Broadway thesp Peggy Lloyd dies at 98

Actress was married to actor Norman Lloyd

Peggy Craven Lloyd, a prominent Broadway actress who was married to actor Norman Lloyd, died Aug 30 at age 98. The Lloyds, who appeared together in the theater starting in the 1930s, had been married for 75 years.

Craven starred opposite John Garfield on Broadway in “Having Wonderful Time” in 1937 and in Catharine Cornell’s production of “Romeo and Juliet.” She and Lloyd met when they co-starred in a play called “Crime,” directed by Elia Kazan.

Lloyd had been a regular in Orson Welles’ Mercury Theater and went on to have a distinguished career as an actor and as an associate of Alfred Hitchcock, directing many of the Hitchcock TV thrillers. During the Lloyds’ early years as a couple they appeared in several shows staged by the acclaimed, WPA-funded Federal Theater, which gained wide respect for its innovative productions.

The couple both appeared in the 2007 documentary “Who Is Norman Lloyd?”

Peggy Lloyd is survived by her husband, who is still a working actor at 96, and two children.
