Steve Reeves

Steve Reeves Steve Reeves was, at a certain point of his career, the richest European actor. He was born in Glasgow, on the 21st day of January, 1926.

As he was training in Ed's Yarick gym (Oakland), Steve Reeves has soon realized that his genetics allowed him to develop a good physique, therefore he started to train seriously for bodybuilding. As ever hard work has good results, because he had transformed his body into one of the best from those times, he got recruited by the movie producers who wanted him for his body and charisma.

His first movie was at the age of 31, when he was called to Italy, to be the main character in the movie 'Hercules', movie that was about to be directed by Pietro Francisco. 'Hercules' was a success. As the fans were demanding another Hercules movie – with Steve Reev es, of course -, two years after the first video, he'd been invited to play in 'Hercules Unchained'.

5 years later, in 1964, he was asked by Pietro Francisco to play in an Italian western movie. Though, Steve Reeves had to refuse him, because he had a better offer from Clint Eastwood. Because he didn't think that Italians would ever be capable to make a good western movie, Steve Reeves said 'Yes' to the offer proposed by Clint Eastwood, and they've started together to work for 'A Fist Full Of Dollars'.

After years and years of training, filming, and participating at bodybuilding contests, during the filming for the 'Pompei' movie, Steve Reeves has suffered an injury at his right shoulder, injury that has put an end to its Weight Lifting career.

Unfortunately, after a long career, he was affected by cancer. On the first day of May, 2000, Steve Reeves has passed away, leaving behind a prolific and long career.
