Christopher Reeve's death at the weekend (10OCT04) hit British actress JANE SEYMOUR's family particularly hard - her late friend was godfather to one of her twins.

Seymour named her son CHRISTOPHER after her movie star pal, and admits the boy took Reeve's death to heart.

The actress says, "Chris just climbed in bed and he just held me really, really tight and he just was really crying.

"He was really upset and then JOHNNY, his twin, came up and tried to be comforting to him, and said, 'I lost my godfather Johnny Cash this year.'

"They said to me, 'Why is it that our godfathers both had to die?'"
