Elijah Wood

Elijah Wood was enrolled into a modeling school as a child – his mother “thought he was cute”, and began acting at just 8 years old. Perhaps his most famous role, as Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, was earned when Wood designed his own costume and produced a video of him in character as Baggins, then sending it to director Peter Jackson.

He’s been nominated and awarded many acting accolades, including the Empire Award for Best Actor in 2002, an MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Duo, a Saturn Award for Best Actor in 2003, and many more others.
