Trivia: Which actor made their big screen debut in “A Nightmare on Elm Street”?
Helena Bonham Carter
Correct Answer: Johnny Depp
So why is this answer correct? : Although Charlie Sheen was originally cast as Nancy’s boyfriend to be killed off by Freddy Krueger, his salary requirements were too high. The unknown actor Johnny Depp took his place. It was his first film, and his castmates remember him as being nervous and easily flustered, with a tendency to call Robert Englund, in full Freddy makeup, “sir.”
