IMDbIMDb Profile

English actor Orlando Jonathan Blanchard Bloom (b. January 13, 1977) portrayed Legolas in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film series.


Legolas' moves are smooth and elegant, like a cat... it's very balletic. It's also bloody hard to do without falling over!

(on being asked to audition for Legolas) "I thought: 'Definitely! 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!
