Langenkamp's voice appears three times in the song "Are You Ready for Freddy" by the Fat Boys, which plays at the end of A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988). In the full version of the song, you can hear her say, "Don't fall asleep", very faintly right before the first chorus. The other two lines in the song are "Fred Krueger, Mom. Fred Krueger." and "He's burned, and he wears a weird hat, and a red and green sweater really dirty.".
It took her seven years to receive her English degree from Stanford University because she was working at the same time.

In a particular scene, after her character has experienced some bizarre events and is rather beaten down, she looks in a mirror and says, "God, I look 20-years-old." The joke here is that even though Heather was playing a 15-year-old, she was actually 20 years old.

Personal Quotes (4)

When I'm around actresses who've put their careers at the top of their priorities, we don't have much in common.
I'm not rich or famous, and it doesn't bother me.
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
Doing Nightmare didn't really help my career much because people have a stuffy mentality about horror films. I kind of feel what a porno actress might feel, trying to tell everyone how great her movie was.
