Robin Christensen-Roussimoff, daughter of Andre the Giant, currently lives a quiet life in Seattle while upholding her legacy through interviews and visits to Comic Con to remember her father. Additionally, she receives royalties from WWE when they use Andre’s name in promotions.
She serves as an advocate for raising acromegaly awareness.
She is an actress
Robin Christensen-Roussimoff is Andre the Giant’s daughter and an established professional actress who has made her mark in Hollywood. She served as an advisor on his film adaptation of Closer to Heaven while appearing in his TV documentary series Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven as well as having shown her work at various galleries worldwide.
She is the sole child of Andre Rene Roussimoff and Jean Christensen; her mother worked as a publicist in the wrestling industry while Andre only died five years after being wed to Jean.
Even after her tragic father’s passing, Robin has continued working tirelessly. She is currently consulting on a film about her life and has not revealed many details of her personal life; instead residing in Seattle Washington and being tall and beautiful like him.
She is a social media personality
Robin Christensen-Roussimoff was the daughter of Andre The Giant, an internationally acclaimed wrestling superstar in the 1970s who quickly rose to become one of the highest-paid athletes worldwide at his peak and known for his enormous size. However, Andre struggled with maintaining an amicable relationship with Robin; seeing her only five times throughout her life. Robin’s mother Jean Christensen worked in public relations in the wrestling world – Robin never met either parent herself.
She currently resides in Seattle and, despite no longer wrestling professionally, remains connected to her father’s legacy. Robin is involved with charitable work aimed at raising money and awareness of acromegaly (a rare condition her father suffered from). Additionally, she maintains a small social media presence but prefers keeping her private life out of view. Her father’s tragic death in 1993 marked a sad loss; yet Robin has gone on to create her own identity through carrying on his legacy and creating new identities of her own.
She is a WWE Hall of Famer
In order to be honored by being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, one must have made an outstanding contribution to professional wrestling – whether through competition, work with other leagues or just making an impression in general. At their induction ceremonies, these individuals will receive both an engraved plaque and video tribute honoring them for their service.
Robin Christensen-Roussimoff once attempted to become a wrestler herself but that endeavor didn’t last. Since then she has decided to focus on acting and is immensely proud of the legacy her father left her, often giving talks about him at events such as Bud Carson’s Wrestling Convention.
She stars as her father’s documentary star, Andre the Giant: His Documentary. For millions of fans worldwide, Andre was much more than an iconic wrestler or iconic actor – he was an amazing father and caring husband, too!
She is the daughter of Andre the Giant
Robin Christensen-Roussimoff is the daughter of Andre the Giant, an iconic wrestler who died in 1993. Based in Seattle, Washington and working as an actress, she keeps her personal life private while protecting his legacy firmly as sole heir of his estate and demands royalties for any use of his likeness or image.
Relationships between Andre and his daughter could often become tenuous due to her physical separation and his busy wrestling gig schedule, with him traveling across the country for wrestling shows and rarely making time for her. According to Jackie McAuley, Andre regretted not spending more time with his daughter.
Robin has made every effort to uphold her father’s legacy despite their tenuous relationship. She has taken part in various charity events to bring awareness of acromegaly, which caused his size. Robin is often complimented on how similar she looks to him and is proudly an ambassador of Andre The Giant Memorial Foundation.
