Lloyd was best known to television audiences for his role on NBC’s St. Elsewhere as Dr. Daniel Auschlander, a veteran physician who dealt with his own liver cancer diagnosis. Lloyd was with the series for its entire six-season run from 1982-88.

Lloyd’s acting career dates back to Orson Welles’ Mercury Theatre company, of which he was the last surviving member. He was part of its first production in 1937 - a modern-dress adaptation of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar on Broadway titled Caesar.

He originally was cast in Welles’ classic film Citizen Kane and traveled with Welles to Hollywood. When the film ran into budget problems, Lloyd quit the project and returned to New York, later making his screen debut as the spy who fell from the top of the Statue of Liberty in Alfred Hitchcock’s Saboteur (1942). His other film roles include Hitchcock’s thriller Spellbound (1945), 1952’s Limelight (with Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin), Audrey Rose (1977), FM (1978), The Nude Bomb (1980), Dead Poets Society (1989), The Age of Innocence (1993), and Trainwreck (2015).

In 1957, Hitchcock hired Lloyd as an associate producer for his TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents. He went on to executive produce The Hitchcock Hour as well as act and direct in several episodes of both series. During the 1970s, Lloyd earned Emmy nominations for the NBC series The Name of the Game as a producer, and for The Hollywood Television Theatre’s TV movie Steambath as an executive producer.

Lloyd’s acting credits for television include Night Gallery, Kojak, Quincy M.E., Wiseguy, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Murder, She Wrote, Wings, The Practice, and Modern Family.

Lloyd died May 11, 2021, in Los Angeles, California. He was 106.
