The actor used a wheelchair and ventilator for the rest of his life, but still managed to work, making public appearances to speak about his experiences and advocate for stem cell research.

He played roles in the TV series Smallville and TV movie Rear Window. He also directed the telepicture, In the Gloaming, and authored the books, Still Me and Nothing is Impossible.

He died in 2004 from an adverse reaction to a drug used to treat an infection. He was 52.
