Why We Love: Nancy Thompson (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”)


For me a great hero is someone who is willing to sacrifice themselves in order to save those around them. Especially the ones they love. My favorite hero is Nancy Thompson played by Heather Langenkamp from the Nightmare on Elm Street. Nancy is likable, smart, and resourceful. She feels like the door next door and she is someone that everyone can relate to. She gives her life in Nightmare on Elm Street 3 because of love. She can’t save those around her and she dies trying. BUT, she never gives up and she fights to the bitter end against Freddy. She’s fantastic!
