Norman Lloyd’s son Michael Lloyd told the Hollywood Reporter that his father passed on at his Los Angeles home. However, he did not reveal the cause of death.

Lloyd had an expansive career that spanned over 70 years. The Emmy nominee was best known for portraying a villain in Hitchcock’s “Saboteur” and as a physician on the medical drama “St. Elsewhere.”

However, his first love was theater as he joined the legendary Mercury Theatre in the mid-1930s. Lloyd played a poet in the adaptation of “Julius Caesar.”

The now-late director got nominated for two Emmys throughout his career. Lloyd’s close friend, a TV producer, Dean Hargrove, told Deadline:

Film critic Todd McCarthy also remembered Lloyd and described him as a bald man with stature who filled any room he stepped into with his deep, rich, booming voice.

In November 2014, McCarthy paid tribute to him on his 100th birthday and said he was the only one who could describe the 20th and 21st century of the American film, theater, and television evocatively.
