Bloom Blabs, BBC Films Online (UK), October 24, 2003
Vindaloo-hot British star Orlando Bloom has been blabbing about playing
war-sparking Trojan prince Paris, in Wolfgang Petersen's Troy. "It was awesome,"
he told BBCi Films. "Peter O'Toole played my dad and Eric Bana played by
brother. Brad Pitt, of course, was Achilles. I worked with some amazing people:
Julie Christie, Brendan Gleeson, Brian Cox. They're amazing and Wolfgang did an
incredible job. It felt like working on an old movie like Ben Hur or something.
It was awesome!"
As for the proposed sequel to Pirates Of
The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl, he has little choice but to
appear in it, as it was a condition of his starring in part one. "Fortunately,"
he said, "Having seen the results of that movie - I don't mean just how it's
done but just the enjoyment I got out of making it and working with the cast,
the director, everyone involved - I'd go back anytime."
