Birth Name
Elijah Jordan Wood
Date of birth (location)
28 January 1981
Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA


Hailed as Hollywood's most gifted child actor of the 1990s, this handsome, dark-haired performer with large protuberant eyes began as a model and moved on to commercials and TV-movies before starting a successful career in features. Elijah Wood entered film with small parts in "Back to the Future II" (1989) and "Internal Affairs" (1990). His talent only began to manifest with a charming turn as the young grandson of immigrants (and alter ego of writer-director Barry Levinson) growing up in Baltimore in the autobiographical family saga "Avalon" (1990). Wood further demonstrated his dramatic chops with a starring role in "Radio Flyer" (1992), a harrowing fantasy-tinged tale of child abuse. He again occupied center stage in Disney's adaptation of the Mark Twain classic "The Adventures of Huck Finn" (1993). Wood also worked in TV, notably in "Witness" (1993), a "Showtime 30-Minute Movie", wherein he played a Jewish boy who haunts a Nazi soldier (Gary Sinise) who takes Jews to the gas chamber.

Wood more than held his own against the once burgeoning boy icon Macauley Culkin in the clever and chilling "The Good Son" (1993). Playing a troubled son who recently lost his mother to illness, Wood gave an impressively nuanced performance encompassing loss, anger, and growing anxiety about the sadistic machinations of his twisted yet outwardly angelic cousin. He shifted gears to outlandish comedy as the star of Rob Reiner's "North" (1994) playing an apparently perfect child who, feeling underappreciated by his distracted parents (Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss), becomes a free agent. Young North encountered an all-star supporting cast as he wandered the globe in search of more appropriate parents in this critically lambasted and commercially orphaned feature. The same year, Wood co-starred as Kevin Costner's son in the coming-of-age tale "The War". After a two year absence, he returned to the big screen in "Flipper" (1996), as a troubled youth, sent to live with his bohemian uncle, who encounters a boisterous dolphin. Wood followed with a fine portrayal of a troubled teen coming of age in the 70s in Ang Lee's superior "The Ice Storm" (1997).

Now of an age to play older teen roles, but possessing far more talent and experience than most of his contemporaries, Wood shied away from the high school-set romantic comedies and self-referential horror flicks that were inundating theaters in the late 1990s. When he did appear on the big screen in more exploitative projects, he managed to choose the best of the genres, taking featured roles in Mimi Leder's above-average Armageddon actioner "Deep Impact" and the Robert Rodriguez-directed, Kevin Williamson-scripted sharp and scary sci-fi thriller "The Faculty" (both 1998). A large part in the James Toback misfire "Black and White" (2000) didn't derail Wood, who instead emerged better for the effort, seeming more adult and more versatile after his work in the mostly-improvised, gritty drama. In 2001, he was featured in the Encore-aired independent "Life Without Dick" and followed with Edward Burns' "Ash Wednesday" (lensed 2001), playing the younger brother of the director-actor in this look at the Irish vs. Italian gang wars of the 1980s.

Cast in the long-awaited three-part feature adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings", Wood started a new chapter in his career. Having landed the sought-after part of Frodo Baggins, the actor was now a main player in a trilogy that was swarming with pre-release buzz. With "The Fellowship of the Ring" (2001), "The Two Towers" (2002) and "The Return of the King" (2003), Wood would become Frodo for three consecutive years in three blockbuster films. Thanks to his established versatility and remarkable talent, the actor was likely to meet a future career free from typecasting despite this primary role in the legendary fantasy franchise, while reaping the rewards of a starring role in a high-profile film.

In 2003, Wood will lend his voice for the computer-animated musical comedy Happy Feet with Robin Williams and Brittany Murphy.
