The Good SonBecoming Frodo

  • His change of career from child model to movie star with an early role in Back to the Future Part II.
  • How support from his family ensured that he kept his feet on the ground
  • Why no one in Hollywood has ever had a bad word to say about the young professional: “Every once in a while a kid comes along who ‘gets it’” – said Mel Gibson of his Forever Young co-star!
  • How refusing to do any more teen-themed dramas after the Horror flick The Faculty almost stalled his career
  • How his sheer determination to portray Frodo Baggins in The Fellowship of the Ring led to world-wide superstardom!
