Bloom Receives Honorary Degree From Kent

Hollywood film star, Orlando Bloom, has been awarded an honorary degree from the University of Kent.

Bloom was amongst a number of famous faces who were being awarded their degrees at Canterbury Cathedral between 13 and 15 June. Other names include one of the country’s best known actors, David Suchet, Poet, Molly Mahood and Professor Sir Barry Cunliffe, Emeritus Professor of European Archaeology at the University of Oxford.

Many will know Orlando Bloom for his appearances in the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy – as well as appearances in Lord of the Rings, and The Good Doctor, where he both produces and stars.

A former student at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Bloom’s career has gone from strength to strength. He made his stage debut in a revival of David Storey’s drama, In Celebration, at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London’s West End. From stage to screen, Bloom has become one of Britain’s most famous exports. He is now one of Hollywood’s leading actors. On the 12 September 2009, he was named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

There will be more to see of the honorary degree recipient this year. Bloom is starring in two films that are out this year – Main Street and Sympathy for Delicious.
