Early life

Bloom was born in Canterbury, Kent, on January 13th, 1977, and named after the 16th-century English composer Orlando Gibbons. Samantha Bloom, his older sister, has died.

Bloom's initial assumption was that his biological father was his mother's husband, Harry Bloom (1913–1981), a South African-born anti-apartheid novelist who died when Bloom was four years old. However, Bloom's mother told him that his biological father was actually Colin Stone, his mother's partner and family friend. Following Harry Bloom's death, Stone, the principal of the Concorde International language school, became Orlando Bloom's legal guardian.

Sonia Constance Josephine (née Copeland), Bloom's mother, was born in Kolkata, India, and the niece of Francis John Copeland, a physician and surgeon, and Betty Constance Josephine (née Walker). Bloom is a cousin of photographer Sebastian Copeland, who is a student at the University of On her website. Bloom's mother's family lived in Tasmania (Australia), Japan, and India, and some of them were of English descent, with some of them coming from Kent.

In the Church of England, Bloom was brought up. He attended St Peter's Methodist Primary School and later the junior school of The King's School before going to St Edmund's School Canterbury. Bloom was discovered to be dyslexic, and his mother encouraged him to enroll in art and drama classes. After being prompted to action following his school award award presentation to panto actor Richard Sieben in 1992, he moved to London to complete a two-year A-Level course in Drama, Photography, and Sculpture at Fine Arts College, Hampstead. He then joined the National Youth Theatre, spent two seasons in there, as well as a scholarship to study at the British American Drama Academy. Bloom began acting on television shows in Casualty and Midsomer Murders, and later made his film debut in Wilde (1997), opposite Stephen Fry, before joining the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where he studied acting.

Personal life

Bloom has said that he strives to "not exclude himself from real life as much as possible." Bloom rescued and adopted Sidi, a black Saluki mix with a white border on his chest, while filming in Morocco for Kingdom of Heaven.

He became a full member of SGI-UK (the UK branch of Soka Gakkai International), a lay Buddhist group affiliated with Nichiren's teachings.

Bloom has been active with Global Green, an environmental company, since the early 2000s. He has updated his London home to use solar panels, recycle scrap materials, and use energy efficient lightbulbs as part of his environmental involvement. UNICEF has invited Bloom to serve as an international ambassador.

In 2002, he co-starred opposite English actress Kate Beckinsale in a Gap television commercial directed by Cameron Crowe.

Bloom has a tattoo of the Elvish word "nine" on his right wrist, a nod to his appearance in The Lord of the Rings as one of the nine members of the Fellowship of the Ring. The other participants of "The Fellowship" (Sean Astin, Sean Bean, Billy Boyd, Ian McKellen, Dominic Monaghan, Viggo Mortensen, and Elijah Wood) all got the same tattoo, with the exception of John Rhys-Davies, who got the tattoo instead. Bloom also has a sun tattoo on his lower left abdomen, which he acquired at age 15 before moving to London.

Bloom took part in the 'Australia Unites' fundraiser on February 12, 2009, raising funds for the victims of the Australian bushfires.

Bloom was named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador on October 12, 2009. He has been active in the company since 2007 and has visited Nepali schools and villages in support of sanitation and education programs. During the 2014 pro-Russian unrest in Ukraine, Bloom visited Sloviansk, eastern Ukraine, to raise concerns about the education crisis facing children.

Bloom has suffered with injuries: he broke his left arm and cracked his skull three times, broke his nose while playing rugby union, fractured his right leg skiing in Switzerland, broke his left leg, and broke his right leg while snowboarding. He also broke his back when attempting to reach a roof terrace of a friend's house and fell three stories. When shooting The Lord of the Rings, he also broke some ribs.

Four hooded teenagers broke into Bloom, California, on July 13, 2009, stealing almost half of a million dollars worth of property. The robbers, dubbed the "Bling Ring," pounded young celebrities' homes. The bulk of Bloom's loolished goods were recovered.

From 2003 to 2005, Bloom had a "on-and-off" friendship with American actress Kate Bosworth, from 2003 to the end of the relationship in September 2006.

Miranda Kerr, an Australian supermodel, began dating Bloom in late 2007. They announced their engagement in June 2010 and then married the following month. Kerr gave birth to their son in Los Angeles on January 6th. Bloom and Kerr announced on October 25 that they had split several months earlier and planned to end their relationship. By the end of 2013, they had been divorced.

Bloom began dating American singer and songwriter Katy Perry in January 2016; however, the pair announced in February 2017 that they had broken in February 2017. They reconnected in February 2018 and became engaged on February 14th. It was revealed on March 5, 2020, the couple were expecting their first child together, according to Perry's "Never Worn White" music video. Perry gave birth to their daughter on August 26, 2020.

