From Michael J Fox’s twin daughters to Julia Roberts’s lookalike teen daughter and even Elvis Presley‘s grandson; there is a lot of celebrity offspring making us do a double-take when we look at them.

But, in the case of Christopher Reeve’s 29-year-old son Will he’s not only the spitting image of his father but is working hard to continue his father’s inspirational legacy.

Tragically, Christopher Reeve’s youngest son was forced to deal with the death of his parents when he was just 13.

What does a hero look like?

For millions of people growing up in the late 70s and early 80s, a hero looked like Christopher Reeve.

His portrayal of DC comic book hero Superman, which hit our screens in 1978, earned him a BAFTA award for Most Promising Male Newcomer.

The charismatic and handsome actor went on to star in three more superhero movies: Superman IISuperman III, and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.

His name is synonymous with a famous superhero that we’ll never forget.

But Christopher Reeve, born in New York in 1952, wasn’t just an actor but a film director, producer, screenwriter, equestrian, and activist.
