Lloyd Whitlock (January 2, 1891 – January 8, 1966) was a prolific American actor who began working during Hollywood's silent era. Born in 1891, he appeared in 199 films between 1916 and 1949. Distinguished by his height and stature, he became especially known for playing heavies in B-movie westerns.[1][2][3]


Lloyd was born in Springfield, Missouri, to James Whitlock and Mary Wadlow.[4][5] After appearing in dozens of silent films, Lloyd successfully made the transition to the talkies, appearing on-screen through the early 1940s.[5] He married Mary Gibsone, a Canadian citizen, in Los Angeles in 1919. The pair had a daughter together. Lloyd died in 1966 in Los Angeles.[6]
