Emily Lloyd Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Sep 29, 1970
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

An actress of considerable talent who made a memorably searing debut as a rebellious, foul-mouthed teen whose promiscuity lands her in dire circumstances in [[Feature~V54933~Wish You Were Here~wishyouwerehere]] (1987), fame has sadly eluded Emily Lloyd due to string of bad circumstances and a struggle with her own inner demons. Born the daughter of actor [[Performer~P54599~Roger Lloyd Pack~rogerlloydpack]] in London, England, in 1970, young Emily took a shine to the stage as a teen and soon began to pursue acting as a serious career. Though initially rejected following her audition for director [[Performer~P99289~David Leland~davidleland]]'s [[Feature~V54933~Wish You Were Here~wishyouwerehere]], the undaunted actress eventually convinced the director that she was right for the part. Her performance, based on the childhood experiences of brothel madam [[Performer~P368825~Cynthia Payne~cynthiapayne]], so moved audiences that the pretty young actress was nominated for a BAFTA award and won a Best Actress award from the National Society of Film Critics. Subsequently relocating to America to essay a role as yet another rebellious teen in [[Performer~P110695~Susan Seidelman~susanseidelman]]'s [[Feature~V10923~Cookie~cookie]] (1989), Lloyd continued her bid for stateside fame with appearances in [[Feature~V24485~In Country~incountry]] (also 1989) and later returned to her native England for a role as a murderous dance hall girl in the fact-based [[Feature~V9161~Chicago Joe and the Showgirl~chicagojoeandtheshowgirl]] (1990). Though it seemed that Lloyd was successful in alternating between British and American roles, her stateside appearances were ultimately relegated to supporting performances in such films as [[Feature~V41539~A River Runs Through It~ariverrunsthroughit]] (1992) and [[Feature~V154958~Welcome to Sarajevo~welcometosarajevo]] (1997). It was around this time that Lloyd began a career-stalling battle with obsessive-compulsive disorder following a trip to India, and despite a stay in Marchwood Priority in attempts to overcome OCD, Lloyd would continue to appear onscreen. Eventually winning that battle with OCD with a combination of professional treatment and reassured self-confidence, Lloyd suffered yet another minor career setback when she was stopped by police in Los Angeles and charged with driving without a license and not wearing a seatbelt. Despite her hardships, Lloyd continued to appear in such films as [[Feature~V175589~Boogie Boy~boogieboy]] (1997) and [[Feature~V174206~Woundings~woundings]] (1998) before falling back into the good graces of critics with a role in the independent thriller The Honeytrap (2002). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
