English born actor Orlando Jonathan Blanchard Bloom was born this very same day, only 37 years ago. I'll save you the math- he was born in 1977 and like a fine wine, he just gets better with age.

He has starred in many films since 1997, where he played one of the rent boy's in Wilde, (which also starred Stephen Fry as Oscar Wilde). It was in 2001 however, that he truly established himself with his role as the 'elf-prince Legolas in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy' and then as the blacksmith Will Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean films in 2003.

The One Ring have kindly given us an overview of the actors career, with a little help from Wikipedia:

Bloom subsequently established himself as a lead in Hollywood films, including Elizabethtown and Kingdom of Heaven. He appeared in the ensemble films Black Hawk Down; Troy; New York, I Love You; Sympathy for Delicious; and Main Street. On 12 October 2009, Bloom was named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. He reprised his role as Legolas in parts two and three of The Hobbit film trilogy, and was most recently seen on Broadway in the 2013 production of Romeo and Juliet.
