Robert Englund

An American leading actor of a number of horror films, probably best known as Freddy Kruger in Nightmare On Elm Street, A (1984) and all of its sequels. Englund, a boyish, tall and gaunt figure became a cult favorite after that film but had started working in the 70s. He was cast in Eaten Alive (1976), as a sex crazed maniac directed by Texas Chainsaw Massacre director, Tobe Hooper. From then, he went on to a number of low-budget horror films, including Galaxy of Terror (1981) and _Fifth Floor, The (1980)_ . Then came the big break as Freddy Kruger in 'Elm Street', as the man of bad dreams with the disfigured face, and a red striped shirt with his right hand as razor sharp knives. The film was directed by Wes Craven and was so successful that producers of New Line Cinema had him reprise Freddy in all of the sequels. With the success of the sequels, he played a the title role in the semi-remake of the horror film classic, Phantom of the Opera, The (1989) for 21st Century Film Corporation. From then on, Englund has frequently worked with horror director Tobe Hooper, for example in Night Terrors (1993) and Mangler, The (1995).Source: cinema.com
