The actor’s feature career included turns in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire, in which he took on the part of Bartemius “Barty” Crouch, Sr, the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. Born in North London in 1944, Lloyd was the son of Charles Lloyd-Pack who appeared in several Hammer horror films. He was also the father of actress Emily Lloyd.
