********************

Actor, director and activist are just some of the words used to describe Christopher Reeve. From his first appearance at the Williamstown Theatre Festival at the age of 15, Reeve established a reputation as one of the country’s leading actors. However, since his injury in an equestrian Competition in May l995, Reeve has put a human face on spinal cord injury.

 

Chris has become a powerful spokesperson for people with disabilities and for the benefits of medical research. His sharp intelligence, wit and curiosity have enabled him to become an advocate for all who are affected by diseases of the brain and central nervous system.

 

After graduating from Cornell University, Reeve followed his dreams of acting, studying at Julliard under the legendary John Houseman. He debuted on Broadway with Katharine Hepburn in A Matter or Gravity. Chris has distinguished himself in a variety of stage, screen and television roles, a passion that continues today. Film credits include: "Superman" in 1978 and its subsequent sequels, Deathtrap, Somewhere in Time, The Bostonians, Street Smart, Speechless, Village of the Damned, Above Suspicion, and the Oscar-nominated, The Remains of the Day. Stage credits include: The Marriage of Figaro, Fifth of July, My Life, Summer and Smoke, Love Letters and The Aspern Papers.

 




Chris made his directorial debut with "In the Gloaming" in April 1997. The film was met with rave reviews, was nominated for II Emmys and won six Cable Ace Awards, including Best Dramatic Special. Reeves autobiography, Still Me, was published by Random House in April 1998 and spent 11 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. His recording of Still Me earned Chris a Grammy for Best Spoken Word in February 1999. In his first major role since becoming paralysed, Chris starred in an updated version of the classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller "Rear Window," for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries. He also served as Executive Producer of the film.
