Robin Christensen-Roussimoff

Robin Christensen-Roussimoff has served as an admirable custodian of Andre the Giant’s legacy since his passing away in 1993. A tall and stunningly attractive woman, she lives in Seattle.

She is an actress who was the consultant for her father’s movie and appeared in the television documentary Andre the Giant. Over time she has created a secure life for herself among fans.

Her Parents

Robin Christensen-Roussimoff was born in France on March 16, 1979 to parents Andre Roussimoff and Jean Christensen, with no siblings to speak of and her only uncle being Jacques Roussimoff. At an early age she moved with her parents to Seattle, Washington in the United States; it remains home today.

She earned both her high school diploma and university degree, becoming an accomplished artist along the way. Additionally, she strived to keep his legacy alive by appearing in Andre the Giant film.

At 44, Robin remains single and prefers keeping her personal life private from media scrutiny, and has not been seen with anyone recently. Nonetheless, she has made Seattle her home and is doing everything possible to honor the memory of her late father through continued research; even reaching out to some of his former wrestling circle acquaintances for information about him.

Her Personal Life

Robin Christensen-Roussimoff experienced first-hand how being raised by famous parents could both benefit her and burden her, especially with regard to her father Andre the Giant (an entertaining wrestler and actor, but not particularly close with Robin).

Robin died suddenly of a heart attack in Paris hotel room in 1993 and learned of it only when his lawyer left an answering machine message about it. He did not attend his own funeral service or receive notification of it from anyone other than Robin himself.

Robin has worked to keep her personal life out of the spotlight, yet has made no secret of her affection for her late father whom she even appeared in a documentary about him. Additionally, Robin was hired as a consultant on an upcoming movie about Andre the Giant but no indications exist as to if or when she has children of her own.

Her Career

Robin Christensen-Roussimoff has established herself in multiple fields with great success. She has established herself in wrestling despite preferring to keep her personal life private.

She is the daughter of Andre Rene Roussimoff, who was both an esteemed wrestler and actor. Unfortunately, most of his adult years were spent traveling around – limiting how much time was available for bonding between father and daughter.

Robin has since transitioned into professional wrestling while also helping promote Brandon M. Easton’s book Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven. She holds licensing rights to her father’s image which forms a significant portion of her income stream; making appearances at events such as Comic-Con to discuss his legacy is not uncommon either.

Her Net Worth

Robin Christensen-Roussimoff was born around 1979 in France but currently resides in Seattle. Her social media presence and private life remain relatively minimal; her famous wrestler father Andre the Giant died in 1993 despite having an estranged relationship with Robin.

At his time, he was one of the most beloved and highest-paying wrestlers ever. Over his long career he amassed much wealth and property; in his will he left two-thirds to caretakers of his Ellerbe, North Carolina ranch, while giving the remaining third to his daughter.

Robin currently earns a substantial sum by attending Comic Cons and promoting Brandon M. Easton’s book about her father titled Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven. Additionally, she provides consulting services for wrestling documentaries; in her sole capacity as the sole heir of Andre’s legacy she boasts an estimated net worth of $10 Million.
