Orlando Bloom is a world-famous English actor and has featured in many blockbuster films. Bloom is mainly known for his role of Will Turner in “Pirates of the Caribbean”, but also as Legolas in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
Bloom was born as Orlando Jonathan Blanchard Bloom on January 13, 1977. He has one older sister, Samantha Bloom, who was born in 1975. His parents are Sonia Constance Josephine and Harry Bloom.
At the age of 13, a few years after Harry Bloom’s death, Orlando discover that Harry was not his real father. His real father was Colin Stone, a principal of an international language school. Stone was made Bloom’s legal guardian after Harry Bloom’s death.
Even though Orlando Bloom is mainly known as Will Turner from Pirates of the Caribbean, he obtained his first film role in the movie “Wild”. However, international fame did not take too long, only two days after his graduation from Guildhall in 1999, Bloom got the role of Legolas in Lord of the Rings. This role would bring him international fame and a lot of future roles.
Given his success, many people believe that Bloom lives an exuberant lifestyle, but this is far from the truth. Compared to his famous colleagues, Bloom enjoys a relatively simple lifestyle and tries to stay in touch with his humble roots.
Bloom dated Kate Bosworth for three years, from 2003 until 2006. In 2007, Bloom started dating Australian model Miranda Kerr and the couple married three years later in 2010. Kerr and Bloom has a son together, Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom, who was born in January 2011.
Unfortunately the marriage was not meant to last and the couple announced their divorce in October 2013. Despite his breakup with Miranda Kerr, Bloom is still widely popular in Australia.
