Starlog Archives: Orlando Bloom – Playing Pirate
Ten years ago, things were different. Audiences were very excited to see the sequel to the surprise hit, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Johnny Depp’s eccentricities were viewed as fresh and exciting. And Orlando Bloom was a star on the rise having recently completed the Lord of the Rings trilogy as the Pirates series was kicking off. A decade later, we don’t see much of Bloom. He reprised his role as Legolas in the Hobbit movies, dated Katy Perry and is set to make an appearance in the fifth not-so-anticipated Pirates movie.
In the December 2006 issue of Starlog Magazine, Bloom discussed the then-hot Pirates series.
