Elijah Jordan Wood (born January 28, 1981 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa) is an American actor of English, Austrian, German, and Danish descent. He is the middle of three children born to Warren and Debbie Wood, who nicknamed Elijah "Spark Plug" because he was a manically energetic child. He has a brother, Zack, a video game producer seven years his senior, as well as a younger sister by three years, Hannah, a poet and actor who has had small roles in a number of Wood's films.
Elijah Wood is the youngest member of The Lord of the Rings main cast. Interestingly, his character, Frodo, was chronologically the oldest of the four hobbits in the Fellowship. However, this irony could imply the One Ring's ability to arrest age as it did for Bilbo.
- Wood had voice-roles in both the 2006 animated film Happy Feet and its 2011 sequel Happy Feet Two, both of which also featured Hugo Weaving.
- He appeared in the 2008 film The Oxford Murders, which also featured John Hurt.
