Orlando Bloom thanks the NHS as he remembers the horrible time he broke his back


Orlando Bloom sprang to the NHS for saving his life.

Supporting the health service, the actor implored the British public to stay at home.

The 43-year-old Canterbury star thanked the National Health Service for saving his life when he fell out of the window in a horrific incident more than 21 years ago.

He said he broke his back in the fall when he was 20 before he became famous.

Orlando attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 1998 when he fell three stories from a window and broke his back.

NHS doctors and nurses fought to save his life and despite fears that he would be permanently paralyzed, he quickly recovered and returned to the scene.

In a gushing Instagram post, Orlando pleaded with the British to stay home and follow coronavirus lockout procedures to help the NHS.

He wrote, “The NHS saved my life at the age of 20, after falling from a 3rd floor window and breaking my back.

“Having lived in the United States for almost 20 years, this is one of the home utility services that I most respect. “

He admitted with a photo of the blue NHS logo and the words “Don’t send our NHS back”, which turns into “Stay home now” when returned.

Upon his return to the stage, Orlando performed without knowing it in front of the director and producer Peter Jackson who was sitting in the audience one night in 1999.

Peter gave Bloom his huge break as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, which saw him filming in New Zealand for 18 months just after graduating.
