Lloyd Bochner ACTOR


Lloyd Bochner was born on July 29th, 1924 in Toronto, Canada with the middle name Wolfe.  He first developed an interest in acting at a young age and by the age of eleven, he was already being heard on Canadian radio programs.  He worked as an actor in Canada for quite a while in the beginning of his career appearing on a number of Canadian television shows and films.  He even earned two Liberty Awards in Canada for his talent in the industry. 
After high school he enrolled at the University of Toronto, however he left college early to serve in 1943 with the Royal Canadian Navy.  Upon completing his military service, Buchner did return to school and graduated with a B.A in 1947.    
By 1951, Bochner felt that he had more than enough experience in the industry to relocate to New York City and began appearing on American television shows such as, "Hong Kong" (1960), "Twilight Zone" (1963), "Dr. Kildare" (1963), "The Legend of Jessie James" (1965), "Perry Mason" (1964), "The Green Hornet" (1966), "Hogan's Heroes" (1967), "The Big Valley" (1967) and "The Virginian" (1967-1971).
Bochner never limited himself to portray one specific type of character, he took on any role which challenged him playing anything from a homosexual doctor, a warlock, a villain, upper-class citizen, soldier or even a politician.
Along with his numerous television credits he also graced the big screen appearing in such films over the course of his career as, "Point Blank" (1967), "Tony Rome" (1967) starring Frank Sinatra, "The Detective" (1968), "Ulzana's Raid" (1972) starring Burt Lancaster and Richard Jaeckel, "The Man in the Glass Booth" (1975), "Mr. No Legs" (1979), "The Lonely Lady" (1983) and "Fine Gold" (1989).
Some of his latest roles he added to his credits was a reoccurring role on the television series, "Dynasty" (1981) starring John Forsythe, Joan Collins and Linda Evans, "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" (1984) starring Jane Seymour and the films, "Loyal Opposition" (1998), "Legend of the Mummy" (1998) and his final film role, "The Commission" (2003).
In addition to his work on radio, television and film, he had such a remarkable voice that he worked on a number of voice over projects such as the animated cartoon version of, "Batman: The Animated Series" (1992-1994) and "The New Batman Adventures" (1997-1998).
Lloyd Bochner married only once to Ruth Bochner and they had three children and remained married until he passed away at the age of eighty one, on October 29th, 2005 in Santa Monica, California after suffering from cancer.
