I see you knew who he was before LotR. I only had seen him in "The Ice Storm," which I watched because Ang Lee directed it. Although I loved that film (more with each viewing) and thought all the actors did superb work in it, I never bothered to notice what "Mikey's" real name was. I only watched the rest of EW's films after becoming a fan of his work as Frodo.

Lurking in "The Faculty" thread taught me quite a bit more about him as an actor and as a person, but it still is Frodo that wows me, and it is only as Frodo that he makes me into a middle-aged puddle.

If you have gone back through my previous screencap entries, you'll see that I have a few sets of Elijah "behind the scenes" but dressed as Frodo. I thought that even though he was out of character, there was something "Frodo-ish" about him in those shots. I also posted three sets of "Flipper" caps, not because I care that much about Flipper or even EW's work in it. I just think he's gorgeous in them. He's got a fabulous face, but it is made into enchantment by the expressive way he uses it, and the camera loves to record it. I posted the Flipper series because I see them as more fodder for mentally illustrating "fanfiction Frodo" at a young age. I was amused to read in a post by Aquila that Willow-wode had actually used a Flipper cap as the basis for one of her signature Frodo drawings for RoP. "Great minds..."

Mews, I am terribly pleased you liked the Flipper caps. Now, I hope you won't unfriend me the very same day we met, but I am afraid disliked All I Want quite a lot. I know some EW fans really like the film, but I'm one of the ones that really hated it. Go figure! I agree there are some nice-looking screencaps to be had from it, but as an actual film to actually watch, I really nearly lost my love for the little guy -- as an actor, that is -- I still thought he was a lovely person.

You are very gracious, Mews. It's lovely to meet you. :)

That's exactly it.

We'll have to get adjoining seats so we can heave sighs together. ;)
