Always & Forever: Elijah Wood

Site Info

Always and Forever: Elijah Wood is an unofficial site created by fans and for the fans of Elijah Wood. It began in 2001 by Lucy V. and is currently maintained by myself, Deenan.

Are you Elijah?

Do you know Elijah?
I have met him on several occasions but that does not mean I know him, nor do I have any connections with him. I’m just his biggest fan, but not in an Annie Wilkes kind of way.

Who are you then?
My name is Deenan (she/her), which is just a nickname and I’m “Afterschool Special” years old. I live in the United States and work full time in a not so glamorous industry. My wheelhouse is in Photography, Video Editing and Graphic Design. I love cooking, dogs, cheetahs, baseball and movies… not just Elijah’s.

How long have you done this?
I came to Always and Forever in 2003 just as a fan. I loved the site so much, I visited daily. It had practically everything I ever wanted to see or know about Elijah. I was active on the forum and became a global moderator there. After the original owner of A&F had to step down in May 2007, I, along with another fan took over the responsibility of maintaining the content on the site. Sadly, she also had to leave and I have been going solo since June 2008.

Can I use photos on your site?
Absolutely! However, you must not repost or use any artist’s work without proper credit or as your own creation. This goes for drawings, paintings, cartoons, graphics, videos and the like. Please contact the creator for their permission. If you cannot locate them, contact me. Maybe I can hunt them down for you.

How can I contact Elijah?
You can try his Twitter, @elijahwood, but that’s a shot in the dark as he has over one million followers and can’t respond to everyone. You can also try reaching out to his publicity firm:

7060 Hollywood Blvd.
Los Angeles, California 90028 U.S.A.

Sorry, but I will not have any other information than what’s stated. Thank you!
