An American actor, producer, film director and author, Christopher Reeve became a synonymous name and face to Superman. He played Superman since 1978, making him the face and the character since then. He became a quadriplegic in 1995 after a horse accident but that accident never stopped him from believing that there is more to life than being a character. He lobbied for people who had spinal column injuries and later on for human embryonic stem cell research.
He would have turned 59 today, September 25. He passed away on October 10, 2004.
