He co-starred in the blockbuster ‘Deep Impact’ (1998) as well as in sci-fi horror ‘The Faculty’ (1998). Whilst these roles did not allow Wood much scope for character development, they added further likes to his growing versatility as an actor.
He added three films which never made it into wide release: ‘Black and White’ in 1999, ‘The Bumblebee Flies Anyway’ (1999) and ‘Chain of Fools’ (2000). Then the role appeared for which Wood is best known and which made him a star. It was that of the furry-footed hobbit, Frodo Baggins, in Peter Jackson’s blockbuster film trilogy version of J.R.R.

Wood was also the First Assistant Director on Sean Aston’s ‘The Long and Short of It’ in2003.
He played opposite Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffolo and Kate Winslet in the wonderful and slightly off-beat ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ in 2004). He starred as a cannibalistic serial killer, with Mickey Rourke, in this visually spectacular but chilling adaptation of Frank Miller’s crime noir comic book series In ‘Sin City’ in 2005.

The film had its debut at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. The next year saw him star alongside John Hurt in the thriller film ‘The Oxford Murders’, in which he played a graduate student. This was followed by a voice role in producer Tim Burton’s animated feature film ‘9’.

On 4 January 2007, Wood joined Alan Rosenberg, President of the Screen Actors Guild, to announce the nominees for the 13th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
An intensely private person, Wood prefers to keep his romantic relationships out of the media spotlight. He dated German actress Franka Potente in 2002 and was rumored to have dated Bijou Phillips, his co-star from ‘Black and White’ in 1999, but in September 2005 he confirmed this as untrue.
His current girlfriend is Pamela Racine, a backup dancer for ‘Gogol Bordello’, a gypsy punk band from New York City. The couple met in 2004, on the set of ‘Everything Is Illuminated’ in 2005, and began their relationship a while later.
Wood’s generosity of spirit is appreciated by all who know him and is evident in the charity work he does. His focus is on helping children and he supports Keep A Child Alive and YouthAIDS/ALDO. His talent, experience and the careful selection of a variety of roles, has enabled Wood to avoid typecasting.
He has been nominated for innumerable awards and won several others. With a career spanning nearly two decades, this talented actor, singer, musician and music director is only in his mid-twenties. His mix of affability and dedication to his career will certainly continue to ensure a productive work life ahead and give us much to anticipate from him in the future.

Corey Feldman, another former child actor who said in films such as Gremlins, The Goonies and Stand by Me in the 1980s, has said that as a young teenager he was “surrounded” by abusers.
He told a British tabloid that when he was 14 and 15 older men had been “leching around like vultures” in 2012. The actor suffered mental health problems, alcoholism, and drug addiction. he added that he had spared similar experiences while growing up because his mother had not let him attend parties.
