* AwesomeDearBoy: Why he does most of his roles.



* PlayingAgainstType: After becoming known for playing mostly pristine heroes with swords (although this is not the limit of his catalog of roles), he plays a skeevy wannabe rock star and a devious, petulant English nobleman in the upcoming ''Sympathy for Delicious'' and ''The Three Musketeers,'' respectively.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: He reportedly turned down the lead role in the ''Film/PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime'' film. The role eventually went to Jake Gyllenhall.

* OlderThanHeLooks: He reprised his role as Legolas 10 years after ''Lord of the Rings'' ended and you barely see a difference.

Orlando Bloom is an English actor born in Canterbury (Kent) on January 13, 1977. He rose to prominence in the role of Legolas in Peter Jackson's ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' trilogy and later with [[{{Disney}} Disney's]] ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' trilogy; between that and ''Kingdom of Heaven'' and ''Three Musketeers'', he can fairly be called "King of Costume Dramas". While Bloom is most closely associated with his status as a heartthrob and as "the guy with the sword" in summer blockbusters, he has a diverse resume of roles in both mainstream and independent productions.

* {{Badass}}: After falling three stories from the roof of a London apartment building and breaking his back, he not only defied doctors' fears that he would be paralyzed, but he recovered in record time and went on to appear in highly physical film roles. Though it becomes a FunnyAneurysmMoment if you watched him in ''BlackHawkDown.''

* PrettyBoy: Which was actually a huge factor in his first major role as [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Legolas]]. They needed someone beautiful to play an elf. It reaches a new level with his involvement in ''[[Film/TheHobbit The Hobbit]]'', Bloom still looks the part.
