British actor who came to public attention as Legolas in the 2001, 2002, 2003 trilogy of "Lord of the Rings." He followed that role with several movie performances, "Pirates of the Caribbean" with Johnnie Depp (2003) and its sequels as well as "Troy" (2004) "Ned Kelley" (2004) and others.
In 1993, at age 16, he joined the National Youth Theatre in London and earned a scholarship at the British American Drama Academy. He made his screen debut in "Wilde," a movie based on Oscar Wilde's life. He was then accepted to Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London and appeared in several stage productions. After graduation, he appeared in a BBC television series, "Midsomer Murders" and had a small part in the movie, "Black Hawk Down" (released in 2001).
He considers himself accident-prone and suffers from dyslexia which made his early education difficult. His father, South African novelist and activist Harry Bloom, died when Orlando was only four years old. Orlando and his older sister, Samantha, also an actress, were raised by their mother. In 1998, he suffered a fall in which he broke his back. Doctors advised him that he could be paralyzed for life but after successful surgery, Bloom regained his mobility.
Bloom is a talented sculptor, vegetarian and animal-lover. He had been dating fellow actor Kate Bosworth for three years but they called it quits in January 2005.
