Orlando Bloom Also Finishes Filming The Hobbit

Following word yesterday that Sir Ian McKellen had finished his scenes for “The Hobbit” films, Peter Jackson announced today that Orlando Bloom is done filming his scenes as Legolas as well (he also says Evangeline Lilly is done with Tauriel). Jackson posted this:

“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. When we finally got the day done, we said goodbye to Orlando, had a couple of beers … and couldn’t resist doing this!”

Two more films are on the way starting this December with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and finishing in December of 2014 with The Hobbit: There and Back Again.
