I’m old school English: Orlando Bloom

Los Angeles, Oct 13 (IANS) British actor Orlando Bloom, who will be seen in Paul W.S. Anderson’s “The Three Musketeers”, says he is old school English and is quite protective about things.

“I’m old-school English, so I suppose I’m quite protective, especially of time. Now that I’m a father, every moment is precious,” Bloom said in an email interaction.

The actor started his career with television but tasted success with his role as Legolas in “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”. In a decade long career, Bloom has been part of many good projects like “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Troy” and others.

Bloom is now excited about his new film “The Three Musketeers”, releasing Friday, where he plays the Duke of Bukingham.

“The movie ‘Three Musketeers’ is altogether a different experience for me. I am playing Duke of Buckingham who rules the land. I have never done a movie like this before. This movie has given me a sneak peek at the action-filled period piece with 3D effects which is the uniqueness of the movie. The great thing about the movie is that it is an epic story which speaks to every generation,” said the 34-year-old.

Bloom has got an image makeover in this movie, something he is really exited about.

“I have got a completely fascinating look which is quite appealing and different from my previous looks. The heavy gorgeous period costumes, pompadour hairstyle adds a lot to the character,” he said.

The film talks about Porthos, Athos and Aramis who served the king of France as his best musketeers. After discovering an evil conspiracy to overthrow the king, the musketeers come across a young, aspiring hero, D’Artagnan, and take him under their wing.

Together, the four embark on a mission to bust the plot that not only threatens the crown, but the future of Europe itself. Shot in 3D, “Three Musketeers” also have Milla Jovovich, Christoph Waltz among others.

Bloom is married to supermodel Miranda Kerr and the couple have a son Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom.

Asked if he ever received any relationship advice, he said: “Indeed I have received a few. The best one would be ‘Watch how you communicate with a woman’. Because you’re always communicating even when you are not talking - with your body language, your facial expressions, your eyes.”
