  • Guest Bio

    Elijah Wood is an American actor best known for portraying Frodo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s blockbuster Lord of the Rings film trilogy. In addition to reprising the role in The Hobbit series, Wood also played Ryan in the FX television comedy Wilfred and voiced Beck in the Disney XD animated television series TRON: Uprising.

    Although his first credit was a small part in Back to the Future Part II, Wood’s first major film role was in the ‘Barry Levinson’ historical family drama, Avalon. Following that, Wood became an in-demand child actor, appearing in a number of major films such as Paradise, Radio Flyer, and The Good Son, in which he co-starred with Macaulay Culkin. This was followed by the first role for which he received top-billing, North. Although the film was widely condemned and a disaster at the box office, Elijah was praised as the only good thing to come out of it. Elijah also starred in a movie remake of an old TV show, Flipper. Wood deftly transitioned into a versatile performer with roles such as the endlessly curious Mikey Carver in Ang Lee’ ensemble film The Ice Storm, as well as Deep Impact and The Faculty.

    Wood starred as Frodo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s film adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.  The actor followed his work in the astronomically successful trilogy with a broad range of interesting screen roles and voice work, including a supporting role in Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Green Street Hooligans, as well as the part of a sinister mute sociopath in Sin City. His voice work has been featured in such animated films as Happy Feet and 9, as well as on television series including American Dad!  and Robot Chicken. Wood also played Ad-Rock in the Beastie Boys’ comedic video for Fight for Your Right Revisited.

    An avid music fan, Wood founded Simian Records and released its first album, New Magnetic Wonder by The Apples in Stereo.

Will there be a panel lottery? What is it?

Yes, because of high demand, there will be a panel lottery. Entering the panel lottery gives attendees a chance to win one panel seating time per ticket in their Growtix account. No need to camp out or wait in long lines!

How many chances do I have to win?

One chance per ticket on the order associated with the email address used to register. For example, if you bought 3 tickets, you will have 3 chances to win a seating time. You could potentially win 3 tickets / seating times.

Do I need to enter more than once?

Nope, once will be sufficient. Entering more than once does not increase your chances and could possibly anger the lottery gods who will thereafter frown on your attempts to win things.

Do passes won from contests give you another chance?

Yes, they do. You get 1 entry per ticket in your GrowTix account, so passes that you won will count towards this total.

When will we be notified I won the panel lottery?

Watch for a panel lottery email from Growtix on Friday, September 22, 2017. This will include instructions on how to attend this panel event and a ticket aka QR code. Bring the QR code with you.

I won the lottery. Is my seat guaranteed?

We cannot guarantee any panel seating. Follow the directions received in your panel lottery email you received from Growtix. This will include a seating time. If you arrive at the Grand Ballroom on time, you should not have issues accessing the panel room.

I am late for my assigned panel lottery time, what should I do?

Please join the overflow line.

I am a VIP ticket holder, how does the lottery affect me?

All ticket holders, including VIP, will need to enter the lottery. If you received a panel lottery ticket, you will need to follow the instructions that come with it to get into the panel. If you do not, you will need to join the overflow line.

If I win can I bring my friend or family member with me?

No, we cannot accommodate +1s. The panel lottery ticket is for one person only. Children under 2 years old can sit on parent’s laps. Children ages 2 through 8 years old will require a lottery ticket of their own. Parents can join extra children in the overflow line.

Will there be ADA accommodation for this panel?  

There is a page to request accommodations for ADA for all panels. Those accommodations will be provided if you win a ticket for the panel. Please wait to submit the accommodations request until you have received a ticket.

How does this apply to other guests of the convention since we don’t have a traditional badge/pass (press, vendors, etc.)?

The Elijah Wood Panel will not be available to Press or Exhibitor Pass holders. Those who received their badges through some means other than a GrowTix order are not eligible for the Elijah Wood panel lottery. Please join the overflow line.
