Before They Were Stars: Christopher Reeve in a Soap Opera

Christopher Reeve was a relatively unknown actor when they gave him the iconic title role in Superman in 1978, but it’s not like the guy just came out of nowhere. In fact, for two years during the decade, Reeve actually had a recurring role as one of the main characters on the soap opera, Love of Life. After doing an episode where his character is convicted of bigamy, Reeve decided to leave the show to pursue a film career, so his role was recast with an actor named Chandler Hill Harben… whose very first episode involved him being sodomized in prison!
