Lloyd Bridges biography

Lloyd Bridges

Date of birth: January 15, 1913 (Died March 10, 1998)

Born in San Leandro, California, the senior Bridges grew up in various Northern California towns. Acting is usually not something parents encourage to take up as a lifetime vocation, and Lloyd's father was no exception.

His father was in the hotel business and had his sights set on his son becoming a lawyer, but the acting bug bit while Lloyd was attending the University of California at Los Angeles.

From then on, there was no looking back.

It was also at university where Lloyd met his future wife -- Dorothy Simpson Bridges -- and the two would remain together for more than 50 years, making them a truly unique Hollywood couple who would give birth to three sons, two of whom -- Beau and Jeff -- would also go on to be actors.
