Video Interview: 9 actor Elijah Wood

Kate Erbland

Picture 2

By my third interview of the day, I felt like an old pro, which might be why I feel myself able to say that my interview with Elijah Wood was the best of my career. I have a feeling it's a distinction I don't see changing quickly. Wood is a genuinely warm person, who put me totally at ease within seconds of being in the room with him. But, more than that, he is also obviously passionate about his work and very mindful of the roles he takes on. In the interview, watch as we talk about what makes his character tick, some theories as to the origins of our stitchpunk heroes, and the characters that Wood loves and why.

Check out the interview after the jump!

    Thanks for the kind words, George! I think Kate did a fantastic job for her first set of interviews. She's a natural, that kid! She's got a future in this town! Going places with stars in her eyes!

    I agree with you…Elijah seems so down to Earth and friendly…just like you, my friend! ;-) Come on, you had to see that coming?

    Hope we all get to cross paths again sometime soon. Y'alls interview with Chase and Rusty is one of my favorites on the site.

    Thanks for being so kind and supportive George!

    I had a talk with Rusty, and we decided we're both claiming you as our dad. Can't wait to hang out again!

    My bestie is gorgeous! And a damn good interviewer to boot. Although I'm still bummed she didn't steal Elijah for us to keep. ;)
