Emily Lloyd Undressed
Emily Lloyd (born as Emily Lloyd Pack) is a British actress born on 29 September 1970 to Roger Lloyd Pack and Sheila Ball in London. Lloyd comes from an actors' family: Roger Lloyd Pack is familiar as a stage actor and well known as Trigger in the British hit sitcom ''Only Fools and Horses'', and Sheila Ball is a stage agent and was a longtime secretary at Harold Pinter's stage agency. Her grandfather Charles Lloyd Pack had appeared in movies like ''The Mirror crack'd'', ''If'', ''Three Worlds of Gulliver'' and ''Dracula''.
Emily's parents divorced when she was two. She and her younger sister Charlotte grew up with their mother. Emily's desire to become an actress was inflamed when she saw Elizabeth Taylor in ''National Velvet''.
At age 15 she was taking acting lessons at the famous Italia Conti School in London but then she received her big chance: director David Leland chose her for the title role in his movie ''Wish You Were Here''. The movie was based loosely on the youth memoirs of British scandal Madam Cynthia Payne.
''Wish You Were Here'' was a surprising success at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival and Emily Lloyd was celebrated as new and fresh talent. She received the Evening Standard Film Award and the Award of the National Society of Film Critics in 1987. She was also nominated for a BAFTA award.
In 1988 Hollywood knocked on her door. She played in ''Cookie'' by Susan Seidelman and ''In Country'' by Norman Jewison but both movies were flops. In ''Cookie'', she played the freaked-out daughter of a Mafia don. Peter Falk, Jerry Lewis and Dianne Wiest were her co-stars. ''In Country'' was an adaption of the Bobbie Ann Mason novel of the same name. In this movie she played Samantha, a young girl from the 1980s who has tried to find out and understand the role her father played before he died in the Vietnam war. Bruce Willis played her uncle Emmett, a Vietnam veteran who suffers from post traumatic stress disorder.
Her next film was ''Chicago Joe and the Showgirl''. Director Bernard Rose and writer David Yallop adapted the essay [http://www.netcharles.com/orwell/essays/decline-of-english-murder.htm Decline of the English Murder] by George Orwell, where he described the well-known Cleft chin murders case from war-torn London. Two young people - Elizabeth Jones, an underaged waitress (who has dreamed of a moviestar career) and Karl Hulton, a deserted American GI - went on a 5-day spree where they killed three people. The GI, played by Kiefer Sutherland, was the only American soldier who was executed in Great Britain.
In 1992 she played in her most successful movie to date. ''A River Runs Through It'' is Robert Redford's screen adaption of the novel by Norman MacLean. Two u
