Orlando Bloom - Pirates of the Caribbean
Orlando Bloom has lept onto the screen and into the hearts of millions - first for his role of Legolas in Lord of the Rings, and now as a pirate lover in Pirates of the Caribbean.
Orlando was born on January 13, 1977 in the historic town of Caterbury, in Kent, England. His first movie was Wilde, in 1997. In 2001, his second movie, Lord of the Rings, catapulted him to instant international fame. In it he played Legolas, the blonde elf who stands by Aragorn and Gandalf to see that Middle Earth is saved from destruction.
Orlando was of course also in the following two movies, The Two Towers and Return of the King. But in the middle of that release cycle he also struck gold with his role in Pirates of the Caribbean. He plays Will Turner, a young man in love with a beautiful maiden, who swears to rescue her.
