The Other Face of Orlando Bloom, You! (Spain), December 2002
scans and translation by Nuria
Until hardly a year ago, he was a total stranger.
Today Orlando Bloom is the
dream of many teens. The peculiar thing is that, until now, his person, on
the screen, has appeared hidden behind blue celestial contact lenses, long blond
hair, 2900 years of history and the name of Legolas. In real life,
Orlando has shown to us intense brown eyes that match the color of
his hair, eighty meters of height, an extraordinary sense of humor and that
sensual British accent that makes everything he says sound
'All that of fan clubs and adoration
produces nervousness in me. I'm only an actor who is starting out.'
Can you describe an Elf?
'He's an extraordinary being, with a great inner, noble
force, distinguished, with a great heart. Everything he does is by the
good of the others. If we all tried to emulate them in
something, the world would be very different.
'I believe that theater
production is indispensable for an actor, for that reason I wouldn't think to
give it up'.
