Since news broke that Norman had died in his sleep on Tuesday, a number of his fellow actors and those who knew him have been paying tribute.

Judd Apatow – who directed Norman in Trainwreck – wrote on Instagram: “Norman Lloyd loved to tell stories and make people laugh… Every moment with Norman was special.

“He loved to tell this story about his wife Peggy. She was in bed and was very ill. She said to him ‘Norman, how long have we been married?’. He replied, ‘seventy years’. She said, ‘I think we’re going to make it’. I miss him already.”

Amy Schumer also shared a photo of Norman on set, writing: “We will miss you.”

Referencing Norman’s early work with Orson Welles, Ben Stiller tweeted: “What a career. From Welles to Apatow.”

Norman was married to his wife, Peggy, for 75 years, until her death in 2011.

They had a son, Charlie, and a daughter, Josie, who died in her eighties in 2020.
