Orlando Bloom And Cara Delevingne Star In First Look At Victorian Fantasy Series ‘Carnival Row’

Orlando Bloom is making a big return to the sci-fi/fantasy genre that made him a star.

Since becoming an international sensation for his role as Legalos in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, the actor — who recently got engaged to singer Katy Perry — has rarely returned to the genre outside of reprising his role in “The Hobbit” films. But thanks to his first starring TV role in Amazon’s “Carnival Row”, Bloom plays detective Rycroft Philostrate in a world filled with mythological creatures. In this Victorian fantasy series, the detective rekindles a dangerous affair with a faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Cara Delevingne) as creatures are forced to immigrate with human society after their homelands were invaded by man.

In the first teaser released on Monday, Bloom and Delevingne hint at a “rift in the city.” “Time is running out; something inhuman approaches,” Bloom’s Philostrate says as Stonemoss responds by saying that both sides “must come together.” While it’s an all-too brief teaser, it hints at the stylish and moody series to come.
