About Christopher Reeve

American actor, film director, producer, screenwriter and author,Christopher D’Olier Reeve had an estimated net worth of $3 million.

He achieved stardom for his acting achievements, including his notable motion picture portrayal of the fictional superhero Superman.Though he has played a variety of leading roles, tall, dark, and wholesomely handsome Christopher Reeve will always be the definitive Superman to an entire generation of “Man of Steel” fans. That his definitive character was such a model of physical prowess only serves to intensify the tragedy of Reeve’s post- Superman years, marked by a 1995 horseback riding accident that left him almost completely paralyzed.

A native of New York City, Reeve was born to journalist Barbara Johnson and professor/writer Franklin Reeve on September 25, 1952. When he was four, his parents divorced, and Reeve and his brother went with their mother to Princeton, NJ, after she married her second husband, a stockbroker. Reeve became interested in acting at the age of eight, an interest that complemented his musical studies at the time. The following year, he made his professional acting debut in a production of a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta at Princeton’s McCarter Theater. He would continue to work with the theater through his early teens and further enhanced his resumé at the age of 15, when he received a summer apprenticeship to study drama in Williamstown. The following year, he secured his first agent.

Reeve went on to major in English and music at Cornell University. Following his graduation, he pursued a master’s degree in drama at Juilliard and then studied under actor John Houseman’s tutelage before heading to Europe to work at London’s Old Vic and the Comedie Française of Paris.
