At the age of 12, Robert began attending drama courses, going to the University of Oakland every day. He pursued his craft at a number of institutions- California State-Northbridge; Rochester, New York; and Michigan Academy of Dramatic Arts. The first time he appeared in a professional production gig is when he was given a role in Godspell in Cleveland.

In the early 80s, Englund was lucky to land the role of Willie in the television series V. Wes Craven, a famous Director then, noticed his impeccable talent and offered him a part in Nightmare on Elm Street as nightmarish Freddy Krueger.

In 2012, he also took part in the movie called Come Dine with Me on Channel 4. Other popular horror movies he has starred in include Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, and Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer. Besides being featured in top horror movies, Englund has also directed a number of films, appeared on the small screens, and done voices.
