Christopher Lloyd

Christopher Allen Lloyd was born on October 22nd 1938. Christopher was born in Stamford Connecticut, the son of Ruth (née Lapham), a singer who was the sister of San Francisco mayor Roger Lapham, and Samuel R. Lloyd, a lawyer. He attended the Fessenden School, a preparatory school in Newton, Massachusetts. Lloyd was raised in New Canaan, Connecticut and Westport, Connecticuit and Westport, Connecticut where he graduated from Staples High School 1958.
Lloyd seldom appears in public or gives interviews. Some of his best friends, co-stars and fans who have met him describe Lloyd as a very shy and quiet man. His nephew,Sam Lloyd, is best known for playing Ted Buckland, the lawyer on Scrubs. Christopher Lloyd has been married to writer/producer Jane Walker Wood; since 1992. this is his fourth marriage. He is a fan of fly fishing. Lloyd's home was destroyed in the Tea Fire of November 2008 in Montecito, California.

He began acting by age 14 and started apprenticing in summer stock. He took acting classes in New York City at age 19, some at the Neighborhood Playhouse with Sanford Meisner. He appeared in many Broadway productions.
His first major motion picture role and one of my favorites was him as a psychiatric patient in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Other favorites of mine would include Back To The Future 1,2 and 3, The Dream Team, Things To Do In Denver When Your Dead, Angels In The Outfield, The Addams Family, Addams Family Values, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Clue,Mr. Mom.
