Orlando Bloom is a British actor best known for his role of Legolas in The Lord of the Rings films, and Will Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Other films include Black Hawk Down, Troy, Kingdom of Heaven, Elizabethtown, Sympathy for Delicious, the Three Musketeers, and The Hobbit.

In July 2010, Orlando married Miranda Kerr, an Australian model and actor. This caused some gnashing of teeth among the remaining Tinhat fans, who continue to believe that he is hiding his gay love for Viggo Mortensen.

Their son, Flynn, was born in early January 2011, and Orlando is often photographed carrying him around[1]


Orlando is a popular Lotrips character, paired most often with Elijah Wood (Orlijah) or Viggo (VigOrli, viggorli).

In many slash fanfics, he is the passive, sweet, girlie, submissive and/or woobie partner. If there is Mpreg, he is the one who gets pregnant, 99% of the time.

He also appears in a small amount of The Hobbit RPF, though he isn't often shipped there.[2]
