As for the day, Elijah Wood net worth amounts to $18 million and if I find this sum shocking, this is only because I have honestly expected him to be even richer. After all, there is a general agreement that Elijah is one of the most talented actors in the world. In fact, he has gained critical acclaim by the age of nine! Since then this young man has appeared in variety of block buster movies.

Elijah debuted on movies with a small role on Back to the Future Part II and went on to be nominated for Young Artist Award for Best Leading Young Actor in a Feature Film for the performance on Avalon. At that time he was only 9 years old! The boy was nominated for the exactly same award the following year (for the performance on Paradise) and finally won it in 1992, for the portrayal of Mike on Radio Flyer.
Nearly every other role that Elijah has done during the rest of the 1990s has garnered him some sort of nomination. For example, the young actor has been nominated for Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor for the role on North, Young Star Award for Best Performance by a Young Actor in a Comedy Film for Flipper and Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Supporting Actor – Sci-Fi for Deep Impact.
