Superman star Christopher Reeve sadly passed away a decade ago, but his memory lives on through his “well-rounded and amiable” son.
“Just a delightful personality, like his dad in that respect,” she also notes of Will, who recently graduated from Vermont’s Middlebury College and now works as a writer for ESPN.
The actor’s son has a “lovely, big smile” and bears a striking resemblance to his dad, continues Johnson. “He has a good sense of himself and what he wants to do.”
Will was just 12 when his actor father, who was paralyzed in a 1995 horseback riding accident, died of an infection at 52 years old. Tragically, Will’s mother passed away just 17 months later at 44 from lung cancer.
“I never consciously viewed them as inspirations then, but their heroic efforts shaped who I am today and who I hope to become tomorrow,” Will has said of his parents.
