The Elijah Effect - Before he became the most famous hobbit in history,
Elijah Wood, 21, already had a brilliant career. In 1989, at age 8, he made
his movie debut in Back to the future part 2. Talented, blue-eyed and
impossibly cute, he has worked steadily ever since, having appeared in
nearly two dozenfilms. While making the 1998 teen horror movie The Faculty
in Austin, Texas, Wood met internet movie critic Harry Knowles, who told
him that Peter Jackson was planning to make "Lord of the Rings". "Harry was,
like,'Dude, you have to be Frodo.'"says Wood. Jackson agreed; Wood was
Frodo. "He has an ability, more than anybody that I've ever met, to convey
excatly what he's feeling through his eyes," says the director. Wood will
returned to New Zealand for the last bit of shooting on Rings next summer.
The third film, he says, "is the most tragic.People would have no idea what
they have coming."

down from there. You'll see a ring and just click on that and there it is!
:: Some info from Veronica about Frodo's costume from the LOTR official Fan club
"Frodo's costume is probably the most princely of them all. He's got a bit
of velvet, which doesn't really appear in hobbits very much. His colors-that
very warm golden brown and that maroon red- were used to set him slightly
apart from the other."
:: Danielle sent me
a few Elijah fans are asking people to send along their letters etc to them

The Irish Independent this weekend has a great long interview with Elijah.
It’s mostly about stuff us fans already know but there are a few words of
wisdom from our cutie Elijah. Plus there’s a picture that would earn its way
into an "Elijah collage" something I have a lot of.
:: Susie sends this really cool info!
just wanted to tell you that I managed to see the Two Towers before anyone
else and it is really is amazing, it is so much better than the Fellowship
and they've adapted the script so that it's really different from the book
coz it just makes it better! I'm also going to the London premiere on the
11th December and I have a special VIP pass to meet all the cast and I'm so
excited! It's an awesome film!
:: And finally.. Miki sends this little quote from Elijah (about his New Year
resolution) from YM magazine...
"To stop biting my fingrenails. I bite them to the point of where you cant
bite anymore. If you look in The Lord of the Rings, you'll notice my fingers
are bitten down, so apparently Frodo bites his nails too."
December 1, 2002
:: Hehe, i just remembered something while watching the
today. Remember how ages ago you could join the Lord of the Rings official
fan club online and pay a certain amount of money and get your name in the
credits? Well i remember Elijah saying in an interview how he joined the
club because he wanted to make sure that his name would be *somewhere* in
the credits (hehe, silly guy). Thought he was joking, but sure enough,
whose name is in amongst the other fans? Elijah Wood. Hehe,
pointless info but i thought it was pretty funny.
:: A cool scan sent to me by at least 10 people
today of that famous see-through shirt pic - different angle though. As it
says down the bottom it's from Simply Irresistable Elijah Wood, can't
say i've heard of that site, so i can't give you a link to it.

She has heaps of
rare video clips

The chat is an AOL-only feature. On the 11th all you need to do is go to
AOL keyword Live at 6pm to access the chat. I even check AOL Instant
Messenger to see if that would work but it doesn't. But for anyone out
there who does have access to AOL...what a treat! Thanks to A Humble

:: Other gossip from Hobbit Angel.. the first one is more about Mandy Moore
but it does involve Elijah..
SYRUPY-SWEET pop tart Mandy Moore has a new man. Moore, who is best
friends with Kelly Osbourne, is dating hunky Harvard tennis stud Andy
Roddick . Mandy and Andy showed up to Monday night's Big Brothers, Big
Sisters gala in L.A., breaking many hearts, especially those of girls
who are randy for Andy. For the record, a pal of Moore's notes, "Mandy
and Andy are together. She never dated Elijah Wood." OK!
Flaming Lips have asked 'LORD OF THE RINGS' star ELIJAH WOOD to appear
in their forthcoming movie about the first Christmas on Mars. As
previously reported on NME.COM, vocalist Wayne Coyne is developing his
first film, while taking time out from promoting the band?s new album
'Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots'. Wood told The Face magazine that he is
also planning on taking a part. He said: "I went to see them in LA and
they asked if I'd like to be in the movie and I said 'YES!'. They were
meant to be filming in November but they had to go on tour." In the film,
Coyne wants to play a Martian, who people think is "this crazy guy who's
CAULDRON OF SIM: A long line of limos clogged Sunset Plaza Drive on
Thursday night heading to the Sims House in the Hollywood Hills for the
big bash to celebrate the popular computer game's online launch. The
ultramod split-level pad was decorated with lava lamps, disco balls,
clear plexi chairs, huge plasma video screens, dozens of computer
stations, plastic flamingos and a bronco ride out front. (Just like in
the game!) Sims-loving stars Elijah Wood, Daryl Hannah, Luke Wilson,
Andy Dick, Heidi Fleiss and Lara Flynn Boyle indulged in grain-based
beverages, beer, wine, French fries, pizza and mini-burgers..
Thanks Hobbit Angel!

