Tapes released since this actor in the period 1999-2000 year passed largely unnoticed, and certainly paled in comparison with the last Elijah role – the role of Frodo in a highly anticipated eranizatsii “Lord of the Rings.”
Elijah Jordan Wood was born on 28 January 1981 in the town of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA. His talents were first disclosed, when he went to school, and the first of them were seen in the ability of music. When he was 7 years old, he has already participated in performances by local choir, and a year later, Elijah has already participated in the theatrical production of “The Wizard of Oz” at the festival “Hooray Hollywood.”
One day, while watching TV commercials, parents Wood visited the idea that their son might as well have to appear in commercials, like the rest of his peers. So, in 1988, his mother gave her son Elijah in their local modeling agency Avant Studios, and six months later the boy was sent to a conference of the International Association of Models and young talent, extending in Los Angeles. It was the first time that Elijah left his home state of Iowa.
One of the judges who participated in the selection of young talent Gary Skalzo recognized as something that was initially very reluctant to agree to participate in this meropiyatii: “There were more than 200 children from around the world, as well as another 300 people under the age of 30 years, also decided to try his luck. Many of my colleagues have asked me then if I had seen Elijah and I was interested in. As a result, I have all day long with my mouth open watching him and he could not hide his admiration for his seething energy and talent. The only thing I feared, it’s whether we can then send all this energy in the right direction ”
Other members of the jury remember that when Elijah first appeared on the scene in the hall of silence: “He had complete control over the audience from the moment of its first appearance. His natural charm, his smile and charisma quickly conquered the hearts of the audience.”
When Gehry Skalzo first saw Elijah at the festival, he was only 8 years old. His talent was obvious and within a few days after the close of the event Wood with her mother were invited to the agency for the development of the boy’s acting career.
Elijah himself recalls that he had in mind was not becoming an actor when he was first sent to a festival of talent – he then was interesting modeling career. However, when Skalzo read to him a couple of several monologues, and then asked him if he wanted to be an actor, boy, without hesitation, replied: “Of course. I’ll be an actor.”
A month later the family moved to Wood in Los Angeles, where he began acting career Elijah, who first three years in Hollywood he worked under the guidance of Gary Skalzo.
After 6 weeks of auditions and castings Elijah got his first job – a role in the clip Paula Abdul “Forever Your Girl”. This was followed by small roles in such films as “Back to the Future 2” / Back to the Future Part II, 1989 / and “internal investigation” / Internal Affairs /. However, critics first noticed the young talent only after the release of the tape Barry Levinson’s “Avalon” in 1990, nominated for “Oscar” in several categories.
His first major role Elijah performed in the film “Paradise” / Paradise /, where he played a boy who is trying to bring together the characters of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. And in 1992, he starred with Mel Gibson in the film “Forever Young” / Forever Young /.
In 1993, Wood made a couple of other young talent – Macaulay Culkin in “The Good Son” / The Good Son /, which failed at the box office and received bad reviews viewers who could not accept the blond boy from “Home Alone” as a juvenile psychopath.
In the same year, Elijah played the role of Huckleberry Finn in the film, as well as starred in the film “War” / The War / c Kevin Costner. In 1994, the actor starred in “Norte” – the film received a lot of negative reviews, almost all of which, however, contained laudatory words about the young talent. The picture did not save even the presence in it of such stars as Bruce Willis, although the appearance of Bruce in a suit of a large white rabbit with carrot in his mouth, I personally have caused at least a smile. Released in 1996, “Flipper” was not much better, but the situation, fortunately, was able to change received praise from critics, “The Ice Storm” / The Ice Storm / Ang Lee, there was a positive shift in the career of Wood.
The following tape featuring Elijah, published in 1998 – “Deep Impact” and “Faculty” Rodriguez, though not great works, from the point of view of critics, but enjoyed steady love of the public and gathered a good cashier in worldwide box office. It was after that Elijah began to learn the same ordinary viewers, including those outside the United States.
Tapes, published in the period 1999-2000 year passed largely unnoticed, and certainly paled in comparison with the last Elijah role – the role of Frodo in a highly anticipated eranizatsii “Lord of the Rings.” And as if this was not accepted by fans of Tolkien motion picture and just ordinary spectator, almost all who watched the film, unanimously agree on one thing – the young talent, taken on a leading role, coped with it by 100% and now can hardly afford even imagine anyone else in the image of Frodo.
