ORLANDO BLOOM BIOGRAPHY
Though We haven't seen him in many major roles up to now, but Orlando Bloom has already co-starred in two of the highest-grossing films of all-time. His profile will no doubt increase with his upcoming appearances in a couple of big-budget epic features, such as the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced The Pirates of the Caribbean, and Troy, based on Homer's Iliad and directed by Wolfgang Petersen, which is set for release in 2004.
Celebrities are now trying their stardom to poker, and Orlando Bloom looks like hook up to poker table to smash the pot! He was once caught playing poker together with Lead singer Keith Murray said they were not the only participants fleeced by Johnny Depp, asserting that there were rumors that Orlando Bloom had lost over $800,000 to Johnny Depp. Still, Orlando Bloom's debt may have been settled, and neither the presence of other debts nor any light-headedness the band felt in Depp's presence would excuse a legal debt.
About Orlando Bloom: Whether done up as the blond, blue-eyed, "dreamy-looking" elf Legolas, or in his natural dark-haired, brown-eyed unadorned self, Orlando Bloom has made millions of female admirers swoon for his chiseled good looks. Before going to a big screen, Orlando Bloom managed to struggle through St Edmund's School in Canterbury despite his dyslexia. In 1993, he moved to London and joined the National Youth Theatre, spending two seasons there and earning a scholarship to train at the British American Drama Academy.
Celebrity poker player Orlando Bloom began acting professionally with a television role in an episode of Casualty, and subsequently made his film debut in Wilde in 1997, opposite Stephen Fry, before entering the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where he studied acting, sculpture and photography. In 1998, he broke his back in a three storey fall, and it was briefly feared that he would not regain the ability to walk. However, he made a complete recovery and was able to walk out of the hospital on crutches within twelve days. Orlando Bloom had steel plates inserted into his backbone to support it, which have since been removed, except for a single screw. He regularly practises yoga and Pilates to strengthen his back.
Just days before he graduated from Guildhall in 1999, Orlando Bloom received a telephone call from his agent that would ignite his big-screen career; he had originally auditioned for the role of Faramir in The Lord of the Rings trilogy who is only introduced in the second installment, and while he didn't win that part, he was instead cast in the role of Legolas Greenleaf. The shooting took place over a 14-month period in director Peter Jackson's native New Zealand; a long way from Bloom's home in England.
Orlando Bloom's acting has garnered some critical praise, and his turn in the first episode of The Lord of the Rings was selected as one of the Ten Standout Performances by Young Actors in 2001 by Movieline magazine. Orlando Bloom won in the categories of Best Breakthrough Male Performance at the 2002 MTV Movie Awards, and Best Debut at the 2002 Empire Awards, presented by British film magazine Empire. In 2003, Bloom can be seen in even more action-adventure flicks, including Ned Kelly, based on the life of the infamous Australian outlaw and folk hero. Orlando Bloom plays Joe Byrne, best friend of the title character, portrayed by Heath Ledger.
Jerry Bruckheimer's The Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is set to hit screens in the summer of 2003, and stars Johnny Depp, Bloom, and his Ned Kelly co-star, Geoffrey Rush. In a bit of a departure from the adventure genre, Bloom will star as a British milkman who becomes a boxer in The Calcium Kid. December will see the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
Orlando Bloom may soon be known as the prince of the epic adventure flick, as he's set to co-star in the Wolfgang Petersen-directed, big-budget epic Troy, based on Homer's classic, The Iliad. The film also stars Brad Pitt as ancient hero Achilles, and is scheduled for release sometime in 2004.
