Elf-Alert - Orlando Bloom arrives in Wellington!

Earlier today, there was a report from his wife Miranda Kerr that he'd left for New Zealand last night, but I've just had it confirmed by one of my spies - Orlando Bloom has been sighted in Wellington.

Apparently the first place he visited was the Scorch-o-Rama cafe (formerly known as the Chocolate Fish Cafe) in Karaka Bay, on the Miramar Peninsula. Which just happens to be the same cafe Andy Serkis visited first when he returned as well.

If you've joined me on a fullday LOTR tour, that's where we generally have lunch. :)


So if you're reading this, Orlando - welcome back to Wellington! Couldn't have caught us on a nicer day!


To everyone else out there - keep the rumours coming! Photos would be great! :)

  1. Interesting, I had read a report that he wasn't due to be back in New Zealand for another month. (Then again, the place I read that was hardly a film source.)

    Do you know if the production is still on break til September 5th? (I believe that's what the production video said that Peter Jackson put out before going off to London.)

  2. I had heard the same report, I think. And yes, September 5 is what I remember as well, although I can't find that back now.

    However, the multiple spy reports I've now received were very clear on the matter - he's living in Wellywood again!

  3. i think in the 2nd video blog people heard the 2nd unit saying that they would be back by September 5. but that doesn't mean that other units won't be shooting.

    as a matter of fact Luke Evans said that he would start shooting from next week. now seeing that Fry,Evans and Bloom are all in NZ we can assume they will be shooting soon.

  5. @meghamala86 : Sounds reasonable to me!

    @Ruth : You'll be back before you know it... I'll take you to Scorching Bay when you get here... :)

  6. Is that a promise, Jack? I really,really need to come back.Scorching Bay,is that where the new Chocolate Fish is? I think we went last time I was over, didn't we.
    With all the madness that's going on here in England at the moment,NZ seems like paradise.

  8. I heard about someone else meeting him somewhere in Wellington, with Miranda Kerr and baby as well. He gave an autograph but requested "no photos please".

    And I love Wellington for the fact that there haven't been any yet.

    This ain't Hollywood - it's Wellywood. It's all a bit smaller here - except the quality of the movies. :)
