Actor Biography


Born: 1897, Bisbee, AZ

Died: 1958, San Gabriel, CA

Notable Films: Love Never Dies (1921)

Lloyd Hughes was 20 years old when he made his first film in 1918. By the end of the Silent Era he had over 40 films to his credit. Love Never Dies (1921) was his 16th film appearance. He made a handsome and serviceable leading man for many important female stars, including Mary Pickford, Bebe Daniels, Doris Kenyon, Mae Murray, and especially Colleen Moore, with whom he made several films. He was an actor who would not overshadow his co-stars.

His career in the Thirties followed a downward trajectory similar to that of his Love Never Dies co-star Madge Bellamy. By the mid-Thirties he is either well down the cast list or uncredited. His last film was a bit part in Romance of the Redwoods [1939]. He died in 1958 in San Gabriel, California, at the age of 60.
