As we all know, Orlando Bloom will be back in The Hobbit to make his cameo as the son of the King of the Woodland elves (probably only a couple minutes of screen time)… It looks like he’s back in New Zealand for his role as the locals have spotted him shopping around town. Here’s an excerpt from an article at Stuff.co.nz:
Ms Carruthers, 19, said she and her friends were on Vivian St when they saw Bloom go into a photography store.
“We weren’t sure at first if it was him or not, so we waited around casually outside the stop, and then when he came out we saw it was definitely him.”
They approached the star, who plays elf archer Legolas in Sir Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films, and asked if he would pose for a photo or two.
“He was really, really nice, and asked us how we were going. He was dressed really casually, and his hair was a bit shaggy.”
