Hollywood star Orlando Bloom paid a sincere tribute to his 98-year-old grandma Dorrie. Taking to his Instagram, ‘The Lord of the Rings’ star shared a progression of photographs of him visiting his grandma and stooping adjacent to her bed. The photos demonstrated him planting a kiss on her hand and holding her tenderly. “Cherish the memories and moments and celebrate and respect the life,” he wrote. “We all smile we live we laugh and we embrace a grandmother a mother a sister an aunt a wife a girlfriend a daughter a friend a child a newborn. We are born we grow old we get sick and we die. This we know. So love and give love.”
The star at that point brought a trek through a world of fond memories, sharing upbeat recollections he had imparted to his grandma. “98 years and I’m so glad I got to be a part of them,” he continued. “And as I lie awake pondering and knowing that she too will pass soon now perhaps before I wake I pray I smile I shed a tear or two at the memories of Sunday lunch with Yorkshire pudding (she made it the best) and roast potatoes and beans from the allotment and pudding and humbugs and walks in the fields or along the canals and knitted cardigans the love and history[.] I am so grateful for my grandma Dorrie. I love you.” On the work front, Bloom will next be found in John Ridley’s time-travel show, ‘Needle in a Timestack’ with Frieda Pinto and Leslie Odom Jr.
