Orlando Bloom was delighted that Carnival Row was recognised in the Emmy nominations

Throughout his time working on Carnival Row last year, Orlando had to travel around Europe and endure freezing cold climates while working on scenes. The star was supported by fiancée Katy Perry throughout, who even came to visit him on set.

At the UK premiere of Carnival Row, Orlando's co-star Ariyon Bakara opened up to HELLO! about working with the star. On Katy visiting, he said: "Yes she did [go on set].

"I was excited. I wanted to sing. I just thought I would have an audtion – but I didn't!" he joked.

Ariyon was also quick to praise the rest of the cast and crew on set. "I really enjoyed working with costume, the makeup team and the hair team. Sometimes we don't recognise their work but on this job it's all over it which makes this job really easy."

Orlando has a busy few weeks ahead of him, as Katy is due to give birth to their daughter next month.

During a recent interview on Good Morning America, Orlando opened up about becoming a dad again. He said: "I’m really looking forward to those very late nights where I’ll probably be getting up and doing a bottle, breastfeed-bottle thing because I won’t be obviously breastfeeding, but I’m sure there will be bottles.

"I’m looking forward to that because I love those quiet times at night when the world feels like it’s asleep and you’ve got a sleeping baby."
