Orlando Bloom’s Net Worth
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the estimated net worth of Orlando Bloom is around $40 million. His portrayal in “Lord of the Rings” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchises raised him to prominence.
After taking a dig into his net worth, let’s have a look at Orlando Bloom’s childhood development.
Orlando Bloom was born on the 13th of January, 1977, in Canterbury, Kent. He is the child of Sonia Constance Josephine and Colin Stone. His mother was born in India, and her family lived in Australia and Japan.
Until the age of 13, he used to believe that his biological father was his mother’s husband, Harry Saul Bloom, the anti-Apartheid South African novelist, who died when he was 4. However, after some time, his mother told him that his biological father was actually the family friend (and his mother’s partner) Colin Stone.
He went to St Edmund’s School in Canterbury, and then in 1993, he relocated to London to enroll in Fine Arts College, Hampstead, where he joined a two-year A-level course in Drama, Photography, and Sculpture. Later, Bloom went to the National Youth Theatre and received a scholarship to the British American Drama Academy.
Some of his initial professional acting roles include appearances in episodes of the shows “Casualty” and “Midsomer Murders”, and also in the 1997 film “Wilde”. Following these projects, he went to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, to take acting lessons. It is quite evident that Orlando Bloom worked hard from a young age to earn such a huge net worth.
Bloom was in an on-and-off relationship with American actress Kate Bosworth from 2003 to 2006. In 2007, he started dating Miranda Kerr, an Australian model and the couple tied the knot in 2010. The next year they welcomed a child together, a son. In October 2013, they separated and divorced later that year.
In early 2016, Bloom started dating Katy Perry, an American singer. The duo split the next year but then in April 2018, they got together again.
In February 2019, Bloom and Katy announced their engagement, and reportedly, he gave Katy an engagement ring worth nearly $5 million. In March 2020, Katy Perry revealed that the couple is expecting their first child together in the music video for her single titled “Never Worn White”.
In 1999, two days after he graduated from Guildhall, Orlando landed his first major role. Bloom landed the cast of the “The Lord of the Rings” film franchise as elf Legolas and later appeared in many movies including the 2001 film “The Fellowship of the Ring”, 2002’s “The Two Towers”, and 2003’s “The Return of the King”.
For three consecutive years, the whole cast of the “Rings” films was nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Best Ensemble Acting Award, and apparently, in 2003, they won in the category for the third “Ring” film. At the time, he also appeared in the 2001 film “Black Hawk Down”.
Bloom then starred in the 2003 successful film “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” where he portrayed the role of Will Turner, alongside Keira Knightley and Johnny Depp.
This ended up being another successful franchise, and he would continue to appear in the next two films under the franchise: 2006’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” films: “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” and 2007’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End”.
These projects have contributed majorly toward Orlando Bloom’s net worth. He then made a brief supporting appearance as Will Turner in the 2017 film “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”.
For his amazing portrayal in the blockbuster hits “Lord of the Rings” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchises, he actually became the most-searched man on Google News in 2006 and then appeared in four out of the top 15 highest-earning films of that time by May 2007.
He then returned to the cast of “Lord of the Rings” to reprise his role as Legolas in the films that include 2013’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” and 2014’s “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”. The “Hobbit” films are prequels to the “Lord of the Rings” films.
His other notable films include the 2004 historical war drama “Troy”, alongside Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, and Peter O’Toole; 2005’s Kingdom of Heaven, directed by Ridley Scott and “Elizabethtown” alongside Kirsten Dunst; 2009’s “New York, I Love You”; the 2011 film “The Three Musketeers”, 2013’s “Zulu”; 2017’s “Unlocked” and “Romans”.
He originally wanted to be a professional stage actor following his graduation. Apart from his well-known films, he has also kept himself involved in theater. Bloom landed the cast of a London revival of the play “In Celebration”, written by David Storey.
Later, in 2013, he made his Broadway debut in “Romeo and Juliet” portraying Romeo at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, and then starred in the 2018 Trafalgar Studios production of the play “Killer Joe”. Orlando Bloom’s theatre works also contributed to his net worth.
