Norman Lloyd (born Norman Perlmutter; November 8, 1914) is an American actor, producer, and director with a career in entertainment spanning nine decades. He has worked in every major facet of the industry including radio, theatre, television and film dating back to the Great Depression, and at 100 years of age is the oldest working Hollywood actor of 2015. In the 1930s he apprenticed with Eva Le Gallienne's Civic Repertory Theatre and worked with such influential companies as the Federal Theatre Project's Living Newspaper unit, the Mercury Theatre founded by Orson Welles and John Houseman, and the Group Theatre. Lloyd's long professional association with Alfred Hitchcock began with his memorable performance as a Nazi agent in the 1942 film Saboteur. He went on to produce Hitchcock's long-running anthology television series, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and he directed and produced episodic television throughout the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. As an actor Lloyd has appeared in over 60 films and television shows, with his roles including Bodalink in Limelight, Mr. Nolan in Dead Poets Society and Mr. Letterblair in The Age of Innocence. In the 1980s, he gained a new generation of fans for playing Dr. Daniel Auschlander, one of the starring roles on the medical drama St. Elsewhere.
Lloyd's wife of 75 years, Peggy, died on August 30, 2011, at the age of 98. The couple had two children, one of whom is the actress Josie Lloyd.
Lloyd began practicing his lifelong hobby of tennis at the age of eight. "With the application and time I have devoted to it, I should have been a reigning World Champion", he said in a 2000 interview. His opponents have included Charlie Chaplin, Joseph Cotten and Spencer Tracy. Lloyd was still playing twice a week until July 2015, when he had a fall. He stopped driving in 2014 at his son's insistence.
Lloyd turned 100 on November 8, 2014.
