'''Robert Englund''' is a classically trained actor, who primarily works in film and television.

He became famous for his contributions to horror genre, most notably with the role of Freddy Krueger in ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' films.

However, he first hit the big time as the [[PlayingAgainstType lovably innocent Willie]] in the ''Franchise/{{V}}'' franchise. This created a TV image strong enough that when ''Series/FreddysNightmares'' had an OriginStory story for Krueger, Englund's face was largely obscured to avoid associations with Willie.

Along with his acting work, he has also directed two movies; ''Film/NineSevenSixEvil'' in 1988 and ''Killer Pad'' in 2008.

Also, he and three others [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2 once fought a zombie-fied George A. Romero]].
