Christopher Reeve

Today we remember actor Christopher Reeve, who passed away October 10, 2004. Although Reeve played a variety of different roles throughout his career, he is best remembered for his iconic portrayal of the Man of Steel in four Superman films. Reeve spent much of the later part of his life as an advocate of stem cell research after a horse-riding accident left him a quadriplegic. He founded the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, which is dedicated to finding treatments and cures for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury and other neurological disorders.
