Quotes from Orlando Bloom about Legolas

Legolas' moves are smooth and elegant, like a cat...it's very balletic. It's also bloody hard to do without falling over!" - E!Online Force of the Hobbit

(on being asked to audition for Legolas) "I thought: 'Definetly! Game on!' So I learned the scene and acted it on video tape, and, shortly after, got this incredible phone call saying they were offering me the role! It was like winning the lottery! Like having all your dreams fulfilled! It was amazing!" - LotR Official Movie Guide
