Christopher Lloyd, 2002

Christoper Lloyd

Christopher Lloyd played the role of Klingon Commander Kruge in the 1984 film Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. He is perhaps best recognized for his roles on the television series Taxi and the successful Back to the Future films.

Born in Stamford, Connecticut, Lloyd attended the prestigious Fessenden School in Massachusetts and later Staples High School in Connecticut, graduating from the latter in 1957. Since embarking on a career in acting, he has appeared in over a hundred film and television projects as well as over 200 stage productions, and has become a highly recognized figure in show business.

Lloyd first rose to fame as Reverend Jim Ignatowski on the ABC (and later NBC) television comedy Taxi. Lloyd won two Emmy Awards for his role as the lovable, burnt-out Ignatowski, one in 1982 and another in 1983. Coincidentally (as revealed in the episode "Jim Joins the Network"), Lloyd's character was a huge fan of Star Trek who resented NBC's decision to cancel the show. However, one of the character's qualms about the series was the male Romulan commander (in "Balance of Terror"), whom he believed "did things no Romulan would ever do."

Did You Know that, according to Marina Sirtis, the writing staff of Star Trek: The Next Generation found Deanna Troi so difficult to write for, that she was almost dropped in November 1987 after the character went unused in "Hide and Q", "Datalore", "11001001" and "Heart of Glory"?
