Keanu Reeves

Born: September 2, 1964, Beirut - Lebanon

Keanu Charles Reeves is a Canadian actor, director, producer, and musician.

He gained fame for his starring role performances in several blockbuster films, including comedies from the “Bill and Ted” franchise (1989–1991); action thrillers “Point Break” (1991), “Speed” (1994), and the “John Wick” franchise; psychological thriller “The Devil's Advocate” (1997); supernatural thriller “Constantine” (2005); and science fiction/action series “The Matrix” (1999–2003).

He has also appeared in dramatic films such as “Dangerous Liaisons” (1988), “My Own Private Idaho” (1991), and “Little Buddha” (1993), as well as the romantic horror Bram Stoker's “Dracula” (1992).

Reeves has earned critical acclaim for his acting. One New York Times critic praised Reeves' versatility, saying that he “displays considerable discipline and range... he moves easily between the buttoned-down demeanor that suits a police procedural story and the loose-jointed manner of his comic roles”.

However, Reeves has spent much of his later career being typecast.

A recurring character arc in many roles he has portrayed is one of saving the world, as can be seen in the characters of Ted Logan, Buddha, Neo, Johnny Mnemonic, John Constantine, and Klaatu. His acting has garnered several awards, including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

During his film career, Reeves has engaged in several forms of artistic expression.

Active as a musician for over a decade, he played bass guitar for the bands Dogstar and Becky.

Acting onstage, he performed as Prince Hamlet for the Manitoba Theatre Centre's production of Hamlet. He wrote the text for a picture book, Ode to Happiness, illustrated by Alexandra Grant.

He has also produced a documentary, “Side by Side”, and directed the martial arts film “Man of Tai Chi”.

In December 1999, Reeves' girlfriend, Jennifer Syme, gave birth eight months into her pregnancy to Ava Archer Syme-Reeves, who was stillborn. The strain put on their relationship by their grief resulted in their breakup several weeks later.

On April 2, 2001, Syme was driving alone on Los Angeles' Cahuenga Boulevard when she sideswiped three parked cars, rolled over several times, and was thrown from the car. Authorities believed she died instantly.
