on him….God bless him, haha! He knows anything about history, tile, grout, decorating, authors, film, he is just an abundant person, and just so fun. He’s also incredibly caring as an actor. When we’re on set and being blocked, there’s no favoritism or anything, he wants the scene to be as good as possible.
