Christopher Reeve net worth: Christopher Reeve was an American actor and activist who had a net worth of $3 million at the time of this death in October 2004. During his life, Christopher Reeve had nearly universal admiration of both his talents as an actor and his caliber as a human being. Reeve's interest in acting first began in 1962, when at the age of nine he appeared in an amateur stage production of The Yeomen of the Guard. He went on to graduate high school and attend Cornell University, mostly because of its proximity to New York City, where he planned to embark on an acting career. He began to do just that while still in college, acting in a variety of student plays such as Waiting for Godot and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. He continued to act in and out of college, eventually enrolling at the prestigious Julliard. His first film role was a small part in Gray Lady Down, a disaster movie. It was shortly after this that he got the chance to audition for what would become his chief legacy in the world of acting: The lead role in Superman: The Movie. He landed the part, and turned in a performance that many consider the definitive screen portrayal of both Superman and his mild-mannered alter-ego Clark Kent. Reeve's acting career was tragically cut short in 1995, when he was paralyzed from the neck down after a horse riding accident. After this life-changing injury, he worked largely as a philanthropist and crusader for scientific research that could in the future cure paralysis, which would be an even greater contribution to the world than portraying Superman.
