Happy Halloween! Do I have the perfect actor to feature today or what?
Robert Englund plays one of the most recognizable characters in horror movies. Yes, Freddy Krueger of the Nightmare on Elm Street film franchise. Englund has an extensive list of film and television roles spanning over thirty years. You can see him tonight in a guest-starring role in a spooky episode of Hawaii Five-0 on CBS. Despite his frightening character's persona, Robert is known to be a congenial, fan-friendly man.
What does Robert like to read?
Robert's wife, Nancy, was kind enough to ask Robert and emailed me with his favorites.
Robert's favorite recent books include Jennifer Egan's A Visit From the Goon Squad and Three Junes by Julia Glass. As a kid he loved Kidnapped and Treasure Island by Robert Lewis Stevenson and A European Education by Romain Gary.
