Living legend Robert Englund is best known for his work as Freddie Krueger in the original A Nightmare on Elm Street. Robert worked steadily through the 1970s, guest starring in scores of TV shows as well as working alongside some of the biggest stars of that decade. Soon, Robert was cast as Willie the friendly alien in the hit mini-series, and subsequent weekly TV show, V. As a result, Robert figured he would be eternally typecast as a sweet and lovable alien. To counterbalance this public image, he looked for a role that would allow him to demonstrate another side of his talents. During hiatus, he auditioned for Wes Craven’s upcoming low-budget horror movie, which landed him the role of burn-scarred dream demon Freddy Krueger and launched him into horror history.
