Lloyd manager, Marion Rosenberg, said the actor died Tuesday at his home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, reports guardian.com.
From working in 1939’s US TV drama ‘ On the Streets of New York’ on the nascent NBC network to 21st-century projects including ‘Modern Family’, he has worked across generations.
“If modern film history has a voice, it is Norman Lloyd’s,” reviewer Kenneth Turan wrote in the Los Angeles Times in 2012 after Lloyd regaled a Cannes Film Festival crowd with anecdotes about rarified friends and colleagues including Charlie Chaplin and Jean Renoir.
His most notable film part was as the villain who plummets off the Statue of Liberty in 1942′s ‘Saboteur’, directed by Hitchcock, who also cast Lloyd in the classic thriller 1945’s ‘Spellbound’.
His other movie credits include Jean Renoir’s ‘The Southerner’, Charlie Chaplin’s ‘Limelight’, ‘In Her Shoes’ with Cameron Diaz, and ‘Gangs of New York’ with Daniel Day-Lewis.
Born in 1914, he jumped into acting as a youngster in the 1920s.
