Early life[edit | edit source]
Sabrina Lloyd was born in Fairfax, Virginia. At age 12, she began acting by scoring the role of Pepper in a Mount Dora production of Annie.
When she was 15, she participated in a student exchange program which allowed her to spend a year in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. While there, she got some training at the Brisbane Royal Theatre Company. She went on to perform exclusively in theater until she was 18. Lloyd moved to New York when she was 18 to pursue a film career.
Career[edit | edit source]
She continued to perform in local theater such as the Baystreet Players in Eustis, and the Ice House Theater in Mt. Dora, appearing in productions of Grease, Crimes of the Heart, and The Wizard of Oz. She made a guest appearance on an episode of Law & Order called "Intolerance", which got her a new agent and launched her career.
Her first breakout role in feature films was the movie Chain of Desire, followed by a starring role in Father Hood with Patrick Swayze. She appeared in the 1993 music video for the song "Iris" by The Breeders. Lloyd also made appearances on television, starring in the TV movies The Coming Out of Heidi Leiter, an episode of Lifestories: Families In Crisis and Love Off Limits.
In 1995, Lloyd took on the role of Wade Welles, one of the original four characters in the sci-fi TV show Sliders. In its third season, Sliders slowly grew to embrace a larger audience, but the series was still cancelled by Fox. In 1997, the show was picked up by the Sci-fi Channel, but Lloyd decided to option out of her contract to pursue new roles. She quickly landed a co-starring role as associate producer Natalie Hurley in the ABC sitcom, Sports Night, which satirizes sports and news coverage.
In 2005, she starred as Terry Lake on the television show, Numb3rs, but she left after the first season. Currently, Lloyd is the lead actress in the independent film Universal Signs.
