Orlando Bloom Talks About His Dyslexia During Lecture Series

Orlando Bloom crosses his fingers while talking about his own experiences with dyslexia at the 2010 Adam Jeffrey Katz Memorial Lecture Series held at NYC’s Rockefeller University on Wednesday (June 2).

During the “Dyslexia and Creativity: Two Sides of the Same Coin” lecture, the 33-year-old British actor was joined on stage by Child Mind Institute‘s Dr. Harold Koplewicz.

Orly learned to overcome the learning disability at a young age but it’s still an ongoing struggle. He earned a scholarship at the British American Drama Academy in his native England, before going on to study acting at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

FYI: Orly‘s girlfriend, model Miranda Kerr, was there to lend her support!
