ELIJAH WOOD'S JOURNEY WITH FRODO ~ CHAPTER FOUR ~ 'BECOMING FRODO'
I've reached the point of almost posting this several times before, but kept thinking of something else I wanted to include. It's becoming quite addictive!! So, I'm posting this without too much preamble so that it doesn't happen again:D ( CHAPTER FOUR ~ BECOMING FRODOCollapse )
"Elijah Wood’s CD purchases alone are probably keeping several music stores afloat.” I love how these scenes really took us into Elijah's life, both as a hard working actor and as a music-loving teen, and I must confess this is one of the segments where I really began to fall for him, apart from Frodo. Sharing their music is another dimension of their growing friendship and all the new influences they're picking up from each other. Along with Dom teaching Elijah how to English-swear! Wouldn't you love to be the make up artist working on Frodo? *sigh* I bet PJ knew that the feet, whether seen or not, made the actors feel more hobbity: "It was bizarre, but – just for a moment – I imagined that I really was a hobbit”. I've not seen that quote before and I just love it. It was these intimate times they all had to spend together that bonded them so well, now seen from more perspectives and without having to pause the DVD every few seconds. Thank you!
"It was bizarre, but – just for a moment – I imagined that I really was a hobbit”.
That's one of my favourite recollections of Elijah's from the set because I can really imagine just how he felt- the beautiful field, the quiet except for birdsong- and the hobbit feet!! Must have been a wonderful moment:)
