Elijah Wood has grown up in the film industry. With 24 years in the business, he’s one of child stars who has kept a level head. The season finale for the 2nd season of his show Wilfred airs next Thursday, September 5th on FX, and he was kind enough to chat with us this morning!
Julie related to Elijah that she is watch the Lord Of The Rings movies with her daughters. With filming wrapped on The Hobbit trilogy, Elijah says that he is excited for the actors having the same experience he had for the first time.
Elijah started working in films at a young age. The industry is a funny place, he says, and not for the feint of heart. He credits his mother for giving him a solid foundation that has kept him grounded where other child actors have gone wheels off. He says that for every young actor that takes a bad turn, there are other child actors staying on the straight and narrow with good choices.
