Actor Orlando Bloom is set to open up about living with dyslexia at a free lecture in New York.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star, 33, learned to overcome the learning disability at a young age and earned a scholarship at the British American Drama Academy in his native U.K., before going on to study acting at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
And he will share his experiences with the public when he sits down for a talk with Dr. Harold S. Koplewicz next week at the Child Study Center Foundation event at Rockefeller University.
The lecture, titled Dyslexia and Creativity: Two Sides of the Same Coin, aims to raise awareness about the condition among educators, mental health professionals and parents.
