How much is Elijah Wood Net Worth?

Elijah Wood is a famous American actor and producer. Elijah Wood has a cool net worth of $20 million. You might know him from the film Lord of the Rings, but he has been acting since he was a young child.

Elijah started his acting journey in elementary school and became favorite among the critics. He performed in several films like “Child in the Night,” “Forever Young,” “Avalon,” “Radio Flyer,” “The Adventures of Huck Finn,” “Flipper,” “North,” “Oliver Twist,” and “Deep Impact.”

He got lots of nominations and awards for his superb acting, but it wasn’t until he played as Frodo in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy that he finally became a star.

After successfully completing four years of Hobbit adventures, Elijah kept appearing in a string of films like “Sin City,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “The Romantics,” and “Everything Is Illuminated.”

He also voiced animated characters like “Happy Feet,” “Happy Feet 2,” and 9. And he began performing dark comedy scene with the U.S. version of Wilfred in 2011.

Lord of the Rings

Elijah’s most famous role was playing as Frodo Baggins in “The Lord of the Rings” movies. The first one released in 2001, then the second released in 2002, and the third released in 2003. He continued his role as Frodo Baggins for the 2012 film “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”

Elijah’s salary for the Lord of the Rings movies isn’t out in the public. But just to give you an idea, his buddy Sean Astin revealed that he pocketed just $250,000 for the first movie.

Elijah probably got more salary as the main star, but it is not clear how much. Unlike Sean, he didn’t score any ongoing royalties from the sequels, but he does rake in nice one-time payment from merchandise sales for his promotional duties connected to the third movie.

Even though the franchise made billions of dollars worldwide, Elijah’s earnings might not be as mind-blowing as you’d think.

Other Work

Beyond “The Lord of the Rings,” Elijah Wood has done all kinds of roles in movies.

You’ve got him in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Sin City,” “Green Street,” “Everything is Illuminated,” “Bobby,” “Happy Feet,” “Paris Je T’Aime,” “The Oxford Murders,” “Day Zero,” and “The Romantics.”

Elijah also provided voice of Mumble in the Happy Feet movies. With over 100 acting credits under his name, Elijah’s been quite busy.

He starred as Ryan Newman, on the TV show Wilfred from 2011 to 2014. Then in 2016, he began starring as Todd Brotzman in the TV show “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency”.

This guy’s got so many awards to his name – he has won at least 25 awards and been nominated for more than 40 big ones.

Elijah Wood also started a record label named Simian Records and continued more voice work. And did you know he’s a DJ and producer too? Yup, he’s a man of talents.
