The 1990 film AVALON was Elijah Wood's first major part. While filming THE FACULTY, in 1998, Elijah Wood heard about the upcoming roles for THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY. Director George Huang, a personal friend of Wood's, filmed his audition tape for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. He shot the scene from different angles which were cut together for the video. They sent the video off to New Zealand for director Peter Jackson and a few months later, he got the part.
The biggest project thus for for Elijah Wood is THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY, based on the books by J.R.R. Tolkien.
