A trainee stuntman and actor with a background in martial arts and freerunning, Lloyd grew up in Cardiff and took up martial arts initially when he was 9-years-old to build confidence. When he was 14, he started practicing parkour/freerunning alongside training as a sprinter. At the age of 19, he took up his main martial art, Ninjutsu, which gave him a chance to practice with a range of weapons as well as unarmed combat. He has since taken up HEMA, with a focus on Italian longsword, which has fine-tuned his abilities with bladed weapons. He has a passion and respect for film and the performing arts, and is building up his experience as an actor as well as being 'that guy who can hit the deck'.
