For his performance on the series during its 1982 and 1983 seasons, the actor garnered two additional Emmy Awards, both in the "Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy, Variety or Music Series" category.
Lloyd is a popular character actor, known for his height, thin physicality, raspy voice and animated facial expressions. Though he has become an icon among other character actors, Lloyd is often perceived as a loner who prefers to keep his personal life separate from his acting career,
and he rarely does interviews. "I was just very shy," he told the British newspaper The Guardian in 2010. "I was never anxious to do talk shows as I didn't know what to say. And I don't feel I have any inherent interest."
Lloyd has been married and divorced four times: to Catherine Boyd, Kay Tornborg, Carol Vanek and Jane Walker Wood. His nephew is actor Sam Lloyd, who played lawyer Ted Buckland on the American comedy series Scrubs.
Lloyd is an avid cyclist, once touring through Italy on a bicycle. He also enjoys hiking and fly-fishing. After his home in Montecito, California, was destroyed in the Tea Fire—a wildfire that destroyed more than 200 homes in Montecito and Santa Barbara, California, in the fall of 2008—Lloyd bought a home in Montana.
