He then joined the National Youth Theatre, spending two seasons there and earning a scholarship to train at the British American Drama Academy.
With television roles in episodes of Casualty and Midsomer Murders, Bloom subsequently made his film debut in Wilde (1997), opposite Stephen Fry, before entering the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. There he studied acting and in 1998, he fell three stories when he tried to reach a roof. He was told he would not regain the ability to walk. However, he made a recovery and was able to walk out of the hospital on crutches within twelve days. Bloom had steel plates inserted into his backbone to support it, which have since been removed, except for a single screw. He regularly practices yoga and Pilates to strengthen his back.
