When mainstream audiences were first introduced to Orlando Bloom, no one knew who this stellar British actor was, or where he'd been hiding. However, after appearing as Legolas in the Lord of the Rings series and becoming a fan favorite, his career was off to the races. While his role in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise cemented him as one of the hottest male celebrities, his work outside of those franchises has been important, too. This list looks at what he's done since 2007 after starring in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (the third "Pirates" movie, but the last one he had a major role in; he made a cameo in the fifth film).
Orlando Bloom's career history is full of tangents into more insular films and television roles, as well as time spent working on humanitarian efforts. Even when he takes a break, he's not far from the stage or the world of fantasy. His work on Amazon's Carnival Row, premiering on August 30, shows the actor treading familiar territory, albeit with a mature streak.
After starring in some of the biggest films of the 2000s, Bloom has had a diverse career that's seen him continue to build momentum while doing things his own way.
