Frank Lloyd (actor)


Frank Lloyd (actor)

Frank Lloyd is an Australian actor, best-known for his stint as Neville McPhee, one of the original characters of the Australian television soap opera "Home and Away". In a career spanning more than forty years, Lloyd appeared on radio, theatre, television and film.

Lloyd's first roles stemmed from his after-school job as an office boy at 2GB, where he was sometimes asked to appear in radio plays. After finishing school, Lloyd travelled to England, and studied theatre. His first film appearance was as an uncredited messenger in the 1956 film "The Battle of the River Plate".

Lloyd is best-known to Australian audiences for his appearances in television soap operas, working on "The Young Doctors", "Sons and Daughters", and, most notably, the first six months of "Home and Away". He appeared only a few times on film, and, with his work on soap operas providing some notable exceptions, his career on television was largely confined to guest star roles and minor telemovie appearances. However, he worked regularly in theatres throughout his career, with his last performance being a year-long role in a production of "Guys and Dolls".
