Elijah Wood fears he will always be remembered as FRODO the hobbit from The Lord Of The Rings, no matter how many great films he stars in.

The youthful actor has played a mute psycho, a sinister pervert and a soccer hooligan since starring in the hit trilogy, but to fans he remains forever Frodo.

Wood is thankful for the career boost he received from the blockbuster movies but has found their huge fanbase means he can never be anonymous again.

He tells Empire magazine, "I can't go anywhere, the Czech Republic included, without people calling me Frodo in the street.

"Do I like it? I don't know. It's not exactly something I can like. I don't know how anybody can like that. But I understand where it comes from."
