Actor John Saxon passes away at 83

Legendary actor John Saxon passed away on Saturday. He was 83 years old.

John Saxon is possibly best known to horror fans as Nancy’s dad in the A Nightmare on Elm Street series, appearing in the first, third, and final installment of the series. He acted in countless other horror classics like Black Christmas and Tenebrae (making a cameo in From Dusk Till Dawn), establishing himself as a horror icon. He had a career that spanned over fifty years and spanned just about every genre across television and film, including an iconic role in Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon.

John always had a seriousness and commitment he brought to any role, no matter the budget or subject matter. His signature hard-stare and deep voice added a little class to every picture… even if it was Cannibal Apocalypse.

Ok, fine, you probably just wanted to watch him fight Bolo Yeung