Orlando Bloom Career

Career

Bloom's first appearance on the screen was in a small role, as a rent boy, in the 1997 film Wilde. Two days after graduating from Guildhall in 1999, he was cast in his first major role, playing Legolas in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy (2001–2003). He had originally auditioned for the part of Faramir, who does not appear until the second movie, but the director, Peter Jackson, cast him as Legolas instead. While shooting a scene, he broke a rib after falling off a horse, but eventually recovered and continued shooting. At the same time, Bloom also played a brief role in Ridley Scott's war film Black Hawk Down as PFC Todd Blackburn. In 2002, he was chosen as one of the Teen People "25 Hottest Stars Under 25" and was named People's hottest Hollywood bachelor in the magazine's 2004 list. All members of the cast of the Rings films were nominated for Best Ensemble Acting at the Screen Actors Guild Awards for three years in a row, finally winning in 2003 for the third film, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Bloom has also won other awards, including European Film Awards, Hollywood Festival Award, Empire Awards and Teen Choice Awards, and has been nominated for many others. Most of Bloom's box office successes have been as part of an ensemble cast.

Bloom next starred opposite Keira Knightley and Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, which was a blockbuster hit during the summer of 2003. After the success of Pirates, Bloom next took to the screen as Paris, the man who effectively started the Trojan War, in the 2004 Spring blockbuster, Troy opposite Brad Pitt, Eric Bana and Peter O'Toole. He subsequently played the lead roles in Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven and Cameron Crowe's Elizabethtown (both 2005). In 2006, Bloom starred in sequel Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and in the independently made Haven, of which he was also executive producer. In the same year he was one of the guest stars in the sitcom Extras, in which he portrayed an exaggeratedly arrogant, narcissistic version of himself who had a great loathing for Johnny Depp (his co-star in Pirates of the Caribbean); Bloom pushed for Extras to go further by making his part unlikable, and contributed to the gag about him admiring Depp out of sheer jealousy, that Depp was far more talented than he was, not to mention rated higher than him on the 'top hottest' charts. Also in 2006, Bloom was the most searched male on Google News. As of May 2007, Bloom has appeared in four of the top 15 highest-grossing films of all time.

Bloom then again portrayed Will Turner, in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, released on 24 May 2007. Bloom, who had intended to become a stage actor after graduating from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, had stated that he would like to leave films for a time and instead appear in stage roles, and is "avidly looking for the right sort of material that [he] can do something with" and go "back to basics." During the summer of 2007 he appeared in a London revival of In Celebration, a play by David Storey. His character was one of three brothers returning home for their parents' 40th wedding anniversary. On 24 August 2007 he made his first ever TV commercial appearance on late-night Japanese TV, promoting the Uno brand of cosmetics maker Shiseido. A "one night only", 2-minute version of the Sci-Fi themed commercial kicked off the product's marketing campaign. In 2008 he signed on to play a small role in the British film An Education but dropped out to take the lead in Johnnie To's film Red Circle. Also in 2009, he was one of many stars to appear in New York, I Love You, which contained 12 short films in one.

Bloom appeared in The Three Musketeers opposite Milla Jovovich, Logan Lerman, Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Juno Temple and Christoph Waltz, released in 2011. Bloom reprised his role as Legolas in parts two and three of The Hobbit, Peter Jackson's three-part prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy. He made his Broadway stage debut as Romeo in Romeo and Juliet in August 2013 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The New York Times theatre critic Ben Brantley described Bloom's performance as "a first-rate Broadway debut" in the title role: "For once, we have a Romeo who evolves substantively, from a posturing youth in love with love, to a man who discovers the startling revelation of real love, with a last-act descent into bilious, bitter anger that verges on madness."

In October 2011, Bloom stated that he would like to return for a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film. Bloom did reprise his character, Will Turner, in a supporting role in the fifth film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which was released in May 2017.

Bloom starred in the Trafalgar Studios production of Killer Joe in 2018. Bloom is currently starring in the Amazon Prime TV show Carnival Row, which was filming its second season in Prague before temporarily postponing production due to COVID-19. Together with a number of his Lord of the Rings co-stars (plus writer Philippa Boyens and director Peter Jackson), on 1 June 2020 he joined Josh Gad's YouTube series Reunited Apart which reunites the cast of popular movies through video-conferencing, and promotes donations to non-profit charities.

In July 2020, Bloom starred in the war film The Outpost in which he portrayed the character of captain Benjamin Keating.
