Christopher Reeve’s Son Speaks Out On Famous Father’s Reputation

ABC News correspondent Will Reeve, the youngest child of the late Superman actor Christopher Reeve and Dana Reeve, spoke about the physical resemblance between himself and his famous father at the “An Eve with Reeve” benefit for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. Will, 31, sees the public’s interest in his resemblance as a compliment, viewing it as a positive way to remember his family. He expressed gratitude for having two beautiful parents, inside and out, and stated that if he bears any physical, temperamental, or value-based resemblance to them, he considers it a compliment.

The annual gala, in its third decade, aimed to raise money for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, which focuses on advancing research and improving the quality of life for individuals impacted by spinal cord injuries. Will and his sister Alexandra Reeve Givens discussed Team Reeve’s participation in the New York City Marathon to support the foundation’s mission.

Will emphasized his ability to connect with people as his superpower, stating that he loves bringing people into the foundation’s community. He believes that fostering meaningful connections is more important than simply having a good time at events, aiming to deepen people’s connection to a cause that matters.

Christopher Reeve passed away in 2004, nine years after a spinal cord injury left him paralyzed, and Dana Reeve died of lung cancer two years later. Will has previously paid tribute to his father’s memory, reflecting on the meaning of honoring his dad and emphasizing the importance of individuals finding their own paths and identities.

The Reeve family’s commitment to the foundation’s cause continues, with events like “An Eve with Reeve” serving as opportunities to raise awareness and support for spinal cord injury research and advocacy.