:: Awwww.... his beautiful hair. I quite liked the just-out-of-bed look
he used to have. First time i saw the new look i was shocked (didn't
think he'd actually do it), but now i think it looks quite good (not
as good of course). But, he knew that it would cause a stir
amongst his fans but he did it anyway, good on him! Anyway, here are
some screen caps of his new haircut that i took:
Like it? Don't like it?
Discuss it on the board
But DO NOT write to me anymore about it, ok? If you have new pics
then yes, but don't go on about how much you hate it.
:: Some info about the Charlie Rose show sent to me by Barbara
Elijah, Viggo, and Peter Jackson were on Charlie Rose last night.
It is a show on PBS that comes on at 12 am eastern time. Elijah has
shaved his head, but it kind of suits him. Viggo made a political
statement with his shirt "No More Blood for Oil". During the show
they mostly discussed the movie and politics. Viggo did not like the
LOTR's movie being compared to the United States current situation.
Elijah didn't do much talking from what I watch, matter of factly,
Viggo and the host did the most. They showed several shots for the
new movie, Elijah did say it was very emotional and he crys everytime
he sees certain scenes. The Two Towers is going to be awesome,
prepare yourselves for one hell of a ride. Oh, and make sure you
potty before the movie starts cause you are not going to get out of
Awww.... how cute, he cries when he sees it too! :) Thank you so much

Channel Seven has the NBC Today show on at approxiametly 1 am. So for

am on the 13th of December, Melbourne time.

calendar which is available in the TV Spielfilm magazine. On the
stickers, there's a number, and you can use it to play sticker bingo
at their site. They say there are "interactive surprises hidden
behind the stone plates". There's also a listing of the motifs on
their site, and a competition where you can win a "digital home
entertainment system" (which includes a DVD player, AM/FM tuner etc.)
and five LotR DVD fan packs. - In case someone would like to order
the stickers and poster calendar, here's an order form in

:: Apparantly Thumbsucker won't happen after all.
I live in Portland and talked to a woman at the Oregon Film and Video office. She said that they scouted for the movie here, but the director decided that he didn't want to make the movie. It may be made in later days if the director changes his mind, but for the time being, it's not gunna happen. Yeah, it's dissapointing...

:: Wow, Kate got the opportunity to see Elijah in person at the Today Show - here's a short recount:
This morning, around six-thirty, I decided I would just go see him at the Today Show, since it may give me more of a chance to see him. So, I got ready, and walked incredibly quickly to Rockefeller Center, and I got there JUST as he was getting out of his car. And, he was just super nice. He signed stuff for me and the other fangirls, and took pictures, and was adorable. And I told him I'd been watching his movies since I was like, eight...I don't remember what he said to that, though. Then we waited for him to come out later, and they had to run to get to Regis and Kelly. But, once he was in the car, we were standing there, and I saw him in the car, and he made eye contact with me! And so I waved, and he waved back! It was lovely. Some girly things I noticed, he has perfect skin. PERFECT. And lovely blue eyes. Also, he's incredibly sincere and nice, and totally willing to talk to fans. He even said hello to some girls friend over the telephone! So, that's my story!
Lucky lucky thing Kate! :P Thanks for sharing your experience with us!

