Heather was born to an artist Mary Alice and a petroleum attorney Robert Dobie Langenkamp and, besides American, is of Scottish, English and German descent.

Heather debuted as an actress in 1983 when she appeared in Francis Ford Coppola‘s crime drama “The Outsiders”. Subsequently, in 1984 she briefly appeared in “Nickel Mountain” as well as in “Passions”, a TV movie. The real breakthrough in Heather’s acting career occurred later in 1984 when Wes Craven chose her for the role of Nancy Thompson, a teen heroine in his horror movie “A Nightmare on Elm Street”, also featuring young Johnny Depp; the movie gained real commercial success with over $25 million at the box office. The latter engagement provided the basis for Langenkamp’s net worth and also helped her to establish herself as a prominent young actress.
In 1987, Heather reprised her role of Nancy Thompson in franchise’s sequel – “A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors”. Between 1988 and 1990, she starred in ABC’s sitcom “Growing Pains” as well as in its spin-off TV series “Just the Ten of Us” in which she portrayed Marie Lubbock, one of the three main protagonists. In 1994, Heather Langenkamp appeared as herself in another Wes Craven motion picture – “New Nightmare”, and subsequently in the role of Nancy Kerrigan in “Tonya & Nancy: The Inside Story”, a sport drama based on the true story about two USA Olympic Ice Skating Team archrivals.

In 2007, she returned to acting with an appearance in the indie documentary “The Bet”. Ever since, she has maintained a continuous streak of acting credits, appearing in “The Butterfly Room” (2012) and “Home” (2016) movies, as well as in “American Horror Story” and “The Bay” TV series.

I do like acting, but it is just something that I do on the side, being rich and famous is not a priority for me. I have my husband, my kids, my parents, my brothers and sisters, my home and enough money. I don't need to be this rich and famous millionaire actress, I am quite happy with what I have and I can't think of anything that might be lacking from my life
I'm not rich or famous, and it doesn't bother me.
When I'm around actresses who've put their careers at the top of their priorities, we don't have much in common.
