Actor Christopher Reeve is best known for his role in the 1978 film “Superman.” Since a paralyzing equestrian accident in 1995, Reeve has actively promoted advancements in bio-medical and rehabilitation research, founded the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation, and worked on quality-of-life issues for the disabled. He has made remarkable progress in his own recovery, and continues his work as an actor, director and activist.
This Sunday, Reeve will co-deliver the commencement address at Middlebury College with his wife Dana Reeve, a member of the school’s class of 1984. Neal Charnoff talks with Reeve, from Reeve’s home in Westchester County, New York.