:: Ryoko Wood sends us the link to TVGuide where if you go to search (up the top right) americans can find out when all the new Elijah interviews will be on :) Thanks!
:: A really nice e-mail from Athelas:
I thought i would write and let you know, that after all my hard work, entering competitions, writing begging letters etc, I finally got to go to the premiere of Two towers in London on 11th. Elijah wasnt there, which totally gutted me as i was told he would definitely be there, but the film was totally awesome, inspiring, and a lot of words that i think havent been invented yet. Be prepared to become part of it all, because right from the start you are pulled in and you cant stop for breath. Funny, sad, disturbing and brilliant. Enjoy!!! also my friend Keerie and I were very lucky to land after prem. party passes. and got to meet everyone(except Elijah and Orlando, who were the two people we wanted to meet more than anything)!!! but everyone was so wonderful, and so sweet to us both. Karl Urban, John Rhys Davies, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd,Dom Monaghan,Cate Blanchett, Peter Jackson and Andy Serkis. oh and by the way, Billy is going to NZ. WOOHOO :) he said so. he wants to catch up with a few of his old friends while he is there. Dreams do come true, if you want them badly enough. which is why i am gonna go next year too. even if it costs me another thousand pounds!!! i saved all last year, and i will do it again!!! thanks! love Athelas.XX
I'm glad you had such a good time! :) So Billy is going to the NZ prem, Elly confirmed this too. Thanks girls!
:: Thanks to everyone who has been sending in their recounts of when they met Elijah. If you know anyone who did and has pics, or whatever, please tell them to e-mail me, i love reading recounts and stuff, gives me hope :)
:: BTW, Aussies, that WB special is going to be on tonight, channel 9 i think it is? I dunno, check your TV Guides!

:: Another pic of Elijah shopping with the other hobbits
:: Candy very kindly typed up a transcript of Elijah's interview on the Today Show and Regis and Kelly
:: Cute picture of Elijah and PJ
:: OHHHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOO............ ahhhhhhhhh........ looks like Elijah won't be at the Sydney Premiere!! *sobs* look what he said to a New Zealand site: Wood is due to arrive in Wellington on Wednesday and says he will be leaving on Friday. But the premiere is on Thursday :( Geez, it's just a couple of hours away from Sydney... couldn't he just fly over for the prem?? *looks hopeful*
:: Caitlin sent me this today:
i found this at the fox studios website and thought u might like to know:
The Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers premieres at Fox this Thursday. See the stars & filmmakers as they walk the red carpet, including Dominic Monaghan, Miranda Otto, David Wenham, Hugo Weaving, Barrie Osborne (producer) and Andrew Lesnie (director of photography) at the Australian Premiere.
:: AND... i just rang up Fox Studios and asked them which actors will be attending and he said that NONE OF THE CAST WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE. What the hell is that? How can they have a premiere with none of the cast there? pffft. Stupid Sydney
:: Cute quote from Billy Boyd
But I have to ask: is Elijah Wood a precious Hollywood brat or what?
His co-star does a "that pains me" face, before launching into an endearingly boyish defence.
"Oh no, not Elijah," he says incredulously. "I mean, he and the rest of the Ring lads came to stay with me when I was in Mexico. At one point there were 50 of us staying in my house. So Elijah had to sleep on the floor. He didn’t bother that someone else had got a bed before him. He’s a very, very cool guy. The whole movie thing just doesn’t affect him," Boyd insists.
How cute :)
:: Ok, now i'm depressed, not going to update anymore, i'm hungry. Bye!
December 18, 2002
:: Sorry about yesterday's update, there were so many bad links, i think i
must have been half asleep. But i did clean out my mailbox :)
:: ELIJAH HAS SHOWN HIS TATTOO!! *gasp* yep, believe it girls, he broke the
pact, and since he showed it freely, i am free to post pics of it, right
;) He showed it last night on Leno :) A couple of people wrote to me
about the show, so read it b4 you see the pics!
The Tonight Show was FANTASTIC!! Jay Leno asked Elijah if he did any
fun stuff in Paris, and Lij said he was stuck in the hotel the whole
time....then Leno says, "Who was she?" Elijah cracked up. Elijah then
made a reference to hobbits having big feet, and you know what they say
about big feet on guys...hehehe....of course, all the women in the
audience went bezerk....Then Leno asked him about the tattoo, and Lij
repeated the same old story, and Leno asked him to show it....Lij said
he couldn't cause of the pact, but the audience egged him on....and Leno
said that Ian showed his & they showed a pic of Ian showing it....so,
Lij was like, ok....he stands up, and starts doing this little
striptease kinda thing, pulling up his shirt & all....I nearly died
laughing!...It was soooo funny. but the next guest was from an animal
place of some sort, and she brought out a Linx cub, and Lij went nuts
over it....he was holding it, and it kept struggling & getting away....
was very cute....she then brought out a pair of baby monkeys, and they
were trying to feed them, but they were scared....and they kept clinging
to each other is some, ahem, rather suggestive ways, lol!....just when
the lady commented on them being very affectionate to each other, the
wound up in a most interesting position, lol!!....The whole place was
roaring with laughter!!....Lij asked if they always are so physical with
each other like that....next, she brought out a beaver, who proceeded to
poop on the floor....chaos reigned, by then...as she was carrying the
beaver over to the chair, he was still pooping, AND SHE STUCK HIM ON
ELIJAH'S LAP!!! He was like, "Oh, no!" That has got to be one of the
funniest shows I've seen in a long time! At last, something more
interesting than the same old dumb questions! Anyway, thats my Leno
report...it was definatly worth staying up late for!
LOL, Thanks Nikki! If anyone finds this clip, PLEASE send it to me??
I'm dying to see it
:: Not enough? You want pictures? Well William very very kindly captured
Elijah showing his tattoo on his digital camera :)

