'The Hobbit': Orlando Bloom says goodbye to Legolas
As Hobbit reshoots wrap up, Peter Jackson’s cast seems to be checking items off a fan wish list before taking their wigs and makeup off for the last time. First, there was the in-costume response to a gushing fan trailer reaction. Then, there was a pic of Ian McKellen’s last day as Gandalf.
Now, Orlando Bloom is taking things to new meta heights by singing along to the 2006 fan-made music video “They’re Taking the Hobbits to Isengard” to celebrate his final day as Legolas.
“A day after saying goodbye to Gandalf and Tauriel, it was time to farewell Legolas,” Peter Jackson wrote on his YouTube page, where the video was uploaded. “What a great day it was, with Orlando battling a serious Orc for all 12 hours of shooting – part of the Battle of the 5 Armies for the third Hobbit movie. When we finally got the day done, we said goodbye to Orlando, had a couple of beers … and couldn’t resist doing this!”
