"Bloom was born in Canterbury, Kent, England.
His mother, Sonia Constance Josephine Copeland, was born in Calcutta,
India, the daughter of Betty Constance Josephine Walker and Francis
John Copeland, a physician and surgeon; Bloom's maternal grandmother's family has lived in Tasmania, Australia and India,
and are of English descent, some of them having originally come from Kent. Bloom had thought that his father was South
African-born Jewish lawyer Harry
Saul Bloom, but during his teenage years, Bloom's mother revealed to
him that his biological father was actually Colin Stone, a family
friend. Bloom's parents and Stone agreed that Stone would father their
children, as Harry Bloom was physically incapacitated during the time.
Bloom, who is named after the 17th century composer Orlando
Gibbons, has one sister, Samantha Bloom, who was born in 1975."
