Hey ladies. Freddy’s got some beauty tips for ya.
There was nothing hotter on the horror scene in the ’80s than the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, and one would have to give star Robert Englund a whole lot of credit for that popularity. Englund turned the franchise’s villain into a true pop culture icon, and he spent so much time in the makeup over the years that he and Freddy Krueger have essentially become one.
In addition to starring in eight films as Freddy, Englund also did endless promotional stuff in the makeup, including a fun interview on the set of Dream Warriors that’s just been brought to our attention. We tip our hats to Patti Pauley over on iHorror for shining the spotlight on the awesome vintage video, which was uploaded by an Elm Street fan website a few years back.
In the rare, unedited video, Englund answers a series of silly questions as Freddy, and it’s sure to put a huge smile on your face. Freddy was the role Englund was born to play, to say the least.
