From Imdb.com, with editing:

Elijah Jordan Wood was born on January 28, 1981 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Warren and Debbie Wood. He has an old brother Zack and a younger sister Hannah. Elijah owns two dogs: Rascal and Levonne. At an early age, Elijah showed a knack for entertaining and wowing audiences, and his mother decided to take him to Los Angeles for an Annual International Modeling and Talent Association Convention. He quickly landed himself a job in the fabulous world of acting. Soon he began popping up in commercials and then in small parts on television, but he got his first major part appearing in Avalon (1990) in 1990.

Elijah's acting career shot off from there, appearing in films such as Paradise (1991), Radio Flyer (1992), and Forever Young (1992) with Mel Gibson. After Good Son, The (1993) with Macaulay Culkin, Elijah appeared in North (1994). Deep Impact (1998) and Faculty, The (1998) were produced after that, and with immense support. In 1999 Elijah was in three movies that never made it into wide release: _Bumblebee Flies Anyway, The (2000)_ (released on satellite TV), Black and White (1999) (released on home video), and Chain of Fools (2000). Elijah next went to work on what has been called the biggest project ever to hit the movies, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, based on the books by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Yeah, um. All that. But really, I'm just a geek. Acting's just my job.

I'm not really Elijah Wood; this is a character journal set up for the enduroare_rpg community.
