Lloyd Bridges ACTOR


Lloyd Bridges was born on January 15th, 1913 in San Leandro, California with the birth name Lloyd Vernet Bridges Jr. to parents Harriet Evelyn and Lloyd Vernet Bridges Sr.  Bridges graduated from Petaluma High School in 1931 and then went on to the University of Los Angeles to study political science.  During his college years he met Dorothy Deam whom later became his one and only wife for a marriage lasting 50 years.  His father had goals for him to enter a career as a lawyer, but it was while attending college that he became interested in acting.    
Bridges became involved in acting first working on Broadway in 1939 in a production of, "Othello".  He then joined Columbia Pictures stock company working on feature films and shorts playing small supporting roles. 
During World War II, Bridges took a break from acting to join the US Coast Guard and directly upon completing serving his country, he returned right back to pursuing his acting career.  When he admitted to the House on Un-American Activities Committee that he was once a member  of the Actors' Lab, which was a group that had links to the Communist Party he was briefly blacklisted from Hollywood.  Once the FBI cleared his name, he returned back to acting in the mid 50's and made his most substantial influence as a television actor.  
He starred in, "Sea Hunt" (1958) which was a very successful syndicated television show.  He portrayed the scuba diver character Mike Nelson and earned a large amount of public recognition.  Directly following the success of this show he then worked on, "The Lloyd Bridges Show" (1962-1963).  He was also a series regular in the western, "The Loner" (1965-1966).  

He made appearances in a number of television shows throughout his career such as, "Paper Dolls" (1984) and "Capital News".  Lloyd Bridges career never slowed down with roles in numerous mini-series such as, "Roots" (1977), "How the West Was Won" (1978), "The Blue and the Gray" (1982) and "Battlestar Galactica" (1978).

Bridges earned two Emmy Award nominations, the first in 1957 for, "The Alcoa Hour" and then 4 decades later for his role portraying, Izzy Madelbaum on an episode of, "Seinfeld" (1997).  His final film role was in, "Jane Austen's Mafia" (1998) which was dedicated in his memory.     

Lloyd Bridges passed away on March 10th, 1998 in Los Angeles, California from natural causes.  Lloyd had four children, but lost his second born son, Garrett Myles Bridges to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome on August 3rd, 1948.  He was survived by his three other children, Beau Bridges, Cindy and Jeff Bridges.  His ashes were given to his family.
