"Elijah Wood embodies a different sort of performer - one with integrity, wit, human gifts, humility, humanity, fun, good looks and the ability to survive. He has resisted the compulsions of the Hollywood scene and yet did not sacrifice his youthfulness, giving vent to his enthusiam in ways that engulf him, sate him and still endulges and benefits others. He is gracious to other people, his fans, his family, his colleagues and is a consumate professional. And although there are other performing personae who might fit this bill, they are few and far between. In addition, he listens to his heart, to the world about him and his better nature. He is an example to young and old, and continues to provide examples in the form of his professional appearances both on and off the screen. It is easy to explain to anyone why I'm an Elijaholic, but since you asked . . . I'll tell."

--Ed Patterson, in answer to another fan who asked why he's an Elijah Wood Fan.
