‘I still got it,’ Orlando Bloom quipped in a caption as he showed off his formidable archery skills, which he learned in the early ’00s to play’ LOTR’s Legolas.
Orlando Bloom , 44, just got us back to the Lord of the Rings days. The UK-born actor wowed fans on Saturday July 24th with an Instagram video showing off his formidable archery skills and looked like an absolute pro. “Still,” he joked confidently as he shot multiple arrows at a bullseye in a fitted white t-shirt. The actor looked toned and alert in the post, just like he did 20 years ago when he played Legolas Greenleaf in the iconic film trilogy.
Orlando played the Sindarin-Elf, who was part of the Fellowship of the Ring in the third age, in the film series based on J The book series by RR Tolkien . Orlando did all of his own impressive stunts in LOTR and originally received combat training at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He later learned archery in New Zealand, where the film was shot over 18 months, and is credited with sparking a newfound interest in this ancient sport.

“This is my winning lap, and then we’ll do another lap,” he said confidently in the video. that was shot behind him. It’s unclear who was holding the camera in the sunny back yard, but it could very well have been beautiful fiance Katy Perry , 36. The actor appeared as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings: The Companions from 2001, The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers from 2002 and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King . He later repeated the role – including archery – for The Hobbit: The Robbed Kingdom from 2013.
“Yes, we brushed up [my archery skills]. It was great, it was a great way to get back to character and fire a bow and arrow, “he said to Yahoo! Singapore during the advertisement for the flick in December 2013. âThe ache and ache I had when I was 22-10 years old isn’t too bad, but it’s very different from the sharp movements of the Elves. It was definitely a bit of work coming back, âhe added at the time.
