  1. Orlando Bloom

Orlando Jonathan Blanchard Bloom (born 13 January 1977) is an English actor. After having his breakthrough as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he rose to fame by further appearing in epic fantasy, historical epic, and fantasy adventure films. His other roles include Legolas in The Hobbit trilogy, Will Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Paris in Troy, and Balian de Ibelin in Kingdom of Heaven.

Orlando was born in Canterbury, Kent, England. His mother, Sonia Constance Josephine, was born in the British section of Kolkata, India. During his childhood, Bloom was told that his father was his mother’s husband, Jewish South African-born anti-Apartheid novelist Harry Saul Bloom; however, when he was thirteen (nine years after Harry’s death), Bloom’s mother revealed to him that his biological father was actually Colin Stone, his mother’s partner and family friend.
