Lloyd Hughes (21 October 1897 – 6 June 1958) was an American silent film actor.
Life and career
Born in Bisbee, Arizona, Hughes received his education at the Los Angeles Polytechnic School. He sought a career as an actor early in life, and his clean-cut appearance and ability soon gained him recognition. His first role as leading man was opposite Mary Pickford in Tess of the Storm Country. Other notable early roles included Love Never Dies opposite Madge Bellamy, and The Lost World with Wallace Beery and Bessie Love. Hughes starred opposite Mary Astor eight times and was Colleen Moore's leading man in five of her most popular films. He made the transition to sound smoothly, and worked as an actor through the late 1930s, including a role with John Barrymore in the 1930 augmented remake version of The Sea Beast, Moby Dick.
Hughes met his future wife, Gloria Hope, on the set of Tess of the Storm Country. The couple eventually had two children, a boy, Donald, and a girl, Isabel.
