Quotes

"Legolas' moves are smooth and elegant, like a cat...it's very balletic. It's also bloody hard to do without falling over!"
― Orlando Bloom, E! Online Force of the Hobbit
"(on being asked to audition for Legolas) "I thought: 'Definetly! Game on!' So I learned the scene and acted it on video tape, and, shortly after, got this incredible phone call saying they were offering me the role! It was like winning the lottery! Like having all your dreams fulfilled! It was amazing!"
― Orlando Bloom, The Lord of the Rings Official Movie Guide
