Are you interested in the actors?

I'm struggling with this. The more I get into Tolkien, the more I'm interested in the actors. I'm a little concerned though. I'd like to learn more about them but would that be a good thing? I suspect many folks here know a lot but does that change the way you see them when watching the movies? I just don't want to see one of our heroes slay an orc and all of the sudden a recipe they put out on social media pops in my head. I don't want to see the beautiful waterfalls of Rivendell and for some reason an actor's recent car accident comes to mind. Or (worse case scenario) I don't want to think about their thoughts on a controversial subject in the middle of a great movie scene. Does knowing everything about the actors hurt the fantasy? I suspect for me it probably would so I guess I'll avoid it. How do you folks feel? By the way, I heard on the radio this morning that Elijah Wood had a birthday today. I think he's 38. That might be as far as I want to go with that information. Still, I have a great debt of gratitude to him and all the other folks who put Tolkien's work on the big screen and wishing him happy birthday won't hurt the fantasy.
I would respectfully request that in your responses here you don't reveal too many secrets about the actors. (although I have to admit I would be interested).
