Lord of the Rings stars Orlando Bloom and Liv Tyler have shared an adorable selfie with a puppy – and fans of the fantasy franchise are loving it.
Tyler caught a performance of Killer Joe, the West End theatre production Bloom is starring in, on 2 August.
She posed for a selfie with Orlando and a small dog after the performance with the Instagram caption, “My dear @orlandobloom you were brilliant in @killerjoeplay !!!!!!! Love you !!! Elven family. Arwen and Legolas forever !!!!”
Orlando posted an almost identical pic on his account with the caption, “just a pair of elves (male and female elf emojis) n a pup.”
Bloom and Tyler co-starred for the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, playing elves Legolas and Arwen respectively.
So far Orlando’s Instagram post has received over 250k likes and 2,500 comments. Many of the comments include Lord of the Rings references with one writing, “Please get married for all of Arda,” and another, “This warms my Middle Earth heart.”

Bloom is starring in West End’s production Killer Joe until 18 August and last week grabbed headlines for halting his performance to berate an audience member.
Killer Joe, written by acclaimed actor-playwright Tracy Letts, has received several high profile guests over the last few weeks, including multiple appearances by Bloom’s girlfriend Katy Perry.
Killer Joe was recently adapted into a film by William Friedkin, with Matthew McConaughey in the role played by Bloom.
