Orlando Bloom On Near-Death Experience At 20 & How Katy Perry Reacted To New Thrill-Seeking Series

Orlando Bloom is getting out of his comfort zone. The 47-year-old actor spoke with Access Hollywood about his new Peacock docuseries “Orlando Bloom: To The Edge” which documents him taking on challenging, extreme sports like wing suiting and free diving. The thrill-seeker told Access how he prepared for the adventures physically, mentally, and emotionally, explained what he learned on his journey of self-discovery, and revealed what fiancée Katy Perry thought about him taking on this project where he quite literally lived life on the edge. “We’re super supportive of one another. I’m always just amazed at how much she can take on. She does so much,” the actor said, adding, “I think perhaps she hadn’t necessary fully realized what kind of circumstances I was putting myself in.” Orlando also opened up about his near-death experience at 20, calling it a “life-changing moment.” “Orlando Bloom: To The Edge” premieres on April 18 on Peacock.
