An enormously talented yet troubled British actress, Emily Lloyd dazzled international critics as a sharp-tongued, sexually precocious young woman in "Wish You Were Here" (1987). Named Best Actress by the National Society of Film Critics and nominated for a BAFTA, Lloyd's star-making performance helped her make the leap to Hollywood. After lead turns in the mob comedy "Cookie" (1989) and the Vietnam War drama "In Country" (1989), she scored a lovely supporting role in Robert Redford's Oscar-winning "A River Runs Through It" (1992). Despite her rapid ascent, her career and life quickly seemed to fall apart. Dogged by a reputation for being difficult after being fired from several films and quitting a 1997 West End production of "Pygmalion," Lloyd experienced a complete breakdown before falling off the public radar. She later discussed the extent of her mental illnesses, revealing that she had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, Tourette's syndrome, attention deficit disorder and chronic insomnia. Although fans and critics held out hope that she would earn the opportunity to live up to her full professional and artistic potential, Emily Lloyd was frank about the fact that she still had a long way to go, health-wise, before she could attempt a comeback.
