ORLANDO BLOOM (Will Turner) attained worldwide fame with his portrayal of Legolas in Peter Jackson's award-winning "The Lord of the Rings” trilogy of celebrated J.R.R. Tolkien adaptations: "The Fellowship of the Ring,” "The Two Towers,” and "The Return of the King.” 

He graduated from London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama. During his years at Guildhall, he performed in stagings of "Little Me,” "A Month in the Country,” "Peer Gynt,” "Mephisto,” "Twelfth Night,” "The Seagull,” "Three Sisters,” "The Recruiting Officer,” "Antigone,” "Uncle Vanya,” "A Night Out,” and "Mystery Plays.” 

Bloom was born in Canterbury, Kent. At the age of 16, he moved to London and joined the National Youth Theatre for two seasons. He subsequently earned a scholarship to train with the British American Drama Academy. Upon completion of his scholarship, Bloom played the lead in the play "A Walk in the Vienna Woods.” Bloom's feature film debut was in Brian Gilbert's "Wilde.” He was then accepted to Guildhall and chose to put his screen career on hold for the opportunity to further his education. 

Following his work on "The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, he has starred in Ridley Scott's "Black Hawk Down,” the Working Title production of "The Calcium Kid,” directed by Alex de Rakoff, Gregor Jordan's "Ned Kelly” and the upcoming epic "Troy,” directed by Wolfgang Petersen.
