Noble Craig (died April 26, 2018) was an American actor who became known for his roles in horror films after having lost both of his legs and one of his arms in the Vietnam War.
Craig was drafted into the United States Army on May 3, 1967 during the Vietnam War, and was sent to Vietnam in April 1969. On his twelfth day of duty while serving with the 82nd Airborne Division, he stepped on a buried artillery shell or land mine, causing him to lose both of his legs, his right arm, and most of the sight in his right eye.
Craig made his acting debut in the 1973 film Sssssss, in which he played Tim McGraw, “the Snake Man”. He later played a legless monster in the Poltergeist II: The Other Side and an insect-like sewer monster in Big Trouble in Little China, as well as a partially dissolved character in The Blob. He briefly portrayed Freddy Krueger in the climax of A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child, and played one of Herbert West’s failed experiments in Bride of Re-Animator.
