Elijah Wood Talks About The Character Of Frodo From The Lord Of The Rings Franchise

Elijah Wood became an overnight star after becoming the face of the million-dollar fantasy drama franchise Lord Of The Rings. While commemorating 20 years of LOTR, Wood appeared for an interview with The New York Times in 2021. The actor poured his heart out while talking about what he learned from the character of Frodo. He said-

One of the great messages of the book as it pertains to Frodo and the hobbits, in general, is a sense that even the smallest person, not just in stature but in terms of what one feels they’re capable of doing, is capable of greatness, of affecting real change, of having a real impact. What Frodo was up against seemed insurmountable, and yet he was able to accomplish it largely because of goodness, kindness, purity of heart, and perhaps innocence.

He further continued to say-

Those are the things that hobbits embody, and inherently why they’re able to withstand the corruption of the Ring for longer than humans. But what makes Frodo unique is a way of seeing the world without any kind of cynicism. There’s also courage, maybe even blind courage, of not necessarily knowing what’s ahead and therefore not allowing himself to be afraid. If I’m to learn one thing from all of that, it’s that there’s fortitude in his outlook that makes it all possible.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring was released in 2001 and went on to gross over $870 million against a production budget of $93 million. The massive success of LOTR’s first installment went on to pave the path for the franchise.
