How Old Is Christopher Lloyd?

Christopher Lloyd was born on October 22, 1938.

As of March 25, 2023, he is 84 years old.

Lloyd was born in Stamford, Connecticut, to lawyer Samuel Lloyd and singer Ruth Lloyd, whose brother was Roger Lapham, mayor of San Francisco from 1944 through 1948.

Lloyd began his acting career in high school, where he helped found the school’s acting troupe. He spent several years participating in theater productions in New England in New York before making his Broadway debut in 1969’s Red, White and Maddox.

He made his film debut in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest before landing his first landmark role — Jim Ignatowski in the ABC sitcom Taxi. Though the show was a vehicle for Judd Hirsch (“Alex”), its strong ensemble cast made it a hit whose popularity endures all these years later. Hippie Jim, and his complex life and sensibilities — including being a reverend of sorts — was a big part of that.

A couple of years after Taxi ended, Lloyd took the the big screen in 1985 as Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown opposite Michael J. Fox (“Marty McFly”), of Family Ties fame, in Back to the Future.

That film turned into one of the summer’s blockbusters and led to two sequels, both starring Lloyd and Fox.

In the decades since, Lloyd has continued to act in both film and television series, putting together a prolific list of appearances that range from bit parts to starring roles.

Over the years, Lloyd has been nominated for several acting awards and has won a few, including the Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series — Taxi — in both 1982 and 1983.
