Danny Lloyd

Biography

Daniel "Danny" Lloyd or "Dan" Lloyd (born January 1, 1973) is an American former child actor. His first and best-known role is that of Danny Torrance in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, with Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall. He was selected for the role of Danny Torrance due to his ability to maintain his concentration for extended periods of time. Danny was chosen over other finalist Tim Tiedeman. In the DVD commentary by Garrett Brown and John Baxter, they state that Kubrick was able to film all of Danny's parts without the six year old actor realizing he was in a horror movie. He was also interviewed in The Making of The Shining (1980), filmed by Vivian Kubrick and then acted in only one other film, the made-for-TV movie Will: The Autobiography of G. Gordon Liddy. The film was based on the autobiography of G. Gordon Liddy, who spent 54 months in prison following the Watergate scandal. Lloyd played the young Liddy.
