Elijah Wood sat down with GQ to offer a career restrospective, with an insightful story of just how he auditioned for the role of Frodo.
If you don’t know who Frodo is, well, that would be the titular, leading character of The Lord of The Rings series. No one knew much about the adaptation at the time of casting, and Elijah drove to the casting office just to read the script. He felt so moved by the screenplay that his audition went on to span two scene in Griffith Park and another in his home as he competed for the role against many other actors at the time. Talk about going the extra mile! The full interview runs 34mins, but our biggest takeaways are Elijah’s complete dedication to playing Frodo.
