Elijah Wood Hopes To Avoid Mark Hamill's Fate

17 December 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Lord Of The Rings star Elijah Wood is keen to avoid the fate that befell Mark Hamill after the acclaim given to the original Star Wars trilogy. Elijah, 22, relates to the predicament of the Luke Skywalker actor - who never managed to replicate the success of the sci-fi character - but is determined to keep his career on the up. He says, "There are a lot of factors why Mark Hamill got stuck in the Luke Skywalker zone, partially because of how massive that whole thing became and there hadn't quite been anything like it. Also because nobody knew who he was before. They were only able to associate him with that role." And Elijah hopes selecting interesting roles will help him avoid being typecast as hobbit Frodo. He says, "That's the main thing, continue to work and be perceived in a different light with different characters." »

Star Wars III: Attack of the Mullets

10 July 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Star Wars movie-maker George Lucas is insisting all the characters in the new sci-fi sequel sport shaggy seventies-style haircuts - so they look like the stars of the original films. Star Wars: Episode III actors Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen, currently shooting the final installment on set in New South Wales, Australia, are showing off unfashionable "mullet" hairdos - because they were trendy when the first Star Wars film was made in 1977. An onset source explains, "The idea is that it will lead seamlessly on to the original Star Wars movie, starring Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, which was filmed in the Seventies and had certain hallmarks of that era. It's a bid for continuity. They are trying to capture the shaggy look that was popular then." »