December 20, 2002
:: Haha, i went to the Sydney Premiere yesterday, did anyone else go? Yeh... it sucked didn't it? :P :P It totally totally sucked, i don't care what anybody says about the premiere in their city... this one was the worst! The only reason why i went was because Fox Studios advertised that Dominic was gonna be there... yeh right! They lied. 2 actors came, count em, 2! David Wenham and Miranda Otto. Oh, and like 3 producers (yippee!). Ok, so first of all they tell us to line up for 3 hours in the boiling Sydney kinda sun we have here for what we originally thought was for free tickets, but oh no, they tell us later it's for the CHANCE to win 2 tickets. So anyway, we were dying out there, they finally let us in, tell us we have to stay in there for the chance to win tickets, so we got the worst spot, i could see nothing! I got a bunch of pics of the top of miranda's and david's head. Waste of time. I just feel sorry for the poor girls who waited thinking they were gonna meet Elijah and Orli, haha, they should come to the site :P
:: What does Elijah leave out for Santa? Find out. Thanks Diana
:: Hilarious pictures of Elijah in NW Magazine: [Pic 1] [Pic 2] With the following article attached:
Article: The Lord Of The Rings stars Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan gathered some pals at LA Airport to hold a suprise farewell for a dear friend who was heading back to London. The group held up humorous signs, blew on whistles and wore daggy hats to send off there mate. They then formed a colourful conga line and danced around the terminal singing the old classic 'Kumbaya my Lord' and the Craig David hit ' Walking Away'. The Two Towers, the highly anticipated second instalment in the LOTR trilogy, opens in Australia on December 26.

:: Pissed off right now, don't know why i'm updating though. Stupid Australia, the rest of the world has seen TTT and we have to wait another week *sobs* it's so unfair. But please don't e-mail me about it because it'll just make me hate you, lol, nah, i just don't want to know what happens, i've only seen 2 of the trailers and no extra footage...i wanna save it for the big day :) Although i did try to decipher a review of it in the Sunday paper, spending a while trying to figure out what the hell a bell rock was, and why Gandalf was anywhere near one - and yes, i do now realise they were talking about the Balrog *idiots*

I won't say anything about it or anything because a lot of people still haven't seen it, so i don't want to spoil it. But it's worth the wait.

And of course, Elijah and Mandy, as well as Franka and Elijah liplocking. Also, it showed a scene wherein Elijah emerged from a fire with Franka on his back. As well as Mandy offering Elijah a helping hand (literally) and Elijah accepting it. Well, the scenes also showed Franka on crutches and Elijah with a sling on his arm. The scenes also reveal the tension between Franka and Mandy.
Can't wait to see it, thanks Aileen!
