Robert Englund confirms he's finished with Freddy

10.18.2017by: Mike Sprague

Hard to believe, but A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET star Robert Englund is 70 years old. And as it turns out old age is getting to the man a bit as he just told EW that he is done playing Freddy for good.

While this is sad news, I can understand. But all the same with the use of CGI nowadays to insert young Carrie Ficher and whatnot into STAR WARS, I could see Robert Englund used again in a Freddy movie.

If only for a cameo. Freddy is, after all, a shapeshifter...

Robert Englund on playing Freddy:

I’m too old to do another Freddy now. If I do a fight scene now it’s got to be real minimal because I can’t snap my head for eight different takes and different angles. My spine gets sore. I can still be mean and scary, but I’m mostly relegated now to sort of Van Helsing roles, old doctors and s—. So it’s fun that the last moment of me ever playing Freddy is a wink to the audience.

What do you think of Robert Englund hanging up the Freddy glove forever? It was bound to happen one day. Let us know in the comments below or on by hitting us up on social media.
