Christopher Reeve, best known as Superman, had a son named Will Reeve. Even though he has been away from the spotlight, he made a rare public appearance recently.
According to American Web Media, Will had a difficult childhood as he had to help her mother, Dana Reeve, to take care of Christopher, who became quadriplegic after being thrown from a horse during an equestrian competition.
The actor passed away in 2003 and, only two years later, Dana died from a lung cancer. At that point, Will was 13 years old and hat to move to a childhood friend’s house.
As time passed by, he worked as an intern at Good Morning America as a production assistant. At the same time, he was studying at Middlebury College
Things improved for him, thankfully, as he had a minor role in The Brooke Ellison Story and provided the voice of another minor character in Everyone’s Hero. Later, in 2014, he joined ESPN’s SportsCenter as a contributor.
As he kept growing older, people found more physical similarities between Will and his father. On November 16, 2017, He surprised many when he posed on the red carpet of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation event called A Magical Evening.
Will, whose resemblance to Christopher is uncanny, was next to his half-siblings Matthew and Alexandra. Even though he could continue his career as an actor thanks to his physical appearance, he has opted to do something else.
He has been taking his time to travel around the country as a way to ‘continue where his father left off with his foundation,’ reported Daily Mail.
The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is a charitable organization that focuses itself on researching treatments and cures for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury and other neurological disorders.
Will asks people to contribute to the foundation by hosting a fundraiser, running a marathon with Team Reeve, or donating. Not only has he his father’s appearance but also his big heart.
