Film hunk Orlando Bloom has joined a galaxy of stars urging young people to vote in the British general election on Thursday (05MAY05).

The Lord Of The Rings heart-throb has urged teenagers to take an interest in politics and shake off their youthful apathy, because their votes can make a difference to the UK's future political landscape.

Bloom has joined Madonna, COLDPLAY singer Chris Martin, music mogul SIMON COWELL and pop stars Geri Halliwell, Robbie Williams and Beverley Knight in championing British newspaper The Sun's ROCK THE VOTE campaign.

He says, "Go out and make a difference.

"It's so important to vote. We are so lucky to have a voice - so everyone should use it."
