I wondered absently if actor Orlando Bloom were named for the character.
Looking it up today, he was actually named for English (Tudor/Jacobean period) composer/organist Orlando Gibbons.
According to Wikipedia,
Gibbons was the “favorite composer” of the Canadian pianist Glenn Gould. “Ever since my teen-age years his music has moved me more deeply than any other sound experience I can think of.”
Dubbed “the American Olivier” by New York Times theater critic Frank Rich for his stage acting…
Branagh himself was, of course, both praised and panned by the English theatre critics. Like this one for his portrayal of Hamlet in the late 80s,
Critic Milton Shulman for the Evening Standard wrote: “On the positive side Branagh has the vitality of Olivier, the passion of Gielgud, the assurance of Guinness, to mention but three famous actors who have essayed the role. On the negative side, he has not got the magnetism of Olivier, nor the mellifluous voice quality of Gielgud nor the intelligence of Guinness.”
Kelsey Grammer (of Dr. Frasier Crane fame) played in “As You Like It” at the Globe Theatre in San Diego. Grammer was in the 1996 movie “Down Periscope” featuring, amongst others, a submarine called the USS Orlando.
