Became +adj+Ving ? Otherwise

請問各位大師,下面兩句的文法問題,

1. 為何became 後面可以直接加 Ving? 是省略了什麼呢?

How could the handsome, rugged actor who became famous playing Superman be paralyzed from the

neck down?

2. 下面的句子中,otherwise的用法?

However, advocates like Reeve argue that stem cells from embryos which otherwise would be discarded by hospitals or fertility clinics could be used.

Thanks for your help!!

    1. 為何became 後面可以直接加 Ving? 是省略了什麼呢?

    How could the handsome, rugged actor who became famous playing Superman be paralyzed from the

    neck down?

    => The handsome, rugged actor played Superman and he became famous.

    = The handsome, rugged actor became famous (by) playing Superman.

    Word in ( ) is omitted.

    For example:

    He is fit. He exercises every day.

    He is fit (by) exercising every day.

    2. 下面的句子中,otherwise的用法?

    However, advocates like Reeve argue that stem cells from embryos which otherwise would be discarded by hospitals or fertility clinics could be used.

    => Stem cells from embryos which otherwise would be discarded by hospital

    = Stem cells from embryos which would otherwise be discarded by hospital.

    = Stem cells from embryos which would be discarded otherwise by hospital.

    In the above sentences, “otherwise” is an adverb used to modify the verb “would be discarded”.
