Daniel Radcliffe Explained Why People Think He Looks Like Elijah Wood

“The idea of me and Elijah Wood is the same…we don’t actually look that alike.”

The early ’00s were a very magical time. The Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings franchises were at the top of the box offices, and life was good.

As many know, Daniel Radcliffe spent nearly 10 years starring as Harry Potter, while Elijah Wood played Frodo Baggins in the LOTR series.

“The idea of me and Elijah Wood is the same…we don’t actually look that alike,” he explained. “But if you imagine all our component parts, we’re just short, pale, blue-eyed, big-eyed, brown-haired people.”

Although he doesn’t think they look alike, he’d still love to do a movie with the actor. Maybe they could play brothers!

“I would love to be in a movie with Elijah Wood. At this point, it feels like it would have to be something that is consciously using the way the world sees us as linked and similar looking,” he shared. “I’m very open to pitches. There’s no way you can do that because I’m not on social media but if it’s good, it’ll get to me.”
