Orlando Bloom has revealed that she was being paid £140,000 for Lord of the Rings trilogy. He is so fascinated by the series that he says that if he got the chance, he would do it again for half the price. Between 2001 and 2003, Orlando Bloom, 42-year-old, earned fame after starring as elf warrior Legolas in Peter Jackson’s fantasy trilogy, based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels. The Fellowship Of The Ring, The Two Towers and The Return Of The King were a hit and earned £2.3 million at the box office.
Orlando Bloom, who going to star with Cara Delevingne in the upcoming Amazon’s carnival row has accepted that it did not matter to him because he got the prestigious chance of being a part of this franchise. He casually told about this to Howard Stern on his SiriusXM Howard 100 show that he just got $175 grand. He says that he believes that they experienced a little bump when the movies came out but they enjoyed the bump.
The cash started falling in like a waterfall just as he got the part as Will Turner in Pirates Of The Caribbean. The actor says that now he is too old to start again as Legolas in The Lord Of The Rings which is going to be an Amazon TV series. He says that although he wants to feel ageless all the time he believes there would be someone younger than him, probably a 19-year-old kid who would perfectly fit in the world that Hollywood has to offer right now.
He had a talk with the franchise’s creator, Jackson regarding the remake of films and ended up joking about it because that is not happening anytime soon.
