Orlando Bloom is a English actor and his current net worth is $40 million.
He was born in Canterbury, Kent, England to his mother Sonia Constance Josephine and his father Harry Bloom.
Growing up he did not know very well the man he called his father. Harry Bloom was a legendary politician activist who fought for civil rights in South Africa and died of a stroke when his kid was only four.
He and his sister were raised by their mother and family friend Colin Stone.
At the age of thirteen he found out that his and his sister’s biological father was in fact Colin. He and Orlando’s mother conceived them after an agreement by his parents, and that Harry was unable to have children.
He went to St. Edmunds School in Canterbury but had some problems in many objects because of his dyslexia, however he was fond of the arts, and liked pottery, photography and sculpturing.
During his time at the school he was active at his local theater and in school plays. In fact, at the age of ten he got his first job as a clay trapper at a pigeon shooting range.
His mother kept encouraging him and his sister to study poetry and prose, which followed by giving readings at Kent Festival.
Orlando and his sister Samantha won several poetry and Bible reciting competitions, but he had always had a thing for acting.
When he was 16 years old he moved to London and entered the National Youth Theater, ending up spending two seasons with them and gained a scholarship to train with the British American Drama Academy.
He then started auditioning for a number of television roles to really start his career and gain some experience.
Landing parts in British television shows like Casualty (1986), Midsomer Murders (1997), and Smack the Pony (1999), Orlando went on and also appeared in the critically acclaimed film Wilde (1997).
While he was attending the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, in 1998, he fell three stories from a rooftop terrace and broke his back.
Then he was told that he might never walk again, but after the doctors performed the surgery he was able to walk out of hospital twelve days later and continued his work.
But one night, seated in the audience was a director named Peter Jackson. He was impressed by Orlando performance and asked him to audition for his new set of movies.
Meanwhile he graduated from Guildhall and began the work for “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, brining Legolas to life, a role which made him famous through this day.
Apart from playing Legolas, he is also known for the roles of Will Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, and Paris in Troy.
As for the fact that he is in a relationship, after the breakup he had with singer Katy Perry, Orlando is now dating a model Kristy Hinze.
