Orlando Bloom was born on January 13th 1977 at Canterbury. In four years, Orlando lost his father and guardian of the boy and his older sister became a close family friend Bloom - Colin Stone. When Orlando was 13 years old, the mother confessed to him what Stone is his biological father.
As a child, Bloom was interested in art, theater and photography. He first appeared on stage in productions of the school theater.
In 16 years, Orlando went to London, playing in the company of the National Youth Theatre, and then received a grant to study at the annual British-American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
On television, Bloom made his debut in 1996 in an episode of "accident", and a year later starred in the drama "Wilde".
Next Blum continued his studies at the London Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
By the end of the third year of study Blum took part in the casting for the role of Faramir in the adaptation of Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings", but was refused, and offer to play the role of the elf Legolas, and in 2000 went to the 18 months in New Zealand, where the shooting took place the first part of the trilogy - "The Fellowship of the Ring".
In 2004, Blum took part in two big-budget Hollywood movie "Troy" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," and in 2005 was involved in two other projects, "Kingdom of Heaven" and "Elizabethtown".
