a fixture in Hollywood for nearly a full century, Norman Lloyd
has passed away. An actor, producer, and director who's been in show business since 1923, Lloyd might be best known for his role as Dr. Daniel Auschlander in the medical drama series St. Elsewhere
in the 1980s, though that's just one of many, many roles appreciated by his fans. Sadly, a family friend recently confirmed to Deadline that Lloyd died in his sleep on May 10 at his Los Angeles home at the age of 106.
"Norman had a great third act, with an annual birthday party until age 105 filled with notables," Dean Hargrove
, Lloyd's close friend and a fellow TV producer, said of Lloyd's life and legacy. "He was active until the end, steeped in great stories about the early days of Hollywood and New York theater."
Other friends of Lloyd have also been paying tribute. Posting a photo of herself with Lloyd and her father,
