The pandemic makes it difficult to organize a meeting
Elijah Wood is a child star with a rich film career. If his projects are oriented towards horror in recent years, rather modest, his greatest interpretation remains that of Frodo in The Lord of the Rings. Two decades later, the actor reveals that a meeting is “difficult because of COVID”.
“I don’t know if we can go to New Zealand (…) I’m almost sure it will be complicated unless there are major authorizations and some kind of access road” reports Elijah Wood, specifying that this solution is “possible” »But difficult because« this country is closed ».
For several months, access to the territory has been very difficult. The New Zealand government has locked down the country with a very low number of cases. A security that even Hollywood cannot defy according to the interpreter of Frodo.
But that the fans are reassured. Elijah Wood believes “that there will be a gathering (…) I know that we all want to celebrate together, to be able to find the perfect place for everyone, we want to sit at a giant table and raise our glass , share stories, hang out a bit ”.
