Biography

Lloyd Bochner began his career in show biz at age 11 on the radio. After landing roles on stage and screen in his homeland, Canada, he moved to New York City where he was cast on the Emmy-winning drama "Studio One in Hollywood." In 1960, he became a cast member on "Hong Kong," an adventure show that launched the career of Australian actor Rod Taylor. The exciting series ran for two years and heightened Bochner's profile - as did a starring role in one of the most famous episodes of "The Twilight Zone," "To Serve Man." In that episode, aliens from outer space visit earth and serve man by wiping out such major problems as hunger, disease, and warfare. The twist comes when a code-breaker uncovers the aliens true intentions - to make man healthy so he's all the better to be served - for dinner! Bochner went on to perform on a variety of television programs, from the drama anthology "The Richard Boone Show," to the POW camp comedy "Hogan's Heroes," to the animated adventure series "Batman." In a long list of credits that includes over 190 productions of TV and film, Bochner is best-known for his portrayal of Cecil Colby on the popular 1980s primetime soap opera "Dynasty." Bochner died of cancer in 2005 at the age of 81; he left behind three children, one of whom is actor Hart Bochner.
