‘The Hobbit’: Orlando Bloom Says Goodbye to Legolas With Viral Video

From hollywoodreporter.com: Orlando Bloom has officially left Middle-earth. The actor wrapped filming on The Hobbit: There and Back Again, the third installment of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy. And to mark the occasion, Jackson posted a video on his Facebook page of Bloom singing along to the 2007 viral hit “They are Taking The Hobbits To Isengard.”

The original video centers on his character Legolas, and has wracked up 2.1 million views to date.

“A day after saying goodbye to Gandalf and Tauriel, it was time to farewell Legolas. 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,” Jackson wrote. “When we finally got the day done, we said goodbye to Orlando, had a couple of beers … and couldn’t resist doing this!”

Bloom, 36, was 22 years old when The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring began filming in 1999.
