January 28, 1981, marked Elijah Jordan Wood's birth. He had a natural flair for performance as a boy, so his mother sent him to an annual International Modeling and Talent Association convention. In no time, he started getting bookings for minor television roles.

In 1989, he got his first role in "Back to the Future Part II," followed by "Avalon" in 1990. Soon after, he became an in-demand child actor, and by 1994, he starred in his first top-billing role in "North."

Over the years, Elijah has starred in various movies and TV shows such as "Flipper," "The Ice Storm, "The Faculty," and more. However, his role as Frodo Baggins in all three "The Lord of the Rings" films boosted his career.

In 2005, he launched a record label. Two years later, they became incorporated in California and released their first album, "New Magnetic Wonder," by the pop/rock band The Apples in Stereo.

The actor has successfully kept his personal life private, but his partner is known to be Mette-Marie Kongsved. The couple, reportedly together for a long time, welcomed their son Evan in 2019.
