Elijah Wood Net Worth $20 Million
Elijah Jordan Wood is The Lord of the Rings famed actor who was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on January 29, 1981. His success in movies has made him worth $20 million. He was interested in acting since his childhood days and always participated in plays through his school days. He began modelling as a child and got his first break in a music video and was then cast in a television movie titled Child in the Night.
He appeared as a child in movies for the first time in the science fiction movie Back to the Future Part II. That role was followed by his roles in Avalon and Tin Men. The success of Avalon paved the way for his future roles in movies like Internal Affairs, Forever Young, and Radio Flyer. His first lead role came in the 1993 movie The Adventures of Huck Finn which was followed by The Good Son, and The War. By then, he had become a critics’ favourite and was considered among the best child actors of his age. He was cast in several adventure films like Oliver Twist, Black and White, and Chain of Fools. However, most of his worth and fame are due to his role as Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings series of movies.
His recent movie appearances include Pawn Shop Chronicles, Maniac, Happy Feet Two, Bobby, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. He has been one of the most promising child actors of his time, but needs to continue the momentum if he has to become a superstar. He has won a number of awards for his role in The Lord of the Rings series of movies like the Saturn Awards but still has to make an impact on the critics with his post childhood acting if he hopes to become an even greater superstar.
