On September 25, 1952, Christopher Reeve, nicknamed Toph (as a child), was born in New York, New York, to Franklin Reeve (professor/writer) and Barbara Johnson (journalist). At age 4, his parents divorced and Christopher and brother Benjamin Reeve (lawyer; born in 1953) moved with their mother to Princeton, New Jersey. Their mother later married her second husband, an investment banker, and Christopher has two half brothers named Jeff and Kevin Johnson.
After finishing high school, Christopher enrolled at Cornell University as a member of the class of 1974, majoring in Music Theory and English. He also spent some time studying theater in England and France, and worked at the prestigious Old Vic Theater in London and the Comedie Francaise in Paris. Having performed in school plays at age 8, Christopher was selected to study at the prestigious Juilliard School of Performing Arts in New York, alongside future life-long friend Robin Williams, under the famed acting coach John Houseman.
Christopher Reeve was involved with modeling executive Gae Exton (born 1951) from 1977 to 1987. They have two children: son Matthew Reeve (born in 1979) and daughter Alexandra Reeve (born in 1983). In 1992, Reeve married actress and singer Dana Reeve (a.k.a. Dana Morosini; born in 1961) and they have one son, Will Reeve (born in June 7, 1992).
In May 1995, Reeve was paralyzed in a horse riding accident near Charlottesville, Virginia. He once considered suicide because of his severe disabilities, but wife Dana Reeve pulled him out of the depression by saying, «I still love you no matter what. You are still you.»
Christopher died of heart failure on October 10, 2004, in Mount Kisco, New York, New York. Christopher Reeve was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Letters by Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey and an honorary degree at Stony Brook University in May of 2005.
«Either you decide to stay in the shallow end of the pool, or you go out in the ocean.» Christopher Reeve
Teenage Christopher Reeve worked at Princeton’s McCarter Theater after school and apprenticed at Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts in 1968. He toured the state with the play «Irregular Verb to Love,» opposite veteran actress Celeste Holm, and once lived in England working as a stagehand. Returning to the US, Reeve was cast to play Ben Harper (1974-1976) on the CBS daytime soap «Love of Life.»
During that time, Reeve was cast to play opposite screen legend Katharine Hepburn in his Broadway debut, “A Matter of Gravity,” and made his film acting debut with a bit part in the submarine adventure flick, Gray Lady Down (1978). After appearing in an off-Broadway production of “My Life,” Reeve joined the audition for the title role in Superman: The Movie (1978).
Despite his skinny figure, Reeve won the role and had to gain muscle and weight for the role. He subsequently underwent an intensive bodybuilding program under British weight lifting champion David Prowse, who played Darth Vader in the original series of Star Wars films. The portrayal of the muscular, handsome and brainy super hero catapulted Reeve’s name toward stardom. He nabbed BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Award’s Most Promising Newcomer and later reprised his role in the Superman sequels in 1980, 1983 and 1987.
«Look, I’ve flown, I’ve become evil, loved, stopped and turned the world backward, I’ve faced my peers, I’ve befriended children and small animals, and I’ve rescued cats from trees. What else is there left for Superman to do that hasn’t been done?» Christopher Reeve
Reeve also appeared in other films, playing a role in a tale of time-travel and romance in Somewhere In Time (1980, costarring best friend Jane Seymour), portrayed Micheal Caine’s playwright lover in Deathtrap and became an American priest in Monsignor (both in 1982).
