Orlando Bloom in polemic with BBC Radio 1

Posted in Johnny Depp by Anna Maria Polidori on April 27, 2017

The British actor and the diplomatic error

We all know that the father of Orlando Bloom Mr Bloom is a writer and professor and probably Orlando was trying just to be researched in his speaking: who knows?

Or maybe it was just a wrong day for Orlando Bloom when he decided to release an interview with BBC Radio 1 where he said during the interview that he was a pikey boy from Kent. The interview with Nick Grimshaw.

In the past pikey was used with the meaning of
“a lower-class person” perhaps coarse or disreputable.

In Kent where Orlando was born had also another meaning: the traveling groups who came to the county as “pickers” in the summertime of fruit and hops.

In recent times pikey means: people, of any ethnic group, who travel around with no fixed abode.

And an actor can be a “gypsy” in this sense because he travels a lot and for work’s exigencies he doesn’t stay in a place for a long time.

The diplomatic incident when Mr Grimwshaw asked to Bloom something about his own stunts: “I’m still a pikey from Kent, boy, I’m still a pikey from Kent. You don’t want to get on the wrong side of me, boy.”

BBC Radio 1 has apologized after Orlando Bloom’s strong expression used on air in case someone hurted by his expression.

The actor replied at BBC: I’ve come from Kent and I grew up with a lot of, like, freewheeling, cool, interesting characters like that. I certainly wasn’t taking a slant at that at all. I’m very respectful.”

Polemic or not, Pirates will be released this May 26 with the re-appearance of Keira Knightley as well reprising her role of Elizabeth Swann.

The movie will see the big return of Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, Geoffrey Rush as captain Barbossa, and new exciting entries like Javier Bardem in the role of Captain Salazar and Brenton Thwaites as Henry Turner.
